    Great evening out, enjoying 'Low Country' comfort food. We've traveled the Carolina's and the fare served at The Porch is absolutely authentic.

    I had high hopes for this restaurant since I’ve seen such yummy looking pics of the food in social media. I got the chicken and waffles and unfortunately the chicken was so so dry it was hard to get down. My partner had brisket and biscuit, it was good but had a lot of kick from the chili flakes so beware if you don’t like spice. Mimosas and beignets were amazing.

    Sunday Brunch 6/26/22 was very disappointing. Biscuits were hard and seemed stale. Eggs were cold. Server didn't ask how our food was, but she could see we ate very little of it. My first and final visit to The Porch.

    We typically really enjoy this spot but last nights service was not very good. We had 6 o clock reservations. Our food took over an hour and was not the quality we have come to expect here. We had show tickets for 8 pm and could not wait to send back the food. We had to ask a couple times about the status of our food, drinks were not refilled etc. For 100.00 for dinner for 2, I hoped for more.

    Took my friend there for her birthday. Have always loved it here but so sad I had a bad experience. Our waiter “forgot” to put our drink order in and drinks didn’t come until after our food came out. Ordered chicken and waffles and chicken was too done and rubbery. The birthday girl hardly ate anything. The waiter asked us how our meal was and we we’re honest…He said he likes his Chicken too done because it comes out raw sometimes. Totally dismissed us. So sad I won’t be back. Really feel like we should have been comped somehow and then he didn’t even do anything special for my friends birthday. I hope the owners see this and acknowledge that they don’t want their business run this way. Making the guests feel special is EVERYTHING

    I’ve completed almost 150+ US reservations in OpenTable, while also eating at 50+ restaurants in Canada and Europe from 3 star Michelin restaurants to dives. However, The Porch was one of the best experiences I’ve ever had in over 40 years of dining, as the food and drinks were perfect, while Robert ‘s attention to detail and friendliness were nothing short of incredible!

    Lovely spot! Perfect for a retirement celebration with a friend. Eggs were cooked perfectly sausage was rubbery, and the biscuit was hard and dry. The watermelon salad was delicious and so were our mimosas. The service was great!!

    Food was great this time around! We enjoyed everything we ordered (shrimp po' boy, brisket & biscuit, chicken & waffle). Service is slow each time I go but we had a nice time celebrating Father's Day and they were very kind when I requested an adjustment to our reservation earlier in the week.

    Amazing service—Robert did a great job helping us navigate the menu. So many interesting variations on classic dishes—a symphony of flavors. The fried tomatoes were to-die-for; the baked Brie was the table’s favorite—be sure to construct the perfect bite! Robert brought us extra toast to ensure we enjoyed every bit of the Brie. Definitely get the bacon w the Mac n cheese! Fried chicken was classic deliciousness. Loved the gumbo as well—lovely blend of powerful flavors, which off set each other and worked together so as not to overpower the palate. We all agreed: Porch was A+

    Went with a group for my husband’s retirement. Drinks always a runaway hit! We decided on some appetizers, which were amazing. We ordered cauliflower, Mac and cheese and the delicious brie. Well, we got so full we barely touched our dinners. Grits my fave, had jambalaya this time. Wonderfully spicy! Overall. love this place!

    Beignets were extremely dense. Cornbread was very dry and flavorless. I would not order either ever again. The smokey Bloody Mary was a unique twist and tasted great.

    Everything was great! We were celebrating my birthday and they personalized the menu with my name before we arrived. We enjoyed all of our food selections (loved the house made jam - had that with the skillet cornbread, chicken and waffles, and then beignets!) I could eat it all day. Would def go back

    Food and service were great. Southern food is a nice break from normal menu selections. The portions were generous. The location was perfect for our outing in Sacramento. The exterior needs a little spiffing up....we thought it was closed when we walked up.

    Sat down around 6:20 for a 6:15 reservation and ordered by 6:30. The restaurant was not busy upon arrival but filled up shortly after we placed our order. Finished our drinks well before food showed up (ordered shrimp po’boys - delicious!); food arrived hot, but very late. Waited about 25 minutes for food. Manager was helpful and brought check with our food as we had to be somewhere soon after food finally arrived.

    I'm not sure what happened. New chef? Supply chain issues? How does a Southern Comfort food restaurant run out of gumbo before the dinner rush? Frozen cauliflower and corn? Only enough mint for 2 julips? The Porch should rename itself to the "Back" Porch as you'll probably need to send something back to the kitchen!
