Generous portions of delicious southern comfort food! They have an excellent drink menu and the “bowls” are a great deal. I love how they change the menu while keeping a few favorites year round. It’s lovely inside when it’s allowed to be open. We will definitely be back!

Troy made the brunch worth it! I think the food is a bit pricey but the drinks were amazing. They have set up a comfortable outdoor dining and the service was IMPECCABLE!!

Dined outdoors due to COVID. Tables are at a decent incline which can make extended seating uncomfortable. Also on a busy street so a fair amount of street noise.

Food was fantastic! Great flavors, good portions. We started with Brussels sprouts with BBQ sauce and Gorgonzola. Hubby had the pork chop and I had the shrimp and grits. Both were delicious and we brought plenty home for lunch the next day.

I have heard multiple times how great this restaurant is. I figured we would try it for the first time on my mom’s Birthday. The service and food was amazing. We will definitely be back and it will be our new ‘go to’ when we have guests. The prices we very inexpensive in comparison to the size and quality of the meals. AMAZING!!!

The experience from the restaurant was great. Outdoor seating was uncomfortable and homeless people were in the courtyard but that’s not the fault Of The Porch or the covid outdoor dining situation.

The server, Alexandre was not pleasant, while pouring wine for my wife he spilled some on the table and didn’t apologize, I told him I was torn between two items for dinner and sought his advice and he said “up to you”. He checked on us once in passing to another table. Just a negative experience and if seated at his table - I won’t go back

I’m very happy to see the extended seating on the sidewalk, the host was great and everyone seemed to be happy and enjoying their time.

The food was fantastic and the staff did the best they could with the new dining rules in Sacramento. Dining was in the street because dining indoors is not allowed due to COVID. The table were hard to dine on as the are leaning badly due to how the street sits. Although, there were large barriers between the cars and our table, the cars made it difficult to eat without watching the cars that were very close to us.

Barriers have been placed between the outdoor seating and the street so they could add more tables. They have umbrellas that they will move to make sure you are in the shade.

We had to eat outside because of covid, but it was nice. It was a little loud as we were next to the road, but I would gladly go again, the experience was wonderful and the waitstaff was excellent.

The food is a bit of a mixed bag, the biscuits and gravy was delicious, the chicken was okay, the mashed potatoes weren’t very good, the beignet was delicious for California, and the chicken fried steak was pretty good. Overall, I would go back.

The portions are large. The chef is very creative and I've always been surprised and pleased.

Due to social distancing, they extended the outdoor seating into the actual bike lane, with a safe traffic barrier to separate the street from the seating area. The weather was great and sitting outside was preferable to inside. It's wise to RSVP.

There is paid parking next to the restaurant. You can pay for parking with the Park Mobile app.

Took my dad and husband out for Father's Day. We had a reservation and were promptly seated. The restaurant was fully prepared for COVID-19, and was clear about the needs for a mask when not at your table with your party. I think they handled it well and the COVID restrictions did not distract from the great meal and service. Our party started with cocktails and their bourbon selection was stellar - was impressed with their presentation overall for craft cocktails. The starters were fun and very southern; fried green tomatoes, brussel sprouts, etc. everything we tried was delicious. Everyone in our party tried a different main course and we all shared; Shrimp and Grits, Shrimp Po'Boy, Mac'n Cheese with Bacon, and a double-side of Okra. We loved every bit and sharing. This spot is a gem for Sacramento; food and cocktails were both impressive! Will definitely we back.

Two small issues..The hostess has too many things to be in charge of. Answering the phone, seating, helping with online orders, and setting the table. I did have a reservation and I was surprised our table wasn't set before we arrived. Second, it would be helpful if the face makes worn wasn't really thick material. It makes it hard to hear the wait staff. This was a very enjoyable evening and the food was delicious.

I love the food at this restaurant and I've gone here for many years, it didn't not disappoint! We ate outside so it was loud periodically when motorcycles went by. We had a lovely time with our friends and we enjoyed everything that we ordered. I can't wait to go back!

The seating was very conducive to the current restrictions. The food was great as usual and the service was very thorough and clean, even the straws were put into a small glass for us to grab from. We will be back.

We had a fantastic meal on Thanksgiving day at the Porch. There were six in our party. We were seated right away. Starters and food came in a timely manner. We enjoyed ourselves so much, we made reservations for Christmas.

We arrived early and caught the happy hour for the most amazing drinks and knowledgable bartender. Dinner was delicious but we want to definitely return for the Porch happy hour! I enjoyed an amazing side dish of brussel sprouts and the macaroni and cheese was divine. Great place for special occasions.
