Try the Old Fashioned. Never go wrong with the Fried Chicken - enough for two.

It took the server extremely long to come back to take our meal and drink orders. We had to ask for two straws twice in order to get them. We were barely asked how our food was tasting so we just boxed it, paid, and left.

Food and service were solid. We were really far down on the sidewalk so I think we got forgotten about a few times. Overall a good experience.

First time dining at The Porch and we will definitely return. Outdoor dining in February isn't the most comfortable, but they made the best of it. It got a bit chilly after the sun went down and we asked for a heater to be brought over to our table and it was done. And the food......OMG, so good, especially the biscuit. Wow!

Can't wait to go back for brunch next time.

Food is pretty basic. The skillet cornbread and Mac and cheese starter didn’t have much flavor. I did enjoy the meatball sandwich (vegan) that I ordered.
Honestly, I don’t think we will go back.
Service was really good but as far as food goes, I just wasn’t impressed.

The food was delicious. The service was slow. We weren't checked on at all after getting our food. I never got a refill on my beverage. I also had to go up to the front counter to ask for a box and my check. I understand we're in the midst of a pandemic, so it's okay. The delicious food made up for it.

I love Southern dishes and The Porch excels in its contemporary take on Brunch favorites. The Porch, does not excel, however, in its service. The service.on my third and most recent visit was truly disappointing. Troy had an attitude the moment we arrived when he appeared to have struggled with the check-in screen. The snappiness continued when I reitetated my request for a specific table away from the door (noted on my reservation). He said he couldn't seat us on the corner table because it was meant for a larger group. It was Wednesday, 10:30 AM, and there was only one other couple present. Also, a larger group did not arrive until we were almost done. Understandable reasoning but the delivery could have been better. When we were seated, he noticed the bottle of bubbly we brought and with an attitude, he quipped, "We have a corkage fee." I knew because I called. He did not make an effort to welcome us or even fake a sense of engagement. He uncorked the bubbly and poured it in silence almost to the top of the fat glasses. My friend and I had to make the subsequent pours because even when I watched Troy glance at our empty glasses, he never came to re-pour. It was when we were ordering that I was even more perturbed. I asked for my potatoes to be extra crispy and he had to argue with me that it could not be done. I stood my ground and told him, "please just ask the chef." For goodness sakes, it wasn't mashed potatoes, gratin, or a puree, and could definitely be made extra crispy. When my plate arrived, the potatoes were made as I requested; and it was even more evident that there was no need for Troy to be argumentative. I understand he may have been frazzled, especially with the additional requirements Covid-19 safety necessitates, but there is no need to have an attitude toward customers and to make them feel like you're doing them a favor by serving them.

FAIL. 100% FAIL!

The Porch and Open Table collectively ruined a special family lunch, which we never even got to order*. Got to the restaurant 10 minutes early and the rude hostess (11/11/2020 12:50PM) said we didn’t have a reservation, even though I showed her my Open Table confirmation. She wouldn’t even talk or come up with a solution, just blabbered on about other people waiting (when we had reservation, which you do when you don’t want to wait). No help, nothing. We drove over an hour to get to Sacramento and she just shut us down. Maybe there was a disconnect between OT and The Porch, doesn’t matter she wasn’t going to help. Her answer “Technology!” Well, Porch, get off Open Table if you can’t do technology. We definitely will never do the Porch again. Completely ruined our whole day trip.

* Note in fairness to the kitchen and wait staff, we never got to see you because of ungracious hostess, so ignore our one star. Might want to rethink your hostess.

They need to dust and deep clean this place badly! Friendly staff and solid food but there was literally dust everywhere! I’m not talking about on out of reach places either, but dust at eye and table level.
