This was my first visit at the Porch. My first impression was the friendliness of staff. Our server was extremely helpful concerning the menu and willing to accommodate and modify entree for our preference. The food was good and beautifully presented. I will come back. Also left a referral on Google. We failed to take pictures because we were over eager to taste our food. Lol

Food was good, but service was slower than I prefer. Dining room wasn't overly busy, but the waitress had trouble keeping up. She was pleasant and accommodating, but it took much too long to pay our bill when the meal was done.

Been here many times, never disappointed. The fried chicken dinner is easily enough for 2 people, provided of course, you order the Mac n cheese appetizer. Pair this with the fume blanc, you will not be disappointed.

We often dine at The Porch after performances at the theater. As always the food was superior in taste and preparation. Service was excellent, an enjoyable dining experience. Well worth the time and the cost is very moderate for what is received. Great bar selection as well.

Food was fair; heavy and substantial portions. Nothing to rave about.
Service was spotty. Took forever to get my water, as requested.
Nice, comfortable atmosphere.
Lots of options in midtown; this wouldn't be a first pick for dinner, but might consider again for dinner....or brunch.

We enjoyed all the cocktails and dishes we sampled. I recommend the grilled goat Brie app. The friendly service seemed a bit rushed especially when mains arrived and we were half way through actively eating our appetizer. The servers weren’t tuned in to pacing of a weekend “event” meal (meaning we had no other plans than a nice dinner).

It was a busy Fri night so I made a reservation. We got there and it still took about 5 min to seat us. We got our appetizer quickly but after that our dinner didn't come out for over an hour and the waitress didn't ever offer an apology or information on the long wait. Overall, I wouldn't come back for dinner. Unfortunately, they don't seem prepared for busy nights. I really love the ambiance but that was about it. I really had high hopes for this place and was so disappointed.

It was vegan chef's challenge and my dear friend Megan being a Vegan was super excited to participate for the first time.

The vegan fried green tomatoes were absolutely delicious. Me being a non a vegan totally enjoyed my lamb shank and hope they will continue to offer it because I want to bring my husband back to try it.

However vegan Megan did not like her dinner entree with butternut squash puree and some kind of potato cake. She was disappointed and our server didn't come back for a while after we got our dinner, we almost almost missed our comedy show. The show started late so thank God.

I was a little bummed we didn't get to try any desserts.

Our server was very nice and courteous.

Birthday brunch! Overall enjoyable but a few hiccups:

- Couldn't find gin to make a featured gin cocktail. The drink ended up coming out after we were done eating.
- Food was verging on cool when we were served.

The restaurant was busy, but not full, and the waitress was friendly, drinks and food were great, HOWEVER, the service was extremely slow. We waited over an hour for our food. For a restaurant to be so slow on a Saturday evening was really unacceptable, therefore I would not recommend this restaurant for that reason.

Breakfast came out cold, biscuits and gravy had a sweet topping vs the typical salty, savory taste. The place was only half full when our food arrived at 10 am on a Saturday. Sacramento has much better breakfasts to be had all over midtown and East Sac.

I travel all over this country and have spent a lot of time in the Gulf and South. I am always experimenting with food and eager to try new places to eat while on the road. The Porch is as good as it gets. Their Shrimp PoBoy is as good if not better than anything I have had in New Orleans!!! Everything we ate here was excellent and love the feel of the dining as well. As soon as I walked up, I felt like I was in some diner down in the South. A MUST EAT while in Sacramento!

Love the vegan options - cauliflower po boy. So nice to sit on the 'porch' and enjoy the evening. Great service, atmosphere and food. Just a really cool spot in midtown that makes you feel like you are in South Carolina.

Great Southern food, for someone like me, not from the South. Don't know how "authentic" the Southern menu is, but the food was tasty and filling. The fried chicken, mashed potatoes, and fried okra were very good! Our waitress was very friendly and very helpful!

Been frequenting The Porch more often since they always have vegan options on the menu now. Vegan food is outstanding and probably the best value on the menu. I continue to enjoy the high quality of the bartenders as well when it comes to making cocktails.

We love this place. We just recently moved to Sacramento and have been looking for a really great fried chicken place when we can't get to Napa. This is the place. The chicken is incredible. Huge pieces and the sides are massive - you will have enough to take to work for lunch for days. The chicken is crunchy and moist (has been doing a backstroke in buttermilk for hours). We love the mashed potatoes and the grilled corn-on-the-cob (not mushy, great flavor). Their fried chicken salad for brunch is so good. Highly recommended!
