Rooted in the generous hospitality made legendary by porters of the past, we pay homage to the timeless traditions of quality, care, richness, and warmth. That legacy of personal service, humble elegance and legendary experiences drives us. It extends into the ingredients we source, the fine spirits that fill our bourbon room, and the thickness, tenderness and marbling of signature porterhouse steaks. When you come to our house, The Porter’s House, every meal is an occasion.

I ordered my filet rare but it came Med rare and it was very dry. I didn’t say anything because I was with family and didn’t want to wait on my dinner or detract from my company. Everyone else loved their steaks and the lobster Mac n cheese was fantastic. I liked the pumpkins risotto, but I think it would have been better with the pumpkin puréed into the risotto rather than chunks of the pumpkin added. Our server was fantastic! Overall it was a very nice experience and we love going. We have been several times and this definitely won’t stop us from going again.

We invited some friends to join us for dinner and they had never been to Porter's and they had a great experience. Jeff and the other bartenders all made a point to come by our table and it made a great impression. Our server was on point as well so a great night overall.

I had the Joyce Farms chicken, it came with root vegetables and green beans and I had the Caesar. My friend had the sirloin and substituted fries for spinach. Had a bottle of the Arrowood Cab. Then, topped the din er off with coffee and Moms Cheesecake. Really nice restaurant, food perfectly prepared, good wine list and choices. Server was a professional, very attentive. Will make this a regular place.

Our waiter was wonderful and attentive. He provided great service. The food was just ok. I had the lobster macaroni but there was no visible lobster in the dish. The brownie was very good.

Pro's Overall experience was very good. Service was very good Crab cakes were extremely good!
Con's; Everything priced very high, If we went back would NOT order drinks; crazy expensive (its just a drink a fancy description does not change that fact) Although Salmon tasted great on first bite, after that it was very salty to the extent it became hard to finish if not for the fantastic texture. Salt is hard to get right Chefs forget you can easily add but never take away. The crispness could still be achieved with very high heat and less salt. Hanger steak was very good but the portion was better suited for a small child however it was priced for 2 adults.

Very slow kitchen. Shrimp appetizer had to be sent back twice due to be way undercooked. Gave up on that but ended up a steak cooked rare but ordered medium. Server was great but kitchen definitely had problems. Poor experience overall and major disappointment.

Food and service both get high marks. We, the eight of us, were in the private room at front which we requested. It was close but we enjoyed being more private. Thank you for a delicious and enjoyable evening.

My husband and I went to Porter’s House for my birthday and we were treated extra special by the very attentive staff and waiter. The food was great and service exceptional. I felt very special and the restaurant made the night particularly memorable. My husband had a steak that was cooked perfectly and my halibut also was seared just so. The crime brûlée we had for dessert was also heavenly. I highly recommend.

We were a party of 3. For our starter we ordered the Land Board which was loaded with various meats, cheeses, pickled vegetables, condiments, and included crackers as well as Arugula. Delicious. We all selected a steak (two of us chose filet and one chose heart of ribeye) which were cooked to perfection. The best part of our experience was our wait-staff Angela! She was attentive, knowledgeable, friendly and took such good care of us. She really made the dining experience special. The next time I dine at The Porter’s House I’ll be sure to request Angela.
