Steakhouse
At The Porter’s House our people are the heartbeat; Serving others well fills our souls. 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.

The food was ok, but nothing special for the high price tag. Plus the noise level got extremely high at times.

Service, food and wines were excellent. The filet was probably the best I’ve ever eaten.. cooked to perfection and the aged beef left nothing to be desired .
I would recommend Porter House to anyone .

Great food. Good service. A little pricey for the ambiance and a little noisier than I remember but the food was outstanding. Drinks tasted a little watered down. Parking is difficult. Almost required to Valet.

This is a solid restaurant. I eat here regularly, mostly for business dining. The staff, atmosphere, bartending and food are all excellent. I think it's one of John Dressler's best venues.

Went for birthday celebration with a party of 9. Our reservation was 7:45 and we were sat a little after 8:00 but the restaurant had a glass of wine for each of us at the table as an apology. Waitress new the menu and helped us make selections all were happy with the meal.

Food was excellent and our server, Adam, was wonderful! Only disappointment was that we had indicated we were celebrating our wedding anniversary and there was no mention of it during our meal nor did we receive seating I would consider special.

The food was delicious, but I was surprised for a Saturday evening there were no specials being offered. I was disappointed with their cocktail menu. The cocktails consist of mainly burbon, rye, whiskey. They need to offer other cocktails that contain vodka. They are lacking in a good cocktail selection.
The service was great and the food was excellent.

We had our Anniversary dinner here. Everything was good. Our server Adam was excellent . We were disappointed however because the website says business causal. We were dressed up for our dinner celebration. Everyone that we saw come in was in ripped jeans, T-shirts, flip flops.

Made a note when making the reservation asking for the best table for Grandpa’s Birthday, and got there to find out they had reserved a cozy private room with round table off of the bar area. It definitely started off our night with a happy surprise! It reduced the noise level considerably and gave us our own private party. Food, Drinks & Service were marvelous & accommodating. We had a great time!

A local jewel!

After a few years of passing in front of the restaurant, we finally decided to give it a try. It was totally worth it. Every food item was delicious, steaks of the highest quality, cooked exactly to perfection. We should have tried earlier. Highly recommend.

The cocktails, food, and service at The Porter’s House was excellent! Adam was our waiter and he made the experience exceptional. My only slight criticism was the music choice. It seemed out of place but did not take away from the meal.
