The worst ever in life
The AC was out and our poor server was drenched in sweat bc he was so warm. Needless to say the service wasn’t great bc he was so miserable, but considering the circumstances I’ll cut him some slack. We’ve had much better experiences there. They should’ve brought in some fans or something! We heard another couple leaving saying they’d never be back.
Every thing we ordered was fantastic! I don't really eat chicken but I ordered their hot chicken and biscuits and my husband had chilaquiles. I have no complaints. They were busy but the servers were attentive.
The food was just very off. We hadn’t been to The Porch in some time and don’t think we’d be back just isn’t what it once was.
Good food and service. Even with the steady breeze on the patio, the flys were abundant.
We were seated immediately upon arrival. They were very safety conscious by sitting patrons with a table in between each party. Our waitress server was very attentive. The food came quickly and was tasty. I originally ordered the avocado toast with salmon. After my order was submitted to the kitchen the manager came out to apologize stating they had ran out of salmon. My replacement order was maple pancakes w/eggs, and my meal was comped.
Our first time at The Porch but we will certainly return. The food was very good - I had the Spicy Chicken Sandwich and my wife had the Short Rib with pasta. We both thought the Short Rib was particularly good as the pasta was a perfect complement to the dish. Nice setting (we dined inside), although it was a bit loud. Looking forward to our next visit!
Went for brunch and the food was exceptional!
Had brunch on the patio and it was great - accept our table slanted... but overall good experience.
It was the company I was with that made the experience exceptional
Cocktails were fantastic! However, the Grain bowl wasn't very good.
Our server was great! Food was delicious!! Get dessert
Great food and great service! We had a wonderful experience.
I had a great date. The service was awesome!
Food and service has always been great every time I go.
Hadn't been in a while and the place seemed a little tired. Not much energy going on. We had an "assumptive close" waiter who had been trained to up-sell which is a little obnoxious.
Food was good and beer was cold...and that always helps!
Taylor was a great waitress - our Sunday Funday outing was perfect, even with the torrential downpour outside LoL! The hostess was super sweet as well, very welcoming.
Food was hot and fresh, brought out in a timely manner and we really enjoyed ourselves.
Everythubg was great!!
super cute and would definitely recommend! loved the atmosphere but wished the menu was larger
Not too many gluten free options but what they do have is always amazing! I love their Scottish salmon and perfectly garlicky spinach. My friend had the grain bowl and loved it too.
The patio was super loud. The menu and wine list was less than desirable. Wait staff was nice. I won't go back.
This is not the same Porch as before. The menu is similar but signature dishes have changed.
Great service and atmosphere ! Make sure to reserve patio ahead of time
Came here for Mother’s Day for a reservation at 11:15 AM. Right off the bat the waitress was extremely rude. This continued our whole experience. She didn’t wish my mother happy Mother’s Day, she wasn’t friendly, I don’t even think she smiled. She made sure to tell us how many reservations they had throughout the day and that she was busy. The place had more than 16 open tables, it was not busy. I’m not sure how she was a waitress because she had no personality. I may come back solo in the future but it was embarrassing for my wife and my mother to sit through that service.
The porch used to be our go to place. Always good service and good food priced well. Very few people were there. Service was mediocre. Food was good. Just wasn’t the same atmosphere and fun vibe it used to have. I am afraid it isn’t long for this world if they don’t pick up the service and get more people in there. There was a rumor over the summer it was closed for good. Maybe people think that is true. So sad.
Good food and ambiance- our server was one of the worst we’ve had in a long time. He obviously did not want to be working, was very slow and would hardly even stop at our table when we needed a spoon, salt, sweetener, etc.
Food and service were outstanding! Love the Porch. Will be back soon!
A very condensed menu for brunch. Service is okay, for it not being very busy, service staff seemed to be struggling. Drinks were really tasty and the food we did get was also delicious. As I said, 4 stars based on service and the condensed menu for brunch.
Enjoying a date night with my husband if 23 years. We enjoy going out and experiencing different t foods. We don’t have many lectins due to being pescatarian but this was a great option.
Service was slow, food was below average. Went for a special occasion and were just disappointed.
Taylor was awesome. She was very attentive, engaging, and got answers to our questions. The food was great, and Taylor made it a memorable experience.
When reserving a table ask for one that is not under a speaker. The music if a bit too loud and as the floor is a hard surface it tends to increase the volume. Otherwise the food is very good and the service is excellent.
This is a solid spot for a casual lunch or dinner. The food is excellent and the bar is great. I like the lowkey friendly vibe. The burgers and short rib stroganoff are especially good. Definitely one of my favorite spots to meet friends.
The pickup was exactly what we ordered, cooked nicely, tasty and in good portions. 2nd time this week that I have been to the Porch. Just a couple more Healthy (Keto) sides would be nice.
Food and service were great. Really enjoyed our meal!!
Restaurant in the past and it used to be one of our favorites. After our disappointing experience last night, we will not be back. Food has become bar food, the service was so bad the drinks we ordered did not arrive until after we finished our meal. The lackluster service was icing on the cake.
Wasn't bad, but wasn't great either. The bar really had a hard time getting my companions drinks right. I had the Salmon burger, naked (without bun) and it was very dry.
But, two of our party had the Banana pudding for dessert, and both said it was the best they had ever had!
Good food, predictable service, patio service available. Make a reservation for busy nights!
Fantastic creative food - fresh ingredients and super service
I wanted to love it like I normally do, but on this trip, the patio was super loud, service was slow, and food was just ok. Hoping for a better experience next time.
