Ate here on a Sunday around lunch time. It wa very busy, which may explain the poor service. We had to wait forever for drink refills and to pay our bill at the cash register. The chicken fried chicken, meatloaf and vegetables we had were very tasty. The buffett had very few options so we passed on it, but the... More

I've been looking for a place in Kentucky with a good hand breaded tenderloin and The Porch is the place. It's a very clean restaurant and most all is homemade. They even make their own hand cut and fried potato chips. Yummy, this is something you must try. Very reasonable prices and the wait staff is friendly and helpful.

If this place doesn't change they will be OUT OF BUSINESS, just like The Cove. Came in, it's a seat yourself, no problem. The problem was almost all the tables were dirty, not sure if they had a rush of people, not enough help, or just lazy help. Either way server had to clean a table for us. Only 2... More

The Porch is a delightful little restaurant in Russell Springs with wonderful Kentucky spirit and atmosphere. Everything is homemade. A full menu of some Kentucky classics and traditional dishes as well. Wonderful homemade desserts!

It is a cute little restaurant and the food is ok, but it takes a long time to get waited on and to get your food. They have a buffet on weekend, but I don't do Buffet's some have said it was good. I have eat there many times and may again, prices are average also ($7.00-$14.00) something like that.

We stopped here for lunch on a business trip rather than go to a fast food place. It's very country and the good was just ok. Their homemade chips were very good.

Been many many times, and never had anything that wasn't good. I write this to assure others, looking for a "hometown" atmosphere, good cooking, & very good waitresses, The PORCH is a sure bet to please you. The best, of its type, in this area.

We stopped here while going through Russell Springs. Had passed by several times and never went in. We were pleasantly surprised. It is a nice little place. Waitress was very efficient and took our order. I had a fried catfish sandwich and it was delicious. My husband had their hamburger and thought it was very good. It is very reasonably... More

Second time we've visited. First time lunch and hamburgers were very, very well done and dried out. The buffet was horrible...everything canned and processed. Will never go back. Two strikes, you're out!
