My wife and I recently went her with some friends. Let me just say first that the server was incredible and helped us navigate the menu as this was the first time we had been here.

Our first visit was fabulous! And to think we'd never been there before last night and we live just 10 minutes away! We had drinks and appetizers---the calamari was delicious. Then my hubby had a burger for dinner and said it was the best he'd had in a very long time. I had a wonderful pasta dish with roasted chicken... More

Porter Creek has wonderful outdoor seating options. The indoors is also warm and welcoming. The food selection is quite good. I asked to have my entrée made without a tarragon and it seemed as if there was 2x the tarragon included. I did not send it back due to the fact that it took quite a while to come out... More

Sat at the outside bar, enjoyed cold beer and a couple entrees. Wish they had more options that they could make vegan. We always only order the same 2 choices, which is getting a little boring. Good food but more options would be great.

THis is the perfect place to go when you want a nice meal with friends. It is upscale without being stuffy. The food is reliable and creative. We loved eating on the patio last weekend, celebrating a college graduation with family. We were a largish group and our table was perfect. THe waitstaff was very attentive-- we never waited long...

Porter Creek has always been a safe bet for a nice place to get lunch, dinner and drinks. They have a fabulous outdoor patio. The food is always creative and fresh. I crave the southwest salad!!

This is a beautiful restaurant on the inside and my friends seem to like it, but I think the food is ordinary at best, and their drinks are nothing special. I really wish I were a bigger fan of the food, because the restaurant provides such a nice atmosphere.
