Chicken - recommended

The chicken wings appetizer with the unique untraditional buffalo sauce is worth trying. The half chicken is good also but the BBQ sauces are more sweet than spicy. If they could do the half chicken with their buffalo sauce it would be amazing. The chicken is smoked and moist. The restaurant has a... read more

We love heading to Porter Creek to sit on their beautiful patio on a warm spring evening. Their happy hour menu has great selections and the wine list is great!

Porter Creek is a very busy place on a Friday evening. Reservations are a necessity. We waited at the bar for a relatively short period before our table was available. The server was very attentive and knowledgeable with a pleasant customer service manner. The drink service was OK but the martini's were only average, i.e. not dry enough and the... More

We have been to Porter Creek Hardwood Grill a number of times and each has been a very satisfying experience. The menu is full of interesting choices. Wait staff is very knowledgable and friendly. You will find it populated by couples, families and larger parties.

If you go here you must try the chicken wings. The rotisserie chicken is fantastic. Some of the best chicken I have had. The service was a little slow but we were with a large group. I would go back again for sure.

The "Grilled" Peaches Are Not Grilled. They Are Canned Peaches. The Chocolate Pudding Cake Is Filled With Lumps Which The Waiter Described As Bread Pudding. The Desserts Are Very Small & Very Expensive.

Wow! Anything anyone would love about a restaurant is at Porter Creek Hardwood Grill. Impeccable, friendly service, amazing food, elegant yet comfortable atmosphere inside with stunning patios outside. We had the bleu cheese crusted beef tenderloin and the award winning salmon. Both were excellent with amazing plate presentation also. Salad, bread basket, sides, imaginative cocktails, wine, beer and liquor flights,... More

Very Good steak service was good and prompt. Was a little pricey and we didn't feel rushed. Nice place to go for a special occasion.. Nice dessert menu. Convenient location right off the frontage road of 35ω in Lakeville
