Perfect Lazy Night

Raining and wanting something to do, we decided to have a late dinner at Porter Creek. We had such a nice dinner. The lighting and atmospher was dim and relaxed. My daughter wanted a burger and she said it made her feel fancy with how it came neatly with her fruit. I steered away from my normal... read more

We've been meaning to try out Porter Creek ever since it opened in Burnsville a few years back, but never seemed to make it for one reason or another. Finally decided to give it a shot as a late lunch/happy hour spot for my wife's birthday and we couldn't be more please that we did. The service was very good... More

Three friends met here and enjoyed everything about the lunch. Our server was very informative about options, was prompt in delivering dishes, and returned several times to the table. All of us selected the lunch combination of soup and flatbread. I tried the lamb sausage and feta flatbread which proved to be delicious. The other flatbreads were equally tasty. The... More

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 nice relaxing atmosphere and the staff are... 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.
