If you're looking for a nice dining experience in Burnsville, try the Porter Creek Hardwood grill. With a mix of indoor, outdoor open air, or outdoor covered dining, they have it all. The food, a mix of meat, seafood and vegatarian is very good! Service is very good as well. A good selection of local beers and wines also. You... More

The bone in pork chop was juicy and tender. It came with a scoop of mango chutney which added a sweet kick. The white bean and ham hock soup was delicious and very hearty. Along side JD Hoyt's, this chop is comparable. The service is friendly and the patio is spacious.

I Was at Porter Creek Grill for the first time on 8-12-14. To start with right as I was getting ready to sit down I was dowsed with a glass of water that the waiter dropped. Not only on me but inside my purse and all over my phone. There was glass and ice cubes in the bottom of my... More

Went with coworkers for a farewell party. Menu was excellent, had options for everyone with a price point for anyone ($10 to $30). Nice atmosphere, nice outdoor seating area. Wait staff was very good considering the large party he had to take care of, but at the end it did take about 20 minutes for him to bring me an... More

We were a party of four. The hostess seated us within minutes. We had ice water almost immediately, and the waiter took drink orders before we could even start looking at the menu. The food was fabulous. It arrived in a timely fashion, and exactly as ordered. The ambience was very nice for 4 60ish people. We'll definitely return.

I wish Porter Creek was in my neighborhood, but any time I have a chance to meet friends in Burnsville, we go there. The food is very tasty, delicious, flavorful, great combinations, and good portions. The menu is nicely varied. Every time I try something new, and I have never been disappointed. The price point on everything is reasonable. Great... More

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. I had there "award winning" Salmon dish and it was amazing. The manager came out when he heard it was our first time there... More

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.
