Porter Creek has something for everyone. Their bar area is warm and inviting, with friendly bartenders and servers and they have a lovely wine list. I love going there for a drink and appetizer, as well as for a fine meal. Our neighborhood has it's annual holiday dinner there, which is always beautiful and elegant. Love Porter Creek!

The Tommy Bahama Mojito on the patio in the summer is a must do. I have never been impressed with their food or the feel/ambiance of their indoor dining or bar.

Service is exceptional and the food is wonderful. I love the flat-bread choices. The Sausage and Peach Chutney is amazing! Great for girls night out or a business meeting. Warm, Cozy and very inviting. Maybe too upscale for families with small children.

We waited an hour for a table, but we're prepared for that, so we were not upset. Jeff was our server and he was attentive and helpful. The food was remarkable, and for such a busy night, 5 stars for staying on point. The brussel sprouts were so good, I asked for an additional side of them. We will be... More

This has to be one of the best places for fine food at fairly reasonable prices. The servers all seem to know the menu and are always accurate and quick with recommendations. There is nothing wrong with this place.

I've been to Porter Creek a few times and they always deliver awesome food. It is very popular, so I recommend a reservation if you don't want a longer wait. The Tenderloin is unbelievable. You can order it with horseradish or blue cheese encrusted on it....or both!!! The atmosphere is very nice and the pace of the meal is just... More

Great salads, especially the bacon peach with ranch dressing. They have some nice combos for lunch, you can have half sandwich, salad, small flatbread etc. We dined for lunch on December 24th, they were not real busy, I would guess do to the holiday, but our waitress was scarce at all times, which did not make for a memorable experience.
