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.

My wife and I were given a gift certificate to dine at Porter Creek as a Christmas gift. We totally enjoyed the evening. We made reservations, but ended up arriving early. The staff took care of us no problem. The environment is very nice - the restaurant was very busy, but I didn't feel like we were crowded or rushed... More

Judi and I had another fantastic experience at Porter Creek on New Years Eve. Food was as spectacular as ever and despite a very busy evening, we were never made to feel rushed. Great food. Great people. And another great evening. Thanks!

The white lights in the dining area and the decor were beautiful. Very romantic. I am reviewing at 4 stars because it took way too long for the waiter to show up and take the drink order. Once he did, everything else was grwat. I had the capellini with shrimp. Yummy!

I tried Porter Creek when they first opened (2012). Not impressed. However, I've been there several times since, and their food has definitely improved! Their chicken is excellent, the ribs are so tender they fall off the bone, and they have some very interesting specials. I still think there are better options (including their other restaurant in Eagan - Doolittles),... More

Stopped in after shopping at Kohls - the facility is beautiful, multi-level, with outdoor areas and a sunroom area decorated in lights. The bar is a buzzing place, centrally located and elevated. The ceiling is a high arch with accent lights, dark wood everywhere. It's a very open floor plan - spacious yet seating areas seem private. Loads of chicken... More

You need to order chicken if you come here. Wine country salad is amazing as is the smoked peach and bacon salad.

There is a ton of fast food on Cty Rd 42, but this one of the very few places for a very nice meal. Great for business meetings and for dinner with the wife and family.
