Wonderful setting and great food!

On business in the twin cities area and found this gem close to my hotel in Burnsville. Reminds me of a small chain in the SE called Seasons 52. Great setting for outdoor dining and a wonderful outside bar. Surrounded by flowers and there is also a fire pit for those colder evenings. The food is... read more

Stopped in for lunch one day. Thought we might have to wait for a table because the parking lot was full. However, this place is spacious enough that we didn't have to wait for a table. In addition to the server being extremely polite and friendly, this place had a lot of small things going for it that we liked.... More

We stopped in for drinks and appetizers and were very pleased. Outside seating is very nice and the service was efficient. The best part was the quality of the small dishes we had with our drinks, particularly the ribs.

Went for lunch and sat on the patio. Excellent food, amazing service (thanks Pam!) and great patio seating. Will go again and again whenever I am in town!

I've been going to Porter Creek for a while, mainly for dinner or happy hour. Their food is second to no restaurant in the area. The outdoor seating is just awesome.

The food selection is great; the presentation is equally good. Sometimes, I have felt that the service lags well behind the quality - of the foods.

I had been to Porter creek a few years ago and decided to try it again. They had some nice new items on the menu and we enjoyed the experience. The service ranged from almost overattentive to looking for someone to fill a water glass but overall it was acceptable. One thing their menu isn't reflected on their website accurately.... More

We love this place! The service was amazing from the first step to the hostess stand. The patio area is beautiful. It was a bit chilly on the patio so they offered our daughter a blanket. The food is creative and excellent. Happy hour is from 9 pm - midnight. They offer 1/2 price apps and flatbreads during this time.

We were referred here by other parents from our son's college listserve. It was quite a ways out of our way (20 miles one way) but actually it turned out to be worth the effort. The food was a serious step up from our expectations, the staff were very friendly and the setting was bustling but comfortable. Despite the location... More
