My husband and I frequent this place and I love it. Can get crowded but the service and food are just the best value in the area.

I haven't had a bad meal in all of my many visits. You can get a variety of meals from burgers to salads to gourmet dinners. Great bar and a large variety of wines by the glass. If you go on the weekends, make sure to make reservations.You will be glad you visited this restaurant.

Me and my husband came here for a family dinner, and the service and food here hit a low note. It was just after the dinner rush so the restaurant was about half full. It took the server 13 minutes to deliver 6 waters and a coffee. I had ordered pasta with cream sauce and the sauce was extremely watery... More

My wife and I have eaten at Porter Creek at least 20 times in the past 3 years. We have never had a bad experience. On one occasion, we had dinner with our son and his wife and we were seated next to a group of about 15 people. The group was loud, no disrespect to them considering the size... More

This place has a wonderful atmosphere. The servers know the menu like no other place I have been. They can even tell you what types of flavors to expect with the dish. Their food is on the fine dining side. Expect pairings of food you aren't used to. This restaurant highlights their wood fire, slow cooked chicken. As they should,... More

We had dinner here before attending a show at Ames Theater on New Years Eve. The service was some of the best we have ever experienced. It was extremely busy, but we never felt rushed. The waitress did such such a great job at explaining everything on the menu. The food was excellent! Everyone that we encountered were so appreciative... More

Our waiter was the Ultimate! Never rushing us, never hovering, but there just about when you had a question or request. This is either excellent training or gifted insight or both. He arrived with water, welcome, and suggested specials. Returned with wine, no rush - let us consider our options and continue conversation. At the exactly right time, he returned... More
