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.

We arrived for dinner and were thrilled to hear they had half off bottles of wine!! We ordered some bacon and mustard flatbread with caramelized onions as an appetizer. It sounded weird, but was very fresh and delicious. My wife ordered the Seafood Kettle...wonderful! I had a Prime Rib Sandwich with Smoked Gouda....again very good. The Creme Brulee for dessert...

We were looking for someplace new for dinner and stumbled on Porter Creek. We had about a 30 minute wait but found a seat at the bar, we enjoyed a flight of wine while we waited. My walleye was excellent but was missing the light butter/lemon sauce, Bob chose a steak and said it was also excellent. The only issue... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our meal and our service. This was our first visit here, and all of the food we tried was delicious. Our server was very knowledgeable about the menu and provided good explanations and insight to the menu. We were there on a busy Friday evening, our reservations were placed online and we were seated within minutes. Our... More

My wife and I choose to go to Porter Creek nearly every time we have a date night to ourselves. The facility and atmosphere are very nice, the staff helpful and friendly, menu diverse, and the food delicious. Our last time in my wife had the quinoa salad and thought it was the best salad she has ever had, and... More

The facility is beautiful, the waitstaff wonderful, the menu diverse and a little on the higher side for lunch. Two in our party of six ordered a full sized sandwich and were not disappointed. The other four ordered a lunch combo and the portions were small for only a dollar less than the full sized sandwich prices. The two that... More

I live in Burnsville and visit this place often. Great atmosphere and food. Great desserts and wine list too. Not a chain and worth the visit when in Burnsville.
