What a fantastic place to go for a great steak dinner. Come hungry! There is nothing better than a juicy porterhouse steak and a full body glass of red wine. Well except for a fantastic dessert to finish. This is what you're looking for get yourself here fast! The service is excellent articulate and timely. The prices reflect all of... More

We joined friends for a meal at Porterhouse and found place packed - not a table or parking space to spare. It's a good idea to have reservations if you plan to dine in prime time or you'll find a wait. If you have read any of my previous reviews - as the price goes up, so do my expectations.... More

First time to this restaurant, and we wanted to go someplace nice for our anniversary. We believe Porterhouse is now one of, if not the, favorite restaurant for us. We had lobster tails, and filet mignon and both were superb. The pace of the serving were just right, not too fast as at some of the other places we've gone... More

We had the filet mignon and fish entrees. The fish was not very good. The steak was good, but nothing special. The mashed potatoes were okay, but no different than what you get from any chain restaurant. The other choices were a big chunk of broccoli or a baked potato - not very unique. We also had the crab cake... More

The Porterhouse in Lakeville is one of our favorite restaurants for steak in the Twin Cities. I had a nine ounce filet mignon with a baked potato, garden salad and wonderful bread. The steak was scrumptious! Tender juicy and full of flavor. I also like this restaurant because you get everything I had for one reasonable price. We were celebrating... More

This was a good find. It is a place we will return to the next time we travel to Minnesota. The food was excellent, and the service was very attentive.

I've lived in several states and eaten at many 5 star restaurants. I lived in Minnesota for about 5 years, in those 5 years I couldn't find any restaurants I really liked except this one. It's not just the best steakhouse in Minnesota, but it's better than any I've been to in Washington, Texas, or California. It even beats the... More

I rated the ambiance low because its incredibly dark which made reading the glossy menu very difficult. Good thing my cell phone had a flashlight function. We started with the Crab cakes which were very good for Minnesota. The Caesar side salad was good and I was pleased I was offered anchovies. I ordered the "Black 'n Blue Ribeye which... More
