Turn on the lights, please!

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... read more

Don't be put off by the higher prices, because the quality of food demands them, but for whatever reason, suburbanites tend to complain about them. This is a steak and seafood joint and they consistently do both quite well. I believe they get their seafood from Coastal Seafoods and that is my go-to for the freshest in the Twin Cities,... More

Whether it be a family celebration or just a date night, you can't go wrong. Sooooo yummy. A must have is the warm-bacon-vinigarette salad . . . with whatever you choose! It's amazing! Enjoy!

We have eaten at Porterhouse several times. Tonight we had their Valentine dinner special. It was a surf and turf dinner for two. Wonderful because both the steaks and seafood are fantastic. We were served a shrimp cocktail appetizer, 7 oz filet mignon and 7oz lobster tail, soup or salad, one side, creme brulee (champagne if wanted) for $114 plus... More

Born in NY, I take pride in my NY Strip steaks. Just kidding, not even sure why it's named that. But it's good. Really good. Medium-rare goodness. Mashed potato goodness. Spinach salad goodness. Wine goodness. Even bread goodness. Reasonably priced too given some of the other options in the area -

This was our first visit to this restaurant after hearing many good things about it. We made reservations through OpenTable and they gave a nice long table booth along the wall for 4+ people thought it was just the two of us. Great service! I was surprised at the open area in the middle which seemed tightly crammed with rectangular... More

Tried to make reservations in advance but they were booked. So decided to try just stopping in and was told wait would be 1 hour to 1.5 hours, at 6 PM on a Saturday night. Normally I wouldn't wait that long, but we decided to have a drink and wait it out. Sadly it was a 2 hour wait and... More
