Tried again but failed

This place needs a complete overhaul. Not many like to eat on benches in a dark room with 1800s piano music playing while eating on plastic bowls and plates. The salad bar was incredibly small and lacked variety. I ordered the halibut which was a frozen preformed lump of dry something (28... read more

Oh how I wish I could write a positive review of this place. My late father used to love this place and as a child it was always busy and bustling. But now it's sad and according to my kids - creepy. What's even worse than the weathered ambiance is the lackluster service and terribly overpriced and underwhelming food. I've... More

We've been to Porter's quite a few times. Steaks are very good as are the burgers and sandwiches. The ambiance puts you back into the old west. Kids love the specialty drinks.

The food is really good. I've enjoyed it every time I've gone. But if I'm being 100% honest, I go for the atmosphere. To understand the atmosphere you're going in for, you need to understand where the name of this place comes from. Porter Rockwell was a rough and tumble guy from the pioneer era. He was the self appointed... More

Porter's family owns and operates the restaurant. If you want an authentic buffalo steak or other grown int the wild selections, go to Porter's Place.

My husband and I and a couple of friends went to dinner over the weekend at Porter's Place in Lehi, Utah. We had dined there before and thought we knew what we were in for. Diner beware. If you order a steak, for the most part you'll find ok success. Don't go for the Chicken Fried Steak, however..... over cooked... More

I love going here. The food is excellent and the atmosphere is something you will not get anywhere else. It is definitely an experience going to Porter's Place. The salad bar honestly doesn't look like much, but is oddly one of the best I have ever had. We go as often as we can.

Had been meaning to go to Porters Place for some time, so suggested whe another couple asked where we could go that's different. The service was slow. The famed steak -- different cuts for each one of us -- was generally disappointing. The salad bar was less than appetizing-looking (although it tasted better than it looked). I would not go...

After traveling out to a nearby state park it was a fun place to stop and eat. there is plenty to look at while you wait for your meal. The old bar and antiques make it seem like you are back in time...Our steak and rolls were over the top... baked beans have a unique smokey flavor. Can't wait to... More

I went with a friend at his suggestion. The service was excellent as was the food. I'll definitely be going back.
