In Lynchburg for a weekend getaway with my wife and we were looking for a nice place for a romantic dinner. The Porter House did not disappoint. Casual, but classy. The food was very good and the wait staff were friendly, helpful and efficient. Great value for good food and service! Steak dinner was good. The port wine parfait was... More

My wife and I had a late lunch today, and as always had a very fine meal. Prime Rib, Sea Bass and Lamb Chops are among our favorites. Bartender/Waitress Mary Jane, did an outstanding job! We put Co-owner/Chef Rhienhart is one of the best chefs in the US and other Co-owner Sachico always makes your dining experience pleasurable.

Awesome! Never had a bad meal! I go there ever chance I get. It is very special to me. The staff is very friendly and prompt. The chefs are awesome. They go out of their way to please you. If they have the ingredients they will make you anything you want. Thank you Porterhouse (aka SACHIKOS) Sammy

Wow, what a weird and terrible experience. My wife and I were in town for one night and looking for a nice dinner. This was not it. First of all you can barely find the place because there are no lights on the sign. When we walked in we were immediately hit with the feeling that we were in a... More

The Porter house is by far one of the best restaurants in the Lynchburg area. The food and serice are excellent. Sachiko, the co owner, always makes you feel special. Meals begin with a delicious salad with a delightful house dressing. Entrees are always well prepared. Rhinehart knows how to prepare veal which in this area is unusual. German specialties... More

This is my wife and my favorite restaurant in Lynchburg. We were there on 1/18/13 and as always found the service and food to be excellent. The chef (Rhinehart), co-owner we put his quality of food up against any restaurant. The other co-owner (Sachiko) always makes our visit enjoyable. Mary Jane the head bartender also provides good service to us... More

Porterhouse (Sachiko's) has been in Lynchburg since the 70s and the same couple still own/operate it. Very good food w/plentiful portions at reasonable prices. Menu prices include a house salad with a "special" dressing, entree item, starch and vegetable (which changes daily). Crackers and cheese spread brought to the table for pre-meal "munching". Delicous desserts, especially the napolian (sp?) and... More

In the past we were always very pleased with our dinners at the Porter House restaurant but this time both the service and food were way below par. In order to be seated quickly we agreed to have dinner in the lounge which was a big mistake as we were neglected by the male servers and had to ask several... More

My family and I attended the buffet for Thanksgiving and couldn't have been more pleased. A wonderful assortment and variety of salads and food and desserts. Their buffet consisted of turkey and dressing, baked chicken, carved beef, roast pork, stuffed fish and baked fish, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, brocolli, succotash, and an assortment of desserts. Between my family and I,... More

This is supposed to be one of the better restaurants in the city of a lively restaurant scene, but on this Thanksgiving, it was hardly that. We went for a rather pricey, special Thanksgiving meal. It was barely edible. Chicken, pork and turkey swimming in fat and fluids. Beef like shoe leather. Fish nauseatingly undercooked. Desserts mass produced and tasteless.... More
