We had such a great time at Porter's. Every night is a little special memory, whether you want a private meal for two, a little socializing with other guests and island residents, or an all out party. It's there for the choosing. Porter and Haidee are great hosts. I have to have Haidee's granola recipe. Lolli's meals are absolutely fabulous....and... More

Haidee mentioned that her granddaughter once thought this restaurant was just the dining room of their house, and that friends just came to visit. That's about right. Lively conversation with everyone, very good food, very good drinks - great atmosphere. Being really the only game in town (except for Debbie and Coral Reef) makes it even more impressive that they... More

We had two truly wonderful dinners at this gem of a restaurant - and just a great overall experience. From the moment you walk in and are warmly greeted by Porter and Haidee and introduced to local residents sitting at the bar or one of the cozy nearby tables, you realize you've arrived at a very special place.
