“Never fails to please”

Delightful food, wonderful service, comfortable atmosphere, nice wine list, great beers on tap, varied price range. What more could you ask for? Certainly a favorite of ours. We are never disappointed!

“It's like their magnet says: the Porch rocks!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2010

We lived in lovely Rochester for a year and fell in love with the Porch after our first meal there. We've eaten most of the dishes and various original and tasty specials- all of it is really good. Ambiance is just right, with a neighborhood restaurant feel, good lighting, a neat bar area, and outdoor seating on the porch during the warmer months. When we come back to visit, we always make a reservation here. Most recently, the stuffed trout was perfectly baked so the skin crisped on the edges and the sweet little shrimp and crabmeat stuffing was flavorful but not too creamy/rich or salty (I've been to a few restaurants recently where the food is too salty- which i don't like at all). I'm no drink connoisseur but they have inventive and delicious cocktails too. Oh, and did I mention the chocolate creme brule- loved it!
