A very top-notch restaurant. While staying in the Athens area my lady and I were seeking a fine steak dinner. We decided upon here. This is definitely not the kind of place where they allow peanut shells thrown on the floor. This place has class. Professional wait staff that are extremely astute in wine knowledge as well as the rest... More

We try to go to downtown restaurants when the college is not in session to avoid the crowds. Porterhouse is having an anniversary celebration this month with some reduced prices. The waiter was a little confused as to the details but got clarification. The drinks were good, the filet mignonette excellent and the service done well. We return this week... More

we chose a high table by the window. The basil martini and gin and tonic drinks were both very good. My salad, wrapped in prosciutto, with peppers and dressed in balsamic was THE BEST, I'll be copying at home. I don't eat dairy or wheat, and they were not just accommodating, but helpful. We enjoyed our steaks with a Heitz... More

People friendly and good food for price at lunch, but slow service spoiled the visit. We saw people get served, eat, pay and leave while we were still waiting for our food. We were told when we finally got our order that, unlucky for us, we were behind a large party. Really? The restaurant was maybe half full. Hope they... More

We were at Porterhouse Grille on Friday, May 15 to celebrate our son's graduation at UGA. Everyone ordered steaks and each one was cooked to perfection! Our son also ordered sautéed mushrooms and he said they were awesome. We will definitely return for n our next trip to Athens!

ThIs was fun place for some really good steak and drinks. We went there for a celebration and we really had fun. The food was nice prepared and the prices were reasonable. This is a college town area but this restaurant stands out and if you go there you will have a good time. The staff is young and enthusiastic.... More

The service was spotty, there seemed to be a lack of communication between the members of the wait staff. The entrees came out while were still eating the appetizers. One person in our party ordered fish and is was barely cooked. We asked that it be returned and replaced. They clearly just took the same piece of fish and put... More

attended a graduation at the University of Georgia and wanted to take the family out for a celebration. A friend suggested The Porterhouse Grill for an upscale meal so that's where we made our reservation. We were seven people and each and every steak was cooked to perfection! Even with the restaurant being slammed with people in town for the... More

Porterhouse is not Athens' crown jewel. The seafood tortellini is to die for as are the desserts, but as a pescatarian, I am always disappointed by the fish dishes. The Sunday brunch gives you an incredible sampler of all types of brunch dishes for a great price.

Wonderful staff, great drinks, awesome food! We had the bone in ribeye and the filet with goat cheese. I got the french martini. Our waitress was Morgan. She knows her menu, lots of help. Great Anniversary dinner.
