Recently moved to Lynchburg and decided to give Porter House a try. We were very impressed. The food was amazing (I personally had the ribeye with the mashed potatoes). Our table had quite a variety of food (burger, seafood, pork) and everyone was impressed! The service was phenomenal as well. Our waiter was Ken and he was there to take... More

Had dinner at the Porter House this week, and walked away with a severe stomach ache. In fact, as the night wore on, several of the guests were experiencing the same symptoms! We all had different entrees, fish tacos, reuben sandwich and hamburger. Such a disappointment since our server was good! Will NOT return!

Overall a good meal and pleasant experience. The steak was tasty and all the food good. The service could have been better.

This restaurant was recently opened under new ownership, and did not disappoint! There are so many menu options that will please most everyone. My friend got the steak au poivre (?? spelling) which I tasted and was delicious. I got an arugula pesto pasta with grilled salmon- really great! So, enjoyed our meal and hope to return to try something... More

Helped us select a menu, was flexible on the number of people (as I was not sure), and was accommodating with the food and drinks. The food was superb. Most of it, even the rolls, were homemade and just the right amount. He... More

Went with a large party the other evening. Everyone was happy with their order. They quality of the food was excellent, and the portions were generous for the prices. Standouts included the short rib pasta, the lamb cassoulet and Thai style mussels appetizer.

Food is great but, service is lacking. Maybe it was a bad night for our waiter because he could not remember some of our request for service.

Dinner was delicious. Waitstaff were excellent, friendly and helpful. I had the best steak ever... wasn't too hungry. The 4 oz filet was perfect. Mixed drinks were so good.

then do not come here. I ordered their rib eye special steak meduim rare. it came cooked through which is understandable given that the steak was 1/2 inch thick at the most. It was supposed to be 10oz, but i doubt that at only about 6X4. Spend your money somewhere else.

Had dinner with friends at Porterhouse Restaurant last evening. This was the first time back since the restaurant changed the name. Service Staff was attentive without being obnoxious and food was perfectly prepared and very tasty.
