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

Chose Porter House for the repast for my son. Perfect choice. Steven was incredibly wonderful to us. 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.

I travel on business almost weekly and had previously dined at Porter House with a most positive experience. I went back this week to have an even better experience. I was quickly seated at the table of my choice and given their dinner menu that offers something for everyone. The atmosphere is quaint, quiet and clean with tablecloths and tables... More

Many years ago it became our family tradition to have Thanksgiving dinner at a local restaurant. Our daughter recently moved to Lynchburg, so that was our destination of choice. The great part of the dinner was sharing it with our daughter and her fiance. The lesser part of dinner was the meal. It was lacking in presentation, taste, and service.... More

Pork Medallions in a slightly too sweet sauce, paired with Broccoli adorned in bready crumbles. Unexceptional, but competently executed. Why the three star rating? The facility itself is starting to look a little dated, and can probably do with a bit of sprucing up. Check it out if you would like a quiet evening out.
