I've been to Porterhouse a few times. The service is great, the food is awesome, and the drinks are really good. The only thing you could find fault with is how long it can take to get a table. I just call that a testament to how great this place is.

The food is very good, always consistent. My favorite for lunch is the Brisket Sandwich..mmm good ! Favorite dinner, their 8 ounce Top Sirloin covered in optional mushrooms. Favorite drink, their Aisian Pear Martini....its simply amazing. A lot of great ever changing drink specials. Uber comfortable banqet style booths in the bar. Great outdoor patio space.

Staff here is friendly and the atmosphere is nice. Love the fireplace as the chill of fall sets in. They have great salads, steaks,and varied choices of drinks. A little off the beaten path but worth looking for it.

We've been there 3 times but I'm a little reluctant to pay $20 for an 8oz steak. Their Porterhouse Dip is excellent for $10

This place was suggested by our Hotel Manager. Was he ever right when he said they make a great steak! The atmosphere was very inviting. The place is quiet and the chairs are the most comfortable ones I've ever sat in at a restaurant. The waitresses kept our water glasses full without having to ask. The meals came out piping... More

Friday nights my family and I go out for dinner. Tired of the same old thing I opted this night for the pricier Porterhouse. As we tend to eat early we were quickly sat (note: they were on a four to five party wait as we left). Our server, Briar, met us with a smile and took our drink orders.... More

If this is the best restaurant in Moses Lake, as we were informed, then the other restaurants in town must be well below average. We had a decent experience at the Porterhouse but truly nothing special. We had sandwich platters that were around $12 each. Portion size was good but again, the food was nothing special. The steak dinners served... More

I've been here three times and love it every time. Had a rib-eye steak; $24.95 all inclusive. Caesar's salad, green beans, endless bread, mashed potatoes with gravy. Had incredible cheesecake for dessert. Bloody Mary's were great, steak was out of this world. The manager came by to check on us. They have a Cheers like bar that I am surprised... More

We used to go here all the time ten years ago. It now has new owners. My children liked their meals except my daughter's potatoes salad was missing seasoning and maybe vinegar? Something essential was missing. My patty melt was dominated by a very strong cheddar, out flavoring the onions. The sandwich tasted more like a grilled cheese because the... More
