Heavenly low light- soft charming welcoming atmosphere! Knowledgeable gracious attentive staff and delectable superb high quality food, not to mention the colorful plating. Best steak in Hot Springs! Easily a favorite 👌🏼 The owner, Chef Joe Gargano was on hand and always available to patrons with his warm hospitality and smile.

Very good service! Lousy wedge salad with no wedge but just some crappy torn up iceberg lettuce. Baked potato was good. Veggies were average. Steaks were average. My Porterhouse had no flavor and the strip portion was tough. Was cooked medium rare correctly. My wife's New York Strip tasted better and had some flavor. Tab for two without alcohol with... More

Ordered the filet which came with vegetables and a potato. The filet was great but the vegetables were very bland. This is a very old building so the atmosphere was less than desirable for the price.

The atmosphere of Porterhouse was nice and made for a good first impression. Even though the restaurant was almost full when we ate there, it was pleasantly quiet. Our waiter couldn't have cared less about taking care of us, and the seating hostess was equally indifferent. Our meals (lobster tail for me, surf/turf for my partner) were prepared alright, but...

Very intimate and romantic place. It's located right down from the Arlington Hotel within walking distance. We had an early dinner, around 5. Service was excellent and the steaks were fantastic.

I have eaten in the Porterhouse three times now and each time it has been better than the last! Their steaks are juicey and flavorful and the atomosphere is romantic!

We decided to take in Gallery Walk and could smell the steak across the street. What a treat. The service was beyond excellent. Atmosphere is pleasant.

The food was ok. I got a ribeye and my wife got a filet. We both ordered medium rare and both steaks were cooked correctly. But the flavor was mediocre and the ribeye was very thin and almost cold upon arrival. The filet was by far better. The baked potato was fine, but the pre-measured amount of condiments were not...

It was our first time visiting the Porterhouse. We had a group of 30 people. Food was terrific and service was impeccable! Appetizers, food, and drinks- and were in and out in an hour and 15 minutes- with majority eating steaks. Shout out to Ashley for her friendly, perfectly timed service!!!!! Will be back!!!

We visited the steakhouse due to a friend suggesting it. The only reason I gave it two stars was because the service was good and the server was very nice and professional. The food on the other had was terrible. Our family had all filets that had very bad texture. The steaks for my wife and I were both very... More
