“Great, Friendly Spot”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 9, 2013 via mobile

Was in town with a group of 8. We ate her on 2 different nights and had great meals both nights. The first night we started with the fried crab claws. Let me say these are incredible! You dont wanna miss these. For my entree I had the fish & chips. Very good. Large portion of fish and a nice crust. The second night I felt like something different and went with the chicken curry. It was awesome! If you want a casual dinner with great ambiance and friendly staff, this is your spot.

“excellence all round.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2013

I have eaten in this restaurant on numerous occasions and find it hugely accommodating! I have tasted various meals and all have been outstanding ! I had crab claws as a starter once and enjoyed them so much , when i told my waitress this she asked the chefs to do a main meal portion , she was polite kind and friendly , service was immense ! Everything about this place is homely and relaxed , and is always the same no matter how busy . BRAVOOOOO

“Superb meal and service.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 2, 2013

Being a Local in Killarney we can avail of many restaurants, however I find myself returning to the Porterhouse time and time again. Both food and service are consistent, friendly and clean. I'm a fan of the crab claws, and the chicken fajitas myself. The portions are more than generous. They pay attention to the small things such as having scented candles in the bathrooms. I feel in restaurants if the bathrooms clean the kitchen is too. Lovely Family business
