“A great place to eat!”
Reviewed June 26, 2012

We had eight couples on a golf trip to Medford. Our evening at Porter's was one of he best meals we have had in a number of years. Parmesan encrusted halibut, stealhead, fish and chips, etc. we're all excellent, and this is a tough group to please. Our waitress was outstanding and had no problem issuing. Separate chec is or each couple and they were right he first time. Great personality! Nice private room that made e evening special. A definite find in Medford.

Thank you all for being here. So happy you enjoyed our private dining room, the old Station Master's Office. Also, we are in the process of expanding our indoor balcony which will soon be available for large-party reservations. Come and see!

“"Happy Hour"”
Reviewed June 25, 2012

My wife and I spent a night in a nearby hotel where the front staff recommended Porters.

We arrived just before the last call for Happy Hour. We had some great appies and drinks at what we thought were quite reasonable prices.

It is a long time plan ahead, but try the place on the Saturday before Father's Day next year at about four in the afternoon. You'll experience the Medford equivalent of "Hot August Nights" in Reno. Lots of old cars that we all wanted to own at one time or another in our lives; especially if you came of age in the 60's or 70's. Great fun, great food, great drinks.

“Great atmosphere and food, but expensive”
Reviewed June 18, 2012

When we arrived, the restraurant was very busy but we were shown a table within 10 minutes. There was a great mix of people and it didn't matter whether you were wearing shorts and flip flops or your finest, everyone fitted in. We sat in a booth and were really impressed with the decor. Service was slow at times and there seemed to be a shortage of menus but we didn't mind as we weren't in a hurry. The waitress was very friendly and had a great rapport with the diners. The food was great (the vegetarian selection was excellent and the cheese ravioli was delicious) but it was expensive. However, I didn't feel like it was bad value for money.

Thanks for your comments, and so glad you were happy with our vegetarian options. On your next visit ask us about our new "Train Fare" menu. These are some lighter, a la carte entrees that are very reasonably priced. Hope to see you soon.

“Porters is Expensive”
Reviewed June 7, 2012

Located in an old Train Station. Looks nice. posh of Los Angels, good food. Bring your wallet. EXPENSIVE ! I live in Medford, and have been there twice in 25 years.

“Great outside patio!”
Reviewed June 3, 2012

Whether you are part of the bar crowd or the regular restaurant, you can ask for a table on their great patio. They have heaters and misters for extremes in weather- and beautiful wisteria growing on the fence.

We're glad you enjoyed our patio. Just a few weeks left of warm weather, so come visit again soon. Also, check out our new addition to the indoor balcony, coming soon.
