“Ambiance plus”
Reviewed August 21, 2013

I've eaten at Porters on two occasions both in the main restaurant and last night in the bar. Tasty food, wide selection of beer and wine, and a friendly staff. You may need to make reservations in the main restaurant. I've taken clients here and it offers privacy if you need to discuss business. One of my favorites when I visit Medford.

“Great steakhouse”
Reviewed August 7, 2013

Set in an old railway station and themed accordingly. I ate in a booth like a compartment in a railway carriage. Great homemade crab and shrimp cakes followed by a perfectly cooked steak. Good selection of quality wine including from local Oregon vineyards, many available by the glass. Large outside eating area and friendly efficient service.. Recommended

“Best patio dining in Medford----”
Reviewed July 24, 2013

--go before 6:00, sit on the outdoor bar patio, enjoy a great local craft beer, & "get giddy for two fiddy" with all the wonder full appetizer/dinner selections for around $3 each. Wonderful burger, sweet potato fries, shrimp cocktail, etc, etc on the special "get giddy--" menu from 4:30 - 6:00. Don't miss this. Regular dinner menu is on the pricier side, but they have this and the train fare menu that are very reasonable. Great wine & beer list, and the owner, Brian Porter is always fun & friendly to talk to.

“Very good, again.”
Reviewed June 26, 2013

We are a group of eight couples that travel to Southern Oregon on a golf trip every year. This the second year we have gone to Porter's for dinner. We were in a separate room which made it nice not only for us but also other patrons. Sixteen people can be a little noisy. We are all seniors and not that easily pleased. Our waitress was excellent. She went over the menu, took our drink orders, and was charming all the time. Did I mention we are seniors and not always easy to please. Food and service was excellent. Everyone was happy with their choice of entree which probably represented 2/3 of the menu. Inn10 years this may have been a first! Service and food outstanding. We immediately agreed that Porter's was on next year's list again.
