“Nice Evening”
Reviewed April 12, 2014

Porter's is a fine resturant to chill out and have a great steak and some fun. Great Food always costs a bit more but it worth it for the Food and Atmosphere. Track it down, you'll love it!

“Top Shelf in Everyway!”
Reviewed April 9, 2014 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Super location; excellent selection of quality menu items; great service (even without reservations); and, classic atmosphere. When we visit our relatives again this will be one of our "go to" places.

“Wonderful, Unique Dining Experience!”
Reviewed March 28, 2014

Porters always proves to be a wonderful choice for eating in Medford's booming downtown district. They have great, fresh, and even many local food options, and the menu is pretty wide and varies from inexpensive to quite high, but the food quality proves worthy of the pricetag for the higher end entrees. The restaurant is gorgeous, with historically accurate décor and an absolutely fantastic bar (which is made from the original ticket booth from 1910). The outdoor eating area is lit up at night and makes for a romantic experience. The thing that really took the cake was the curtained booths... There are three booths in the main dining room that are enclosed and can be made completely private by closing the curtains. It's very intimate, unique, and a whole lot of fun. Porters is a -must visit- restaurant.

“Train Depot Dinner”
Reviewed March 24, 2014

The staff was amazing; friendly, knowledgeable and had a quality of customer service not found in many restaurants. Accommodating to requests. A well varied menu for omnivores and vegetarians. The decor was in tune with the era/ train depot style. Outdoor seating with plants. Nice bar. I plan to return on my next visit.

“Good not great.”
Reviewed March 11, 2014

This is one of Medfords fancier restaurants and it has a reputation for that. I've been here a few times over the years and its always a decent experience but I find it to be a little over priced and lacking in something. I have never had a bad dish here but I'd like to see more varity and maybe some additional fresh fish items. Other than that I can't complain, service is always great and the deserts are very very good.
