“Just okay.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 29, 2012

After hearing friends rave about this place I thought I'd give it a try. We went for lunch, so I can't say what their dinner is like. Very nice ambience, friendly and attentive wait staff, but food rather disappointing. I found it over-priced for what it was. None of us was overly impressed with the food and for that kind of money won't be back.

“Excellent food & excellent service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 25, 2012

We ate at Porter's while staying at the Read House Hotel, where the restaurant is located. We were greeted and seated at a table quickly. Our server was very friendly but not obtrusively helpful. He even mentioned that a table of 10 businessmen would be seated next to us soon, in case we wanted to be moved to a corner where it may be more quiet. My husband and I both had the french onion soup, which was great. I had filet mignon and my husband had filet oscar with the peppercorn seasoning. Both were excellent. We split potatoes au gratin as our side and were not disappointed.

“Weekend:Breakfast Buffet reasonable price, good food.”

They have a wide selection of proteins, meats, grains, cereal, fruits, and pastries. They were all fresh even though the buffet was getting ready to close.

“Great lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 22, 2012 via mobile

Great lunch meeting place. Food was very good but service was only ok. Wasn't that busy and server didn't bring all requested so had to make several trips. In evenings, bar is nice and location makes easy for quick get together before dinner. Try the beef tip salad.
