“Does the Sheraton Proud”
Reviewed March 13, 2013

Located in the Sheraton, the steakhouse does much more than red meat. It's a bit pricey, but it's worth it. A cast of characters and regulars call it home and give it a great atmosphere. Worth a meal here.

“Well worth the money!”
Reviewed February 23, 2013 via mobile

Porter's was my best lifetime dinning experience, the food, the atmosphere, and the staff were all above average. Adam our waiter was awesome, very attentive without being intrusive, he watched every detail and ensured our drinks were never empty and unused plate and utensils were removed in a timely manner so my wife and I had plenty of room to be comfortable. Adam also found time to share some local information about Chattanooga and some hotel history which made for some interesting conversations. The staff here was so amazing that after my wife and I took our evening stroll we went back to Porter's for a dessert and a night cap before turning in for the evening. Melanie, you and your staff were amazing and thanks for the memories!

“Lunch Service was horrible”
Reviewed January 21, 2013

We ate lunch on a Saturday afternoon. The food was horrible. We actually had to send back food due because the order wasn't correct and what we did order was horrible when we got it. We loved the Read House but will never visit Porter's again.

“Best steakhouse in the area”
Reviewed December 27, 2012

I like my steak, and when I travel somewhere I like to try what they call their premier steakhouses. Chicago, New York, Atlanta, etc etc, I've engendered some really bad cow karma over the years. Porter's caught me by surprise because it doesn't get the fanfare it deserves. I decided to eat there because I stayed in the hotel. What a glorious surprise! Huge, well aged steaks, done correctly; lovely iceberg lettuce wedges; solid wine list, especially for Chattanooga (no offense y'all but you know it's true); and top notch service.
