The restaurant is comfortable and well designed. It is clearly one of the better, and recent, quality dining places in Midtown. Service was good although not perfect; there was a long delay for our food to come with no apology or explanation. The local craft beers were good, always a good sign for those of us who love interesting beers,... More

We were in town for the day and wanted to find a special place to eat. We did! The service was attentive. Thank you Janelle! The food was delicious! We are originally from the South so finding authentic, delicious Southern fare so far from home can me difficult. The Porch did not disappoint! The portions are huge! We definitely over... More

The porch is easy to get to and there is parking in a private lot and a parking structure across the street. We had reservations and were sat immediately. We started with the skillet corn bread and it was terrific. I had the shrimp and grits, which were creamy and really good with lots of shrimp. My son had the... More

Pros: great location and service. The fried okra is some of the best I've ever had! The banana pudding is wonderful! Cons: the fried chicken is too overbreaded and much higher priced than what it should be. Overall, the prices here are very high.

The fired green tomatoes were fried in corn meal that left a bad after taste. The shrimp and grits were good. The garlic potatoes left a bad after taste as well. The biscuits were good. I would come back if the restaurant was my last resort.

Driving down from the Sierras on our 25th wedding anniversary. We wanted to eat somewhere special. I remembered a friend telling me about this special place in Sacramento called The Porch. Called and made reservations for later the same day. Arrived early and had a drink at the bar, a alcoholic version of a "sweet tea" it was delicious. Seated... More

I enjoyed brunch at the Porch and recently went back for dinner with family on a cold rainy evening. The food was amazing and so inviting on a cold evening. I got to sample from all the dishes we ordered, including the buttermilk fried chicken, the shrimp and grits, and the bourbon-bacon collards. I have to say the chicken and... More

There is something about the Porch that makes you realize that if you had access to this food every day, you would be a balloon. We were 4 for brunch on a weekend and everything was close to perfect. The close part is because the menu doesn't appear to change, so its possible to get used to some of the... More

Excellent food with excellent service. Will be back for sure. Went with a large party and was not disappointed. The only negative I can say is the parking.
