We were seated as soon as we walked in. Waiter was on top of it. Drink orders were brought out promptly, as well as appetizer and bread. By the way, crab cakes are to die for! Steak was among the most delicious steaks I've ever had. Even my seasonal vegetable was amazing. My husband and I have decided we need... More

When we came in Porter's, the bartender greeted us with - "Do you have reservations? If not, you'll have a wait." And wait we did- for 45 minutes. When we were finally seated, there were 8 empty tables and only 4 tables taken. We asked three times for bread, our water glasses were never refilled, and our bill was wrong.... More

During a recent business trip I opted to sit at the bar for a quick meal. To accompany my shrimp cocktail, two side items were ordered, a Baked Potato and julienned squash medley. Unfortunately both items came out luke warm at best and the julienned squash was prepared with an overwhelming amout of garlic. At this point had the restaurant... More

We had lived in Chattanooga several years ago and returned to run a race. Porter's excellent service and steaks hadn't changed. It was an outstanding evening for my wife and I.

We stayed in the Read house and ate here twice. Lunch and dinner. Both very good. At lunch they were very accommodating for me. With a limited menu - they made me one of their salads but substituted salmon for the meat (I don't eat red meat - I know - why am I at a steakhouse?!). I ate it... More

Very relaxing dinner. We had the steak au poivre. The peppercorn seasoning was perfect and the sauce was excellent. The Pom Frites, fancy for potato wedges, they were very good as well. The waitstaff were very friendly.

Stayed in the Read for five nights, dined two nights and two lunches, just conveninece while we were there for a conference. However, the steaks the first night were very very good and the chicke marsala and shrimp scampi the other night were equally good. Cannot say much for any sides, must not have been memorable. Wine list is barely... More

Not impressed. Ordered an item off the drink menu which clearly stated a certain brand of vodka. I was given a cheaper Svedka (which I don't like) and the drink was not made the way it said on the menu. I watched him. Shaking fruit in a shaker is NOT muddling. I didn't say anything because that's not my style,... More
