My husband and I visited Porters for date night. It wasn't busy at all. The service was above average I would say. Food was delicious, steak was maybe a little over cooked-- but the food (and wine) were still good. We would visit again.

Our b&b owner, Ed, suggested Porter's right away. Even with downtown construction, it was easy to find a parking space. It was a quiet Monday evening. Cassie was our waitress, attentive and engaging. Hubby did the filet (they were out of Beef Wellington) and I...More

We visited on a Friday night and overhead a waitress saying she didn't have time to deal with us. So my boyfriend went to the bar to get two glasses of wine. At no point did anyone come by to take an order from us.

Severely overpriced. Dirty table cloths on our first table and the one we moved to because the first one was dirty. Server was so awkward and uncomfortable. Food was passable but nothing to rave about. Not worth it at all.

We do not list a dessert Menu because they will vary as the menu and seasons change. Currently we are featuring a Chocolate Decadence Cake, NY Cheesecake, Crème Brulee, and White Chocolate Bread Pudding.
