Steak or Fish, you can't go wrong! Always a great meal and service. We love this place! The private train car booths a nice are date option. Be sure to leave room for dessert. The berry option was amazing! We will be back!

This was a gross error and does not come close to our policy of providing a welcoming gathering place for everyone. The hostess mentioned is no longer at Porters. Please give us another try soon. Our Manager would love to talk with you in person.

Happy hour is from 4 to 6 pm. This is a great place to meet after work with friends and relax on the patio. The service and food is good.

Food is always great. Very accommodating when you have food allergies. If you make reservations for you Anniversary they put flowers on the table and a signed card from the staff. Nice touches.
