The Porter's House is a very delicious restaurant and we've been multiple times. The menu is small but the food is generally executed well. Good size portions, however it is very pricey. The atmosphere is that of most upscale steakhouses; Low lights, calm music and attentive staff. The cocktail menu is impressive. The wine flights are a really cool concept. The restaurant also features some really cool events. We've done a private Bourbon tasting here before and really enjoyed the experience. So why 4-stars instead of 5? We realized halfway through our meal every other table was being brought complimentary bread. We however were never offered this. The braised short rib was tasty however its a favorite we order often and expect it to be fall off the bone soft. For us, excuse the pun but the short rib fell...short.
*Excellent for large groups!* We had a company dinner gathering here and this team did an awesome job serving us quickly. Between the drink orders to the food orders everything was delivered with excellence. For my meal I selected the steak and it was fantastic. Over all whether you are looking for something more intimate or looking for a great place to gather with a large group The Porters House has you covered!
The food was amazing but the service was lackluster at best. We sat at the bar and Lindsey (who was working the well) ignored us for the entire time. I have worked in upscale restaurants for years and have never seen anything like it. She would talk to regulars around us but I sat with an empty drink for long periods of time and she never made eye contact or tried to talk to us. We finally decided to interrupt and ask her to order our dessert as we sat there waiting for over 15 minutes to be acknowledged and the other bartender was way busier. Now during this time she just chatted with staff, regulars and and focused on only two tickets in the well, so when she was dismissive and did not know what they had for dessert I decided I had to write a review. The sad part is we were honoring the passing of a dear friend that we worked in restaurants with for years. We had every intention of over tipping and spending way more than we did. What a loss.

We were celebrating my sons high school graduation. From the moment we walked in the staff was amazing our services was amazing the food was amazing. I cant say enough what a great evening we had. To top off the celebration he got a brownie with ice cream.
Very serviceable steakhouse. Please try the sausage platter. The ribeye was cooked to order perfectly and the sides were mostly good. Cream spinach was meh.
