This could truly be an enjoyable place to eat if the service was improved. The menu is varied and all the items I tried were excellent with reasonable prices.

We celebrated our anniversary here! It was great to have it right in the lobby of our hotel. It was delicious.

We ate here since we were staying in the hotel. The food looked old and was overcooked. The food just also smelled bad. We told the Bartender (Rodriquez?) and he just laughed and shrugged his shoulders and said "oh well". The soft drinks were flat and tasted funny, the bar area smelled funny (like feet) and just didnt seem clean.... More

I stayed at the the Wyndham Suites in Glenview in which this restaurant is located. Last night's special was all you can eat pasta with a choice of a side of soup or salad. The price was incredibly reasonable...$9.99. The pasta was surprisingly good, the salad fresh, and the bread delicious. I had a cousin who always would say that... More

Bar food and over priced but the staff was friendly. The options sound tasty but the food was bland and they should stick to bar food

The service was very good, as was the food. The odd thing though, you are sitting in an area of the hotel lobby that has just half height walls. So, you can hear people checking in, front desk conversations, we even heard a vacuum that was running in a hallway somewhere nearby. For a good meal, it's a good spot.... More

I had breakfast at Porters both days that I attended a convention and it was good but there were no breakfast meats that I could find. We all should really stay away from these but at least a piece of ham or bacon would have been nice. I really cannot complain about anything because the service was nice and there... More
