Enjoyed dinner and drinks here. The food is terrific and the drinks were even better. The staff were fun and efficient. It's pricey...but for a a treat it was the right place to be!

Went to eat there before a show at the Tivoli. Just an easy walk between the two. An eclectic array of patrons, all receiving good service and very good food. There was a menu for theatre goers which was just right.

The food was good and priced about right (meaning expensive) for a Historic Hotel. Unfortunately while the servers were wonderful the kitchen was very slow for the number of people in the restaurant.

This is was a very average lunch experience. Although the food was tasty, the service was somewhat inattentive. Not at the top of my list for a return visit.

Was a little concerned about some of the low reviews but found porters to be a much higher ranked Resturant. We ordered two red wines that our server selected based on our descriptions of our preferences. He hit it spot on perfect. I ordered the top steak on the menu, and wife had filet Oscar, which she said was wonderful.... More

We were a party of 11 with reservations arriving for dinner prior to going to the theatre. The first words out of our mouths to our server were that we had theatre tickets and must be out on time. We had 2 1/2 hours before curtain and the restaurant was "maybe" 1/3 full and never got over 2/3 full during... More

We were pleased to get in to Porters on a Saturday night without at wait when the other 4 restaurants I called had between a 45-1.5 hr wait.... More

Porter's Steakhouse was delicious. The service was excellent and staff very friendly and of course the Read House is beautiful.

My wife and I stayed at the Read House over President's Day. The hotel itself was fantastic and they gave us complimentary breakfast passes at Porter's. I do realize that the waitress was training someone the morning we were there, but she was very inattentive for a fairly small group of people who were eating there. The service was slow,... More

I was the one that suggested Porters to my friends. We were going to the Tivoli and we wanted to have a nice meal before the show. Our experience started out good but empty glasses of water, wine and later coffee are just too much for me in a place like Porters. At one time I had to go looking... More
