This has been one of my favorite haunts for years. The beer selection rotates so there is always something new on tap and they stock a fair variety of wine but to be fair, it's mostly about the beer. No hard liquor so it stays pretty mellow even on a Friday or Saturday night. The staff is friendly mostly well... More

Was our first visit to that area and to the restaurant. The fish and chips were delicious and good sized portions. The waitress was slow and not very friendly.

Good atmosphere. Older place, but well taken care of. Went for a beer and an app and was not disappointed. Would recommend the quesadilla with chicken.

Didn't have one IPA I wanted and were out of clams so all clam dishes were unavailable, Service was fine and the IPA I did have was also fine. However, I ordered fish and chips and asked the guy that waited on me how many pieces of fish came with it. He told me 3 and I asked if they... More

Always get the special. We usually go on Fridays and it's busy but worth it. The are gluten free friendly. Never had a bad meal. I go for the wine but my husband has a beer. So many to choose from. Love the relaxed atmosphere. Great local place.

It is a seat your self place. Decor is casual. You can eat at the bar, or just have a cold beer. I had a problem with the food! Fish and chips is what I had. The first try came out, french fries where cold, the fish (Cod) the batter was under cooked and very greasy. The waitress apologies and... More

The Porterhouse specializes in beer and traditional pub food. With many micro brews on tap, there is a beer available for any pallet. The food is always good. The menu is small, but everything they cook is complex, interesting, and perfect. The atmosphere reminds me of a British Pub, but with better food.

Always a great selection of real beers, especially IPA's. Noisy interior. Lower seating area has games, and rollup door cool breezes on warm summer days and evenings. Food as you might expect in a bar. Good, lively and friendly atmosphere. Best place to go after a movie at the historic Lincoln Theatre.
