Had a wonderful evening with a romantic table by the fireplace.
But ordered the sirloin and the meat was so tough I couldn't even cut it.
Brought it home for my dog.

We ordered the baked clams to start, they were mostly bread and non existent clams. The chicken wings were just ok.
We had the steak sandwich for our entree and they were just ok.
I had asked for refills of my Arnold Palmer’s and the waiter never said that they didn’t give refills, when questioned he said “oh yeah we don’t give free refills”

Food was okay - our server was great and so were the other busboys/girls. The noise level was the main problem. It was so extremely loud I could not have a conversation with my husband sitting directly in front of me!

Never disappoints. Drinks and meal were outstanding as was the service. The short ribs and Chilean sea bass were both delicious. Desserts are home made. Highly recommend.

This was our first time at Porters and let me tell you we will definitely be returning. The food was outstanding, the service was outstanding and the atmosphere was outstanding. The entire staff was attentive to us, always asking if we needed anything or if our food was to our liking. I would highly recommend Porters to anyone wanting fantastic tasting food and fantastic service.

The dinner was excellent and portions were large. Almost every plate was sufficient for two. Expect to take some food home. The general ambience is upscale New England serving interesting food to the local residents. I’m not sure how crowded it would be on an in season weekend but it was full on a beautiful September Tuesday night. Service was excellent as well, attentive, polite, but not overbearing. Finally I thought the prices were very fair. I will definitely return and bring friends.

My sisters and I enjoyed a wonderful evening. The food was amazing and I was happy to have a gluten free option. The wait staff was great. They were pleasant and efficient. We never felt rushed and our empty dishes were removed quickly. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

Excellent service, delicious food. Waitress Madison was perfectly attentive. Very professional and friendly. I had the short ribs that melted in your mouth with the perfect blend of mashed potatoes, green beans and fried crispy onions. My wife had a delicious filet mignon. Would totally reccomend.

I would have loved to have had a table on the porch and didn't realize that reservations cannot be made for the porch - it was such a beautiful evening, it was a shame we had to eat in the back enclosed room. But the food and service as always was wonderful.

Had lunch at Porters before going to the Bellport Playhouse to see Sound of Music. They served us promptly but you never felt rushed. The food was delicious and tops were the Chicken Sandwich, Steamed Clams, Clam Chowder and Beet Salad. Saw a lobster roll go by and looked like an amazing choice. I will have to go back to try one!
