It was extremely busy on Saturday night and although it is our go to restaurant do you busboy and waitress or overworked and could not keep up with the demands of all the tables they had so we had to wait for drinks and water and bread a number of times

The food was very good as usual in the profiterole‘s for desert or exceptional as always

I just wish there were something I could do about the noise level it was deafening and we literally had to scream to hear each other but I’ll go back

We started with chicken wings that were delicious and tangy.One person had the onion soup (which she said was outstanding) and salad with sliced steak, and two of us enjoyed the chicken sandwich with side salad instead of fries. It's great that they substitute salad for fries--appreciate the flexibility. Server was pleasant and we enjoyed our visit.

The food and service was excellent, we traveled to Long Island to see our daughter in a choir competition at the middle school and needed to find a place for dinner. Looked through trip advisor and found this place. Would go again if we are in the area. Highly recommended

This was our first visit to Porter's and we will definitely be back. The food was delicious and the atmosphere was pleasant. Our waiter was very attentive, but there were at least 3 other servers who were keeping an eye on us as well, without being intrusive. We felt very well taken care of.

We have our office holiday dinner at Porters every year and we are never disappointed. They are accommodating and friendly, service is always excellent - I know, because I was a server for 10 years and know how a restaurant works from the kitchen to the tables - and the food is outstanding. The atmosphere is joyful and the restaurant is beautiful.

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”
