Porters on the Lane
I make it a point go to Porters when in Bellport visiting my cousin. Always delicious and always fabulous service. Already anticipating my next visit!
Good food, good prices, great ambiance.
My wife and I really enjoy coming here to dine. The food and service is always good and the place has a very pleasant atmosphere. She took me out for a night before father's day dinner. There was a large party seated in the main dining room while we were there, very very loud. We couldn't even have a conversation. If that wasn't bad enough my steak was a little below par for this place. Her sea bass was delicious as usual. That said the large party prompted a dine and dash evening.
Not what we anticipated from past experience. We'll be back, if it seems louder than usual they do have outside tables for this time of year.
Very good food, excellent service. Very noisy room but overall we were very pleased and would come back. We had the shrimp and the scallops, we’d recommend both.
Thank you Porter's for a wonderful birthday meal. The table was ready when we arrived and the waitress was very attentive. We did not have to ask for anything, the food was fantastic, we will definitely be booking another reservation.
Outside seating on a porch with overhang . Server was friendly good oysters and nice wine. Lunch menu was diverse and their beet Salad was refreshing. Would love to go there for dinner
This was my first visit to Porters. The food was excellent!! We opted to eat outside as the bar area was crowded and quite loud. Our outside table was lovely and our waitress was excellent. We had a very relaxing and enjoyable experience
Love to eat at Porters in the summer and sit out on their porch.
They still have the best clam chowder.
My partner had the lobster roll which was loaded with lobster meat
Great place before or after show at Gateway Theater
Birthday with fiancé
We love coming to Porters on the Lane just before we go to the Gateway Playhouse for a performance!
Food is always great, wonderful wine selection and friendly staff!!!
Great food, great staff. Overall great experience!
Eating on the porch was nice (although we needed to change out seats as did the diners after us, due to the intense sun.
Over, food was good although both our salmon's were a tad dry. The shrimp cocktail was good. Even outside, it can get noisy.
Always a favorite neighborhood gem to enjoy! Everything is usually delicious and if there is a problem with your meal, they will happily fix it or substitute it for something else! We’ve been here so many times that we’ve lost count! Make reservations just to be on the safe side! They will often TRY to fit you in if you call ahead! Great staff and our compliments to the chefs!!! See you again soon!
This is a great restaurant with an outside porch for dining in warm weather. The staff is friendly and helpful. I am Gluten Free and there are options for me. This is close to Gateway Plaza Theatre so a great option for dinner before a show. Food options were good. Nice portion. I would recommend it.
I have been to porters a number of times food is always great. But I waited 30 mins after my 7.15pm reservation to be seated in the rear corner of the restaurant. It was nuts. And the noise in my spot was borderline unbearable. The waitress was very nice but I left not wanting to return. A shame.
Best fillet mignon I ever had
Food and service at Porters never disappoints. Always great. The fireplace was decorated so nicely with pink roses for Mother’s Day. It was very loud this evening but there were larger parties for Mother’s Day which likely caused the extra noise.
Impeccable service and the Mother’s Day Menu had many choices.
We are a group of women from Northport who start our yearly Ladies do lunch & the Theatre at the Gateway at Porter's. We look forward to the best lobster roll of the year! The servers are always so friendly, that is a plus! Keep up the good work!!
Never disappointed dining here.
Everything was delicious. The air came on towards the end of our meal which made us a lil cold but otherwise it was all great.
First time here. Great food great service great atmosphere. Will be back
Pre-Easter family meal
Porters is one of my favorite places to dine. The food is great, the staff is friendly, and there is never an issue with parking.
I made dinner reservations originally for 6 but needed to add 2 more and we had no trouble with the change. They were more than happy to meet this request. Even though we arrived early, our table was ready so were seated right away. The service was very good and attentive to our every need. We have been to Porters several times in the past couple of years and we continue to have very pleasant experiences. This is a terrific place for dinner, lunch, or some drinks to catch up with friends.
Jamie our waitress was great
My husband had burger and I Had lobster tail and ceaser salad and cream brûlée for dessert
Great food and service. A bit noisy at dinner time but many reasonably priced choices.
Fast service without rush. Delicious food and great staff. My first time there and will be back.
Husband retirement dinner with parents , mother-in-law and wife
This is my 4th time at Porters, I always enjoy the dining experience here. I typically order salads which are always very good.
Great service and food
Great food , cocktails , service and a fantastic ambience !!!
Porters is consistently very good. Always greeted warmly. They not only know good food and drink but they know good hospitality.
cute place, required walking up stairs - no accommodations for the handicapped - bar right next to the restaurant and the noise was outrageous - we could not hear ourselves think.service was ok..a little slow - food was good
I asked for two extra dishes to share a salad and I received only one. I had to eat my salad on that tiny bread dish.
When apps came out they brought one dish only. I guess I was a ghost Saturday night.. :(
Other than that everything was very good.
What a great spot. Dinner was excellent (crab cakes, Steak, chilean sea bass), crème brûlée was amazing, but the espresso was my only complaint.
Delicious food, great service, great atmosphere
Wonderful meal. I had the sea scallops over a mushroom and asparagus risotto with shaved parmesan. Sea scallops were cooked perfectly.
My date and I had arrived early to have a drink at the bar first. When the time for our dinner reservation came we were promptly seated. We had the fried provolone appetizer that we shared. My date had the chicken dish while I had the lamb. Both dishes were excellent. My sides were sautéed spinach and then I changed my potatoes to the Brussels Sprouts. I really enjoyed both sides, but unfortunately I was unable to finish them. The service was great too. We received the right amount of service not too much but always there when needed
Have been to this restaurant several times and it never disappoints. Just love it! Food is always good, great selection to please everyone. Staff is always on point. Wish it was closer to my home, but worth the drive!
