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!

The best lobster roll you'll ever have! Great scallops and risotto! Delectable steak and lobster! Great service and ambiance. This place can get noisy but it wasn't too crowded this weekend! Our waitress and waiter were great. (We had dinner Saturday nite and went back for lunch on Sunday!

Service as always was wonderful. My daughter chose the chicken sandwich - it was gummy and a little pink. I had the roasted chicken which was bland and dry. A disappointing and expensive meal.

Very noisey. The Mashed potato’s were served cold. Sent back but came back warm but after I finished the meal. Service slow. Air conditioning was cold then warm. Would not recommend Porters.

We love the atmosphere at porters! We brought our out of state family and they loved it! The food is second to none and the service was amazing! The lobster roll is perfection and the fondue to die for! The chef was able to make me risotto without mushrooms and it was the best I’ve had!

Food, service and atmosphere are always top notch. But a bit pricey. I guess you get what you pay for?!?

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.
