Had the Bleu Filet done medium served with red potatoes and garden vegetables. Ruby Port perfect after dinner drink. Fried green tomatoes just okay. Steak is out of this world. Excellent service!

This location was recommended by a bartender at a local hotel. 3 of us entered the restaurant without reservations and we were greeted with "give me a minute and we will seat you". We elected to sit at the bar and not only had a tume, but the service, hospitality and food was great. Prices were very good as well.

First let me say this is probably our favorite restaurant in Athens for a nice couple's dinner or celebration. It is quiet and not overly crowded (like some other good Athens' restaurants). The brunch was not up to the level that we have come to expect from the Porterhouse. The prime rib was pretty good, but the chicken/potato mess was... More

Average probably because I expected more based on recommendations. She crab soup was very good but steak needed salt and lots of pepper for flavor. Service was below average after the hostess, who was very pleasant. I only come to Athens for business but I will try other places next time.

My husband brought me here for brunch on Sunday and it was really great! The meats were all cooked perfectly from the salmon to the delicious prime rib. We both enjoyed an omelette, made to order at the buffet. They were perfectly cooked as well. Despite it only being a self-serve brunch buffet, service was exceptional. The waitress kept our...

We expected more from a higher-end restaurant. The pumpkin soup was ok, if a bit thick. The pasta primavera was extremely garlicky, and the steak came out cold. Our waitress was flustered, even only having a few tables to tend, and kept accusing the kitchen staff of making mistakes. A disappointment, to be sure.

This is the best nice steakhouse in Athens. The prime rib is always good as is the filet! They also have other options if steak is not your thing. Excellent drinks. Friendly staff

In Athens for business and we found this to be the best steakhouse in town. The New York strip was awesome. Would definitely recommend to anyone!!!

Hubby and I ate here tonight. First time. Cocktails were ok. A little too much mix for our taste. Wedge salad was good and cold. Loved the dressing!! We both had filet and mine also came with shrimp. Our servers description on the "smashed potatoes" was nothing compared to how wonderful they really were. They were awesome.....perfect texture and seasoning... More

We decided to eat here because the menu looked good online. Wow! I am so glad we did. I had the mushroom soup to start and it was the most delicious soup I have had in a while! My bacon wrapped filet medallions were cooked to perfection!
