My husband and I had a perfect Valentines dinner together. We made a reservation online which was quick and easy. Apparently the time was messed up and the restaurant was supposed to be closed during our time. The manager himself met us when we checked in to the hotel and wanted to inform us. He still wanted to keep our... More

We had reservations on a Friday at 6 and were seated right away. I had grouper and my husband had the filet. The grouper was good but definitely get the filet. His steak was a perfect medium Rare. The she crab soup was also yummy.

We visited on Friday night after the USA- Jamaica soccer match. Steaks and chicken are on the menu. I ordered a steak which was great. My wife wanted a hamburger but it wasn't on the menu so the waiter asked the chef if he could make her a hamburger and he made her one. The food was great and the... More

The restaurant itself is in an amazing and historic Chattanooga establishment however it has been updated and modernized with beautiful contemporary furnishings. The breakfast buffet was not much of a buffet, small quantities of low quality food. The eggs were scrambled and tasted like powder. French toast was old and more like toast then french toast, crunchy, bland and all!... More

We were seated as soon as we walked in. Waiter was on top of it. Drink orders were brought out promptly, as well as appetizer and bread. By the way, crab cakes are to die for! Steak was among the most delicious steaks I've ever had. Even my seasonal vegetable was amazing. My husband and I have decided we need... More

When we came in Porter's, the bartender greeted us with - "Do you have reservations? If not, you'll have a wait." And wait we did- for 45 minutes. When we were finally seated, there were 8 empty tables and only 4 tables taken. We asked three times for bread, our water glasses were never refilled, and our bill was wrong.... More

During a recent business trip I opted to sit at the bar for a quick meal. To accompany my shrimp cocktail, two side items were ordered, a Baked Potato and julienned squash medley. Unfortunately both items came out luke warm at best and the julienned squash was prepared with an overwhelming amout of garlic. At this point had the restaurant... More

We had lived in Chattanooga several years ago and returned to run a race. Porter's excellent service and steaks hadn't changed. It was an outstanding evening for my wife and I.
