This is a constantly changing restaurant mostly in part to the ownership of the building. The people of Portage do not want to support anything owned by this man. AS a result the food and type of restauarnt changes within a few short months. Right...More

We've gone twice to Larry's Smokehouse, and both times the food and service were exceptional. Our server Star was very friendly and attentive. Larry's Smokehouse is a wonderful addition to downtown Portage. The food is great! The prices are more than reasonable, and you won't...More
