Porch is a top-notch restaurant, and our favorite in the area -- actually, it's two restaurants: upstairs, there is fine dining, and downstairs is a small pub (with pub food -- the fish and chips are great) with live music every Friday night. The chef, Joe Edwards, is classically trained, and we have yet to be disappointed with anything we've had there (and we are frequent customers). The crab cakes are absolutely the best -- all chunk crabmeat with no fillers, and the smoked trout bruschetta appetizer is fantastic. Service upstairs is impeccable, as are the table appointments, and the atmosphere is quiet and gracious. Downstairs is much more relaxed and sometimes noisy, but the food and drinks are always wonderful (you can order from the pub menu or from the upstairs menu). In warm weather, there is a small outside patio with umbrella tables.
Porch sits at the intersection of two country roads in the little town of Millardsville -- a most unlikely spot for a restaurant of this caliber. It is truly one of the best restaurants we have ever been to anywhere in the world.

This was my first visit to the Porch. Awesome !!! The food was fantastic and tasty. The selection of was great. The quaint interior and exterior just adds to the experience.
The prices of food and drinks was modest. Plenty of seating.
I would highly recommend this Pub.

My wife's grandmother turned 85 so we took the family (11 adults and a kid) here for dinner. The menu was diverse and the food was very good. Service was very good too and the cake was outstanding. Great celebration.

The porch is shabby looking and could certainly use a facelift. However, if you can get past its looks, the food is pretty good.

We thought we were going out for a special meal and we did. It was not a lot of food, weel cooked however, but very pricy. We will not be going here again.
