This place sells the best steak I have ever tasted in my life. I have been to Ruth's Chris Steak House and Manny's Steak House. The Porterhouse Steak & Seafood restaurant wins first prize for having the best tasting steak. Their prices

I was here for a birthday celebration and wow, expensive!! You wouldn't guess by walking in the door that the prices should be that high? The fish was awful and they were surprised we didn't like it. Really? It was extremely fishy

Porterhouse is a gem. We eat out at steakhouses 10-2- times a year at the top spots-Ruth's Chris, Mortons, Murry's, Capital Grill...and since a couple of years ago have settled in going to Porterhouse in Little Canada. They charge a lot

I have never been so offended at a restaurant in my entire life.
I ordered a filet, medium-well. The steak came RARE, I didn't even need to say a thing to the waitress- she noticed and immediately took the steak back. I was not bothered by this, it happens.
My husband ordered the sea bass and something wasn't quite right with it. He said it was rubbery, not flakey he honestly could not eat it. He told the waitress that something wasn??t right with the fish. He didn??t want to insinuate that it may be possible the fish wasn??t fresh, so he just told her that ??something doesn??t seem right with the fish? as politely as possible.
The manager came to our table and asked ??does the water taste okay at least?? How rude.
I didn??t say a thing about the steak and my husband felt really bad about mentioning that he wasn??t able to eat the fish. I immediately placed my check card at the end of the table.
I feel justified in writing this negative review because I shared my opinion with the waitress. She was shocked when I told her what the manager said, her exact response was ??what?? The steak was rare. I don??t understand- I was the one who said the steak was rare.?
In the restaurants defense, my steak was good when it came back (fyi: the baked potato was way too salty), the hostess, bartender and waitress were wonderful. The manager should be replaced. He is rude.
I will not be patronizing this restaurant again and will make sure to let others know why. I actually left the restaurant feeling sad that I had been treated this way.

I am looking forward to my second annual Aug (2009) trip to MN when I will make a visit to the Porter House Steak and Seafood establishment. I cannot get walleye in Colorado... so this is my chance to eat up. I was there in 2008 and loved the food, atmosphere and other people at the bar. It was great.... I can't wait.

Cons: ?

I have eaten at the Porterhouse at least 20 times in the last 4 years and I can't say I have been dissapointed even once. As much as I like steak I am finding myself ordering the "Shore lunch" walleye most of the time. It's the best fish on the menu (in my opinion) and has been consistently cooked just right. The service is always 5 star. The wait staff is well trained and even when it's busy (which is most of the time) they are always watching to make sure your needs are met.

Hidden in Little Canada, the oldest community in Minnesota, is a tiny gem of a steakhouse that has delighted us every time we have dined there. We have visited the restaurant several times, since the first week it opened. We have been very, very pleased with the food and service every time. The most remarkable thing is the quality of the steaks. I would put them on par with the St. Paul Grill or Lindy's. Each time we have dined there, all of the side dishes were also very nicely done. If one were to imagine what a restaurant steak experience should exactly be- top quality, flavorful meat, seasoned perfectly, done appropriately, and with each side dish exquisitely done, that would be Porterhouse. The particular site of this restaurant, 35E and Little Canada Rd. has seen every restaurant in this building fail since 1971. Porterhouse has been at this location several years, seems to be busy every night, and has a wonderfully solid reputation. In each of our visits we have seen a consistency of excellence, and we have been pleased by the attentiveness of the wait staff.

Dined there on 10/16/06 and were not impressed. My mother and my wife both got potatoes that were burned. They traded them in for green beans which were ok. My wife's pork chops were pink inside when she ordered them medium. I ordered my steak medium and it was rarer than my father's steak, which he ordered medium rare.

All in all, it's a decent place, but I don't like it when food is not cooked as ordered. Pretty pricy too.

I had the sirloin and lobster, I never order meat in a restaurant, ususally shrimp or lobster or crab. I loved the steak so much that I enjoyed it more
than the lobster and that just blows me away. The food was seasoned just perfectly. I loved the fresh bacon and pepper. The service was wonderful and I met new people in the lounge while waiting to be seated.
Also, My son washed his gift certificate I had given him and his wife for Easter and I brought in the shreds and they replaced no questions asked.
Customer service at its best... I truly cannot say enough about this restaurant except I wish it were a little bit bigger cause sometimes I have not been able to wait the time it has taken to get seated....

My husband and I have been dining at the Porterhouse about once a month for the last year. While the food is excellent, what keeps up going back is the service. Everyone is so friendly, knowledgeable and most importantly, approachable.
The Porterhouse has quickly become our "go to" resturant for all occaisions.
I highly reccommend making reservations on the weekends.

I heard good things about this place and finally went and checked it out on a recent Friday night. I made reservations at 7:30 and out table was ready and waiting which was nice because it was busy. I ordered the pike and got it blackened. It wasn't very good and a little pricey. The other 3 I was with loved what they had ordered. Sea bass, which was a special for the day, and the 10 ounce filet. The artichoke dip was very good. The service was excellent.

Excellent food...Excellent service...Excellent location. It was definitely comparable to Murray's or Morton's as far as quality of the steaks and their preparation. And you get more for your money! I had the filet mignon and lobster, and my date had the New York Strip. Both steaks were perfectly prepared, and my lobster had a seasoning on it that made it very tasty! The garlic mashed potatoes and mushrooms (the mushrooms!!!) were also to die for! Thanks to the reviewer that added information about dress. We were dressed down, and didn't feel out of place at all. I thought the atmosphere was great! I would
definitely go back again!

Porter House was recommended by co worker. Husband & I tried it and were so pleased!! The food was WONDERFULLY prepared. I especially enjoyed my Spinach salad with warm bacon dressing. Both of us had the filet mignon, mine the smallest portion and it was exquisite.....accompanied with the Bernaise sauce. I damn near licked the plate!! Can't wait to go back again. A must for everyone to try!

My wife & I have been to the Porterhouse 6 times in the past 5 months. We have never failed to have a perfect meal. The steaks are outstanding and the fish dishes have always been mouthwatering. The waitstaff is attentive without being in your face and are very knowledgeable about their fare. They have a small but good wine list. We will be back many more times.

Porterhouse is a suburban gem. Don't judge by viewing the outside of the building or location. It's well appointed. The staff is unbelievable and consistently friendly and helpful. We've been there several times sense it opened - alone - and with friends - and have never been disappointed. Cocktails are expertely prepared and the wine list much better than many standard wine lists. Steaks, Seafood, fish entries are well prepared and consistently tasty. I personally love the crab legs. They are easy to eat because they are partially cracked and I have found them always to be served warm. This is a great spot for a regular dining, special occassions and for business dinners.

We've been to Porterhouse about 10 times since it opened. The food is always consistent and the service is very good. It's nice because we've taken our 2 year old there a few times and they don't seem to mind. Last week, I had the pork chops wrapped with jalapeno smoked bacon that were incredible. We'll definitely be going back....

I took some friends to Porterhouse after a golf tournament. They were very impressed with both the portion size and the flavor/quality of the meat. For the cost it is much more favorable than any of the other steak houses. For the price you actually get a meal, with a steak that is the same size or larger than Mortons, Ruths Chris or Mannys. The atmosphere is wonderful and you don't feel out of place dressed down or up. Don't let the exterior fool you. Porterhouse is a diamond in the rough.

Very sorry to say that the quality of this resturant has gone dramatically down hill over the last 6 months. They have lost the ability to properly cook steaks by making the excuse that "our cook is new." How many times can a man's meal be ruined? Too many in a row. I'll be going elsewhere.

Porterhouse is a wonderful restaurant! It isn't a "super-steakhouse" like Manny's, but the food quality is just as good and the price is significantly less. The service is impeccable, and the atmosphere is better than the "super-steakhouses" in town. I have been there three times, and I love it.
