Visited with my wife and three young kids on a Saturday around 4pm. We always plan on eating out between lunch and dinner to be as minimally disruptive as possible to the other patrons. What can I say; the food was amazing. I got the fried chicken with grits and collards while my wife got the wedged salad with grilled... More

We visited with a group of 10 on our way to an event. We found the waitress to be less than amiable, and argumentative. The food, while resembling Southern cooking, was really a trendy variation. It was not bad, but we certainly wouldn't recommend it as must do place. The menu is limited to a few items, so if you... More

OMG, this place is awesome! Everything we ordered was so delicious. My husband and I ordered the brisket and biscuit with 2 poached eggs, cheese and macaroni omelet with short ribs and bacon, pancakes, and brioche french toast and let me tell you - they are all awesome! Talk about comfort food, it was truly comforting, and with lots of... More

Such great food here - easy parking, friendly servers, and free cinnamon tortilla crisps while you wait for the food: spinach salad with salmon; brisket and biscuits; pastrami benedict; waffles and fruit; and eggs and potatoes. All five dishes were just magnificent, and the Manhattan was stiff and satisfying. I'd go back in a heartbeat, the menu varies and I... More

The menu here changes everyday so although our group had the shrimp po'boy, omelet, French toast and chicken tenders, the real draw is the taste. They managed to make each of these taste like the best we have had. It was not greasy and was fresh. This is not diner style food. And everything was reasonably priced. We went on... More

I came here with my best friends to celebrate my retirement. The Southern style dishes are super good and you get so much food. Come here when you are hungry and try the Fried Green Tomatoes and the Fried Chicken. The Burger of the Day was exceptional and their customer service was awesome. We arrived early to beat the crowd... More

If you get a hankering for good, Southern-style dishes, this is the place. Great for brunch and dinner, the traditional Southern dishes are done right and satisfying. The facility itself adds to the low key charm and makes you want to stay and visit longer.

We celebrated our son's birthday here. We tried a lot of different dishes, including the fried green tomatoes, corn bread, fried chicken, meat loaf, Osso Bucco, biscuits, mac n cheese, shrimp and grits, and libations! It was all very good, and the wait staff were great to make it a fun meal!!!!

Wish I could give a 3.5... higher than average but not what I would consider "very good". Not sure if this was a smaller menu due to Father's Day, but it was not as extensive as I previewed online. My husband likes southern style meat and dishes but we currently have a vegan daughter (teenagers!) and this had shown some... More

I was really looking forward to dinner at The Porch based on recommendations from friends. Having grown up in the south, my husband and I are constantly disappointed by CA restaurants that claim southern cooking. While The Porch was not the worst we've tried, the food falls short of real Southern cooking. The fried green tomatoes were delicious and fairly... More
