The place looked nice and enviting yet old. The food was rated 3.5 stars. I feel sorry for those that think this is worth this rating. The food quality was average at best.

We had a rehearsal dinner and welcome party at The Porterhouse Club, an upstairs venue that is part of The Porterhouse, on April 28, 2017. The venue was perfect as there were multiple rooms that allowed us to have dinner in one portion, party in another, and a baby sitter in yet another. The food was outstanding, but the filet... More

Service was prompt. I inquired about a couple of dishes and the waitress promptly recommended that I not order either. I had several inquires about the steak entrées and, although ordering separate steak entrées had smaller portions and cost more, our waitress recommended that 2 men order the porterhouse for 2. She said it will be more than you can... More

We wanted a nice steak for my husband's birthday. We went to the Porterhouse hoping for a great experience. We got 2 unremarkable steaks the were served warm at best along with a cold baked potato and steamed veggies. No substitutions on the veggies so don't ask. If you are looking for something special go somewhere else.

This is a beautifully decorated restaurant and the food was terrific. I had the 6 ounce melt in your mouth filet and my husband had the shrimp pasta which he said was delicious. It's in the heart of historical Hot Springs.

We had a group of 12 eat there after the big HSCW Corvette show and have always had our 'after show' meal there. The steaks were super tender and the sides were also very good. The prices are a bit steep compared to other restaurants but the ambiance is very nice there.

Heavenly low light- soft charming welcoming atmosphere! Knowledgeable gracious attentive staff and delectable superb high quality food, not to mention the colorful plating. Best steak in Hot Springs! Easily a favorite 👌🏼 The owner, Chef Joe Gargano was on hand and always available to patrons with his warm hospitality and smile.

Very good service! Lousy wedge salad with no wedge but just some crappy torn up iceberg lettuce. Baked potato was good. Veggies were average. Steaks were average. My Porterhouse had no flavor and the strip portion was tough. Was cooked medium rare correctly. My wife's New York Strip tasted better and had some flavor. Tab for two without alcohol with... More
