We waited 1 hour for our dinner. When we got it, our steak and salmon were cold and dry. Our waitress kept disappearing.

My husband and I were at a conference at the Gateway Center and stayed at the Double Tree. We decided to check out the restaurant at the hotel...and were pleasantly surprised! We ate at three different times and enjoyed each one. Breakfast is a buffet, lunch and dinner you order off the menu. The service was superb and the food was some of the best we have ever had. It is a little pricey, but since we were celebrating an anniversary while at the conference, it was well worth it. If we are ever back in that area, we will definitely return!!

I've been to Porter's maybe a dozen times for various special occasion dinners. My wife and I always order the pepperloin; medium rare and the largest cut so we will have leftovers to take home. The presentation used to be with the pepperloin on a metal platter, still sizzling and with a pourable container of the mustard sauce alongside. We both used to say that we could not get a better piece of beef anywhere else we had been. That was then, I guess this is now. We just recently went back for our anniversary after a couple years since our last visit. What a disappointment, I'm sorry to say. Prices up, quality way down. It may have been a mediocre piece of meat if I'd paid half the price. Not even close, this was by far the worst piece of beef I've ever gotten there. It came in four pieces, and after the first piece I thought maybe it was just bad luck. But every piece had some gristle or other oddity in the texture that you just don't expect when you pay that kind of price. Maybe it is that hard these days to get a quality piece of beef, no matter what you pay ? If so, I am sad for that. To add insult to injury, they were out of my favorite dessert (creme brulee), and when I got the bill I was surprised to learn that my substitution of mashed potato for the baked potato cost me an extra four bucks. Well, at least the atmosphere is still nice. At first I thought maybe next time I'll try the scallops, but after some thought, personally, I'm going to have to leave this place to the hotel guests with the company credit cards who may not care as much that there is now a definite disconnect between price and quality at Porter's.

A good selection of wine and a good, varied menu. Service was excellent. Not cheap but then quality never is!
