Porterhouse Steak and Seafood
Classic Dining Options in A Legendary Location
What we tried:
Crab Claws – These jumbo claws are served with marinade, which had an extra kick of vinegar and really made these stand out as a great way to start a meal.
Trout Parmesan – Rainbow trout that’s oven roasted topped with a Parmesan crust and served over a bed of sautéed spinach and mushrooms. As you may know, I don’t love seafood, but I did try some of the trout, and I really enjoyed it. My date did, too, as there wasn’t much of anything left on her plate at the end of the meal.
Steak Filet – I tried the six-ounce portion, which is hand-cut and seasoned with their chef’s blend of spices. It was flavorful and tender. I also added a side of pasta with their spicy cream sauce. I could’ve made the pasta my meal! The sauce was incredible. I may or may not have dipped my steak in the sauce before eating it.
Au Gratin Potatoes – You can never go wrong with cheese and potatoes paired together. The sauce is so rich and creamy and delicious. The potatoes and cheese have a light, baked crisp to them that added a nice texture to the side dish.
Lunch! They have $10 lunch specials that include po-boys, fried chicken, chicken fried steak, grilled fish and more. Each weekday features a different special. The beef po-boy is top on my list. Also, dessert. We were so full from dinner, we didn’t have room for dessert.
There are two options when dining at Porterhouse: the main dining room or the bar area. My favorite is always the bar side. With its dark brick walls and cozy lighting, it’s the closest thing to a speakeasy in town.
