I would have loved to have had a table on the porch and didn't realize that reservations cannot be made for the porch - it was such a beautiful evening, it was a shame we had to eat in the back enclosed room. But the food and service as always was wonderful.

Had lunch at Porters before going to the Bellport Playhouse to see Sound of Music. They served us promptly but you never felt rushed. The food was delicious and tops were the Chicken Sandwich, Steamed Clams, Clam Chowder and Beet Salad. Saw a lobster roll go by and looked like an amazing choice. I will have to go back to try one!

Very nice dinner. Ate outside and it was lovely. The waiter was nice and attentive. Food was delicious. Happy hour specials were a nice surprise too. Bar area and inside dining was alittle on the louder side, but still a lovely time. Thank you.

The best lobster roll you'll ever have! Great scallops and risotto! Delectable steak and lobster! Great service and ambiance. This place can get noisy but it wasn't too crowded this weekend! Our waitress and waiter were great. (We had dinner Saturday nite and went back for lunch on Sunday!

Service as always was wonderful. My daughter chose the chicken sandwich - it was gummy and a little pink. I had the roasted chicken which was bland and dry. A disappointing and expensive meal.

Very noisey. The Mashed potato’s were served cold. Sent back but came back warm but after I finished the meal. Service slow. Air conditioning was cold then warm. Would not recommend Porters.

We love the atmosphere at porters! We brought our out of state family and they loved it! The food is second to none and the service was amazing! The lobster roll is perfection and the fondue to die for! The chef was able to make me risotto without mushrooms and it was the best I’ve had!

Food, service and atmosphere are always top notch. But a bit pricey. I guess you get what you pay for?!?

My wife and I really enjoy coming here to dine. The food and service is always good and the place has a very pleasant atmosphere. She took me out for a night before father's day dinner. There was a large party seated in the main dining room while we were there, very very loud. We couldn't even have a conversation. If that wasn't bad enough my steak was a little below par for this place. Her sea bass was delicious as usual. That said the large party prompted a dine and dash evening.
Not what we anticipated from past experience. We'll be back, if it seems louder than usual they do have outside tables for this time of year.

Thank you Porter's for a wonderful birthday meal. The table was ready when we arrived and the waitress was very attentive. We did not have to ask for anything, the food was fantastic, we will definitely be booking another reservation.

Love to eat at Porters in the summer and sit out on their porch.
They still have the best clam chowder.
My partner had the lobster roll which was loaded with lobster meat
Great place before or after show at Gateway Theater
