    We’ve come to realize Porter Creek is very hit or miss. Went with my 2 young daughters. Meals were slow to arrive. My salad was swimming in salad dressing and very sloppily presented. Our server was good—friendly and polite.

    The service was horrendously slow. The ribs had fried onions that tasted as though the oil had just fried fish and the old fashion was not good

    The restaurant was very nice, clean and inviting. Our server, Grace I believe was great! She was knowledgeable and when i asked for a drink that was not on the menu she came back from the bar a few minutes later with a replacement suggestion that was good. Food was served fast, hot and was great!

    This was the perfect place to take one of our business suppliers out for supper recently. Their three-season room made it feel like we were outside while still not being exposed to the elements. As always, the food and service was fantastic.

    The hangar steak was cooked beautifully, and the green beans with red pepper were the star of the show! We had a couple hiccups with service: 1) we went to the bar to wait for our table, and waited for the bartender to notice us. Several minutes passed and another couple came to the bar. A few minutes later the bartender went right to them. We waited while she chatted and took:filled their order, anthem another bartender came in and helped us; 2). The same thing happened in the dining room. We waited about 10 minutes without any initial contact, and watched as a table which was seated after us received water and waiter service. Eventually a waiter came by and said there were some communication issues that evening. Otherwise the meal was fine and the service (once we were noted), was very good!

    I enjoyed the duck and the small salad with field greens. My husband had the Caesar salad, which was good and the Walleye which was fine but unexpectedly deep fried. The cocktails were ok.

    Notes from open table weren't acknowledged. Food was GREAT except for the amount of time it took to arrive at the table, and the cook/quality of the filet (which arrived overdone twice, and tasted dry). The manager comped the steak which was so very nice considering it was barely touched at the end of the meal. We might have stayed for dessert but, having waited so long for the main to arrive (tables came and went around us), then the re-fired steak, we just wanted to get moving. The hangar steak was TERRIFIC with the beans and fingerling potatoes, and one party in our group had the duck and said it was one of the best he's had. One final comment on wait staff - our waitress was efficient but referred to the woman as "dear", which didn't seem appropriate considering she didn't know us and was decades our junior.

    This was my first time at Porter Creek, but I will definitely return! I had a good meal, reasonably priced the ambience was nice, it was a little loud but they were very busy, so you have to expect that. The only downside was the restaurant was kind of hard to see from the street and I almost drove right by it! Other than that it was a very good experience, I definitely recommend Porter Creek!

    We had a reservation; our food was very good; however, we were seated in the overflow area right 2 feet from the kitchen. So the continual in and out of the kitchen was a bit annoying And certainly did not add to the ambience of what is normally a very wonderful experience. Service was very slow… I understand it was busy… But when people are seated after you and the food comes before you, it was frustrating.

    Didn’t see waiter a whole lot, not very personable. Was not prepared for all of the bones in the walleye. My husband had to debone it for me. It tasted good, just wasn’t great to have to stop eating often to pick out bones.

    I'm never disappointed by the food; the service was a bit slow (which we can understand) but we were only checked on once and then not again until we got our bill so we didn't really have good chance to order a second drink before it was time to leave (and we would have gladly ordered another). Servers were pleasant as usual, I just wish there was an additional runner checking on things like additional drinks.

    Porter Creek was amazing! The food, the service and the ambiance were fantastic! It was my first visit here and I was impressed with everything - especially when all the other restaurants in the area that are supposed to be ‘fine dining’ seem to be coming up short. We had a party of four including a child. Everything was served fast, hot and presented well. Dessert and coffee was offered and served fast enough without us feeling that we were being rushed. This is definitely my favorite restaurant in Fargo! I will recommend it to others and dine here again!

    Met with friends. Food was okay. Salmon portion/meal was very small for price. They removed a few items from menu recently including the Calamari( too bad, best Calamari we ever had) Overall, pricey evening for type of food we had. Won’t go back unless they bring back the Calamari!

    We had specifically asked for a non-high-top table. The hostess did seat us at a booth after we mentioned again that we didn't want a high top (physical issues and prefer regular heights). Booths were empty, but it seemed like a big deal. ??? Our waiter/bar tender was friendly and attentive without hovering. Food was excellent!
