This place serves the best steaks I've ever had in the Athens area. The service is good (even on New Years Eve!) and I've never been disappointed. The filet medalions are sublime and they understand how to cook something medium to medium rare. Always a...More

Service was phenomenal and the food was equally good. All four meals were perfect. Relaxed atmosphere and excellent location to the Classic Center. We will be back.

My companion was set on a steak. He had the NY strip and I had Scampi on angel hair pasta. We shared fried green tomatoes as an appetizer which was fabulous! Service and food I would rate as very good. Caesar salad was mediocre. Good...More

Came to Porterhouse to celebrate several events. Was treated by the bday "girl's" husband. He took us there two years ago as well. Service was GREAT; food was wonderful! I love this place!

I ordered takeout here while I was here for a weekend trip and it was awesome. Had the crab-stuffed tilapia with rice/veggies. It was so well seasoned and the portion was large. I would imagine that it would taste even better while dining in.

Had the Bleu Filet done medium served with red potatoes and garden vegetables. Ruby Port perfect after dinner drink. Fried green tomatoes just okay. Steak is out of this world. Excellent service!

This location was recommended by a bartender at a local hotel. 3 of us entered the restaurant without reservations and we were greeted with "give me a minute and we will seat you". We elected to sit at the bar and not only had a...More

First let me say this is probably our favorite restaurant in Athens for a nice couple's dinner or celebration. It is quiet and not overly crowded (like some other good Athens' restaurants). The brunch was not up to the level that we have come to...More
