Great feel to the place, the food was just so-so. The flash fried brussel sprouts were sort of mush, although the house-made bacon chunks were good. Avoid the Porters Prawns that come in a thick, goopy, and flavorless sauce. The steak was cooked properly.

We stop here on trips to California. The bar opens early and serves the same delicious food as the restaurant. The wine, dinners and dessert are all very good - as is the staff.

Very nice place. Fun and professional staff. Bernie was very attentive. Food presentation well thought out. Would return on next pass thru. If they sold gift items I would have purchased.

I have been to Porter's for dinner 6 + times over the course of 2 years and it all depends on who is cooking ... I order duck in season and once it was over cooked once it was delicious, and once the sides and the glaze were killed by butter and cream sauces. You have a 50/50 chance there.

Due to a change in plans, we ended eating at Porters on Thanksgiving evening. The place was jam packed. Our server, Blaine, was outstanding. This gentleman can spell "customer service". Unfortunately, the prime rib we ordered did not meet Porters' standards. We chalked it up to way too many people resulting in overload. But when one is used to excellent... More

Good menu, food well prepared and presented attractively. Good bar, and efficient wait staff. One of the better restaurants in Medford, and prices are somewhere between moderate and high. Located in a remodeled old railroad station, with old station mementos and decor preserved, dark wood and dim lighting. Free parking lot.

My husband and I have been regulars at Porter's since we moved to Medford in mid-2014. Our favorite things to order were the fabulous Seafood Platter (no longer on the menu) and the Flourless Chocolate Cake (no longer on the menu). Last year we went to Porter's for Thanksgiving with another couple; it was quite good. We're going again this... More

I came here with a girlfriend for food and drinks and was very impressed! Our server was friendly. She let us sample beer before purchasing, and the food exceeded my expectations (get the fish tacos- SO YUMMY.) Definitely a great place for a special occasion or the occasional night out.
