My wife & I celebrated my birthday at the Porch on February 10th for the second year in a row. We shared the clam strip salad (the small one is enough for two people), the Rootbeer Ribs and the Bread pudding and Creme Brulee for dessert. We also ordered the Notebook red wine which was outstanding! Mitch was our server... More

This is a quaint little restaurant with sparing seating. I had breakfast here and it was good, but very foo-fooy. If you are ready to try something new (poached eggs with smokey cheese and rosemary) this is a great idea. If you're looking for scrambled eggs, bacon and hashbrowns, you will want to move on.

We were greeted by several staff members and seated at the exact table we had requested. The menu is very broad with dishes such as rainbow trout on mushroom risotto, cranberry ribs, moussaka, pasta with bacon or chicken, seafood stew, meatloaf, several flatbreads and salads with or without chicken. We were frequently checked on but not bothered, and had nice... More

I have no clue as to whether The Porch is good. I had heard good things, so my husband made a dinner reservation for my birthday. My birthday was on the 10th of the month. The reservation was made the week before. My husband spoke with a gentleman on the phone to do this. We had snow. We heard nothing... More

Our group of 10, 5 adults and 5 kids under 8, were travelling to Bend when we stopped in at 7pm on a Thursday night. With no reservations, they seated us immediately and provided great service with no problems even though they were short staffed. A great menu and wine list with lots of local options, even the kids menu... More

Quaint setting and good service. The food was good but not exceptional. The truffle fries and wedge salad were delicious. The clams lacked flavor and seafood pot pie was not a pot pie as there was no puff pastry, it was fish soup. Not our best local choice for dining, but we will likely return.

The food at the porch is delicious "comfort" food. They always have a great seafood special. The meatloaf if amazing and enough for 2 meals! Delicious cocktails. I can not say enough good things about the service. They go far out of their way to make you comfortable and feel special. Also treat my kids like royalty!

I was in Sisters for work and had an unplanned dinner available. We poured over options and menus and decided to try The Porch. It was one of the best restaurant choices I have made in a while - and I travel all over the world for work. The service was top notch, as was the food. The choices were... More

The porch is not a place where the name of the dish necessarily matches what you might expect. Don't let that deter you, and be prepared to be both flexible and surprised. Among our party, we ordered Spiced Beet Salad (universally applauded), Baba Ghanoush (a first-time for two of the members, but all approved even though it wasn't as smokey-flavored... More

We chose this restaurant following an article in the "Oregon Magazine On-line). We wanted somewhere special for my wife's "Big Birthday" celebration and certainly hit the jackpot. Any one of the dishes looked fabulous, we wished we could have tried them all, all complemented by a well chosen wine list. This is fine dining at its best.
