We were a party of 11 with reservations arriving for dinner prior to going to the theatre. The first words out of our mouths to our server were that we had theatre tickets and must be out on time. We had 2 1/2 hours before curtain and the restaurant was "maybe" 1/3 full and never got over 2/3 full during... More

We took our two young children to dinner at Porters for our one night out during a recent trip to Chattanooga (we were staying at the hotel so it was very convenient). We were pleased to get in to Porters on a Saturday night without at wait when the other 4 restaurants I called had between a 45-1.5 hr wait.... More

Porter's Steakhouse was delicious. The service was excellent and staff very friendly and of course the Read House is beautiful.

My wife and I stayed at the Read House over President's Day. The hotel itself was fantastic and they gave us complimentary breakfast passes at Porter's. I do realize that the waitress was training someone the morning we were there, but she was very inattentive for a fairly small group of people who were eating there. The service was slow,... More

I was the one that suggested Porters to my friends. We were going to the Tivoli and we wanted to have a nice meal before the show. Our experience started out good but empty glasses of water, wine and later coffee are just too much for me in a place like Porters. At one time I had to go looking... More

My husband and I had a perfect Valentines dinner together. We made a reservation online which was quick and easy. Apparently the time was messed up and the restaurant was supposed to be closed during our time. The manager himself met us when we checked in to the hotel and wanted to inform us. He still wanted to keep our... More

We had reservations on a Friday at 6 and were seated right away. I had grouper and my husband had the filet. The grouper was good but definitely get the filet. His steak was a perfect medium Rare. The she crab soup was also yummy.

We visited on Friday night after the USA- Jamaica soccer match. Steaks and chicken are on the menu. I ordered a steak which was great. My wife wanted a hamburger but it wasn't on the menu so the waiter asked the chef if he could make her a hamburger and he made her one. The food was great and the... More

The restaurant itself is in an amazing and historic Chattanooga establishment however it has been updated and modernized with beautiful contemporary furnishings. The breakfast buffet was not much of a buffet, small quantities of low quality food. The eggs were scrambled and tasted like powder. French toast was old and more like toast then french toast, crunchy, bland and all!... More
