This was an excellent choice. I had a wonderful and different plate. I had the porkloin plate, such an surprise in taste and flavors. Swiss chard with a fruit chutney was flavorful and tangy. The braised porkloin and spaghetti squash set each other off. Well done. My husband had the Italian sausage flat bread, again a unguie flavor of sweet... More

Living so close to the restaurant, we visit Porter Creek frequently, we've never been disappointed in the service or the quality of the food. Never have we been disappointed. I think we have had virtually every item on the menu and have never been disappointed.

The Porter Creek Hardwood Grill came up on our GPS as a place nearby, so we tried it, and I was glad we did. The meal was excellent, the service was great and the atmosphere was very conducive to conversation and business discussion.

Prompt service. Explanation of Menu items and Nightly specials was very good. Boring Mashed potatoes so I opted for the Baked Potato. The potato was ok just not what I wanted and I had asked for Real Butter and got some Whipped Something? Wood-Fire is very good for the food prep and enjoy the added flavor.
