White table cloth type service and prices. Steaks, pork, fish, and potatoes are cooked to perfection. They use a spicy marinade that adds character to the meats. The salads are always fresh, but the thing that makes this restaurant so special is the large, toasted croutons that are sliced from rolls and served hot. These are our pig out goodies.... More

The fast service and food was excellent. Food came out fast and the food was to die for. I will be back.

This is a very nice neighborhood restaurant, serving good food at reasonable prices. There is usually a coupon in the local paper every week and their twist on the usual dinner roll is what they call croutons-except that these croutons ae not on your salad, they are served in a basket and are as bad for you as they are...

We love 'mom & pop' places, but this one was not worth the drive off the interstate. My husband's steak was tough and my salmon was dry. Facility is old and run down in appearance. Bathrooms unacceptable. Crouton basket (their version of a bread basket) was greasy. Dinner roll served with meal: flavorless. Service was mediocre.

Passing through and very pleased. Steak done just right and friendly staff! Homemade rolls were a nice treat. Wish we had room for desert.

Went to the Side Porch for dinner. Had a ribeye that was cooked a perfect medium rare. Staff was very nice and attentive.

We walked up at 5pm on a Saturday, and the place was packed. We were told the wait would be an hour, but it was less than 20 minutes. Wonderful surprise. The atmosphere is busy, bright, and the tables are close together. If your first priority is an intimate, serene, quiet romantic dinner I wouldn't recommend. However, the service was... More

Food is always wonderful. The wait time is usually 30 minutes but they turn tables around very quickly. Great customer service. My favorite place in Memphis.

This is a definite keeper! If you are in Memphis and want a great steak or seafood dinner without breaking the bank, ditch the familiar chains and go to Side Porch Steak House. It is a favorite of locals, which says a lot right there. The location is in an old clapboard house, and is not very big, but the... More

I've been going to The Side Porch since it opened back in the mid 70's. I even worked there in the early 90's. Their marinade is legendary and they have many, many regulars. It's a staple in the little town of Bartlett, TN!
