Thanks for coming by with your husband, Deborah! That sounds like a nice little lunch date. I'm glad you loved the hamburger, but it's a bummer your husband wasn't enamored with the chicken fried steak. I'm sure we can find something he'll love on the menu, and we can't wait to see you again! Best, Deb Gallington, Owner More

It's a small but quaint little place located in the old part of town. It has every wine you could want and food is good. Owner usually greets each table when she is there. Its more of an adult atmosphere.

Deb G, Owner at Mainly Drinks, responded to this review

It's great the food was fresh and hot, Ann, but I'm sorry to hear the flavor wasn't what you were expecting. I'm also sorry if my not stopping by offended you. That's never my intention. I'll keep this all in mind moving forward, though, and I hope we'll get another chance to impress someday. Take care, Deb Gallington, Owner More

This unprepossessing spot in downtown La Porte is a perfect fit for this quaint Main Street setting. The drinks (beers, wines, and the harder stuff) are what you expect and the food would be considered competitive in any small town. The Pullman feel of this long and narrow spot creates lots of elbow rubbing but after a couple, no one... More

One of the nicer places in our area with good quality food. Their wine marinated burger is probably one of the best burgers I have ever eaten.

Wow! What a pleasant surprise to find a place like this La Porte. These days you gotta go Downtown to find modern, fusion based cuisine. La Porte is a perfect place for those who work near Baytown or near the La Porte area and want something quick, local and delicious before heading home. I came here with a colleague after... More

This is an interesting restaurant. We go there for lunch. It probably has a different feel at night. Set up for 2 or 4 person dining. The owner appears to be working through the day. The chef tries to put a spin on sandwiches and pasta dishes. In an area with Mexican and bbq joints, this is a refreshing option.
