The Porch Restaurant & Bar - Sacramento Ratings and Reviews

It was my birthday, and my husband, my mother and I, were treated like royalty. I recommend this to anyone for special occasions or even a night out. They even gave me a special printed menu with my name and the date, as a momento. The food was excellent, it even gave us a little taste New Orleans. The server couldn't have been more accommodating, with our special dietary needs. I thought the food was a little pricey, until I discovered there was ample enough left for another delightful indulgence, the next day...or a midnight romp!

Food was delicious . Would appreciate knowing how big the dinner plates are ahead of time. Waitress tried to keep us informed about so many things that we felt remembering a take home bag was too hard to remember.

I was overall happy with my meal--the fried green tomatoes were delicious, thick and crunchy, but still light. The biscuit egg and potato breakfast was perfectly cooked. However...my waitress (apparently new) did not write down my order and then came back ten or so minutes later to ask what I had ordered. I was also disappointed with the quality of the mimosa--watery and blah. Not once during my meal was I asked if I wanted a second mimosa, or something else to drink. Disappointing.

We were looking for a new place for brunch that everyone in our group would like. The Porch was perfect!! Great menu selection, fun food and drinks. Definitely coming back!!
Service was awesome - fun server who interacted with our group perfectly. Accommodated our request for multiple tickets without hesitation. Food was served hot and just as described!

The food here at The Porch is excellent. There was a good balance of flavors in my Shrimp and Grits. We had the appetizer of corn bread which was amazing. The restaurant is a little noisy but the food and service (Nick was great!) outweighs the noise level.

I frequent The Porch as often as possible. The food is OUTSTANDING. On this particular occasion the service was extremely poor. Our table had to ask several of the wait staff, who were more than happy to oblige our requests for drinks, location of our food, location of our server, and an oddity of an under cooked dessert that was merrily reheated and not returned to our table for approximently 20 minutes. I even asked if we could have the lovely waitress we had just the weekend before if she could be our waitress.

The service was excellent. I would make a reservation though because it fills up quickly espescially brunch. This a farm to fork restaurant the menu changes daily. The servings are big and my family really like their meals. We sat out on the porch which was nice but the view is an apartment We will go back again.

We went for Fathers' Day because it has my husband's favorite fried chicken of all the restaurants in the area. Half of it always goes home. I ordered the fried green tomatoes which comes with a hard-boiled egg and bacon strip. Servings of everything tend to be on the generous side and I'm not a big eater. Both were good. In general, low-country Southern cuisine food choices are good, although heavy on the fried/spicy/salty food if that's not your preference. Prices tend to be on the high-moderate side, partly because of the large servings. Would rather have choices of smaller servings because many of the dishes wouldn't do well as leftovers. Good draft beer choices. Good service. Nice choice when we're looking for something a little different.

We loved sitting on the porch! The crab eggs benedict was to die for. It was also nice to see some vegan options, albeit the vegan sour cream was a bit odd. Hopefully one day you will make grits using butter instead of lard for us non-pork eaters.
Overall, it was an exceptional experience!

We had a lovely dinner at The Porch to celebrate our friend's birthday. They called me the day before to ask if it was for an occasion and asked for the birthday girl's name. We were so surprised to see a birthday greeting for her on our menus when we arrived. It was a very sweet gesture. All the food and drink was delicious! We ordered the Spring in Sac punch bowl which was very refreshing. The cornbread and cajun fried beets were amazing and we loved our Shrimp and Grits and BBQ Pork Belly. I would definitely come back to this restaurant and highly recommend it.

Delicious spinach salad with grilled shrimp. Shared a mac n cheese and grilled green tomatoes, which were good. A nice dining experience outdoors. Server brought a chipped bottle of wine which she refused to serve. An overall nice dinner, what made it nice was that the four of us could talk and be heard outside.
Extra Effort on our Extra Special Day
The Porch went above and beyond on my daughters graduation. They surprised us with custom menus with a congratulations on the day. The food was excellent, especially the skillet cornbread and pulled pork sandwich. We also enjoyed the Blueberry Lemondade and Ginger Beer from River City Brewery. Everyone enjoyed the food and celebration made special by the staff.

A town jewel, the porch has simply amazed me. Best southern food I've had in a long time outside of my kitchen. First time I took my boyfriend for his birthday and we fell in love. We live an hour away and always seem to make a this our weekly ritual.
Elegant Southern Hospitality
The Porch offers upscale, modernized southern food. Excellent fried chicken, Gouda grits, and other various treats. Their cocktails are to die for! The servers are friendly and knowledgeable. The atmosphere is classy yet rustic. Overall a fantastic establishment.
Mid Town Delight
This was my first time to this restaurant - my vegan friend chose it. We were greeted by our delightful server Shelly who was very helpful in navigating the menu. She provided excellent service throughout the meal. She was also very humorous and entertaining. Her assistant Nick was eager, kind, and attentive; they were a great team. The decor is beautiful and tasteful.
The only disappointment is the wine list. There are few options and none to my liking. They have a huge list of specialty cocktails so you won't be disappointed with the offerings. I reviewed the wine list on line before our meal so came prepared with my own wine from home.
The food was well prepared and eye pleasing. Shelly invited us to return for brunch the next day. Although that time did not work for me, I know I'll be returning soon and I know who I'll request for my server.
Not worth the wait
had a party of 10 which I made reservations for and was even called and confirmed the day of, so they knew we were coming yet there was confusion over seating, they had two tables next to each other as opposed to one long table. I spoke with the host regarding and again to a wait staffer who tried to give away one of the tables - not awesome, but okay. We had 3 children dining with us, which was why we made reservations so they could eat at a reasonable time, yet we weren't served our meal until an hour and a half after we were seated. At another point we waited more than 20 minutes for drinks. Another large party inside was blamed, yet if you know you have multiple large parties coming in, staff for it. It was beyond ridiculous!!

We had a family group, 4 generations, celebrating my graduation from City College, my daughter's engagement, and my dad's birthday. The service was exceptional and the food was delicious! My 8-month-old grandson ate the grits off my husband's plate and when asked if we could get a little for him the waiter brought him his own little portion along with a tiny espresso spoon to feed him with. We felt very well cared for and had a lovely time.
