My friend and I had dinner on a Saturday night. The restaurant wasn't that busy, which was a blessing. The bartenders suggested the vodka cucumber cocktail. Prefect for a warm summer night. We ordered the Fried Green tomatoes, Skillet Mac and cheese, shrimp & grits and the Buttermilk Fried chicken. All were delicious!

This was the second time I had dined at The Porch and I didn't leave disappointed. The food is amazing and the customer service was great. They even went a step further by customizing the menu to say happy birthday to my sister! I definitely recommend this restaurant!

Service was super slow. Our young lady was not very attentive and talked too much about nothing instead of getting what we ordered. I will not stop coming because everything else is ALWAYS great but I will ask for another server if I see her again.

I was very pleased with everything at The Porch. It was a birthday brunch and the birthday girl was pleased ...and was too.
Food was wonderful and we want to come back again.
We live in Yuba City so coming to Sac is a treat and this was for us.

This is a prize find. Incredible seasonal, local food cooked into low-country southern fare. So glad we found this place. Great beer, great meal, great services. There are plenty of options for vegetarians/vegans, too, and the fries are some of the best.

I write this review with some trepidation. We have been to The Porch three times, the first two times were excellent, this time bordered on poor. The menu was woefully limited. No steaks, closest short ribs, no (swimming) fish, closest scallops. It was so sad we settled on spaghetti (really!!!) and squash nachos. The spaghetti was lackluster, lacking much flavor and the squash nachos were good but mostly chips and not near enough squash, come on. how much is squash! Service was good but not great. We noted it was Saturday night and several empty tables, we hope this formerly great restaurant returns. The meal was inexpensive, but that wasn't our goal.

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.
