    It was very cold in the dining room. All the diners kept their jackets and coats on to eat. The food was good but several items were cold when served (fries, pasts with crawfish sauce). The service was good, the waiter was friendly and attentive. This was our third time dining here. I probably wouldn’t recommend moving forward because of the ambiance and temperature of the dining room.

    It was very loud and cold in the restaurant. Everyone kept their coats/jackets on. The grilled fish of the day was great but they should not be serving turtle soup it’s just not right, way to bland! Also we had the wrong dishes brought out to us at least three times but overall wait time for food was not bad.

    Service was very good. Crab dip appetizer was exceptional. Eggplant entree was so-so, rather bland and with microscopic crawfish and shrimp. The ambiance in thus restaurant is not unlike a hospital waiting room. Bare walls, bright lights, noisy-not really a pleasant atmosphere for dining. It has potential, but there are too many other places to eat that much better for the money.

    We've eaten here several times and always enjoy the experience. Sometimes it's a bit too loud for my ears but the place is nice and the food is very good. We always get a couple of appetizers and usually try the fish entrees. We'll be going back often.

    Nice, clean, safe place. Interesting menu, usually busy, and probably understaffed but still delivers a good meal at a good price. We’ve been several times, this time we went early hoping it would be quieter and it was. We’ll be going back.

    This is a nice place. I gave the food 3 stars because the fried eggplant was quite salty. I did order the fried chicken and it needed seasoning. Other than that, I would recommend

    Food was great. Lots if options and did not take long from ordering. Staff was attentive, almost overly. Felt a bit like they were rushing us but the place was not full. Ambiance is a bit basic, not much personality. Lights are quite bright. The decor could use some warmth. Overall pleasant.

    Had dinner with some friends on a Monday night. We split two orders of the triple wedge salad as a first course. It was delicious! I ordered the eggplant cups with shrimp over Angel hair pasta. Excellent. Others at the table ordered the flatbread and veal Parmesan. Everything was very good. The kitchen split orders for us in the kitchen, that was very nice. We were able to eat and visit without being rushed. That was greatly appreciated

    Server was very nice. Gumbo tasted like water and had no seasoning. Turtle soup was served at room temperature at best. Ordered two wedge salads and received one so we shared it. The clientele appeared to be from a retirement home. So much so that there was a rep there doing a dinner in the back room from a company that makes stretchers etc..

    I was visiting from out of town and was having trouble finding a spot with an open reservation at a reasonable time of day when I happened upon Porter & Luke's. It's a nice place to grab a bite in a pinch and represents a good value. I ordered fried trout which was a special for the day. It came out a little too quickly and could've been warmer. That being said, the food was flavorful and reasonably priced. The service was very good with a fast and attentive staff. Ambiance is so so at best.

    P&L was woefully ill-prepared for the Mother's Day crowd, even though we all had reservations. By the time we were seated half of the "special" menu was unavailable. And when I tried to order something from the regular menu, i.e., softshell crabs, I was told they were all out, even though said crabs made their appearance at tables within eyesight of mine. That would be two (2) tables within my sight. My dish was served luke-warm, and there was entirely too much chili powder in my red gravy.

    Our waitress was fantastic. The 3 stars is because we weren't able to order any of the items we went there for; our server informed us they were out of both. This was a real disappointment as it was a speical Mother's Day outing and I came from out of town. No lobster, no risotto, no soup we wanted, or dessert. The menu was abbreviated to beging with so basically very few choices left. Pretty poor planning for such a busy day. We won't be returning.
