    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.

    This was NOT one of our best times at Porter & Luke's - too much nose and service was NOT good this time - we had 6 of us and it was over one hour before we receive out dinners - food was good - hope this was a one time thing and we will return again and hope things improve Ronald

    Over crowded, long wait for food, under staffed. Took 45 minutes to get our order, a salad and veal parmesan. Draft beer turned cloudy, crab meat was warm. Used to be good their standards have fallen.

    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.

    Easter Sunday. Service was great, and food was tasty. The menu advertised Chantilly Cheesecake, but what was served was plain Chantilly cake. It was delicious, but it wasn’t cheesecake. I think the dining experience would improve by dimming the lights and improving the ambiance. It feels like a cafeteria in there. Great food, though!

    Porter & Luke's is one of my all time FAVORITE restaurants. The servers are always friendly, smiling, and efficient! They have a varied menu and everyone is always happy with the selections. They have daily specials and even serve breakfast on Sunday, which is delicious! This is our favorite go-to spot for all occasions and lunch or dinner with our favorite people!

    There was a large table in the middle of the restaurant that was EXTREMELY loud and obnoxious! They were laughing and yelling at each throughout dinner and made it impossible to hear ourselves talk during our dining. Someone should have told them to be courteous and quiet down or put these obnoxious people in a private room. We couldn’t wait to leave and will not return any time soon. This was the second time this has happened at the same restaurant. Starting to be a pattern now…

    In town for a conference. Found the restaurant on Open Table with great reviews. We had a wonderful server, Michelle, and we all loved our meals. Eggplant Sophie, Pecan Crusted Catfish, Turtle Soup, Fried Catfish and Fish of the Day. We had bread pudding for dessert. Everything was delicious and the staff was friendly and attentive even though they were very busy. Worth the 10 minute drive from Downtown.

    Table not ready for 25 minutes after reservation. Sat at the bar and had a fantastic cocktail while e we waited. Wait staff in restaurant appeared harried, although our waiter was nice. Ordered and received food in timely manner, food was average. I had fried soft shell crab over pasta, son had eggplant with shrimp over pasta. Husband had pecan crusted fish.

    I had never heard of this place until we received a gift card. It's an unpretentious spot in a strip mall. We got the fried eggplant and crab dip appetizers, grilled redfish and pecan crusted catfish. Everything was done perfectly and delicious. Service was attentive and prices are reasonable. A great find.
