Porterhouse introduced the art of dry aging in 2013 and the restaurant's meat locker is visibly located upon entry. Porterhouse features an inclusive menu with dry-aged and grass-fed Midwest beef, fresh seafood, vegetarian options, and seasonal produce and ingredients, all laced with the philosophy that house-made is the only way. French influences are felt throughout the menu with house-made stocks, sauces, and desserts, in addition to tableside experiences such as Bananas Foster.

To accompany your steak, our Wine List celebrates the renowned wines of Napa Valley, Willamette Valley, France and Italy. In addition to our steak and chop offerings, our Chef provides for a daily selection of fresh fish and seafood. High ceilings, subdued lighting, and original film posters and billboards from the Golden Age of Hollywood set the inviting mood. Set in a historic bank building, on the corner of 2nd and B Street, Porterhouse provides unparalleled service as the team maintains a warm, familiar approach with the restaurant’s inviting atmosphere.

Whether you are having a romantic dinner, entertaining some friends and family, having a business meeting, or hosting a private party, we will provide you with the ideal setting for your next outing.
