This past Sunday was my Dad's birthday and we went to Porterhouse our favorite place to celebrate. First we had Saganaki and BBQ shrimp as appetizers. Then I had Filet and Jumbo Shrimp, and I know what you might be thinking to much shrimp. But it was out of this world!!! The shrimp was cooked to perfection. My dad had the Chicken Asiago which he always gets. My mom's favorite is the Almond Crusted Whitefish and as a side she had this time a baked potato, you can have it toped with bacon and sour cream but she really doesn't care she would it two but there just to big. My boyfriend had the Hickory Smoked Baby Back Ribs and they were just to die for. We are planning on going back for Thanksgiving as last year. Great place to spend time with family.

This place is a dirty hole in the wall in the middle of nowhere. The restaurant needs major remodeling, or just be completely demolished! Carpets have 2 inches of dust that just flies up on your dishes when you walk. We came in around 8pm and were one of the last groups left before they closed (around 10pm). At around 9:30pm we were almost being chased out by the owners (who just sat there next to us, speaking whatever language, and giving us looks like they had somewhere to be.)
NOW TO THE FOOD!
If you like eating paper, then you will love this place!!!
I have never eaten steak that was this HORRIBLE, and the seafood???? It tasted like it was reboiled in water because all you could taste was water... No flavor at all!!!
Deserts???? now this was the only thing with flavor...If you like molding cake that is!
So I want to thank the people at Porterhouse for not only making this place a filthy mess, but also for the hours of voming after consuming their rotten cuisine!!!
Will never go back and will gladly tell anyone to stayaway from this overrated shack!!! The best thing this restaurant can do for themselves is to close down!!!

Food was bland, and asked for the ""special"" which was surf and turf (lobster and steak). Note that priced separately the steak and lobster were about $25 each. Tried asking the server for the price of the special. She said don't worry, its a good deal..... Price came out to $90 per person for the ""special."" Now I know that special doesn't mean a cheaper price, but to up-charge the price of something like that was preposterous. Tried talking to the manager and was told that We had to pay, so we did. But we will never come back and want everyone to know that Not only was the food just OK, the service was terrible and NO ONE in the restaurant has any customer service!!!

We have not been to the new Porterhouse Steak house in Burr Ridge. As a first time customer I would offer a word of advice to ask prices of specials. The wait staff didn't offer a price when the specials were read. I had thought to order a different cut of meat except when I was offered a special my thoughts were exactly that a special. But I guess this doesn't mean a good price. A $50 piece of meat 1/4 the size of a strip steak is not worth the price. A good lesson learned.

Start out with the Shrimp DeJonghe or the Calamari - Saganaki is also fantastic. Lunch or dinner. Steaks are beyond compare. Try the ""Steak Renee."" Seafood? They got that -- I went for the Seafood Cioppino. It's got shrijmp, clams, clalamari and fish with some kind of mushrooms and peppers. But, then again, the Grouper or Whitefish is always a good bet. Good wine list. Staff willing and able - service is good. I haven't gotten into the Lobster or Crab yet. It has to be just as good. MapQuest the place. It's worth it.

U just can't help the feeling of at some point in time you have been there before. Very homely feeling and excellent food. This restaurant must have been pulled straight out of a movie.......just an exquisite character. I had the prime rib blackened, it literally melted in my mouth.
