Editorial review from Citysearch 8/28/2015

Went into this bar before a U2 concert. Was reasonably easy to get a table when other places had an hour wait. Beer selection is not exhaustive but carefully selected. Probably 10 on tap and 20 bottled. Have a few harpoons and a dogfishhead on tap.\r \r Ordered Cajun chicken spinach salad (was good) and Cajun tuna tacos (too spicy). I think food wise it is safer to stick with burgers.\r \r Service is friendly and fast. Recommend for a quick food grab before going to the Garden. more

Hidden Gem 1/24/2011

I didn't think there were any surprises left in the Boston bar scene, but Porter's proved me wrong. With the exposed brick and high ceiling, it has a charming and relaxing atmosphere. The food is great pub food--another surprise. I had the good luck to be there on a Tuesday night when the trivia challenge is held. The MC is outstanding, and he plays great music while the teams are mulling their answers. This was not generic trivia. It covered a lot of ground, and I was totally humbled. Even when the place is crowded with pregame customers, it stays civilized, and the wait staff is attentive, friendly, and do a great job without being intrusive. more

fun place 8/13/2008

Porter's Bar & Grill is such a fun place to kick back and enjoy yourself. I've met clients and colleagues alike there for drinks and appetizers. The people watching there is the best! more

Highly recommended for FleetCenter events 1/19/2006

I attend many FleetCenter events and have tried a lot of different places. Porter's is undoubtedly one of the best. The service was prompt and affable, leaving us in a good mood and plenty of time before tipoff. The food was excellent for the price and expectations. Chicken tenders were made from tender, moist breast meat and nicely breaded with a good sauce. The pulled pork sandwich was very good. The biggest winner was the chicken and ribs combo. Both were melt-off-the-bone delicious. The bar is friendly, well-lighted and has fairly high ceilings for this area. The bartenders are friendly, knowledgeable and let you try some of the unique beers before buying. Also, Porter's is in some of the iDine programs, making it an even better value. Pros: Excellent food, Fast/friendly service more

Good Clean Fun 12/13/2005

Porter's offers a nice, bright bar atmosphere in this somewhat up and coming neighborhood. I visited because I was staying at the Onyx Hotel next stoor and was pleasantly surprised by the helpful staff and decent food and prices. Recommended. Pros: Good Staff, Bright, Good Sports Bar more
