(UPDATED 9/18/2018) Description and review of dinner at The Porch Restaurant & Bar, a restaurant in Midtown Sacramento featuring Southern comfort food.
I have walked past The Porch Restaurant & Bar at various times on weekends when heading to the Midtown Farmers Market. Each time I did, I noted that it appears to be a popular weekend brunch spot.
I was meeting a friend for dinner, and looking forward to checking it out. Entering the restaurant I was surprised at how large it is inside. The interior is very attractive, with an abundance of warm wood. I especially liked that the bar and dining room was separated by partial wood panel walls providing seated diners more privacy than would a wide open space.
The Porch Restaurant & Bar specializes in farm-to-fork Southern cooking – also known as “comfort” food. Our waitress was warm, welcoming and attentive bringing to mind the term “Southern hospitality”.

My friend opted for the shrimp and grits (gulf shrimp, Porch BBQ, creamy Gouda grits, Zoe’s bacon, diced tomatoes, green onions). The dish received a rave review – but unfortunately she dug into her meal before I could take a photo.
When I saw that the BBQ pork sandwich was done Carolina-style (Carolina BBQ-pulled pork, sesame bun, mayo, smoked Gouda, apple-walnut slaw on the side) I immediately knew what I was going to order. Sandwiches at The Porch Restaurant & Bar also come with hand-cut fries and house-made catsup. It was all delicious.
While the menu changes daily, I anticipate that a number of menu items that piqued my interest will reappear so I do plan to return to The Porch Restaurant & Bar – perhaps next time to sit outside on the patio on a summer morning to enjoy brunch.
