While the Knox Henderson area is full of great restaurants and bars, I couldn’t recommend a visit to the Porch more. This americana gastropub was the perfect spot for my latest happy hour out. From the friendly service to the laid back atmosphere, it was perfect for a night out with friends or even a date night.
When you drive up to The Porch, you may be concerned with the street parking options, but no need to worry — there is plenty of lot parking in the back. The front of the restaurant offers street views of Henderson Avenue and patio seating for a cool evening. Since it has been so hot in Dallas lately, we opted for seating inside. There were a lot of options, from high tops to booths and even bar seating. Since we just came for drinks, we saddled up to the bar and our server was quick to assist us.
The Porch offers traditional beer and wine options in addition to fun cocktails and a full service bar. I wanted to try something new and went for their “Sage Advice”. This drink tasted just as great as it looked, topped with a garnish of fresh blueberries. The drink reminded me of a Moscow Mule with a tart ginger beer, but I loved the fruit addition of blueberries to make it a sweet and fresh option.
The atmosphere of the entire restaurant was great! The music wasn’t too loud and there was plenty of room to enjoy company on a weekday night. If you are looking to catch a game here, they offer plenty of TVs and large booths perfect for a night out.
While we skipped out on food this visit, they did offer some delicious sounding items like their chicken fried steak served with mashed potatoes, green beans and gravy or their salmon burger with your side of choice. The experience was definitely upscale and The Porch is a restaurant that I will return to soon!
