I have been to the Porter twice in the past ten days. The first time I went was in the early afternoon and I sat at the bar. The bartender was indeed very knowledgeable and recommended several brews (Wolover Organic IPA, Innis & Gunn) that I had never tried before. We ate the food and left the place feeling excited about recommending the Porter to our friends.

Well, the day after Christmas, I took my wife and daughter (who lives Downtown) to the Porter for lunch and it wasn't the same. We all were disappointed with our food, and the service was a bit slow even though it wasn't crowded. We immediately felt we would have been better off sitting at the bar.

This establishment is fine if you are downtown and want to enjoy a fine beer. It is not worth the drive if you live in the suburbs in my opinion.

Unbelievable selection of beer. Great atmosphere. Food is excellent. Service can be slow at times, but that's because this place is always super busy. I was able to find an oak aged 15th anniversary Great Divide double IPA, which was one of the best beers I've ever had ( well worth the $30 price tag).

Definitely staffed by beer lovers…knowledgeable and will talk beer. Food is a little overrated as far as I am concerned, although I appreciate the small plate efforts and local flavors. Go here for the beer and you will not be disappointed.

Service was a little rushed…I got the feeling we weren't quite cool enough for the server. Hint: don't blow off old fat guys dining with their wife, to hang with your friends…we probably tip better.

I would recommend the bar versus tables, especially if you are trying the beers. I will go back, and I would recommend it because small restaurants need to see our business, and this one is on the right track. The beer options alone should keep most hop head and dark beer lovers happy.

Visited on a Wednesday night. Very crowded for dinner but thinned out as the night went. Closes a little early (i.e. we were getting last call at 11:45)

My go to beer bar in Atlanta. No reason to go any place else.

A - Looks like a craft beer bar. Has patrons that are focused on and like to talk beer. - 4.75

Q - No reason to believe quality is anything for high. Proper glasses used. Cellar may not be as cool as needed (see below). 4.5

S - Good service. Happy staff. Bartender (Rebecca) knew her stuff, though at times she was absent from her post. Kimi showed me the cellar/private party room Very nice but as I said maybe not the proper temperature for cellaring. 4.25

S - Excellent selection. Look at the website for 40+ taps and extensive list of bottles and vintages. Plenty of hard to find beers. - 4.75

F - I had the burger and fries. The pickles on the burger were great as were the fries. Hushpuppies were good as well. 4.25

V - Can be very good even on bottles beer - $$
