The food is outstanding. I highly recommend one of their sandwiches or specialty dishes. Whatever you choose you cannot go wrong in this menu. As for the beer selection with over 60 beers to choose from on their mug list and another 12 beers on tap I'm sure you will find an old favorite or something new to love. Irish flair meets craft beer!

As you enter there is a small bar directly in front of you to the left and a small seating/stage area to the right. Kind of small with only 1 bathroom I believe. There was a band playing which was kind of cool but was a little loud and made it hard to hurt.
The tap offerings are small, around a dozen but are priced quite fairly but the bottle list was large, unfortunately priced not too reasonabley.
I have been here several times and it is never super crowded. The service is really always quite spotty to be honest. I don't like it when the bartenders seem like they have something better to do then serve you beer which I'm pretty sure is there job.
Overall I would rather go elsewhere for my craft beer in the area.

Went here on Cinco de Mayo with a group of friends. We sat there as a group and each bought beers off of their 60+ beer list to get a team mug. The place is quaint, a little old fashion looking. The seating is a little tight but overall it's not too bad. The line for the bathroom can get pretty long since it's a 1 person at a time kind of thing. The service was pretty good since we had a large group they needed to keep telling us to keep our voices down over dinner hour. The beers kept coming though no matter how loud we got which was nice. The selection of beers is pretty good, nothing too out of the ordinary in today's market but someone just getting into the craft movement this would be a fine place to start. I didn't order any food while I was there but for the people who did it looked fantastic. I ended up having several rounds and the tap wasn't all that much, I'd say that this place is pretty good. Not sure how often I'll get back there but I would stop in if the mood struck me.

Stopped by this place on my way from Jersey to Pittsburgh. They have a decent tap selection but a better bottle selection. The bottles are a bit pricey, but they're probably the same price as anywhere else.
They have a house brew called Porters ESB iirc, its Scarlet Lady ESB, and its mad good.
The food is by far, top level, when it comes to bar food.
The bartender was very friendly and engaging, he wasn't too knowledgeable in beer, but he knew what the good stuff was and how to guide you in your selection. If I didn't have to drive 5 more hours I would've had more beers, since they had a good selection on tap that day. Oh well next time.
Its a very chill atmosphere and have free wireless, and I'd go there again.

As you enter Porter's there is a small bar directly in front of you and there is a small dining room next to this. All in all a comfortable atmosphere. I started with a Harpoon IPA and finished with a Left Hand Sawtooth Ale. The tap offerings are small, 10 as I remember, but the bottle list was large.
I was there on a Wed. eve,early and there were police everywhere. A police car sat in front of the pub the whole time I was there. Not exactly conducive to having a few pints.
Because of this and also I was hungry I had a cup of the chili, which was great and a crab cake, also great.

Like a neighborhood type bar feel. Customers & staff very friendly. Staff very knowledgeable regarding beer. About 8 micro brews & good commercial beers on tap. 100's of bottles to choose from, with a decent beer menu to guide selection. Joined their mug club (free), need to drink 60 listed beers to get your mug. Scratched Dilerium, Motor Oil, & Raison D'etra off the list.
Wife had Lindemans Peche, Maudite, & something else.
Food was good, decent portions & excellent quality & value. Good selection of menu items at a variety of price points. Basic pub type fair to more gourmet type offerings.
Definately will go back, & would recommend to others.

This is my top beer bar in the Lehigh Valley. Last time I went they had Nugget Nectar and Old Rasputin on tap as well as some other classic greats. They have a mug club which can compete with any pub in the nation in terms of variety. They also have a selection of bombers which even includes Double Bastard. Their mug club beer list includes the best from Rochefort and Westmalle as well as locals including Troegs, Victory, and even the best from Bells and Founders. All around great atmosphere, knowledgeable managers and wait staff, and amazing food (even my girlfriend loves their food). Overall, the best pub in the Lehigh Valley to try local greats on tap and in bottle as well as exports.

One of my favorite stomping grounds in the Lehigh Valley, always a great place to try a new brew and have a nice meal.
A: Lovely Irish/Victorian style pub, immediately encountered the bar on my left and dining on my right. Nice, original brick and stone walls surround you.
Q: Very nice and clean.
S: Wait staff is always very nice and corteous and the place is small enough that you really get an intimate feel.
S: About 10 brews on tap, 4 of which were micros. About 30 bottles to choose from. Nice ones too. They had delirium noel for the holiday.
F: Sandwiches and appetizers are always excellent and very filling.
V: Very reasonable for the quality of food and brews being served.

Stopped into Porter's to have a few with a friend from the Easton area one day, and was very favorably impressed. They had a limited selection on tap, but about 60 different beers in bottles. I was able to have an Old Rasputin on tap, which was a nice opportunity here on the east coast. Was able to sample a few more before we left. This is truly an American Pub. Nothing fancy just a nice homey feel. The bartender was great, and the music was pretty decent. A very nice beer sampling environment. I would suggest you drop by if you happen to be in Easton.

This Place has got to be one of the best places in the area! The selection of beers is one of the best with with about 10 taps(6 of them changing regularly) and 60 to 70 bottles.
The food is one of the best kept secrets in the lehigh valley. The head chef, Jermey, Is really something special. The menu is great and the specials each night are well thought out and always top notch!
If you are in the area I suggest that you stop in and have a drink and something to eat. You'll be glad you did.
