I love it when your travelling looking for gems in a 12 oz. pour. The staff (ESP) Ty sealed the impression. I appreciated the attentive focus and the farewell of "thanks for drinking the good stuff" wish I lived closer so I could try the food

I finally made it to the Porter, after wanting to visit for some time. The beer list and tap list are excellent. They have samplers of similar types of brews, which is a great idea and value. I had the wild sampler, which included Brett & I, La Folie, and BA Ripa. Great concept, especially when itís hard to make a final decision. The food was excellent as well. I had the Rueben, and it was one of the best Iíve ever had. Came with fries that were also really good. If I lived in the area, I would definitely return. Great bar.

The interior is tiny, but the service is awesome and the selection is FANTASTIC--lots of beers weíve never seen before at our usual haunts like the Brickstore and Bookhouse (both of which I also love). Food is interesting, eclectic and well-executed. Service is awesome. Only complaint is the bathrooms--go elsewhere if possible.

Right amidst the shops and bars at the Little Five Points intersection. Dark with a long bar on entrance. Larger seating area in the back behind the bar with dark wood booths and furniture and brick walls. The food is top-notch - with the specials generally being my favorites (though the regular menu items include a number of great dishes - including hush puppies, a great reuben sandwich, great burger, and a great shrimp sandwich). The beer selection is always nice and sometimes features some exotic and/or harder-to-find brews. Service is great and very friendly as well (we take our kids, and one of the waitresses that serves us more often than not recognizes the kids and always talks to Will (the older of our kids - the one that is old enough to actually converse with). Great place.

This is my local bar and I love it. The selection is very good and changes often, they usually have a cask ale on, the glassware is always perfect and the food is excellent- the french fries are the best in town. Rivals the Brick Store for the best bar in Atlanta.

This place is great. My girlfriend and I went here two nights in a row to try as much as we could. Molly is the best, and in fact everyone we talked to was very nice and very knowledgeable. Definitely one of the better beer selections Iíve seen and great food to boot. Love the decorations with all the old luggage. You must visit the Porter when you are in Atlanta.

This bar is awesome and ridiculously close to my buddyís apartment. The ambiance is very much like the Brick Store or Trappeze. It looks like the inside of a castle or some other ancient structure. Candles provided most of the light. Service was efficient, engaging, and knowledgable. I didnít get to eat on this visit, but I will next time. The tap list is extensive without being so large rotation never occurs. As with most places in GA, the beer prices are fantastic, especially for the draft offerings. I canít wait to go back!

The Porter is ridiculously good. The food is beyond stellar. The beer selection rotates and is nearly incomparable in the region. The Porter has surpassed the Brick Store in beer selection, food options, and most importantly, the ability to get inside and order a beer without being suffocated in a sea of bodies. Thatís not a knock against the Brick Store, I still love the place, itís just that I canít think of higher praise than saying I actually prefer a place in Atlanta over the Brick Store.

This place reminds me of a Belgian pub, with a narrow dark interior dominated by an oversize bar. The beer menu is fantastic, with a huge list of both tap and bottle offerings. The food is spiffed up pub fare and was much better than I expected based on the space. Chef Nick is extremely gifted. His wife Molly personally came to the table to talk beer - she doesnít look old enough to know that much! Overall it was a fantastic evening - one that will be repeated in the very near future!

Absolutely the best gastropub in the city of Atlanta and an amazing addition to L5P. Taps change frequently and thereís usually a cask going. The regular menu is quite good but the frequently changing specials are almost always a pleasant surprise. I usually sit at the bar so my service experience may be different than the tables in the back.

This is a great little "hole in the wall" pub in the middle of Atlantaís Little Five Points. Run by a young couple, service is fantastic and the food even better. They generally run close to 30 beers on tap and a hundred or so in the bottle, so not a huge selection. But the beers they DO have are many of the best. Oh, and did I mention the food? You donít have to go anywhere else for a night of great beer and dining!
