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!

wonderful addition to Atlantaís beer scene... although some elements are a direct rip off of The Brick Store in Decatur, such as the beer menu style and certain design elements, The Porter can certainly hold its own. I personally think the beer selection at The Porter outweighs that of The Brick Store, unless you were talking strictly Belgian Ales. The Porterís beer list is long, well rounded and special.... as well as fairly priced. There are some really good deals on some beers here. The setting is very rustic and appealing... dark woods, exposed brick walls... however it is quite narrow, so I imagine it could get very cramped at night. The food is wonderful... probably the best fries Iíve had, period. Wonderful vegetarian black beer burger.... quite gourmet... not your typical pub/bar food. and again well priced. great service when we were there (although it was a weekday - so not sure how it is when crowded).... Iíll be back again and again....

I’ve been here twice now- first time with a large group of 10+. Service at first was horrible; with a group that large, it’s wise to come back as much as possible to feed our liquid diet- luckly the sous chef took over and made our evening perfect- fast drinks and great knowledge. My second visit didn’t go over so well. We were told a half an hour wait that turned into an hour. Once we finally got seated, we immediately ordered drinks and apps since it was a very busy night. Eventually our drinks came out but never any apps. A half an hour went by and we finally gave up and walked out. I was really looking forward to their entrees but this point we were starving. They definitely need to work on a better staff or this won’t last long. I love the beer selection and heard good things about the food but a lot needs to be here.

Went on night of soft opening 9/7/08. They were still waiting on their full selection of beers and food, but what I had was excellent. In a quaint historic building in Little 5 Points area. The bartenders were both extremely knowledgeable about beer and had worked for high-end beer before. Food ranges the gamut from burgers to hangar steak and mussels. The best I have had in quite some time. The beers and food seemed to be on par or slightly less expensive than other places in town. This new destination should not be missed by anyone living in or visiting Atlanta!!
