So I was there on Friday night and sat in the back dinning area. Service was terrible the servers are to worried about what everyone else is doing that they couldn't do their job. The seafood buffet was very upsetting nothing on it that I couldn't fix for cheap at home. Never coming back

while visiting from out of town my wife and i tried your restaurant and was very disappointed. your restaurant is beautiful and the food was okay but some of the servers are terrible. as a restaurant manager myself i would never let my servers act the way some of these servers was acting. please get some training for some of your servers. i say some because i watched the other servers and they were great. to the restaurant owner you should never have a server fussing about how many tables they are getting because when customers hear that we feel as if we are a bother to them....will be back in a month or so to visit again and i will try it one more time hope there is some improvement in some of the servers performance especially if they wait on me again this was from a visit on Saturday janurary 26th

You guys got me afraid to eat there; don't want to take the chance of getting food posion let alone getting it so far from home. But the comments got me curious about wanting to go watch the entertainment of the Hills brothers and the staff. Next time I come up to visit my cuz's I am going stop by, with my Mom, and see what these Hill Brothers are up too.

I was there to eat this past weekend. Service was amazing she was so friendly and did her job very well. After reading the comments on the food I chose to only get the salad bar salad was great but the soup was a joke. Please get some real soup in there and stop throwing all of your leftovers in a pot and calling it soup

I ate dinner at porky's this evening. I know it was my last. I was given it a third and final chance but I will not go back anymore. The waitress was nice and helpful and done her job properly as should be done. Food on the bar was not at temps. Chicken was cold and dried out. Rolls brought to the table cold and hard like they had laid out all day. Green beans straight out of the can with what appeared to be vegetable oil floating on top. Meatloaf was horrible under done all you could taste was bread crumbs no texture at all. Salad bar looked okay. Brown gravy was so thick and lumpy turned your stomach looking at it. Steaks had laid in water and was tough and tasteless. Ribs was way under cooked. Corn dried out. Cornbread to hard to cut with knife. I sent more food back than I consumed which is bad. I'm not sure who's old or new but to me the food and quality of the food is the same as the old steak house. I wish them all the best but does not look good for a long term business. Sad because it has the potential with the right cooks could boom. It ends up costing a little over 13 dollars for a dinner buffet and drink which people would not mind paying if they could enjoy the meal.

Irst of all I am Dennis's wife.. So let me get the story straight... Yes we did go to Porky's to eat, And yes the beef tips were spoiled, and yes they brought me some more which were spoiled also, the rolls were cold and not cooked completely through. My baked potato was very good. We were only charged for the plate that Dennis got. they did not charge me for nothing that I had. and Dennis did not even go to the bathroom so there fore he did not hear anyone say anything at all.. That's the real story... The truth will set you free!!member that before you comment on anything! Now go to Porky's and see for yourself...
Not coming back

Does the owner even know what goes on in this place? My family and I came in to eat and will never be back. My service was great the food was terrible but what was really a turn off for us was listening to another server talk about her bad luck with the cops. Not a good image to give your customers.

Every thing said on here from post one to thirty five is the cold hard truth!!! This place is the biggest sham of a restaurant. They should not even call it a restaurant. Should call it a tax cover up ho house. Sad but true.

NASTY NASTY NASTY...And as far as service...I bout come unglued on the lady that waited on me. She was huffy and short with my whole family. This place gets a 1 out of 10 two thumbs down and two middle fingers up. Get real food and real service and maybe these comments will change

Who in the world is in charge of this place? i was there on Saturday for lunch and i don't mind paying 10.99 per person to eat plus the cost of drinks if it is worth it. Really? the food was nasty, the service was great. Please get someone in there that knows what they are doing and can help out the cooks. I cant say the food from the kitchen was any better because my daughter ordered out of the kitchen and her steak was so fatty and tough she could not even eat it. Great service though. I feel for all the employees that have to work in that place. I will never be back and i will continue to let all my friends and family know not to come there and just how bad everything was.

i was in there on Tuesday 7/23/2013 and i have to say never again. the server never brought me a refile i had to ask for my check and the other lady told me i am sorry she is new. no excuse....did you train her......it is sad that i chose this establishment to spend my money at when i could have went to mcdonalds a lot cheaper only to be treated by the server as if she could care less that i was there........please get some better servers in there before all your business leaves
what a joke

i have been in this establishment plenty of times...and let me tell you....all i can say is it is becoming a joke...you have employees cussing at other employees in front of customers over a glass and over shoes....not professional...you have servers who dont want to wait on customers while other servers are picking up the slack.i have seen employees being rude to management and seen management be rude to employees.......i have seen servers in there working as hard and as fast as they could go and the male manager come up and want them to do something else or fuss at them.....please get some real people in your restaurant ordering food from the kitchen is really a waste of your time you will get a steak with no season or its burnt or you will have to wait for over 30 minutes for a sandwich......please owners do the right thing and get some good help in there ....not saying that all employees are bad in there but i am saying cleaning house would help your business a lot
