Porterhouse Bar and Grill, Glebe

We’ve passed by this unassuming restaurant on Glebe Point Road many times, not realising that a bustling bar and grill lay behind the quaint cottage facade which is visible from the street. Porterhouse Bar and Grill is a straight up steakhouse, with friendly service and the cosy surrounds evokes a bit of a country feel, though we’re on the city fringe. We’re seated in the al fresco area tonight, which would have been nice in warmer weather, but was a little chilly on the night we visited as there was a breeze (luckily there are outdoor heaters!).

We start off with a generous serving of Buffalo Wings, covered in a “hot and spicy” sauce which was milder than we expected, despite the fact there was a huge chilli adorning the plate. Despite this, the wings were a good way to kick things off, especially when dunked in their creamy ranch sauce.

The mains took a while to come out (it was a very busy night in the kitchen) and we were pretty ready to dig into them when they finally arrived. The boy went for the Wagyu, which was a rump steak that was more juicy and tender than the usual for this cut, complemented nicely by a rich mushroom sauce. He also opted to upgrade his side to the Porterhouse Mash, which was satisfyingly buttery with a subtle hint of garlic.

I chose the Lamb Ribs (just a half cage) which were basted in a BBQ sauce – the sides of the cage were a bit tough, but the middle part of the cage fell off the bone nicely. All of the Porterhouse’s ribs are served with some crunchy thick cut steak fries and a small salad.

  Lamb Ribs (Half Cage), $31.90

All in all, Porterhouse Bar and Grill serves up solid steak and ribs at a reasonable price point for the city – which isn’t much of a secret, judging by the full house on the night we visited.
