PORTERS DINING at the DEPOT & GREAT FUN - Approaching this beautifully restored 1910 Railroad Station with its soaring tile roof, massive beams and brick exterior, one is reminded of the pride and sense of belonging that went into yesterday’s public buildings. Step inside and the warm interior of authentic Craftsman era detailing exudes comfort and nostalgia. Porters, named after those who served aboard passenger trains, offers just that kind of caring, professional service. Located in the heart of Medford’s Old Town Restaurant District, Porters is renowned for slow roasting the area’s finest Prime Rib (while it lasts). The daily fresh seafood, aged-tender beef, contemporary American and international flavors are expertly prepared and reasonably priced. Porters also has a loyal following for their romantic tree shaded patio. The massive back bar is one of the most striking in the state where 60 classic and local wines,12 ice cold draft beers, the world’s premier spirits and Porters’ popular "Martoonis" may be enjoyed smoke free. Many support Porters because the three local owners have preserved a community historic treasure, but most return for superior food, service and ambiance, moderate prices and consistent quality. Banquets and Business meetings. Plenty of parking. Bar opens 4 pm and Dinner from 5 pm nightly. Reservations accepted. 147 North Front Street, Downtown Medford, 857-1910.
