Bearing a more bar-like image than that of a restaurant, The Porterhouse Bar & Grill sits on 17004 Collins Ave. in Sunny Isles Beach. Just one block from the beach, this restaurant constantly gets a light breeze, perfect for sitting on the front patio in the high tables with a cold beer in hand. On the inside, Porterhouse continues to transmit the same relaxed atmosphere, but it hints a little more at the “bar” side of its name. One thing that either makes or breaks this restaurant is the fact that customers are allowed to smoke inside. If you’re a smoker, you’ll love it; if you’re not, then keep in mind that you’ll be secondhand smoking a lot.
I suggest you try and find a seat outside, where the breeze might help keep some of the smoke away. Porterhouse has great Buffalo wings that you can choose from mild, medium or hot. Their flavor is great and the Buffalo sauce topped with a little ranch is the perfect combination. Another great thing about this restaurant for all the beer fans out there is that it offers 3×1 draft beers. However, they do cheat you a little; the beer glasses are smaller than your typical 12-ounce beers. It also offers another happy hour from 11 p.m. to 3 a.m. with 2×1 drinks. So for all you heavyweights out there: Enjoy!
