About Porter & Rye
The food was amazing,nice touches with the small starter which was unexpected and our steaks were very tasty. The restaurant was lovely and would definitely go back.
Amazing steaks, slow service
The food here is amazing, always is. The whole family of what ended up being 10 of us enjoyed every mouthful. The staff were nice but very slow, they seemed very busy for a Monday night although the restaurant didn't appear to be super busy. We waited an hour for our main courses, worth the wait, but meant my sister had to eat quickly to get the baby home before she passed out.
Contemporary steakhouse and cocktails in Finnieston
Part of the Finnieston strip of Argyle Street, Porter & Rye is one of the chic and hip restaurants which have been responsible for the area’s burgeoning culinary reputation over the last few years. Intimate and flatteringly dimly lit, it has a stylish decor that is half old school Manhattan steak house and half post-industrial warehouse. It is a small space which is cleverly split between the bar and dining areas on the ground floor and mezzanine level. Rockabilly and early rock ‘n’ roll keep the atmosphere lively and the extensive offering of innovative cocktails and esoteric bourbons don’t hurt either.
Carefully sourced steaks dry-aged in-house
Porter & Rye carefully source the finest Scotch beef and dry age it in-house for a minimum of 50 days, sometimes up to 120 days. This beef is available in several cuts, some designed for sharing, and served with sides, sauces and the customer’s choice of steak knife.
While the steaks are at the centre of Porter & Rye menus, they also like to use local foraged ingredients in dishes such as the starter of Glenlethnot rabbit saddle with rabbit haggis, slow cooked leg, jus roti and girolle mushrooms. The Sunday roast is always popular.
Finnieston transport and attractions
Porter & Rye is at the Finnieston end of Argyle Street. There is limited on-street parking and several bus routes go to and from the city centre from outside the restaurant. Kelvinhall is the nearest subway. The SECC, Hydro and Kelvingrove Gallery and Museum are all within easy walking distance.
