Porch is Open at Schenley Plaza in Oakland

You walk in are handed a menu by host/ hostess. Told to place your order at the counter. The counter is connected to the bar. There are ample booths and tables to choose. After, you place your order handed a number and directed to have a seat. They will bring you meal out to you. It's got that European flair. I was there for lunch. I enjoyed my meal and staff were very friendly.

Has anyone else eaten there? They are open for dinner to. Porch opened Nov. 14th.

  1. The Porch has sit down service for dinner. Tried it out with a few friends and it looks like it can be very good place. Did not try but was told the Turkey sandwich was very good. The pizza and wings come from a brick oven and were good. Wings were smoky and come with 3 sauces, Buffalo and BBQ, both were enjoyable. Also had the duck legs that were delicious.

    They have some micro-bres, wind and a few porch drinks. The Almost Arnie is Limoncello and tea, very enjoyable.
