Earning the reputation as “Hayden Lake’s gathering place” since opening in 2003, owners John Grollmus and Brad Fosseen—the duo behind Moon Time in Coeur d’Alene (and The Elk, El Que, Two Seven and Geno’s in Spokane)—continue to offer diners exceptional food, brews, cocktails and service, all complemented by a beautiful golf-course view, at The Porch Public House. It’s the perfect setting to dine and imbibe with friends, family or co-workers any time of year, no matter what the occasion.
“The location is really off the beaten track and quite beautiful, which makes the outside seating truly one-of-a-kind,” notes John.
The Porch features many similar menu items to Moon Time, with some that are distinct to its locale. From the delicious sandwiches, salads and soups to scratch-made specials, you’ll be treated to great food at even better prices. “We provide new specials every week as well as updating our menus twice per year so that guests can develop new favorites to go along with their old ones,” affirms John.
In addition to the selection of great regional brews and wines, The Porch offers a full bar, which enables them to provide guests a variety of delicious and creative cocktails to accompany any meal.
At The Porch, the values are consistent with those implemented at their other establishments. The owners and staff have a relationship built on mutual respect and friendship, valuing each employee personally.
When asked if there is ever discussion of adding to their family of restaurants, John says, “While there is nothing concrete in the works, we are always keeping our eyes open for new opportunities, so never be surprised if a new location joins the family in the future.
“We try to not expand too fast so that we can be sure each restaurant is providing the best experience for guests as well as being on a solid financial footing so that by expanding we aren’t compromising our existing locations.”
Extraordinary customer service paired with delicious food, good value and great location … The Porch Pubic House has you covered.
