Porterhouse Pub, 416 Gates, Old Town, Mount Vernon, Washington, USA Phone 360-336-9989. The Porterhouse is in downtown Mount Vernon just across the street from the Skagit River. There is tons of parking over looking the the river. It doesn't look like much from the outside but it is much nicer in the inside. They pride themselves on having 21 different types of local beer on tap. Our waitress/ bartender was Malana and she was nice and friendly and worked her butt off keeping every one looked after. You never had to go looking for service! The sit up bar seats 10 people. They have about 10 booths and lots of tables and chairs. The area we sat in had nice wood plank floors. The other side is down a couple of steps and has a pool table aswell. The food was outstanding, I had the pulled pork sandwich on fresh artisan sour dough hoagie style bun. It was very good and I needed a good wash once I was done eating it. The pulled pork came with home made fries and they were very good! My wife had a bowl of the soup of the day which was Beef and Chilli soup which came with several big slices of artisan sour dough bread. The soup was so thick your spoon could stand up straight in it. I snuck a taste and it was great. This place is one that I look forward in coming back to. Great food, great beer and wine selection how can you go wrong!
