Extraordinary customer service paired with delicious food, good value and great location … The Porch Public House in Hayden Lake has you covered.

Since opening its doors in 2003, The Porch has earned the distinct reputation as “Hayden Lake’s gathering place,” and 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. 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. With a large seating area featuring both covered and open-air tables, there’s a spot for everyone, whatever their preference might be.

The Porch features many menu items similar to what you will find at 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 extensive selection of great regional brews and wines, The Porch offers its customers 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. This trickles down to how the staff engages with each guest, bringing the community together while also providing nothing but the best.

If you’re looking for a place to gather with friends or treat your out-of-town guests to an unforgettable meal and experience, The Porch Public House has just what you’re looking for. After all, it is known as “Hayden Lake’s gathering place.”
