Hayden Lake, Idaho, can be found just north of Coeur d’Alene, and this small town has been dishing up some big flavors since 2003, when the community was introduced to The Porch Public House. Here you are invited to enjoy a meal in a comfortable setting while overlooking golf-course views. “The location is really off the beaten track and quite beautiful,” says John Grollmus, owner.

Since opening its doors nearly 18 years ago, The Porch has earned the distinct reputation as “Hayden Lake’s gathering place,” and John and co-owner Brad Fosseen couldn’t be more proud to be able to continue to offer a retreat for the community to relax and enjoy a wonderful meal out.

It’s the perfect setting to dine and imbibe with friends, family or co-workers any time of year, no matter what the occasion. Extraordinary customer service paired with delicious food, good value and great location … The Porch has you covered.

Open year-round, The Porch features many menu items similar to what you will find at Moon Time, their Coeur d’Alene restaurant, 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.

No meal would be complete without a great drink! In addition to their extensive selection of great regional brews and wines, The Porch offers its customers a full bar, which allows them to provide guests a variety of delicious and creative cocktails made to order by their experienced bar staff.

The Porch Public House offers a hospitable environment and friendly staff all will appreciate. This is a place that continues to bring the community together while also providing nothing but the best when it comes to food and drink. If you’re looking for a place to gather with friends and family or treat your out-of-town guests to an unforgettable meal and experience, The Porch Public House is just the answer.
