About this Business
From Our Editors
Located at the official landmark for Famous Porter Rockwell, Porter's Place offers homestyle food with a dose of history. Guests can sip a sarsaparilla, feast on barbecue buffalo bits, or finish off a 20-ounce porterhouse as they learn about Mormon pioneer Orrin Porter Rockwell. While the history of the man understandably snags most of the focus, the building itself has quite a past. It was built in 1915 and was originally heated by two coal and wood stoves and lots of wishful thinking. It includes a bar that dates back to 1881, a beehive clock built for the 1912 opening of Hotel Utah, and fresh food that has barely any history at all.
