Hayden Lake’s Gathering Place

The Porch Public House

Opened in 2003 in Hayden Lake, Idaho, by John Grollmus and Brad Fosseen—the duo behind Moon Time in Coeur d’Alene—the Porch Public House offers 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.

With Moon Time being a neighborhood favorite for Coeur d’Alene diners since 1996, John and Brad decided to bring a similar concept to the Hayden community. 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. In addition to the selection of great regional brews and wines, The Porch offers a full bar and the area’s finest cocktails to accompany your meal.

Whether you choose to dine in the comfortable pub-style dining room or enjoy the view from their outdoor dining area, you’ll feel like you’re at home.

At The Porch, the values are consistent with those implemented at Moon Time. The owners and staff have a relationship built on mutual respect and friendship. “We value each employee personally, not just taking the time to say thanks every day, but also to know about their families, friends and significant others, and ask questions to know what is happening in their personal lives,” says John.

With all of the success these friends and business partners have secured in the restaurant business, Brad says what makes him truly proud is that guests keep coming back and have become friends, and he has a staff who sees to it.

Every neighborhood should be so lucky, and thanks to John and Brad, Hayden Lake is one lucky place.
