Great location! Friendly staff, but that was it. Ya get that feeling that things may not be all that clean... Ribs were dry, last of the day, no doubt. Some folks in our party were reluctant to finish the meal. Fabulous potential.... Need to fix things, scrub it up, serve more fresh like food.

You can be assured we are a clean restaurant. Being an open air on the water restaurant we may look weathered, however, because we are an open air place we constantly clean all day long. More than enclosed places. Sorry you felt the ribs were dry, if your brought it to be servers attention we certainly would have brought you... More

The staff was friendly, the food was excellent (try any of their fried fish dishes- the breading is light and crispy - very tasty), and so were the drinks. I loved their mojitos (fun sugar cane garnish). My favorite was the key lime mojito. Nice big screen TV in the bar area for watching sports.

Had a great diner (plain and simple meals but very tasteful) and quite a decent mojito at this great bar and restaurant, surrounded by locals and enjoying some good old live music. Good night out thanks to the friendly Porky's staff! Don't expect much and be surprised.

We stopped in for lunch, and enjoyed the quirky atmosphere, harbor side seating, down-to-earth waitress, fresh fish, and really amazing Key Lime Pie. We'll be back.

Casual place to eat. The ribs were average tasting. Nice atmosphere until the band started. We really did not enjoy dining there because it was so loud.

Thank you for your review. Usually we get great reviews on the ribs, sorry you thought the music was loud, as you saw we are under construction and the music was closer to the tables than it usually is. Once we are finished the music will be back further away from the tables. Hope you will stop in again and... More

We ate our first breakfast while in Marathon at this quaint roadside restaurant. The food was great. Quantities were large. Staff was very pleasant. In the long run we felt that the prices were a tad bit high.
