A great stop for lunch and to watch the marina activity

Really good barbeque. We're from NC and thought the pulled pork was good and the brisket was excellent. Really good fish tacos too. Had lunch here after snorkeling with the outfit next door. Made for a great day.

Small charming key style place for locals. Great food and drinks. Try the barbecue or pulled pork. The water lapping on shore near you will soothe you.

Was close to where we stayed and wasn't worth the walk! Food wasn't great, too expensive and staff needs training in manners. felt like we were bothering them by being there. Wouldn't go back if was free!

Porky's is a nice-sized open-air restaurant. For seating they have picnic tables, patio furniture, and regular tables with padded chairs. They also have a bar at which you can sit. There are plenty of ceiling fans to keep the air circulating. Our server was pleasant and attentive. My husband and I both ordered the Mojo Marinade Cuban Pork which was... More

The food was fine and the servers friendly but it is not a place I will visit again. The menus were falling apart, servers had.... interesting.... stains down the front of their faded Porky's branded T shirts. The table was sticky. If the place was very low cost perhaps it's ok. But its not in either case. One thing that... More

We stayed at a nearby resort and they recommended Porky's for breakfast. It doesn't look like much from the road but it definitely was clean with a whimsical, funky style. I had a pulled pork breakfast sandwich, yes, that's right! Two consecutive days, it rocked! My wife loved their french toast and we both loved the breakfast potatoes. Coffee was... More
