Not going to lie I had my mixed feelings about this place and my boyfriend insisted millions of times to stop here. Well finally on our way back home (we live in Jensen beach) we needed a quick bite to eat so I agreed to stop here. Started 6 raw oysters which were $1 each and might I add they... More

We ate lunch on Monday, 8/11. Atmosphere and music was great. Only outside seating and it was hot outside but they have fans and it's the Keys in Aug so you enjoy the great atmosphere and live with the heat. My husband's blackened snapper was excellent! My BBQ chicken was a little dry for my taste. Loved the sweet potato... More

Yes, the place looks great, the atmosphere is there, and i was looking forward to my rack of ribs... But it was dry and not that tasty. My girlfriend's fried fish was very good, but her mojito was so-so.

This is a great local spot with fun, quirky decor and open air seating. We sat at a table overlooking the marina which made for a nice view. We had the lobster bisque and blackened catch of the day. Both were very tasty.

We have been to Porkys before and this was our last night. We had salads at the bar and spent our dinner talkig with a couple of locals. That is what we go to the keys for. We were not disappointed.

When we got here at about 9apm a talented singer was strumming away at his guitar and singing songs...we were quickly seated with a marina view. The menu had a good variety....not much in the salad area..but alot of other items worth a... More

20 years after honeymooning in Marathon and eating out plenty at Porky's, we came back with the kids and pleased to say so little had changed. Great food, authentic atmosphere, live music and beer on the dockside. Prices have gone up a bit in 20 years, and The Rocketman has since retired, but the seafood and pulled-pork remain just as...

This is a really cool place...right on a small marina. Very local and the staff are friendly. We just had drinks after our fishing trip but I'd like to go back and eat dinner...it seemed like a fun place to hang out!
