We come to Marathon each winter and always make a few trips to Porky's. Since last year they have new menus, new tables and slapped on some fresh paint. Regardless of the changes this place still has a rustic atmosphere and the floor is definitely sinking into the bay. In 2013 the prices were noticeably higher and there was another... More

It was pretty quiet for a Friday night, and it seemed like mostly locals hanging out. The service was ok, the food ok, the staff ok. There were a couple guys playing guitar and keyboard and they played sometimes really good, or really badly, and they said as much. I enjoyed them. The atmosphere was truly juke joint and comfortable.... More

They say that their All You Can Eat fish and the fish fingers, is Trigger fish. Not it is not. It is really swai. Human consumption of the gray triggerfish has been linked to cases of ciguatera poisoning. Clearly, they don't care about their customers, they only want to make the sale - if they lied to me about the... More

This was my second trip to Porkys, the first under new ownership. Food was great like my last trip and prices about what you would expect in the Keys. The staff was very helpful and service was great. We tried fish tacos, beef brisket, burger & Philly sandwich. All were good. I will defiantly be back again. It doesn't look... More

I love eclectic restaurants because I normally found good food and Porkys' is no exception, price won't bankrupt you, good service and all people of every extraction having a great meal in total relaxation. The posts, rafters any thing that was permanent is marked with vacationers signatures or other memorability tacked to them.

We have been here a couple times. The ambiance is not romance. It is shabby chic the food is marvelous the service can be slow when busy but it's worth the wait. Good food at reasonable prices for Florida Keys

We called in at about 7pm - not late for dinner I wouldn"t have thought. I lost count of the number of items that were 'off' the menu, including the special! Why advertise a daily special if you cannot provide it ??? I eventually ordered shrimp (ok) and sauteed veggies - truly disgusting. Limp and saturated in God knows what... More

Dear Customer, Thank you for your review. We are glad to hear that you liked our rice and black beans. As it comes to daily specials - it is common practice in the restaurant to prepare only certain amount of them for each service. Therefore there is only certain amount available and once we run out, there is no more... More

I don't even know where to start. The waitress was beyond rude. The service was the worst service I've EVER had....and that is not an exaggeration. We stopped by for drinks while we waited to check into our hotel. We ordered two apitizerers. The fried green beans (they were great) and the fish dip. The fish dip had no flavor... More

Dear Customer, We are sorry about your experience. We do apologize if the waitress was rude. Porky's goal is to provide exceptional customer service and we are truly sorry if that wasn't the case. As it comes to the chips served with Fish Dip - we do our own homemade tortilla chips daily, so it is highly unlikely that they... More

We have had breakfast and dinner at Porkys the food was wonderful. They service enough food, so if you go away hungry it will be your fault. They also have an artist there by the name of Dave who does really nice work.

Complete with creepy guy drinking beer at 8 am and trying to sell his artwork Porkys is a disaster. Stopped in for breakfast on our way out of town only one other table was there. No greeting at the door. The waitress was either still drunk or stoned. After 10 minutes we got up to get our own menus. Ten... More

Dear Sir, Looks like you had some kind of nightmare experience somewhere in the Keys. I wouldn't agree though it happened at Porky's. We take big pride in delivering great customer service or at least doing our best to greet our customers and provide fast, friendly and professional service. I have checked our security cameras and the reality looked different... More
