So surprised to have such good calamari at this place. All our meals were good and excellent service to go along with it. September is slow in the keys so we did not have to wait and service was quick

We visited here while driving back to Miami after a weekend in KW. The Yelp and TA reviews were what ultimately sold us. Among those in our party we had the Cuban sandwich, a BBQ sandwich, the Reuben, and the fries whole Red Snapper. All agreed the food was quite good and the ambience of sitting on an inlet off...

Funky little joint, outside dining on the water. Pulled pork sandwich had a nice smoke flavor and the sauces were delicious.

My cousin's wedding was catered by Porky's. The chicken, pulled pork and coleslaw were all average if not bland. I did enjoy the beans.

Thank you very much for taking your time to leave us a review on Trip Advisor. We do prep and smoke our chickens or pork lightly (not overwhelmed by seasoning) and we do provide a variety of BBQ sauces to appeal to everybody's taste. We are very sorry that we didn't satisfy you. Sincerely, Porky's Team :) More

Don't leave the area without having one of these sandwiches...Absolutely the best! The place was one of the older authentic pier side restaurants with a good selection of beer and food. With daily specials and great service. A must go to while in the Keys.

Marathon is my vacation spot with my husband every year and we had been to Porky's before but heard the menu was new and it was under new management.
