Lovin Porky's

Porky's is a casual place that has a good variety of food, although it is known for it's barbecue (ribs). It sits by a marina and is more like eating in a hut...very casual. The grouper sandwich was yummy. Good place for a laid-back dinner with live entertainment on certain nights.

Title says it all. The music was the best part about this restaurant. Firstly when we entered we requested an ocean view table and being a party of five they couldn't POSSIBLY put a chair on the end as it would block the aisle (it wasn't a fire exit just the waiter might have to do a bit of extra...

This is a place we have visited many times over the past 12 years; most years, a couple of times in our week or so stay in the Keys. We cut that back to only once this year after last year's visit--it looks like we will cut it out completely after this visit. I gave new ownership a chance and... More

Nice bayside casual restaurant. We had the BBQ dinner for two, which could have fed four! The food was good so we decided to try breakfast one day. The pancakes were very good and so was the Key Lime french toast.

This place was great. We had lunch one afternoon. The food was tasty. The atmosphere was nice. There was an artist in the back selling photos of his work which was beautiful. Our waitress was attentive and really nice.

We visited this open air restaurant during the week. The BBQ was very good. We had ribs, plain pork and the Nc style. The ribs were tender and fell off of the bone. The plain pork was extremely flavorful. The NC style was vinegar based with peppers. It was too hot but tasted good. If you are a fan of... More
