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!

This was our 2nd family vacation in Marathon. One of our "new" Favotite places is Porky's. We went there last year and made sure to come back this year too! Great food, great service! Porky's was also very accommodating to our large group. We will make sure to stop here again next year!

Fast and great food. The crabcake and the fish dip were really good. The fish come right up to the back of the place.

Visited on a Friday morning and had the Smokehouse breakfast. The tender snd tasty smoked pork was delightful addition to a rather normal every day breakfast. My other guest had the Southern Country breakfast with corned beef hash which was cooked just right. Our waitress was very attentive and helpful with menu questions. Overall, the service was darn good!

Accommodated 10 people right away. Everyone loved their food! Ribs are really good! Tried the key lime pie. Not the best I have had. Too creamy and could hardly taste the lime. Another person in our party had the carrot cake. Wasn't the best. Not enough flavor. Skip dessert!

Thank you very much! We are very glad to hear that the ribs were delicious. Sorry, we didn't meet your expectations on the desserts. Most of our customers love the deep fried key lime pie :( We cannot wait to be able to accommodate you again at your next visit! Sincerely, Porky's Team :) More

This Keysie little place has a lot of character. Great BBQ, beef and pork! Delicious seafood. If you have a hard time getting your kids to eat their green beans, order the Fried Green Beans appetizer, im addicted! The menu has something for everyone. The food is consistently good, we are never disappointed. Live music every night, nothing loud, usually... More

My family ordered the famous ribs after we went snorkeling right next door at Spirit Snorkeling which was another amazing local business that I will have to write a review for. The ribs fell right off the bone and had great flavor. I ordered the fish sandwich which was a triggerfish, white and flakey and was just ok! I have... More
