Great food

This place has very good food. Prices are good. Service good. Live Music playing . We ate there one night, then went back next night. Breeze off the water was a pleasure.

Hit this place on the way off the keys. I like the atmosphere-it has that relaxed open island feel. Food is average at best. had the pork slider, smoked fish dip and hmmm cant remember what else we got-must have not left much of an impression. Our waiter seemed a little new, confused and had a tear in his shirt-really,... More

We ate here several times while staying at Capt Pips, which is basically on the same grounds. It's pretty much streetside, so theres traffic noise, but it isn't too bad. Boats and marina on the other side. Food was good, we ate burgers and shrimp, no bad meals. Live music in the evenings which was good. Never did try the... More

My husband and I went here for breakfast and were really happy with the choice. It's a bit strange looking on the outside, but just fine on the inside. We sat close to the water looking out at the small marina and the floor was pretty dramatically slanted, which was a bit disconcerting. The food was very good. I had... More

I had the pulled pork basket, my wife had the brisket basket. Food was OK, nothing fantastic. The sauce available at the table was pretty good. Local charter boat was cleaning up and the smell of gasoline and cleaning solution was overwhelming. Too bad the smell did nothing to discourage the flies. Between the odors and the flies, thus is...

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We are glad you liked your meals. Flies unfortunately are hard to control in an open air resturant . We do have things in place to help keep them out of the eating area,however, it is a difficult when the seasons change . The boats come and go certain times... More

Our first inclination was to leave when we got there, but there were lots of good reviews and we were hungry. My husband and I both had the pulled pork sandwich for lunch. We are from NC and love pork barbecue. This pork looked and tasted like it had been thrown in a pot and boiled (gray & no flavor).... More

didn't know where to go for dinner and we had driven by this place. It looked interesting so we stopped. I loved the atmosphere. Watched boats being washed down after they were out all day and the pelicans all around. I had a pulled pork sandwich. It was okay. My husband had the smoked brisket. He didn't care for it... More

Porky's was packed every day during our trip so we decided to give it a try. The staff is friendly, the entertainment is great, the food is tasty and the beer is ice cold. We started with the smoked fish dip and wish we had ordered two! My husband had the Carolina BBQ which we were skeptical of because we... More
