Good food and drinks

This is a great place to eat and drink. It is by the water and always a breeze. The food was delicious and Porky's Punch was pretty tasty too. Great service and reasonably priced. Family friendly.

Very casual place with good food. What else can be said? I would go back. The BBQ was delicious and my boys liked the burgers. The server was very friendly. We went for breakfast but were too late. We had lunch instead.

This place had a relaxed vibe and unique environment. It is probably a cool place if you were looking for a bar atmosphere at night. It was neat to sit by the water, except for the pile of green slime collected down below. That was unappetizing, as well as the dogs at the table next to us. Just doesn't seem... More

This place was so cute! When you first walk up, you're like...what is this place? Let me tell you...this is an awesome spot. Over looking the bay, the food was great, and the vibe was perfect. The staff was great and very attentive. The ribs were awesome! My kids ate the burger, which they loved. A little pricey, but we... More

Nice staff and a typical Keys restaurant - Tiki style roof and open air space. Nice local music during dinner. Salad with grilled shrimp was very good. Didn't try the pork - for which they are apparently famous - next time!

If you want to experience the Florida Keys, this is the place to go. It's in the "dive bar" category with uneven floors and tables and a very eclectic clientele. When you get here, you know you are no longer on the mainland. The staff is friendly, but in typical Keys style, service can be slow. I had the North... More

Looks like my review was not uploaded, so here I go again. This restaurant/bar is nicely situated on the Marina side, just prior to the 7 mile bridge. While meeting a longtime friend, I was able to enjoy drinks, ribs and wonderful gravy and biscuits before heading off to the beach. Free Wi-Fi allowed me to get into my work... More

We visited porky's bayside restaurant for dinner while coming back from key west to miami. It was almost closing time and we felt bad to visit at that time, but staff greeted us very well. Small cozy place with bay view. Our server Bradley was very welcoming and friendly. I am vegeterian and found excellent veg burger. I would like... More

Ate at porky's while on vacation in the keys after reading good reviews. The food seemed stale as if it was reheated. The chicken was tasteless and the ribs tough. It was a very expensive meal for something that was inedible. There were also flies buzzing around. Maybe I should have sent the meal back but couldn't wait to get... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. Sorry to hear you had complaints. We are always striving to serve good food, service and atmosphere . The flies unfortunately come with the outdoor resturants, although we do have a service doing all we can. I hope you will give us another chance, so many reviews do say we... More
