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. The friends we traveled with picked Porky's and we were skeptical but went anyway. It wasn't busy. We were the only table in there but the service was still lacking. The... More

Went to Porky's and shared a rack of Baby Back Ribs. It was HUGE, very meaty, fell of the bones, great taste. Had to give 5-6 bones to others (6 of us) and they all said best ribs ever. Casual atmosphere at a marina on the bay. Fried cheese cake was also very good.

Food was good. Not happy with the establishment or server. Food is better if you get a basket. If not it got expensive.

We have been here before and I forgot how good the food is. Open-air; pet-friendly: sit on the water. Skip the fried key lime pie. Great service. No fuss... No muss.

Marathon has such interesting restaurants and this is definitely in that category. The food was very good and served efficiently to our group of 9. Right beside docks, so it was fun to watch the scuba boat come in and some fishing boats. The fried key lime pie was the best there of any others we tried. Absolutely delicious!!!

The BBQ was fine, but I thought the ribs were dry. We had a late lunch and the servers were efficient and friendly. My husband had the BBQ sandwich. It was large and tasty. The Potato Salad was very good. This place is fine if you are tired of seafood.
