“Good Breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2014

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!

“Ribs are delicious!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2014

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,

“What the Keys are all about...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2014

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 a singer with their guitar. Dog friendly! Jenny behind the bar is a ray of sunshine and genuinely happy to serve you a cold one. The bar is beer and wine only, but Jenny is quite good at whipping up (wine based liquor) frozen tropical goodness.

“Porky's Bayside still the best in Marathon”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2014

Wow the improvements just keep coming! The place is looking updated but keeping it's keys charm! So glad you brought back breakfast, each day was something yummy and different. Chef Sean made me a sesame seared tuna salad with your pear dressing ohhhh so good, it was so good I had to come back the next night to have it again.
So happy you are making the improvements, it is nice to know you will be there each time we come back. You have become our home away from home.... Keep up the great work.

“Best BBQ Ribs in town!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2014

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 been in search of the best fish sand which in Marathon, Fl and it was not here. This place is famous for ribs! Service was ok. The guy that waited on us was great but then a lady took over at the end and was stressed out a bit because they messed up our seep rate checks for our two families that ate there. We were in no rush and it all worked out, we will definitely go back again. Great food, nice view of water.
