And if we had not, it would not have changed our lives. Cleanliness is not a thing here. Tables are cracked and smeared with God knows what, problem a medium for bacterial growth. Having said that, we covered the table with napkins and ordered pulled pork that was not pulled. It was sort of cubed pork served on a lump... More

You can be sure our tables are clean and are free of bacteria. We wipe them down with a beech water solution and than again with a cleaner each and every time s visitor leaves. Being an open air restaurant it's a must. Sometimes you just can't please everyone although we try. Hope you will stop back the next time... More

We went to Porky's after a snorkeling excursion on the Catamaran Spirit. I had the pulled pork basket with Mac and Cheese which was very good. Their menu isn't incredibly large but the prices are reasonable and we both enjoyed our lunch here. Would return.

To be fair, John said his brisket was good. I had the brisket basket.....dry and tough, fries were cold, Meat was barely warm. The sauces were pretty good. Bread stick seemed straight out of a bag. Prices ok. Service slow and indifferent.

Ignore any negative reviews of this place! It is a local marina/bar/restaurant that specializes in pulled pork and brisket. Where else are you going to get that? We saw it on our way down to Key West, and having had our fill of seafood, we wanted something different. Having grown up in the south and raised eating pulled pork, this... More

We visit here every year. This year was no exception. However, they used to have the cheapest, coldest beer in town and reasonable prices for their BBQ and other menu items. NOT THIS YEAR. They increased their prices by 300%. Craziness. They better do some specials to keep regulars coming back.

Craziness is saying we raised our prices 300 percent. Yes we have raised some of our prices on certain dishes by 10 in some cases 20 percent. Most places have, cost of certain products have increased. Sorry you feel that way. Our regulars seem to be fine, we still see the same faces and are pleased that we do. Porky's... More

We're locals (Key Largo) and have passed this place many times when in Marathon. Always wanted to stop; did so today. Service was great, enjoyed the sides and the setting, but the pulled pork was some of the worse we've ever had. It was dry, fatty and with no flavor (no smoke). Quite a disappointment for a joint that has... More
