Cool and kitschy local marina hangout with heavenly barbecue. The spare ribs, fried corn on the cob, and the baked beans are spectacular. Not so sensational is the renowned deep fried key lime pie; we'll take the original anyday. Martin is marvelously funny behind the bar.

Porky's has been here since the 50's, we are well known. Although we have made some needed improvements, we have kept the old keys feeling. We are known for our BBQ and fresh seafood dishes and specials. Hope you will stop in the next time you are back this way. Porky's team More

You can sit at a table right on the side of the marina here and really enjoy the amazing view, which you may as well make the most of because the food is just satisfactory at best and the service is so-so.....and the toilets, abysmal. Furthermore my wife was served a diet coke that tasted more like disinfectant than Coke,... More

Great place to go for breakfast, lunch or dinner! My family never wants to try any other place. I only give a 5 if I visit a place more than once and this place never lets you down. Always good food and friendly service. Place looks great, festive for the holidays! Love it!

We rented a room a Captain Pips for 3 days so we went to Porky's every day for happy hour and for dinner twice. Drafts for us were $2 for happy hour. Hubby liked the peel and eat shrimp, the fish spread and the mango fritters for appetizers. Had the turkey dinner on Thanksgiving which were large portions and included... More

We visited this place on a Wednesday, the service was slow and struggled to communicate in English, the food was horrendous, i ordered ribs, they were terrible, i would say they were cooked the day before and then reheated. It would be great if you enjoy eating greasy fatty grissle and did not like meat on your ribs, the entertainment... More

Cocktails were overpriced. Food was just average; conch fritters not very tasty and crab cakes were overcooked. Server was very nice and took good care of us.

If there is one spot you have to try while on Marathon this is it! If you are a meat lover then their ribs are for you. If, like me, you like seafood try their local products like: conch fritters, crab cakes (scrumptious), or stone crabs. I did not try their famous deep fried key lime pie as I was... More
