“High Prices - Average Food”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

This would be a great spot if the prices weren't unreasonably high. The restaurant has a formal dining room on one side and a bar on the other. The food is above average and the salad bar is wonderful. This casual dining restaurant is priced closer to a fine dining establishment. For example, a single trip to the salad bar is nearly $10. There are better places to visit on Marco Island with more reasonable prices.

“Locals come after snowbird have gone!”
Reviewed May 8, 2013 via mobile

We went last night and had great service and wonderful food. The almost $10.00 salad bar was counted as one of our sides. Great plus for keeping the place busy after snowbirds have gone north. Love the ribs, chicken salad and great burgers. We both ate plenty and brought home to go boxes for lunch today for less than$25.00. Can't beat it and will return. Many great items on menu and the bar on the other side also has live music. Fun place!

“Horrible service”
Reviewed April 14, 2013

Ordered lunch as soon as we sat.
IN spite of waiting a long time , customers coming after us were being fed , and our server just stated food is on its way.
I was obvious something was wrong , or it was not ordered yet,
another agonizing 10 minutes and we decided to walk out.
All the server could say was ITS coming .. made us feel miserable , did not offer any appolgies / or even say we can get it to go.
My thoughts are it might have been someone from the management or owner whom i dealt with.

“Great service, Reasonable and Excellent Salad Bar”
Reviewed April 7, 2013

This is a good barbecue restaurant. It is not fancy, but the food and service were very good. My wife had ribs and I had the 1/2 smoked chicken. It is not most barbecue chicken since the chicken is smoked and does not come out with sauce on it, however they offer a nice assortment of sauces. The salad bar is fresh with a nice assortment. Don't miss the chicken salad on the salad bar as it is excellent. The server (Jeremy) was excellent.

“Great food”
Reviewed March 31, 2013

Porkies is always reliable and consistent. Carry out is so easy and the smoked chicken is to die for.
