I've been coming here for fifteen years and I've never been disappointed. A great family business with great service and great food. My favorite are the ribs and chicken, but the BBQ sauce is amazing. Worth trying if you're in the area.

I love the pork shoulder sandwich here as well as the Alligator. Their smoked fish is quite good and their seafood stew which has been a special that they've been running lately is great. When I want to have some comfort food that is absolutely delicious, I go to Captain Porky's.

It doesn't get much better than this. Seafood, fresh or cooked, alligator, lobster, pork shoulder, homemade cheese, homegrown olive oil from Greece, fresh vegetables, all made in front of your face OR take it home and cook it yourself. AWESOME!!!
