I always purchase the fresh seafood. Have had lunch a few times and always very good! They explain how to cook the seafood, and can tell you where every piece of fish they sell comes from. Live this place.

Captain Porky's is close to home and serves as my fried fish and shrimp go to. I have never tried the bar-b-que or any other fish or seafood selection. What I can tell you is the fried catfish fillets are always fried up to perfection. Lightly seasoned (so if you want spicy or heavily seasoned you'll have to add that... More
Okay....I really can't believe that people say this is the best seafood place in Chicago! Are you kidding me? We have now tried the carry out three different times and each one was worse than before. This last Friday night my husband stopped for carry out on the way home from work. We ordered a ton of food so that... More
Since my last review...I have been...in person...to Captain Porky's!! Oh...that smoking scent in the air! Had my head hanging out the car door when we pulled in!! Mmm!! LOVE that smell! Although, I don't care for their ribs...the smoked salmon is to die for!!! Mmm!! Great smokey taste! Took some to a party and it was demolished!! I also picked... More
We had lunch here. the food quality was exceptional, service was fast. the place has a good, down home feel. BBQ choices are excellent. Limited seating.
The food in this little shack is really delicious ! This restaurant is basically for seafood but there are other items on the menu that supplement the seafood . The main thing is that whatever you choose to eat will be succulent . Where ever you live , you will make plans to visit this establishment over and over .

The ribs are tough and not much meat on them...sides are not good either! I've personally never been to the restaurant to eat...my husband has always grabbed it on the way home from work...could have... More
Stopped at this place on the way back from Madison. It was the perfect low-hassle food stop for a road trip. So many choices of delicious smoked meats and fried seafood, it was hard to choose. I chose the Smelt with coleslaw, and my husband the crawfish tails and hush puppies. I can't believe how fast we shoveled that food... More
We had the Catfish, Crab Cakes, Alligator, Fried Shrimp and of course some bbq. ALL of it was wonderful. Everything ordered was first rate and delicious. My son picked it up and brought it back. We all shared our choices and single person was impressed. Next time I am in town I am most certainly ordering again and again.
We have been here before and the food is always good. We had a smoked salmon salad, fried perch, wild mushroom salad, and Oreo cheesecake. It did not disappoint. Food was very good and although there isn't a lot of ambiance the good food makes up for lack of tablecloths and table service. One of our favorite places for fried... More
