Wish I could give a 0. Never been more insulted. I’m 33 and have been going to Porkys since I was 18. Today my wife and I, along with another couple decided to grab wings and a beer at Porkys—around 3...oclock. Each couple brought their baby—something we have done numerous times since their births. Today we were approached by one of the owners and told that he “frowns upon parents being in their establishment drinking with their children”. Last week, or the week before, nobody mentioned this to us as we watched football with the kids at Porkys. I’ve never seen anybody else get asked to leave when they are in Porkys with their kids having a beer — including today where there were at least 2 other parents in there with children far more impressionable due to their age than my son. 10 years ago I may have made a scene but seeing how there were in fact other impressionable children in the establishment, us 30 something’s decided to politely leave. I encourage all parents to read this disclaimer: do not go to Porkys if you have a kid with you...oh wait that can’t be right bc there were other kids in there today and There are numerous kids that go in there with their parents after their pop Warner games. Really not sure what the disclaimer should be then. Instead how about if you’re an owner of a bar, know who your loyal, responsible customers are. Also turn the heat on, it’s cold in there! Poor bartenders wearing parkas! See More

My family and I go in choose the table in the back away from the corner wall. Waitress comes over doesn't say hi but asks us to move to the table against the corner wall. My husband said no, why? The ...idiot waitress said that if a large group of people comes in they have to move us and our food to a different table anyways, just so they can push other tables together. So I said to the waitress, you're telling me that if I'm eating my dinner and a group of people comes in and you need to push three tables together you're going to move my family and food? She said yes. My husband replied, I don't want to move and sit in a corner and if you asked us to move while we're eating our dinner, I'm going to flip the table. She took that as a threat, which it was not. Who the f*** in their right mind has the balls & audacity to tell a customer to move over in case of crowd comes in when it's clearly empty on a Thursday evening at 6? I then called the owner as I'm walking back to my car and he said that it's his policy. It doesn't matter where you're sitting if they need to group tables together for a larger group of people they will move you. Needless to say, as many times as I have been there over the years and gotten rude waitresses I usually went back because the food was halfway decent. we will never go back and I will urge all of you to stay the hell away from such rude ignorant assholes.

Lost a HUGE clientele of 10+ year customers this past weekend. Don’t sponsor/host youth teams after games, offer take-out food, or label yourself an “American restaurant” on this page if you are truly... just a “Bar”; this is what the owner stated that Porkys was as he passive aggressively made us and our friends leave the establishment with our children before my husband and I even took a sip of our drink or looked at the menu. Their loss. See More

Incredibly insulted. If you have a child and want to get a beer and wings with your friends do not go here. We were approached by the opener and told that he frowns on parents “drinking” with their ch...ildren at his place of ownership. My husband and I were sipping on 1 beer each and our friends hadn’t even had a sip but because we had our children with us apparently we were doing something wrong. When we said we were leaving he told us he wasn’t telling us to leave!?! This is legitimate discrimination. There are so many places in the valley that have welcomed us with open arms now that we have a child to enjoy their restaurant. My husband, my friend and I have been patrons for YEARS (regretfully) but I will NEVER return to this establishment. See More

I am not going to let last nights episode ruin all the good times that we have experienced there, but it took the one good guy to straighten it all all out!

Place is a joke. Horrible service. I live right on Howe ave and will never come here again. Horrible staff that don't pay attention on a mediocre night. I'm afraid to see them on a busy night. What a JOKE!

I used to love this place but found out that they aren’t a family establishment anymore. Apparently, parents aren’t welcome with their children here any longer. Kind of sucks that a local spot doesn’t... support customers of all kinds. See More

I was at your bar yesterday (Tuesday October 27th) to watch game 1 of the World Series with a group of about 20-30 other Mets fans. Now on a night like a Tuesday where one can assume you are normally ...slow the bar was actually fairly crowded and this is mostly due to a Facebook group bringing all of these Mets fans in. You would think that the bartenders would be happy to have our business on a slow night but in actuality I have never felt more unwelcome at a bar. I understand with only 2 bartenders the service might be a little slow, however, we did call a day early to let them know we would be there. Also, the bar is supposed to be open until 1am according to all sources I could find but the kitchen closed at 930 (right around the 5th inning of a game that went quite long) and then the bartenders started cleaning up the bar at 11. In fact at one point when the game became tied and went to extra innings the bartenders were upset that they couldn't go home early instead of being happy for more tips and trying to continue to sell us drinks. The only reason this review received 2 stars and not 1 is because I enjoyed the food. I know myself and probably most of the Mets fans there last night will not be returning, I'm sure there are plenty of other bars in the area that would enjoy the extra business during the World Series.

Have been a few times since we live close by. Everyone is very nice, friendly and the food is good. Unfortunately there is one waitress who is less than pleasant. Other patrons have not so pleasant ni...cknames for her. If you can't be pleasant, don't be in a people business. We will be back but hopefully on days that she is not working., See More

Went here the other night with 6 other friends. Really good wings that are worth a return trip. Ordered a few different pizzas, all of them really good too. Two floor place, lots of room to sit. Had g...ood service from two waitresses. I order my beer with a lemon in it, only had to ask for it the first time and they remembered the rest of the night without me asking. One of the waitresses in particular was really friendly, made conversation with our table and had a good sense of humor. Always appreciate good service with a personality and they didn't disappoint. I'm sure we will be going back here for more nights out. See More

Porkys has the best buffalo wings around. They have actually become my favorite.
We have become regulars at the restaurant and have never had bad service until tonight. We got menus, but noone came b...ack to take our order, i had to walk up to the bar and ask. After that, not one waitress walked by to see if we needed anything, how the food was or if we wanted the check. Where did the good waitresses go?! See More

The service sucked and the Chicken Parm was alittle burnt and had no taste. Buffalo wings were ok but really small.

I've been going to Porky's on and off for years pretty much for their wings which are good and were traditionally cheaper than other wing places nearby. However today was my last visit. I ordered 75... wings for the Super Bowl. When I went to pick up the wings, they charged $30 MORE than what we paid for the same amount a few weeks ago. I understand that demand can increase the price but I was not told about the increase in price when I ordered. On top of that, the woman who was working the order copped an attitude when I questioned the price (I really thought I was being polite.) The bottom line is that it's just not worth the cash. The wings are good but not the best around, the building itself feels very low rent, and the staff has never been very friendly. On top of all of this you have better wings at competitive prices at Archie Moores or the Drew Drop Inn, both of which are less than 5 minutes away. I see no reason to ever go back to Porky's.

If I could've given 1/2 a star I would! Went there last night, first time and most definitely the last time! We were there to watch game 1 of the World Series and the 2 employees working were clearl...y not happy with having 20-30 customers on a Tuesday night. SERVICE WAS HORRIBLE and the attitude was even worse. A few people at our table ordered appetizers, and the waitress was very much aware that we would also be ordering dinner a little later after a few drinks. Well, we couldn't get the waitress' attention for close to 45 minutes. When she finally got to our table, we were informed that the kitchen closed at 9:30. She told us if we were hungry or thirsty we should have walked up to the bar and ordered something! Isn't that supposed to be her job ??? I will never go back to this place and will let everyone know about the bad attitude and service here. Very disappointed.... See More

My family and I enjoy going to Porky's but especially after my son's football games. The atmosphere is fun to be part of, the wings are delicious as is the pizza. My kids, husband and I have not had... a bad experience there, food or other, and look forward to going every week. I recommended checking out Porky's for good food, drink and good times! See More

I too was there for the mets game last night. Extremely sub par service, you would think bringing in 20 plus people for the evening and basically quadrupiling their Tuesday night business they would o...f been happy to make the extra money, but not at all. The wings were good (always have been) but not good enough to come back. Plenty of other bars in the area we should of went to watch the game. Next group outing we'll definitely be going to another bar. We should of just went to Bricks and Barley up the road. See More

We randomly stopped here for lunch and it was a pleasant surprise. The buffalo chicken cheese steak was a great combination of chicken, sauce, and cheese, and the waitress was nice! Glad I stopped by!
