Stopped in for a drink in the afternoon. Only a few people in the place, we sat at the bar and got a nice warm beer and a rude bartender. Plenty of other places happy to take your money!

This was a great experience. It's definitely nothing fancy but it's fun. We walked in and were greeted by a bunch of "ARR"s as we entered a crowd of people having a good time. They sell fun pirate hats and eyepatches so anyone can join in the pirate spirited fun. The music was awesome. The live band was great. I... More

We went here twice. We went back our last night because we wanted to see the house band "Mark Panteleone". He's a kick butt guitar player. The three guys play so well together. Great music. I love that its not as crowded as Tropical Isle and the vibe is different. Same drinks as the other two Tropical Isle bars, but... More

Came to the Funky Pirate because as we walked by the music drew us in. This place gets busy so you might have to wait a bit for a seat. The drinks were cold and strong and we didn't have to wait for those. The music was some of the best we had heard on our trip... period. Big Al'... More

Yet another excellent musical experience. Some local band playing all sorts of blues/bluesrock. A random fellow suddenly coughed up a harmonica and really rocked the joint. I think his name was Jim. Less one star for beer in a plastic cup.

We meet people form all around the US & several form different countries. This is also the home of Big Al Carson & The Blues Masters, he plays... More

Great music, great atmosphere...just big enough. Service is great...Big Al Carson is the best, but all the music we heard there was awesome. Highly recommend, especially if you love Blues.

Great music... Easy to get to, but definitely a higher number of drinks being in the Quarter. Drinks were reasonably priced. I would really only go back for the music.
