As a resident of Pittsburgh, I saw online that this inn was owned by former Steeler Gary Dunn. After visiting Theater of the Sea we stayed overnight here. I'm glad that we did! A fantastic place all around, the rooms are absolutely beautiful. Great pool and views of the Gulf side. The Sports Pub is also very good, great place... More

We had a blast here! Stayed 2 nights on our way down to Key West! Great service, kind and helpful people! Tiny little place with 7 rooms makes you feel like you're home! Place is clean and friendly. Drinks are reasonable and bartenders are fun!!

My husband and I spent our honeymoon here 10 years ago and we go back every year. LOVE the place! The rooms are spotlessly clean, the food is great and the staff is outstanding! Can't wait to go again this year!

Can't say anything about the rooms because my husband and I just went to the pub. We were so hungry and they were the only ones we could find open late (10:00ish) and didnt know of anything since it was our first time in the Keys. And a lot of places close early down there. But if you're allergic to... More

The staff at the Ocean View Inn & Pub are awesome! Made us feel welcome the minute we walked in the door. The food was FANTASTIC and the bartenders AWESOME! The view from the bar and the dock was pretty. The room was a bit dated, but nice, the bed was extremely comfortable. The private patio outback was nice. Would... More

the building doesn't look like much from the front, but the rooms are nice and you have your own patio with nice landscaping around the back area. What a pleasant surprise. The outdoor bar and restaurant looks out at the water and is so relaxing. Great tunes playing in the bar. Nice swimming pool and a fire pit out in... More

Maybe bartenders should not run motels. Perhaps the people skills required to handle drunks at 3:00am (though this place seems to go all night and then start again early with hardly a beat in between) are not the same as those required of a hospitality employee. I say this because the bartender/acting-manager at the Ocean View (the O.V., as the... More

This bar is consistently one of my favorites in Islamorada. The outdoor bar is always an interesting mix of tourists, fishermen, and friendly locals. Bartenders were very attentive and friendly too, Chris was awesome! I always have the chicken wings, but all of their food is bar food variety and good! Casual, fun atmosphere. Go Steelers!

Locally this is Dunn's OV! What can I say...well if you are looking for that 5 star spa experience this is NOT for you...however, if you are looking for a down home, friendly, clean, great place to stay then this is it! Great room, great food, great employees, Shout out to Larz, Chris, Butch and Brenda for making this stay... More
