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!

It's like a throwback to the Keys many years ago. The food is very well prepared and almost all the staff are helpful. The pool is nice and the location convenient. At the bar near the pool, Butch was on the mark. We stayed away from the other guy (Scott?) because he was rude and surly. That is the only... More

Wow, what a great place. Went for Sunday football after our scuba diving in the morning. Great inside bar with A/C cranking, bartenders were fabulous. Outside bar was just as fun and it was great to be able to dip in the pool to cool off. Food was wonderful, recommend the mini corn dogs, sliders and wings. Oh and the... More

We drove down for a couple days of R&R from Miami, and we felt at home right away. Brenda took care of us from the very beginning, and helped us all weekend. Her breakfast burrito is unbelievable! Night time staff is excellent also, Gail and Mammy Mia were a hoot, and we loved talking with them. The room was perfectly... More
