We ate here for dinner on a Tuesday evening around 6:30. It took a while to get seated, then we had to move because our table was apparently reserved. The table we moved to had a sofa on one side and chairs on the other. The chairs sat up really high and the sofa was super low, so that was... More

My wife and I, along with our friends from home, went to this bar as a part of the Key West Cocktail Challenge to satisfy our drink requirements there. But, it started to pour outside when we go there, so we decided to grab a bite to eat as well. All I can say is "Amazing"! The specialty hot dogs... More

My girlfriend and I decided to eat here for lunch as we were looking for an American-fare type joint, and we were very happy to have found this place. There is outdoor seating which is very neat in that you're right along the sidewalk and are in a prime position for people watching up and down the street. The area... More

My fiancé and I came into Island Dogs one afternoon while riding bikes around town to grab a quick bite...and left 6 hours later! We ended up making Island Dogs a stop every day of our vacation until we headed back home! The staff is attentive and hilarious -- the signature pizza, wings, and dogs are to die for --... More

Next to the Conch train, it has a great location. Menu was ok - pizza and hot dogs, but pricy for these items.

Situated on the hustling but not quite bustling Front Street, the Island dogs bar has tables out the front of the bar, allowing you to people watch as you eat your meal. I had the Caribbean burger which was delicious, whilst other members of my family had pizza, chicken and fish. Everyone enjoyed the food, the waitress was lovely and... More
