Stopped into this place & was completely ignored by wait staff. So I went to the bar to see if I could order from there & wasn't acknowledged after at least 5 minutes. Which, if the bar was busy, I actually would've waited longer. The bar wasn't really busy & the restaurant was even less busy. Walked across the street... More

This place is great. stumbles across it during a rain storm - everyone headed towards the "big name" places, and we opted for here. Sat outside on the porch and had a great sandwich and drinks.

The hostess was so busy throwing herself at a group of men that we never got acknowledged. We went across the street to Two Friends and it was amazing.

I apologize that you did not get the proper attention when arriving at Island Dogs. However, we do not have a hostess...We are a "come as you are, sit where you please" establishment. Regardless, you should have been greeted better. I hope you'll come back and give us another try. More

We ate the charred oysters at Island Dog and they were so good. We only ordered 6 with a couple of beers. I am not a big fan of oysters, only in New Orleans have I eaten them before. We were so bummed when they were gone, could have ordered 6 more. We sat out on the deck overlooking the... More

We stopped by on our first night in town for a quick bite to eat, and were pleasantly surprised by how good the food was. I had the fish and chips, which were excellent. Everyone in the group of 10 ordered different items and everyone was pleased. The service was excellent and the music and atmosphere relaxing. Very pleasantly surprised!!!

I am giving this bar 4 stars as it was the only one I saw while walking near Duval street that had tables outside. They are primarily 2 or 3 person tables and are set on a porch so a perfect spot for people watching. The bartender was very pleasant and made a decent drink. the waitress asked me upon... More

The oysters are the best I have eaten in Key West. Visited them twice during my week stay. The price is right. The seating arrangements are great, overlooking the Front street.
