Fun bar close to our resort

We saw the back of this place from the window of our resort and that we give it a try. What a nice place. The staff was very friendly and the food was very good. Nice people watching spot on the front porch.

The first day we really enjoyed drinks...the bartender was sociable and made killer drinks...went back for quick dinner, pizza and burgers...the food wasn't very good! The waitress was sweet but not too attentive! Won't eat there again..

I came upon the Island Dogs Bar rather by accident while just walking with my family all around Key West. We were simply tired and hot and grabbed a little table outside on the "porch". I can't say anything about the food but we had mojitos and beer were refreshing and the waitress we had was one of the friendliest... More

We stopped off here for a mid afternoon cocktail and an appetizer. My wife and I sat outside. The service was very slow. We ordered the tuna tataki to share and we were glad we did. We eat this a lot in many different places and we both agree this is the best we have had anywhere. It came with... More

We were in key west for 4 days and had the wings for lunch on 3 of them and should have made it 4. Nice place to sit in the sun for lunch and beer.

On a busy day downtown we decided to give this place a shot. Great fish tacos and Micaila was friendly and attentive. We will have lunch here before our vacation ends. Great job!

The hot dogs are the best I have ever had. Better than Chicago dogs!! And that's a bold statement. The key lime pie is awesome!! Not the best key lime pie, but definitely up there. Worth a try. Staff is friendly. Mojitos are not great, Other drinks probably are good.

Stopped in KW on a cruise and BF, who'd never been there, wanted to go somewhere to get seafood. We had docked at the Navy pier, so we had to take the trolley into town. We got off and just started walking and this was the first place we saw. We sat outside and it was wonderful people watching. The... More
