As our last night in Key West was winding down we made one last stop for late snacks and drinks at the Island Dogs. Oysters were fantastic, college basketball was on the TVs and folks from near and far were enjoying life just like we were. The late hour on a week night contributed to a calm vibe, but I'm... More

Wanted to have two glasses of chardonney but the waitress came back telling that they have ran out of it. Instead she offered house wine which was cheaper (we asked the price). We were priced for Chardonnay after all and when asking about it were told that it's not the same label of Chardonnay we first ordered (we only ordered... More

Mike C, General Manager at Island Dogs Bar, responded to this review

I'm not exactly sure what you're saying but let me see if I can clarify. We have a house Chardonnay and a tier above house which is a little bit more money for a better wine. Our happy hour is only Monday-Friday so if you came on a Saturday or Sunday, the beer is full price. I do apologize if... More

This place is awesome, it lets you bring in your four-legged friend if you have one, and the food is ridiculously yummy! I recommend any of the dogs or fish tacos. They have a full bar and the patio opens up to the street so it's easy to people (and dog) watch.

Stopped for a drink while out shopping. Ended up staying for a few rounds. Bartender was great, even though he was mostly alone and the bar was busy, he was attentive. Only complaint, would have really liked to purchase a few t-shirts but gave up after asking twice and waitress couldn't be bothered. But overall, enjoyed the bar.

Seating inside was quiet, outside seating had a few tables but no view. You face another restaurant, on side street. Lobster roll was great, fries good, my hubby had a pizza, lobster-based sauce with ham and pineapple, a 10" generous for one person

We sat outside and enjoyed people watching. Dogs are allowed here and water bowls are provided for them. Live music inside was very nice. We ordered the lobster roll and carribean burger. I would pass on the burger, it wad just ok. The lobster roll was wonderful. $18 here and I know the conch shack sells it for $13 but... More

Thanks for the great review. Our Maine lobster roll is definitely one of our favorite dishes and definitely different from the typical mayo based roll. Served warm, sautéed in warm butter served on a New England split-top bun! Glad you enjoyed!! More

Four of went there for lunch. The waitress, Jessie Jo, began by screwing up half our drink order with the next table. After 50 minutes we asked about our food order. It was lost for some reason. She offered a 20% discount. When we got our food the jerk chicken was over cooked and tasteless, the Cobb salad was ok.... More

Today we walked around Key West with our 2 Golden Retrievers. The plan was to find a place that looked good and allowed dogs for lunch. Not always an easy task. We came across this restaurant and got a great seat overlooking the sidewalk. Service was excellent. Our waiter was prompt and he had a big bowl of ice water... More
