We have always enjoyed the White Tarpon. It's usually less crowed and more refined then the rest of KW. Cocktails are pricey but you can't beat the key lime martini. Craft 🍻beer and 🍷wine too. I was also pleased by the peel and eat 🍤shrimp and oysters. Fresh, delicious, nicely seasons And timely. In fact we came back one day... More

Had a great morning dive with Southpoint and was famished. The location was convenient and has a great view of the marina and water. Service was excellent!

This was my goto for a dozen of the best Gulf or Eastern Shore Oysters in Florida. Still good Oysters..but the 1/2 Chicken is the better value.

There are three sections: an open air bar, an inside bar and a deli, plus a wine shop. Right on the water, we sat it the open air part, the four of us ordered a dozen oysters, a couple of salads and a pound of peel and eat shrimp. Oh, yes, and Martinis - real martinis with gin and dry... More

Stopped for a quick walkable bite to eat as we were staying at The Galleon and did not want to eat at the Tiki Bar as smoking is allowed at that venue. The hamburger and shrimp tacos were ok and pretty typical bar fare. I suspect that the oysters are the real attraction, unfortunately I'm not a fan and can't... More

By far the best Key Lime and Expresso Martinis on the Island. The bartenders inside and out, especially Ray, are always friendly and helpful. The food is always fresh and tasty! If you find your way to A & B Marina make sure you stop here.

Found this place on Tripadvisor and reviews are spot on. Had oysters 3 out of 4 days in Key West. Small bar and much going on, but if you love oysters as I do, it is the perfect place. Fresh, chilled and quick. Great speedy shucker. I was there less than an hour each time but savored every minute of... More

If you are looking for oysters on the half shell and cold beer. The White Tarpon is the place to go with large oysters at $1 a piece. The deli is also a good place for breakfast and takeout. We like getting the antipasto ($16) and taking it back to the room. That way we have a meal ready anytime... More
