Every time I go to Key West I go to this bar. It's a hidden gem within the marina. It started off that we would go while waiting to board the boat tours we've booked, but now it's a real go-to. The bartenders make amazing drinks and the food is great too!

THEY ARE EXCELLENT!!! I can't speak for the food because we just stopped in to try one of the key lime pie martinis but we stayed for a few! If you are in the Conch Republic, you have to stop by and try one of these!

My friend was gushing about this place so of course we had to go. It was pretty good. 50cent oysters and great shrimp specials. They had amazing drinks as well. Will definitely be going back.

This used to be one of my favorite places for sandwiches when going boating but now it's just average. The staff can be nice but they can also be surly and the prices are pretty high. The food is fine but nothing exceptional. If you are in that end of the Island and need quick food, it's ok but don't... More

Yes, yes & yes! This place rocks. Amazing happy hour, oysters and drinks. The staff here is extremely knowledgable and friendly, it's hard to actually leave this place. They are known for their signature Key Lime Martini but all of their drinks are delicious. Keep an eye out for their bloody Mary bar, and any live music. This is an... More

This was our first visit to the White Tarpon Deli since the change over from the previous ownership called Damn Good Food To Go. We were hoping that the menu would be sort of the same, it is not. The menu is rather limited to say the least, and what I did have was not very memorable. My wife had... More

If you want to sit down and relax, before or after Happy Hour on the waterfront, this is the spot. Allie, the bartender, makes the best Key Lime martinis on the island, and Manager, William Smith offers personable service in a sophisticated setting.
