Nice wine selection by the glass. Very generous pours. The Saturday evening we were there they had an excellent singer/ guitarist singing an eclectic mix of Lyle Lovett, the Band, john prine , etc.

White Tarpon what a gem! Christina was awesome. She was friendly and on her toes shooting off suggestions to all what we were looking to find in Key West. We spun the wheel of tarpon and won multiply times so you know we had a good time. (TIP: let the ladies spin the wheel.) We had a fishing trip planned... More

We didn't eat here, but they have a great outdoor bar area and the best bartender on the island. Amy totally took care of us and made our visit a really good one. We'll definitely be going back.

I have been coming here for years whether with my husband, friends or solo. I used to recognize faces and knew the bartenders. They understood wine and knew my taste so were able to make suggestions. Bloody Mary Sunday with Tim was something to look forward to. Now I tend to stop only when Ramsey is working. The many changes... More

No crowds and no waiting! Breakfast is very good! Across the street from the Galleon Resort. They also have Boar's Head lunchmeat which makes great sandwiches to eat there or take back to your room!

Thank you Lonerider123 for taking the time to share the secret of White Tarpon Deli...no crowds and no waiting! Although, we may not be able to keep it under wraps much longer…with our new relaxing "sip and chat" lounge area where our guests can dine, read or just "chill" with one of Christina's Saturday and Sunday "Make Your Own" Bloody...

Went here for breakfast. I had the smoked salmon bagel and my fiance had the shrimp salad. The food was good but it wasn't anything special. It was just like what we can get at home, not really something we're looking for when we're on vacation. It might be better for dinner. I can see the appeal of their carryout... More

Went there for drinks after work with friends. I chose a bottle of wine after I heard someone order a drink & the girl behind the bar (black wavy hair) asked what was in it & my friends chose beers. How can you screw that up, right? Well we stayed long enough for 2 rounds because our bartender was NO... More

Been coming to Key West forever, every time we come one of our favorite things seems to be gone but seriously, this year takes the cake! We always come for New Years Eve, always go to the White Tarpon to spend our money and time with our favorite bartender Ramsey, well, not sure who thought it was a good idea... More

All day, every day 50cent oysters. Shucked right in front of you. Lots of sauce, horseradish and crackers. Bought bottles of wine from their deli and opened at our table. Excellent value. If you have a craving for oysters while in KW make sure you stop here.

Ramsey Kukes always makes you feel special the minute you walk in the door. Saddens me that this management decided to change her shifts
