B.O.'s Fishwagon is an a la carte lunch and dinner restaurant. If you desire old school Key West, fresh fish without a lot of unnecessary frills this is the place to come. The best Grouper and Cracked Conch you've ever had. Step up to the counter, order, have a seat and wait for the most awesome food you've ever tasted to be delivered to your table. So good your mouth will be mad at you for not coming here before.

"Delicious Dive"

A really funky shack with a counter outside to order from. Many choices on the menu. Roosters and chickens joined us for lunch. Don't ask why, but we ordered the Hot Dog's which were brought to our table all dressed with condiments. on a very good large roll. The ho dog was large and tasty... read more

Wow this place is a must see. They have great burgers and fish sandwich. The lime aid drink is a must for key lime lovers.

The chicken is NOT local! Ha! The seafood is amazing, the band is nice, and crew are fun. A bar rail and very close to the Classic Harbor Line cruise, perfect!

Had some of the best Cracked Conch ever! Perfect batter and very very tender. Black beans/rice also especially good. For a shack it has the right atmosphere and location too. Loved to see the roosters strut in and out. Don't miss it.

While it appears to be a trash pile awaiting pickup, this is actually an exceptional casual dining fish restaurant with delicious and very large portions for the price. The sandwiches are what many, understandably, order, but don't pass up the conch fritters or, if they're available, the fish tacos.

B.O.'s is really a shack with great food! It's beyond casual with graffiti on the walls and chickens strolling in and out. The hamburgers were very good. The fish sandwiches, fried grouper and grilled hogfish, were excellent. The crisp coleslaw may be the freshest I've ever eaten! This is a great place with tons of personality!

Visited here with the family, including two preteens. It was a great way for the kids to get some Key West atmosphere without the chaos of Duvall Street. Chickens roam the property which seems more like a collection of walls propped up under a roof than an actual building. The food was great, though, and the place was fun enough... More

Can't rave enough about the food and people at this eccentrically exceptional little dining experience. Interior decoration is junky to say the least. The collection of this, that, the other thing, and a few of those makes a visit absolutely memorable and one that you will be describing to your friends for years to come. Add on a few.....well, maybe... More

This was recommended in our guide book and the fish sandwich definitely lived up to the description and tasted just as good. Roadworks outside made it a bit noisy but this cannot be blamed on the restaurant. Great service and local chickens wandering around the outside tables as well made for a great lunch stop.
