Don't be put off by B.O.'s appearance - the food is amazing! We split a grouper sandwich with key lime coleslaw and natural cut fries (with malt vinegar!) and had a delicious lunch. Prices are pretty outrageous - good sized (8") grouper sandwich and a decent portion of fries for $20 - but it was SO worth it!

My wife had blackened yellow fin snapper (fish of the day)…it was very good, but it was only one small thin piece; the black bean and rice side item was also very good. I had fried shrimp, which was good, but only 6 shrimp on top of a mound of fries. I go to fish restaurants for fish…not fries. I... More

Don't come to Key West without dropping in. Cool casual spot for the best grouper sandwich around & fries with malt vinegar - so yummy.

The fish sandwich one of the best I've ever had, crispy and light but full of flavor. The fries were crispy and fresh made me think of fair fries. A Lil expensive for the atmosphere, but worth going for and if i lived in kw I'd eat there regularly.

Good place to dine, mostly fried fish and fries, the food was good, fries could have been a little more crispy. It is very pricey but it is good. No cool air and must deall with the birds.

I found the initial review on yelp and it definiely lived up to what I expected. You may have to take a cab... More

BO's Fish Wagon is the place to go for fresh fish sandwiches and Key West funky island atmosphere. BO's was a "pop up" years before it was popular. The food is always fresh, the staff hospitable and accomodating. A locals favorite! If you don't like fish, no problem!!!! The burger is the BEST on the island, and hand formed, perfectly... More

$40 for 2 beers and 2 tasteless, paper thin grouper sandwiches, and service was slow and rather rude. I wonder if they were having an "off" day, since other guests seem to post good reviews?

Watch your meal being prepared from beginning to end. The seafood/fish is locally caught (not frozen crap) and hand prepared. Grilled, blackened or deep fried, they make it the way you want it. I think BO's Fish Wagon should be considered a "Must Do" when visiting Key West.
