I LOVE this place!

Just back from a week in Key West, first evening we were there, we kind of "fell in" to this bar on our first night and it became a regular stop for the rest of the week. We sat at the bar, surrounded by some real friendly people, great live music, reasonably priced drinks - we didn't eat there... read more

Great bar, good vibe. Live music and great drinks. Didn't eat here as only went on last day of trip but food looked good. Shame I didn't find this bar earlier on in my trip.

We just had a drink and conch chowder for lunch. The music was playing and people watching was the game. Wherever you could fix a staple was covered by thousands of signed dollar bills. Good food, great atmosphere

You can't miss this bar in the middle of Duvall Street. Much of the restaurant is adorned with $1 bills! Good range of drinks with good service and great live music. A must-go place in Key West.

Nice layout with a small stage for acoustic performers/singers entertaining you. Very good servers who served well mixed drinks ie. Long Island Ice Tea. We had a grouper sandwich on cuban bread which was excellent. Take your turn stapling a autographed dollar bill to the facade - there are thousands of them - the place is wallpapered in money. We...

We always seem to find our way to Willie T's every time we are visiting the island. Never a planned stop like others but the live music right against the street draws us in. If you can grab one of the seats up against the railing it is one of the best spots on the island to people watch. Only... More

Had the "GRILLED TROPICAL MARINATED CHICKEN SANDWICH" and it was amazing!! Loved how flavorful it was!! The selection of Mojitos were great and a little character added with the sugar cane. Great affordable place on Duval in Key West!

We did not do any of the trams or trolleys this time. We walked Front St around the main area near the cruise dock and then down to the Southern Marker and back with some side streets in between. The feet were tired so the four of us decided to try Willie T's. A fun place. We sat outside under... More
