Live Music!

This is one of the best spots to see live music on Duval. You sit right up next to the performer, makes it a great show as you are right in the action! The drink menu is solid, and they serve food as well. Most of the bar is open air, so it is a great Keys atmosphere.

We stopped in at Willie T's for a quick burger. Service was good and the food is decently priced which can be hard to find in KW at dinnertime. I highly recommend the blueberry mojito!

No matter what time you frequent Willie T's, there's always a great musician or band performing. My husband and I stopped in after dinner most evenings for drinks and music. The dance floor is small but always crowed. FUN,

Loved the music, which is constant throughout the day. The atmosphere with the 60,000 plus dollar bills all over the ceiling and walls is quite amazing to see. Enjoyed a pizza, which was very tasty. We will return.

Loved their lunch menu and the location is a fun atmosphere! Live music most of the time makes it a cool little place to stop in and have a bite to eat and a cold beverage!!

Stopped in here for a few after lunch frozen drinks. Music was fun with a friendly musician, the bartender was prompt and courteous, and the frozen strawberry pina colada was one of the best I've ever had
