I always go to Schooner Wharf when in KW, but since I am NOT a seafood lover the food is just Okay. The bands and atmosphere make the trip there worth it.

This place is perfect for Key West. Excellent view and atmosphere for hanging out. Cruise ships are nearby and people are so nice. We sat at the bar, the bartender was very friendly and service was very good. Great place to tie one on...

Food and drinks were find, but wife and I were embarrassed to be Americans when we overheard one of the waitresses start her table welcome with "You know that we tip in American, so I'm just making sure that you know this before I start with your order. I only make money by your tips" She was speaking to a... More

We split an order of tuna nachos for lunch. It was a nice combination of flavors with the seaweed, the sauce and nice big pieces of tuna. We were told by some friends to see Michael McCloud play, but our timing was a little off.

This is a good place for lunch. My wife and i each had a sandwich and a few drinks and didn't spend $50. The place sits right on the bight and has a great island feel to it. The staff were very friendly and service was excellent. If you go look when Michael McCloud is playing and enjoy it even... More

I been living in the upper keys for 20 years. When I venture to Key West with a small or large group, we always stop at the SWB. Almost all of Key West is expensive, but there is a value to be found at SWB. Get into the keys mood. Slow down. Enjoy the boat/people watching. Listen to island themed... More

Visit Schooner to experience a slice of Key West history. Don't go if you want exceptional customer service or comfortable seating. They have great local and national bands playing nightly and seems to be a locals hangout with lots of touristy stuff.

The staff are always friendly and service is great. Drinks are great and cold. There is usually live music that plays cover tunes. They have a great happy hour. Great place to watch people.

We came in to see Michael McCloud at the Schooner Wharf and to cool off. We got frozen drinks which weren't particularly strong but good nonetheless. Had a great vibe and lots of locals sang along with McCloud- an overall great time!
