Need a shot and a beer at lunch? A Painkiller to start happy hour? Tequila with your steak and egg breakfast sandwich? This is the place. All served in the finest Key West stemware. (A plastic cup). Good prices for Key West, local bartenders who will buy you a beer if they know you, and live music almost any time... More

This is my favorite place in Key West. It's so great to listen to the live music while watching the boats come in and out of the marina. The staff treats you like friends. The vibe is so laid back. I love this place!

I've never written a review for Schooner Wharf because I figured, it didn't need one. This place is what you make of it. For us, it defines Key West. We have made friends with bartenders and servers over the years, and we always look forward to coming "home" and seeing them again. We've had great meals here (yep, we think... More

After years of visiting Key West, we stopped in here for dinner and were pleasantly surprised! We were expecting (and would have been fine with) bar food and draft beer. But the menu ranged from bar food up to a seared tuna "nacho" dish that, if it hadn't been served on a paper plate, would not have been out-of-place at... More

Stopped in for a few beers and appetizers after fishing all day. The food was good and the atmosphere was great. They had a great duo on stage singing classics. The service wasn't great but the atmosphere and island time made up for it.

Some of the largest shrimp I've ever been served and the oysters were fresh and delicious. I really enjoyed the entertainment, food and drinks everything was wonderful. great... More
