We enjoyed a few beers on a few occasions during our stay. The view is lovely, the bar unassuming and the food very decent. $2 bottles happy hour with a view worth a darn sight more!!

If you're looking for nothing more than a beer in that laid back, Key West-like ambiance, then you might like it here. It's a pretty bar by the harbor with lots of character and ample seating, including some small tables by the water. It is nevertheless a tourist trap with overpriced, sugary frozen drinks and live music by tired, talent-less... More

Our waiter was texting all the time, and actually totally forgot us twice! The food came eventually but it must have been 60 Minutes waiting time. There was rain that day, but I hope this was not the reason everything was so terrible. Don´t come here for the food. If you have to, get a drink...

Friendly fun people. Also, they usually have very good local bands that play evenings. Never fail to have a good time there.

My wife and I stopped by on a whim for dinner and it was a great time. My wife got fish tacos which we're amazing and I had a BLT which was great as well. The band was very good and the evening was made even better by our amazing server Edwin. He was right on top of refills and... More

I have been coming to Key West for more than thirty years. I now stay a short walk from the Schooner Wharf, because I spend more time here than in any other of the island's establishments. It is like no other, with an atmosphere that is relaxed to the horizontal. I am a writer and find the bar a rich... More

We have been coming down to Key West for the past 17 years, 4-5 times a year, and Schooners has always been a regular stop each time. For some reason, in the last couple of years, we have experienced a large amount of flies buzzing around, to the point that we spend more time swatting flies then eating our food.... More
