Nothing like the old Schooner Wharf Bar!

LOVE the Schooner Wharf Bar in Key West. The people, the food, the servers, the laid back atmosphere, the music and of course, the dogs! We always go when Michael McCloud is playing.....he is a local treasure and quite the entertainer and story teller. If you want a taste of old Key West, this is... read more

We love eating by the water. Good food, nice people, not everyone will like this place. Nothing fancy at all about it. Just a bar where you can relax, eat & drink and have fun.

Schooner Wharf became our 'local' when we spent a week in Key West in January. At any time of day it is just lovely. Right on the water, there are boats of every shape and size pottering about. There is amazing live music throughout the day, the food is superb, drinks are great - and the service is excellent. There... More

Great fish sandwich & tarter sauce was from scratch, yum! 2nd visit, we went to the rooftop, was very busy so service not as good and food has to come a long way, probably just drinks would have...

A fun place to experience old Key West atmosphere. Right on the docks in old town. Music daily, good food, and fun for all.

They follow the KISS method of "keep it simple stupid". This results in good food, reasonable prices, and great atmosphere. Guests ALWAYS enjoy the experience

We went there for lunch 3 times, all on days when Michael Mc Cloud was performing (Wed. - Sun., noon to 5.) He, along with his dog, Cinderell, are fixtures there. I think Michael said he's been performing there 3 decades or so. I found Michael to be very entertaining. He has a great voice, puts his own, unique touch... More

Love this place, always go here when in KW. Fresh fish, with a side of honky tonk! Great location, where else can you eat Mahi Mahi on paper plates with plastic silverware!

We found when walking boardwalk area. Live music caught our attention, Very casual 'Key West' décor / environment, with good food and good service. We really enjoyed female vocalist who also played her guitar- did not get her name but very talented with great repertoire of songs. The band that followed was OK, but their music was not to our...

Have been here twice on this trip to Key West. Service is always attentive. These folks seem like seasoned employees who know how to get you your meal quickly with a smile. I went with a group of friends who came into town for the night. One was a "newbie" to Key West, so we decided to go to Schooner... More
