Great vibes

Great place to go grab a drink, they have someone making cigars there as well. Right on the water, live bands and you have access to all the cruise ships as well. We went there while we waited for our sunset cruise and grabbed cigars before we hit the water.

If you have not been to Schooners Wharf you are missing out. Always a great time there. Visit the Magic Bar..you will walk out feeling amazed! It's a must-do every time I visit Key West and this last time I had a couple friends that had never been there..they loved it..great drinks..great bands and great magician!!

Been here several times in the past with friends but this time I was alone. The waitress was great. The chef though overcooked the shrimp and undercooked the fries. I will return but not this trip.

Ordered one of my favorites dry rub Jamaican wings -- must be a new cook cause they were not the same - Worst part is they tried to pass off Mayo for Blue Cheese -- when I told the waitress she returned with RANCH -- said they were out of Blue Cheese -- If I wanted Ranch I would have... More

To quote the resident musician, Michael McCloud : There's over 300 bars in old Key West But the Schooners wharf Bar is the one I love best Dogs are welcome to bring their owners along for the ride There's ice cold beer and music and it's all outside We could and do sit there for hours in the sunshine, listening...

Great food, service and a good time visiting with the locals. Off the main path of all the other tourist. Will go back next time I'm in town.

We stopped by for a leisurely breakfast. My wife and I split a large 3 egg shrimp and feta omelet. The shrimp were plentiful and tasty. It came with rye toast made with bread from a local bakery. Everything was excellent. There was even live music playing in the background. I saw the short stack of pancakes with fruit. It... More

Local bar with gravel floor and picnic tables. Live music and a rooftop bar. If you are dining the rooftop is a must. You get a great view of the water. Great happy hour wine and beer specials. I ordered the shrimp BLT and asked for it as a wrap instead of a sandwhich and the kitchen gladly obliged. The... More

We could have hung out there to enjoy the laid back Key West crowd. Outdoor seating near the piers. Drinks were good, food above average. My husband loved the peel and eat shrimp. My fried coconut shrimp was not that great. Service was quick and friendly.
