You visit because it IS!

Recommended. We visited this place with locals commending it to us. You visit because it IS. The "decor" inside is unique: $1 bills, license plates, and autographed bras hang from the rafters. Don't believe us? Check out our photo's below.

It was like walking into a museum at Captain Tony's. The drinks were great and they had a wide variety of merchandise to purchase. My first name is Tony and I use to be a pilot so it was great to bring a group of friends there and take some pictures. The staff was real friendly and I can see... More

A local favorite with good local music, Captain Tony's is a staple here in Key West and a big part of our history.. Stop in and listen to some great local music and walk around in Captain Tony's to see lots of Key West history.. Another must if in Key West.

Most Parrotheads (Jimmy Buffett fans) will recognize Captain Tony from Jimmy's classic "Last Mango In Paris". The song highlights the exploits of Tony Tarracino and I can imagine the place really rocked when the iconic captain ran the joint. Today, the bar is a dark tavern decorated with dollar bills and bras - not really strange, if you spend any... More

You will need to go around across the street and around the corner from Sloppy Joes to get to the "Original Sloppy Joes", where Hemingway actually tipped back drinks and the actual place that he stole a urinal from the men's room to water his cats with behind his house. For decades it has been Captain Tony's, named for a... More

The only reason we went is because of the Jimmy Buffet song, and it was kind of cool. All the bras hanging, and Elvira's tomb. I wouldn't say it was a clean place. Dark and junky, but hey, you're in Key West.

If you like your weak drinks in plastic cups then this is the place for you! They demanded my drivers license before they would take my Amex card!! Well, since I was not driving I did not have one. I had to post our surly waiter in cash. I will not be back

Went to see the place Jimmy got his start and find out about Capt. Tony, a real key west working class celebrity. 5 stars for history alone. Great old taverns are hard to come by. If my foot stepped in just one place that Hemingway, Kennedy, or Buffett stood or sat...the trip was worth it. Treated great by bartenders and... More
