We had their $1 tacos on a Tuesday special. The chicken tacos were really good. DH said his beer was cold and cheap. Sat in the back bar with the locals, watching the World Cup. Overall, it was a good time.

Less crowded than Sloppy Joe's next door, friendly staff, good live music, reasonable prices. Get a table near the door and enjoy some great people watching!

One of the bartenders figured we wouldn't notice when I gave him a $20 for 2 beers and I got 50 cents back. He probably thought we were hammered since it was a weekend and it was pretty late. Well…we weren't. Funny how after I flagged him down 5 min later to tell him his oversight there was no questions... More

The bars in Key West can be pretty big. This one is the perfect size and more pub style than most, with live music and TVs over the bar. (I think I was the only one watching the Stanley Cup game, and was happy to have a great band playing.) Giant fans to keep the place cool, too.

The atmosphere, local décor, and service are way above average. As a matter of fact we stopped in twice during our visit just for a good Key West bar experience. It is so convenient to "cool your heels" while perusing all that Duval Street has to offer, especially on a warm day. Establishment had enough patrons to ensure it was... More

We have been to Key West many times and while we sometimes enjoy the raucous entertainment, sometimes it is nice to be able to take a load off, relax, and enjoy a good cold drink in a reasonably quite setting. One afternoon when in such a mood, we discovered the Lazy Gecko. There were only two bartenders and they had... More

This is one of SO many Key West bars and really doesn't have a lot to make it stand out. The food is average ( we had a wrap and a sandwich) and the service was good when we visited. There was a singer who interacted with the customers and joked around a lot. It was entertaining. While we were... More

It was a real hot one so I had to sit down inside and cool off. Ordered the fish dip and the corned beef sliders. Both were very good. The fish dip came with Cuban bread which was a nice change from the crackers some places serve and the sliders were more of a meal than an appetizer.
