“2 Cents for Thoughts”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2013

After seeing a movie at the Tropic Cinema, decided to grab a bite at this 'pub' just two blocks away. The bar was full with happy hour patrons and a bit loud. The menu has a wide variety of choices. Portions were healthy and price was right. The Scotch Quail eggs were very tasty. I especially liked the Acorn Squash smothered with garbanzo beans. Service was good, though I would suggest having a host greet guests upon arrival.

“Every bite was delicious”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2013 via mobile

This is just off Duval and it's terrific. Been there a few times on prior trips to Key West all were wonderful, just never got around to writing a review. So, this time I'll exercise my fingers while soaking up the sun. Let's start with cocktails, had their special vodka martini with some of the tastiest olives I've ever had and then a bubbly drink of prosecco, aperol, orange bitters and sparking water which is great! Then some starters, a quail Scottish egg, the sausage around the egg had Asian five spice giving it an Asian flair. Fried calamari was crispy and tasty as was the duck nachos. Then for my entree, there was a special with Cobia, a dense white fish like mahi, served over an acorn squash & pesto risotto. We were a table of 4 and 3 of us ordered it, and we were not disappointed. The risotto was creamy and delicious, the fish moist and seasoned just lightly to pair with the risotto. Definitely will go back again, they have a happy hour with bacon!

“Hip & Tasty”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2013

The drinks (both liquor or non-alcoholic) are so creative, using fresh herbs and homemade tonics. The onion rings are thin, crispy and salty with a tasty remoulade. I don't eat meat and only seafood that has had a happy life in the ocean so I was delighted to have the Shrimp succotash which is made with local Key West pinks. It was divine. I love the artful design.
If you sit at the bar you will leave with new friends. Everybody is super friendly.

“Great meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2013

Four of us went last Wednesday for Happy Hour and Dinner. Sat at the bar for HH and rolled the dice for each drink price. Paid full price on two beers, and only paid $1.00, $2.00 and half price for the others and two martinis. All in all a great deal!

Had dinner in the courtyard. My friend had the Barjack fish special, he said one of the best meals he ever had. My other half got the strip steak with hand cut fries, also cooked to perfection, I wanted apps for dinner, and ordered the bacon wrapped shrimp, chicken wings and homemade onion rings. All items were great and the onion "strings" were some of the best I've had. Our other friend had a portabella mushroom pasta. It was good, but he thought it had too much pasta and took away from the flavors somewhat. Our bartender and server both gave us great service.

I can't wait to return and enjoy their great HH and another great dinner!
