“Great sports bar with awesome food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

I've been to Key West a lot - and this is my favorite sports bar on the island. Plenty of tvs, great atmosphere and the food was great as well. Great place!

“Fun sports bar with good food, good drinks, and lots of TVs!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012 via mobile

Finally, we have found a fun, friendly sports bar in Key West!! The menu seems like typical bar food, but it is quite good!! We would recommend this spot to everyone looking to get away from the madness of Duval Street.

“GO-TO SPORTS BAR KEY WEST”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012

My sister-in-law found this Sports Bar so I could view my Alma Mater in a Bowl Game. Ambience - newish, clean, lots and lots of TVs, small nooks in which to watch your game. The wait staff was VERY accomdating and attentive. The clientel appeared to be tourist looking for their games to a local with a parrot. The pub-fare was tasty - Buffalo Wings, Potato Skins with a good selection of beers. This is a good place to kick up your feet, watch your game and savor some good beers and food.

“Very good sports bar but nothing special”

JDL is a classic sports bar. Tons of screens, banners, etc with your requisite wings and beer. They even had snow crabs so the food selection overall was very good. Happy hour was a dollar off all draft and bottled beer. The tv screens were focused mostly on the top game (in this case there was one major bowl game was on and not much else). The audio from the game was too loud in my opinion. The service was great and very accommodating for our group of nine. Our second waiter (after a shift change) was not too attentive or otherwise I would have given the service a 5. Not much else stands out as this could be any sports bar in the US. Certainly, there was nothing "Key West" about this bar other than the gentleman who ate dinner with a large parrot on his shoulder!
