“Put-in-Bay Music Festival”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013

We return for the Music, and to enjoy the audience. Yes, it is rowdy,but what else could be expected. This is the "theme" which packs the place with "northerner's"! We have been returning for years, and a little does go a long way, as they say. The "extra crispy fries" are unbelievably great!

“Must see”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013

The service was fantastic. The food was very good. The music was a bit stale for an afternoon. It was a bit pricey, but I would definitely go again.

“Touristy Joe”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

This place caters and is designed for tourists, pre mixed drinks in plastic cups, menu with pictures of the food and an adjacent souvenir shop selling sloppy joe tshirts and paraphernalia.
If you like the chilis/hard rock cafe type of places then this is the right place for you.
If you want a more genuine experience, you would be better off going to the perpendicular of Duvall street.

“Average Place”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

Stopped by this venue during my day tour in Key West and overall, I wasn't impressed. Visit the place only because it has historical significance for the area, but expect average bar food, overpriced drinks, and a large crowd with little seating available. Also, there is non-stop live entertainment (country type singing on stage). Considering the endless amount of neighboring bars with happy hour deals, this venue could stand lowering their prices a bit.
