“terrific outddor area”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2013

Cold beer, blah food, surly bartenders, fantastic live music, did I mention cold beer? Great place to hang out when the cruise ships are not in port.

“Great place to grab our first drinks on Key West”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2013

Can't speak to the rest of the menu, but the oysters and beers we had there hit the spot. It was the first bar I visited on Key West, and it was also my fiance's first bar visit on the island when she first visited the area. I liked walking past the group of colorful chickens on the way to the half-indoor/half-outdoor bar. Service was good and fast, but we didn't require much attention. Place was pretty packed and humming before noon...

“Hog's Brew”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2013

Stopped there for a few brews and enjoyed Hog's Breath beer and margaritas. There was live music playing and the crowd was friendly and enjoying the afternoon there.

Had to purchase a T-shirt from this bar and restaurant. Will return there next year for sure!

“Did not match our expectations”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

Seems like everyone in Key West has a Hog'Breath t shirt, it is advertised everywhere, seems very lively at night...we thought it must be a fabulous place.
The reservations system makes no sense. There is a Hostess stand, sort of, but she asks for no names and it is rather hit and miss. We came in and asked if we could sit in a just emptied table and she toldus to go right over.By the looks of others, I think they were ahead of us. She did not seem bothered at all.I saw others enter off the street, sit at a table and nothing was said.
My husband had the shrimp skewer and it was mediocre.I had the pulled porkand I have never seen pork come in a bun (dry) with a bottle of bbq sauce on the side. Really???
Not worth the hype!
Won't be back.

“Interesting ambience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2013

Good food, reasonably priced, large selection.

Little noisy, tables close together, and smokers permeated the entire restaurant, even when inside.
