Description: As the former owner of the Philadelphia 76ers, Pat Croce loves sports as much as he loves Key West. He combined these two passions into the Rum Barrel Bar and Grill, a local sports bar with a Key West twist. There’s something for everyone at the Rum Barrel. Whether you’d like to watch the game on our big screen TVs and have a drink at our fully stocked bar, enjoy a meal with family in the dining room or head up to the rooftop Quarterdeck for live music and scenic views, you’ll find a comfortable seat and a warm welcome waiting for you. The Rum Barrel’s menu isn’t just your average bar food. Culinary director Michael Shultz and chef Kevin Siford create an irresistible array of appetizers, sandwiches and entrees. Stop in for palate-pleasing favorites like Philly cheese steak sandwiches and queen conch fritters or sample unique specialties such as Joe’s Tug Mahi Mahi. Wash it all down with your choice from a vast selection of craft and specialty beers, signature cocktails and more than 150 different rums from our expansive bar. Join us at the Rum Barrel, where you’ll be among locals, visitors and sports fans who share your passion for good times and great food.

“Outstanding!”

We ate lunch on the roof. Waitress was awesome! Sweet potatoes were out of this world good. Everything else was very tasty as well. There was not one thing negative about our experience.

“Good Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2014

No wait to get in. Once we got in staff was a little short handed. Got our drinks and menu.. A little disappointed that what I had decided on that they no longer had but hadn't updated the menus. What I finally decided on getting was great. Decently priced.

“Wonderful Bar and Restaurant”

We enjoy going to the Rum Barrel because of the food and friendly staff. We actually spent our New Years there and had so much fun with the staff. They also have some great music.

“Eh.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2014

Average touristy bar. Average food. Large area for large groups; easily accommodated. Nothing spectacular; nothing bad.
