Been coming here since 1998. Our many dollars still on wall. Excellent food. Outdoor seating is a plus if you have a pet. Still the best pizza.

Great spot for a late lunch after a morning at Bahia Honda. Both the food and service are always on point. Doesn’t hurt that our kids love the pizza as well! Can never go wrong!

Torn between a 4 and a 5. Food was average, server was excellent. Very personable. Cool setting. Key deer hanging around outside. Key lime pie was good. Mexican pizza was great. Shrimp pizza with garlic was good. Barbecue was no good.

I don't know how anyone visiting the Florida Keys should miss a visit to No Name Pub .No matter how many times I visit I always enjoy the ambience, the energy of the crowd and most of all, the food. Best pizza, fresh seafood, cold...beer and a great souvenir shop.More

People who are vacationing in the Keys need to understand a little about what they are getting into. The kind of service you are used to getting in any mainland city is pretty rare in the Keys. That is because it is expensive to live...there, and server/staff wages are not enough to live on in the Keys. As a result, servers in the Keys are likely to be handling more customers than their mainland counterparts would, on average. This was aggravated recently by two things: Hurricane Irma, and COVID. These factors greatly reduced the availability of affordable housing in the Keys and the number of service employees in the Keys, to the extent that as recently as last year it was common to see "help wanted" signs that said "housing provided." When I visited Robbie's Marina last year, they had several camper trailers set up in the parking lot as staff quarters so they could keep things running. Again, last year, on our way out of the keys to drive home, we looked for some place to find dinner; we were turned away from a couple places because they had to close early due to not having enough staff. That said, we found the No Name Pub last night on an excursion into to the lower keys. We decided to eat there since it was obviously open, rather than try our luck looking for some other place that was still open. We expected the usual Keys service, but were pleasantly surprised with prompt service, despite the place being quite busy. The appetizer (conch fritters) arrived in minutes after ordering, perfectly cooked (actually the best I've had). Our sandwiches arrived before the appetizer was gone. The servers cooperated to make sure food got out, regardless of who took the order. This level of service would be good for most places, but for the Keys it was very impressive, and I've never seen anything like it in my 35 yrs of visiting the Keys (and I have walked out of places for inexcusably bad service). So I give the kitchen staff and servers five stars. The food was good, worth the prices being charged. We ate outside in their covered back area. I would say they could stand to increase air circulation both to improve comfort and hopefully blow away insects. But eating outside in mid-July in the Keys in the late afternoon comes with heat and bugs, so I expected that. I read in other reviews about the host being rude, and the awkward way in which you get seated; I can understand that. The host (a young man) was not rude to us at all, but he was clearly very busy - and alone - trying to accommodate people and doing his best given that several groups had arrived at about the same time. When it comes to the Keys, be patient, and expect a bit of quirkiness. There are so many things to enjoy there, why ruin your visit being upset at overworked affordable restaurant staff.More

We arrived just a few minutes after Noon on a Wednesday with a party of 8, so we were asked if we would like to sit outside to be seated right away. It was a very hot day, but the ceiling fans made eating outdoors...tolerable. Burgers and pizza are definitely the best choices but the grilled yellow fin tuns was also very good. The fried grouper was more breading than fish, but the fish inside the dark crust was excellent. Bigger plastic cups would be nice.More

The rudest staff ever! My family and I stopped here for lunch on 4th of July. The sign outside said to wait for the host to seat you. After waiting outside for several minutes, I went inside. I was met by an extremely rude young...lady who said take a seat at the bar or wait outside for the host. I told her we had been waiting and no one came out. She said she didn’t know where she was and kept reiterating the same thing - sit by bar or wait outside - no help at all! The pub wasn’t busy at all. A couple came in behind us and experienced the same terrible treatment and left too. I would never try to go here again. There’s no need to be rude. In no way could ever recommend to anyone.More

Horrible service. I went with my family expecting a nice meal after a long trip through Florida. We waited outside like the sign suggested and a host never came to seat us. After baking like fish on a dock for about 20 minutes another couple...came in and left shortly arguing with the hostess inside that refused to sit us. The couple and our family left because of how rude and apathetic the staff was. Wouldn’t recommend to anyone.More

If you like bar food, this place is ok at best. If you want good food, especially for the price, go anywhere else. We started with their fish dip. To say it was horrible was an understatement. It tasted like canned tuna fish. One bite...and I was done. When our main meals arrived it didn't get any better. I had the shrimp basket and it completely lacked any flavor. It was like a panko batter with no seasoning. The rest of my family experienced the same. The waitress was friendly but too busy to keep up with everyone. There were many times the table was left without any drinks. Keep in mind they use small plastic cups. They say this place is hard to find. Well, it would be better if you didn't find it at all.More

Three of us drove up Saturday May 21st from Key West to have some well overdue NNP grub and it definitely didn't disappoint! We've been coming here for years and we've always loved it, but we were particularly impressed this go-around with the service and...attention to detail from the crew. James the host was friendly and very communicative about when we would be seated. (I wish we could hire a host like him where I work on Duval!) Jess was our server and she was just as awesome. We had fish dip and clam strips as an app...both are consistently good every time we come! We normally opt for the bar but it was nice to sit outside under the tiki. Sangria was great as always. Pizza? Phenomenal. Always. Like I said, been coming here on and off for years but this experience was the best we've had. Thanks NNP and staff!More

I am truly not hard to please, as manifested by previous reviews. This place is an overrated tourist trap. Do not come here hungry. I do not like fishy, but I do love lobster. There is a smoked fish dip. I asked, “Is it fishy,...can I try a small sample?” and received an adamant answer, “No!.” OK, we will take the lobster dip. I have never known lobster to taste fishy. Fishiest, nastiest dip I have ever had in my life. I mentioned to her it was fishy, and she said “Well, it is lobster.” Perhaps she has never tasted great lobster, I have and in my experience, lobster is not fishy. It is lobster. In any event, if you just want to put a notch on your belt buckle, stop in. On second thought, it is hard to screw up drinks. Just stop in and have drinks! Absolutely worth the effort to get here because the Key Deer are so cute. Stop and buy them a nice loaf of sourdough and feed it to them. Not sure if that is legal and not saying I did it, check the law for yourself:)More

The fish dip was really tasty, but as others have mentioned, they give you only a few cracker packets and charge you for more. For almost $12 for fish dip, there should be sufficient crackers included with the price and you shouldn’t be charged if...you want more. The bar only serves beer and wine based cocktails. I ordered the sangria. It was mediocre, at best. It was also not cold, so is obviously stored not refrigerated. I had to allow it to sit in the ice to become cold enough, and then of course, it became watered down. The host was super friendly and sweet. That’s where the friendliness stopped. My server did a decent job, but they were less than friendly or welcoming. I don’t think I saw one smile from her. The word I would use for the service would be perfunctory. I don’t know if this was because I was alone, but being nicer and friendlier would make someone want to come back. The staff were interacting just fine with each other, but I did not feel at all welcomed and because of that have no desire to come back.More

Food was good, seating was slow(there were plenty of open seats, so maybe a shortage of help). Ordered the fish dip (their signature) comes out with 4 or maybe 5 cracker packets, when I asked for more packets of crackers they said there would be...an additional charge of $0.50. Not a big deal, but you would think that for 11.95 fish dip you would have had more that 5 packets of crackers. As mentioned pizza was good, food came out in a reasonable time. One of the members of our party noticed on the receipt another up charge as well.More
