we found this place by accident, just walking along the docks in key west. excellent oysters on the half shell. nothing spectacular about this place, but it was very relaxed and a good place to sit down for a drink or two. i believe there might be an attached indoor restaurant, but we never made it past the patio.

Had a really relaxing couple of Key Lime Martinis and oysters from the bar on the terrace. The martinis didn't taste overly alcoholic but were refreshing and the base breadcrumbs around the rim were a really nice touch. The oysters at $1 apiece were delicious and good value and are a perfect accompaniment to the oysters. A relaxing and restful... More

The White Tarpon is famous for their delicious Key Lime Martinis. The food, drinks and service are excellent as well. Definitely a place to check out when visiting. Don't leave without trying the key lime martini!

This is a quiet place for breakfast on the marina, good food. Salmon bagel recommended. Enjoyed chickens roaming at our feet.

Popped in for a drink and snack. Attractive from the outside and inside too. We sat at the bar...no happy hour offerings on food or drinks. We were one of the only ones in the place, but the bartender wasn't overly friendly or attentive. Not many offerings for appetizers. Loaded fries were disappointing.

Came in because of the sign out front that advertised their Key Lime Martini - totally excited that we did. Just came off a fishing charter and it tasted that much better. Amazing service - just had an appetizer (loaded fries) but they were delicious as well.

Best Key Lime martinis in Key West! Ray is the best bartender! I make it a stop every day when in Key West. This is our third trip and loved everyone one.

Nice little place in the midst of large restaurants. Oysters for $1.00 each. Three years ago they were $0.50 each. This seems to reflect the changes all over the Keys.

We met some great people, and happened to stop by this place. It was virtually empty without us, and a couple of other parties. They boast of the best Key Lime Martinis in Key West.... I beg to differ! It was okay. AND, WHY you would ever dump toppings on a plate all running together and place the chips on... More

Used to love going to this place, great bartenders, clientele, etc. Now bartenders are not great, no local clientele and we have to pay to park in lot, which we never had to do! Not only will we not go back, we will let all our friend know not to go either. Don't know what they are thinking!!! Sad.
