This is an annual tradition for us - hitting White Tarpon just before getting back on the Key West Express. We toast our trip with Key Lime Martinis and say our good byes until next year. The bartender (I think his name is Ray) is always friendly and entertaining.

One gentleman shucking expertly oysters for a large crowd of happy hour patrons. He kept up with the demand. Very fresh tasting oysters. The key lime martini was very sweet. The glass was rimmed with graham cracker that made you think you were eating key lime pie! Very nice setting right on the waterfront between the Boathouse and A&B Lobsterhouse.... More

This is place is accessible by foot, boat, or car. Small but charming and tucked away beside A&B Lobster House Restaurant. The food service is quick and easy whether grabbing a table or carrying out. Check out the large wine selection.

Great happy hour prices. Right by the marina, have a dozen oysters shucked before your eyes for $6 before the boat ride. Enjoy people watching on the boardwalk while you wait.

Very nice little place right next to Alonzo's. Have read some negative reviews about the place, but our experience was not bad at all. The only issue was a bar tender- young girl - who seemed very distracted as she had friends at the bar - it was lunch time, and the place was not packed, so it was no... More

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!
