Right near the docks on Key West Bight, this has great drinks and happy hour specials. We tried the sangria this trip and it was phenomenal! You can't go without order their "crack" bread (it's addictive) and Conch Fritters too. Very friendly service too!

Needless to say we ended up leaving. The hostess seem to not even care. This is very bad for business. I would give it a -10 if I could.
