We passed this bar around noon. Already there was a great vibe! One guy was playing a nice set of golden oldies. Mostly Beatles stuff, and the likes of them. He was a good performer. Alongvwith some good food, great drinks and a very friendly staff. We spend here about two hours. Much longer then we first intended. But like... More

Spent a lot of time here during our 7 day stay. Music daily was awesome. Located just one block over from our B&B.

We stopped here twice for late night drinks and entertainment. The walls are covered with dollar bills . . . a la Kenny Chesney "Bar at the End of the World." They serve food but we didn't eat. My sister in law said her Pina Colada "wasn't the best" she's ever had. My wine was ok. The guys enjoyed their... More

Everything we had was delicious, from our appetizers to our cocktails we were never disappointed. They also have multiple live music entertainment all day and evening and all were great! This became a regular stop for us, either at some point during the day or sometime before our night was over. We were never disappointed.

Rib eye stake and a pizza between us, both very nice and at a good price. Service was good too. Worth staying afterwards for the live music in the bar area.

We stopped in and grabbed a table in the bar area. Note: Stools are not very steady. The band was funny and the atmosphere was nice but service was just ok. It seemed like there are so many tourist that they don't feel the need to focus on customer service, because their seats are filled regardless. This was the way... More

Stopped in for some water to cool down, a beer pick-me-up, and some great appetizers. Service was fast and efficient. Interesting atmosphere. They had a singer playing guitar while we were there that was perfect. Not so loud that you couldn't talk-which was great. The conch fritters were amazing and the calamari was cooked perfectly. Will visit again when we... More

Split a sandwich. Pleasantly surprised by quality. Mixed drinks a little pricey considering size of cup, but that is what you pay on Duval for the most part. Great entertainment during the day(Dallas Doctor). Will be back to visit next time in KW.

The food is basic and nothing to write home about, but the music is always great so it's a perfect place to stop and have a drink.

Went here on a beautiful evening in Key West. Covered outdoor seating while listening to a live band and eating dinner. Hard to beat that. My Conch Chowder bowl was good and her Gnocchi App. was fresh tasting. Our server, Michael H, was efficient though not too personable. He got the job done.

Thank MRVEGAS711
