I could never visit Key West without at least one trip to the Schooner Wharf Bar for one of their wonderful Island Cosmos. It's a wondeful relaxing place to sit by the water enjoying a cocktail and listening to the live music. The food is great too and the service friendly. A Key West must visit.

A friend recommended we see The Doerfel Family band while in Key West so we went to Schooner Wharf Bar specifically for that purpose. It is a great place for live music and to people watch and they have great happy hour prices. A couple we chatted with tipped us off to ask for a bucket of ice to hold... More

We have been here before, it's dirty, the bums are on the periphery of the bar on the dock and in and out of the bathrooms and panhandling for you to buy them a drink and the management doesn't do a thing about it but we overlook it because they have good live music. We were there to see McCloud... More

Have been here several times over the years. Would NOT recommend the calimari, but generally, the food is good. Fun place to people watch!

Three quarters of pain gave way to euphoria with the Patriots win in the Super Bowl. There's no place I'd rather have watched it than in Schooner Wharf Bar! Locals brought in their own TV's to augment the bar's entertainment system. The beer was cold and brought in buckets. The appetizers were typical bar food, nothing extraordinary, but certainly satisfying.... More

Great food, drinks and music. Service was awesome! Tuna Nachos were the best. Made our family of 7 feel like we belonged to the Key West family.

Unfortunately it was the last day of our trip when we found this place, otherwise it would have been a daily destination! We had a fantastic server named Deanna, she treated us like she'd known us forever and thankfully recommended the Key lime martini which was probably the best drink(s) : ) I had the whole trip! Such a fun... More

Had super slow service when we ate lunch. 45 minutes to get a burger and fries, which were average at best. Frozen drinks are excellent. Drink service was good. Live entertainment in the early afternoon was also quite good. We went there several times for drinks and enjoyed it.

Schooner Wharf is a required stop when in Key West. I got to enjoy two meals there this trip! The food is great, the music is wonderfully entertaining, the drinks are cold and yummy, and the people watching is tops! Enjoy the rooftop if you are looking for some sunshine with your meal! The rum runners are delicious, the peel... More
