First of all you won't find a more fun, attentive staff in Key West. Our server, Misty was absolutely wonderful, my cup was always full and she was so pleasant. The bartender, (Our servers daughter, who's name escapes me) was a blast, gave me excellent advice on others places to go. We even stopped in for just waters on a... More

Right on the water, good place to sit and watch the boats. They have an early morning happy hour until 12. Then another one at night. Nothing fancy, good place sit and chill.

When I first visited Schooners in the 1980's, it just had simple overturned boat for shade and a clear view of the wharf. That boat has been replaced since but the ambiance, the view, the music and old Key West vibe lives on. Whether you hear Michael playing there every day from 12-5, or catch Raven's amazing Johnny Cash impersonation... More

Classic Rock and Roll runs through the place all the time, with live music also on the menu. It is open air and right on the wharf. Where it has been for a loooooong time. And if beach boys (Al Jardine), treasure hunters (Mel Fisher) and TV personalities (Charles Kuralt) think it is good, then it must be - right?!?... More

The Schooner is one of the bars that are regular stops on our KW trips - with a perfect waterfront location at the downtown docks - it's the sbar to start off happy hour with - try the rum punch with a floater. Good food too.
