We liked the rustic outdoor atmosphere. The music was enjoyable. The drinks were a bit small. We had some amazing tuna nachos!

Seems a lot of tourists come here but it's the locals you want to go to this place with. Listen to their yarns about who paid how much for what boat, whose dinghy sunk, which woman which dumped what dude, and other great tales of the Keys. Nice beer selection, full bar, service with the sort of we're-at-a-pier you expect... More

I think the band playing really lends itself to my enjoyment of this place. We are listening to a local band called Raven Cooper play some great Janis Joplin, Tom Petty, Bob Dylan along with June Carter! She does a great job. We ordered Myan quesadilla and coconut shrimp. Both were good. I asked about their local drink special and... More

This local dive bar is right on the wharf in Key West, but you wouldn't know it sitting inside. I have no idea how old it is, but it has definitely not aged well. It's a great place to experience the way I'm sure life used to be before Key West became a tourist destination. Go for a cocktail or... More

We stopped by here for a lunch and was pleasantly surprised. One of the best tasting fish and chips I have ever had. Rustic place, no fancy service but great food and very pleasant athmosphere

We heard live music as we were biking by and decided to stop in for a quick drink and listen ... 3 hours later at the end of the set we left. Gary Hempsey was a quirky singer (ask to hear his tribute to Anna Nicole) that we really enjoyed and our waitress Deanna was fantastic!!! We had such a... More

Any visit to Key West must include a stop here. You cannot beat this Key West experience. If you want to enjoy a laid back afternoon, go here. Live music and great weather make this place a must see.

Although we frequent the venerable Schooner Wharf Bar primarily for the great entertainment and fun that Michael McCloud, Prof. Pete Peterson, and Capt. Carl Peachey provide on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays, we really love the food there. Their breakfast is simply one of the best values in town and the Schooner Omelette is as good or better than anything we've... More

We had so much fun the first time we went, we went back the next day again and saw an even better show! Drinks were good and reasonably priced. My wife had the conch fritters which she said were delicious. A very laid back bar to hang out at.

We stumbled upon this place blindly. We order some raw oysters, mahi-mahi, and beers. Prices were not outrageous and the atmosphere was laid back and relaxed. This is how a Key West vacation should be.
