I've had plenty of Bloody Mary's in Key West, and most are watered down with too much ice etc. I've finally found one that was nice and thick with a delicious salted rim at the Rum Barrel. I also recommend the Yellowtail Snapper dinner. Not over cooked, served in a light sauce and served with a side of very fresh... More

We are true Philly people, and this place had the BEST cheesesteak ever! Can't wait to get back for another! Didn't get served for about 20 minutes though. No sense of urgency!

Ok. So I am from the Philly area, which admittedly was the reason I first stopped at the Rum Barrel several years ago. But we come back here on every trip to Key West and it just keeps getting better. It's just a fun place to hang out, especially the rooftop bar. The service is great. The menu is varied... More

We go every time we are in Key West. We have eaten here for lunch, dinner and at the bar and never had a bad meal. We enjoy the atmosphere. We go during Phillies games and watch the game at the bar. I also love that a lot of the staff are from Philly. I hope to one day see... More

We ate lunch on the roof. Waitress was awesome! Sweet potatoes were out of this world good. Everything else was very tasty as well. There was not one thing negative about our experience.

No wait to get in. Once we got in staff was a little short handed. Got our drinks and menu.. A little disappointed that what I had decided on that they no longer had but hadn't updated the menus. What I finally decided on getting was great. Decently priced.

We enjoy going to the Rum Barrel because of the food and friendly staff. We actually spent our New Years there and had so much fun with the staff. They also have some great music.

We stopped in here because we heard someone singing and it lured us in to check it ! The staff are nice and the atmosphere was relaxing . I would highly recommend paying them a visit on your next trip to Key West.

As the former owner of the Philadelphia 76ers, Pat Croce loves sports as much as he loves Key West. He combined these two passions into the Rum Barrel Bar and Grill, a local sports bar with a Key West twist. There’s something for everyone at the Rum Barrel. Whether you’d like to watch the game on our big screen TVs and have a drink at our fully stocked bar, enjoy a meal with family in the dining room or head up to the rooftop Quarterdeck for live music and scenic views, you’ll find a comfortable seat and a warm welcome waiting for you. The Rum Barrel’s menu isn’t just your average bar food. Culinary director Michael Shultz and chef Kevin Siford create an irresistible array of appetizers, sandwiches and entrees. Stop in for palate-pleasing favorites like Philly cheese steak sandwiches and queen conch fritters or sample unique specialties such as Joe’s Tug Mahi Mahi. Wash it all down with your choice from a vast selection of craft and specialty beers, signature cocktails and more than 150 different rums from our expansive bar. Join us at the Rum Barrel, where you’ll be among locals, visitors and sports fans who share your passion for good times and great food.
