Love visiting Cedar Key, and recently discovered the Black Dog Bar and Tables. Great beer list, wine, and drinks. Has a FANTASTIC deck that wraps around the place, tables, chairs to take in the great water views. It is not just on the water, it is literally ON the water, as it is on elevated pilings overhanging the ocean. We saw dolphins from the deck! Boats pulled up at the back at one point and ordered drinks (he had to lower down a bucket to give it to them!) Great owners, very personable, wonderful service, fun to talk to. Otis is the Black dog in the bar's name- very sweet and cuddly- my 5 year old loved him. We sat outside, listened to the band, and had a great time. Note that it is a cigar bar/smoking establishment, so the inside did have smokers. We are not smokers and don't like the smoke, but the outside was GREAT! would highly recommend this place despite the smoke!!! Can't say enough great things about it- great way to slow down to "Island time" and relax.

Visited Black Dog Bar and Tables this afternoon, and it is truly one of the coolest bars I've ever visited. Cedar Key, FL was a tiny bit rainy today and we slipped in there out of our golf cart. Met Otis the dog right away and he is fantastic. Met Connie, the owner. She is so very welcoming and warm, funny and sweet. You feel so welcomed into this town and this establishment. Inside the bar, it's very cozy and comfortable, very 'happening', trendy, cool and inviting. Anyone would feel at home and comfortable here, from age 9 to 90, seriously. The selectdion of beer is beyond words and we didn't even get to the wine list today. Great view of the water from the deck outside, too. It's right on sweet little Dock Street. Otis the Labradoodle is so sweet and polite. We were allowed to throw a ball for him inside today but ONLY because it was a light afternoon with only us as patrons. The dog is so behaved and obediant and would have stayed in the background had I not encouaraged him to play. It was my birthday today and being able to spend time with a warm and welcome owner and pet and play with Otis really made my day because I am missing my own dog. You will not regret visiting this special place. I will return! They don't technically have a menu, but she offered us a WONDERFUL dip and crackers, which was perfect. It's not a place to go have a meal, but that dip was fabulous. She heated it up for us, gave us crackers and some very fresh peanuts. Don't go there starving for food, that's not what it's about in there. Check out their Facebook page, it has great information.

...is the black dog, Otis!!
What a wonderful place to unwind after a busy week at work. We are weekly regulars from Howey-in-the-Hills and wouldn't go anywhere else to kick off our weekend. The Edge's and Otis greet you with a smile and a big " 'ELLO!" and have our favorite drink served before we take our seats. Great place and even greater people (and dog ;o)!

Since discovering Cedar Key earlier this year, Black Dog Bar & Tables has been our No. 1 entertainment destination in the area.
Owners Connie and Jay Edge always make us feel at home and always have an excellent selection of beer and wine for thirsty patrons. Their dog, Otis, is often on hand to greet thirsty patrons with a wag of the tail.
The atmosphere is unique: from the comfortable bar to couches to barber chairs, there's no shortage of spots go gather with your friends and enjoy an afternoon or evening. The deck surrounding Black Dog faces the Gulf of Mexico and is a great place to relax.
For cigar smokers, Jay and Connie have some of the finest stogies on hand for your smoking pleasure.
While I don't smoke cigars, I don't find the fact that others are indulging off-putting at all.
I recommend that you become friends with them on Facebook to keep up with the action, as they often have bands and the occasional fun contest.
One thing to keep in mind: They don't take credit cards, so make sure you have cash on hand.
