“Coolest bar in Cedar Key. Heck, might even be the coolest bar on the Gulf Coast.”
Reviewed May 3, 2010

Black Dog Bar & Tables just has the best vibe about it - very relaxed, homey atmosphere - amplified by Connie & Jay's warm hospitality. Another reviewer stated it best when he said it was more like being in their home than in a public bar. The furnishings and decor stand out above any bar or restaurant in the area. There's nothing cliche or cookie-cutter about this place. Everyone there was so genuinely friendly...but not in a forced or in your face kind of way. I can't leave out Otis (or Otie for short) - the adorable & friendly black labradoodle makes his namesake that much more special when he comes over to your perch for a visit - or a lick. :) They had an amazing selection of beer (45 different kinds!), lots of wine & cigar choices, priced reasonably and with bend-over-backwards customer service. The outside deck wraps around the entire building with fantastic gulf views and breezes. Oh, and it may not seem like a big deal, but they have THE cleanest bar bathroom I've seen in my LIFE. Ladies, you know how important that is!! :) You won't soon forget your experience at Black Dog...and you'll only want to come back for more.

If you're looking for a great place to relax, with beautiful scenery and wonderful people, Black Dog Bar & Tables is it! You couldn't find nicer people or better ambience for Cedar Key. They have a great selection of wine and it's a must see for anyone traveling to Cedar Key.

“Once you go in, you won't want to leave”
Reviewed May 2, 2010

We stumbled upon Cedar Key after a dive trip and were looking for a nice and relaxing night. Luckily we found this wonderful and unique bar. We walked into Black Dog and didn't leave until several hours later. Jay and Connie are amazing hosts and it felt more like we were in their home rather than their bar. Otis is great and I would have fed him peanuts all night if I could! A trip to Cedar Key isn't complete without a stop by Black Dog Bar and Tables to see some great people and one awesome dog.

“Amazing find!”
Reviewed May 1, 2010

Black Dog was an unexpected and incredible find in Cedar Key. We had never been to the area before and now plan on making a yearly trip. Black Dog had great offerings at great prices and is worth the drive if you are travelling anywhere near this part of Florida. Thanks guys for making a couple of lost Alaskans feel like they were finally in paradise!

“Best Atmosphere in Cedar Key”
Reviewed April 30, 2010

When visiting Cedar Key, which should be on every seasoned travelers list of places to visit, make sure you stop and pay a visit to Jay and Connie at the Black Dog Bar & Tables

Funky little wine & cigar bar with a living room style atmosphere that has a big Labradoodle dog, which is where the bar got its name, wandering around looking for a friendly pat on the head

If the weather's nice, you can sit out on the balcony overlooking the Gulf of Mexico and if you're lucky, you might get to see the dolphins that swim past from time to time.

We recently stopped in to enjoy some beers and cigars and Jay, the owner was nice enough to find the Red Wing Hockey Playoff game for us on the satellite, something that a few other restaurants in town said they wouldnt do because the NASCAR race was on.

We wanted some food to go with the awesome selection of bottled beers from around the world and Connie brought over the phone book so we could order some Pizza from Island Pizza which delivered right to our couch in the bar!!!! Does it get any better than this??

If visiting Cedar Key, make sure you stop in for the best service, some of the best views and the BEST atmosphere in the whole town
