“Our new favorite Key West place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 14, 2013

I don't know about the deli part, but we went to the little outdoor area that is tucked underneath another restaurant. It is a nice open air space with a few tables and a musician playing music. We only knew it was there because when we ate dinner at Alonzo's and the oysters were ridiculously priced at $2 and $3 a piece, the server told us about the 50 cent oysters at White Tarpon. She acted like she was hush hush about telling us, but turns out, the same person/company owns both restaurants. So we actually went to eat oysters after dinner instead of before. They were awesome! Very nice size and plentiful. There is a guy shucking them right behind the bar, so they are so fresh! We enjoyed them so much that we went back two more times during the weekend. It is our new favorite, can't go to Key West without going there, place!

“So good we came back twice!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2013

Great oysters and shrimp, the tomato mozerella salad and the blueberry draft beer (with blueberries floating in it) all a great way to beat the heat. Right on the harbor and a guitarist that was just playing his heart and soul out even though when we went it wasn't terribly crowded. Very reasonably priced, came back with a crowd.

“Oysters and Drinks”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 3, 2013

We stopped in here on the way to eat at a nearby restaurant. We just wanted to try the oysters and have one drink before dinner. Once there we didn't want to leave. The oysters were delicious and our bartender Jonathan served the most wonderful drinks and kept us so entertained that we ended up staying til his shift ended 2 hours later. I highly recommend the martini's my husband and I each tried multiple types and everyone was more delicious than the last. This should be a stop in everyone's Key West trip. Look for Jonathan behind the bar enjoy the good times.

Found this place right after we had just paid 2.00 a piece for raw oysters! Decided to try them the next night and boy did we hit the jackpot!' They were fantastic! Live music, cold beer and great oysters! We loved it so much we returned the next night'

“Great breakfast”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 7, 2013

A cheap breakfast option with great otdoor seating and a killer con leche. It's hidden away under A&B so maybe tough to find. We had a coupon for 2 for 1 key lime martinis from when we did the scavenger hunt so we went back later!
