We had just checked in at the fabulous Truman Hotel up the street, and this was the first place we stopped at after the drive from Miami Beach. It set the tone for the rest of a great trip to Key West - awesome. It was the right place at the right time. Some good drinks and really good vibes. The waitress comp'd the second drink because she said she was slow bringing it. I didn't think so, but that was OK. And Key West just kept getting better and better.

Good place if you want a break from Key West seafood. We can't speak to the bar since we ate on the covered patio. Very pleasant since there was a shower that cooled things off . Good Irish comfort food like corned beef and cabbage, shepard's pie, and fish and chips in case you don't want that seaford break. We split a bowl of potato and leek soup that was top notch. Their pricing makes for a very good value. You won't leave hungry, that's for sure.

We stopped into McConnell's for lunch on our last day in Key West. I had the Fish & Chips and my friend had the Corned Beef & Cabbage! Both were perfect! Service wasn’t all that good for a Friday afternoon, but the food more than made up for it. The place itself was very clean and welcoming. I would definitely recommend this restaurant if you like authentic Irish cuisine! Prices were reasonable.

We actually stopped in twice for cocktails. On both occasions the bartenders were more interested in talking to other customers(which were not many) than serving a new one. The drinks were fine but I would anticipate that from a Irish bar. The female bartender that waited on us(thought she was an owner) seemed put out to wait on us and was so deeply involved in conversation she didn't notice us at the bar. She was also kind of short with us.

Nothing better than a cool stop with a draft Harp on a ninety degree day. Spent time with owner/prop Jerry, and his Old English Sheepdog. A great hour on Duval. And a bartender with a sweet authentic brogue. What could be better!
