“Great tequila and cocktails”
Reviewed March 17, 2014

Very friendly bartender, and very knowledgeable. The drinks were perfect. First time at the Agave, but we'll be back.

“One of the best in Key West”
Reviewed March 14, 2014

Agave 308 is the best bar in Key West. The food menu is great as it has similar items as it's sister restaurant Roof Top Cafe.

But the drink menu is what keeps us coming back. Jules tequila concoctions are absolutely delicious. My favorite is the Caliente Cucumber. There is a huge selection of tequilas of all types for sipping as well.

We highly recommend this as a stop to anyone vacationing in Key West or to any locals who have yet to stumble upon it.

“One tequila, two tequila, three tequila... even more!”
Reviewed February 6, 2014

Everyone thinks Margartiavilla is the place for margaritas in Key West, of course, but the locals know that's mostly for tourists. Don't get me wrong, Jimmy's a good guy- just not top notch. A good friend of mine from Key West, Beau, advised me that if I were a tequila snob/hipster- or if I just liked a good margarita- this was the place to go. And boy... he was right. I was skeptical, of course, having lived in Texas and having had good, real margaritas from time to time. But my concerns well misplaced. Excellent selection of tequilas, both for sipping and for making margaritas- and real margaritas, none of that premixed junk you get in a giant souvenir cup.

“Best margarita!”
Reviewed January 28, 2014

We stop by occasionally for a margarita. They are one of the best we have ever had. They call it a "Casa-rita," which is obviously the house margarita. It is simple: agave, fresh squeezed lime juice and tequila, which makes the best margarita! We have had a few different drinks, which are fun to try, but hard to drink the whole thing. The cucumber jalapeño martini was interesting, but hard to drink after a few sips. The infused tequilas are ok, but stick with the classics! The service is average. You can tell they are not big fans of tourists. The bartender was training a new employee the last time we visited. We asked for waters with our drinks. She explained to him, loud enough for us to hear, that "Tourists always get plastic, for obvious reasons." I am still unsure of the obvious reasons?

“The drinks are delicious”
Reviewed January 7, 2014

Great drink list, try any of their varieties of Margarita and you will be happy, cool ambience and easy location on front street. The day I was there the only thing that was less than great was a bit of a sour attitude and face on the blond female bartender, guess she really wasn't feeling work that day, that stuff just makes it a bit less fun for the guest, imo.
