“Fun and good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 3, 2013

Stopped in for a quick drink and appetizers. Our group had the sweet potato fries, seared ahi tuna, and raw oysters. The ranch (homemade) was delicious and the oysters were some of the best we had ever had. Also, the atmosphere was open and fun with music and people. Quick, good service.

“Great Atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 27, 2013

I've been to key west twice now and this is always a staple of ours, but I think it depends on what you're looking for. Food wise, this is a good lunch spot or dinner if you're expecting something pretty good. If you're looking for a GREAT dinner in terms of food, then I don't think this is your place.

However, I love this place from a nightlife standpoint. Good live music and the bar is practically entirely outside. Just a really neat atmosphere and a great place to stop at for some drinks and to maybe get a dollar bill on the wall.

“Great place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 23, 2013

We got to Key West and we were starving we had a list of other places to eat but gave up looking and just walked in here. Atmosphere was nice service great a young man from Parma Ohio waited on us did a great job. Food was very good including the pizza we got for a child with us. Live music was nice, not so loud you couldn't carry on a conversation. I'l stop again.

I marked them low on price but it's Key West there are no good prices there.
Oh yes, they need to work on the conch fritters conch was tough.

“This place is nuts (in the good sense)”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 17, 2013

Is you are looking for a nice place to sit outside with a great atmosphere where laid back people congregate and the waiters, the bar tender and the band make the show, this is your place.
The decoration is one of a kind with dollar bills stapled everywhere (might be thousands of them laying around).
The drinks are abundant and the food is good, especially appetizers at a late afternoon.
Don't worry if it is a little cold to sit outside since they've got gas heaters everywhere.
