We choose Schooners because of a relatively good score on TripAdvisor, but ended up a bit disappointed. The waitress did not seem very friendly. I also noticed, and was disappointed in the excessive waste. Example: the basket of wrapped crackers that they set on your table when you arrive is completely tossed out when they clear the table! Also, after talking to some locals, it was "suggested" we not go back. Seems cleanliness is an issue, which was no surprise; the place itself was not picked up. We won't be going back.

We had a great time. The server was a riot, told us what to order and everything was really good. We watched the sun go down, listen to good music and had plenty of drinks that always seemed to show up before the last was empty. Pura Vida

Stopped by here for a bite to eat at lunch time.. Michael McCloud was playing guitar which was really a plus! His dry sense of humor in his lyrics keeps you listening and laughing. Margaritas were delicious and service good. Fish tacos and sandwiches were good. Dress is casual as are most places here.

If you are going for the food or service, don't expect a lot. We had a waitress question a 20% tip on our last visit. Go see Michael McCloud though. His music is fun and he is always joking around.

Loved this place. We were wandering around the docks and found this at the end and once we saw it was loaded with locals we knew we had to go in. It's all outside under the trees and tents with a good beer selection and live music.

WE lingered over a few beers, enjoyed watching the locals, and listening to the musician tell some interesting stories. There's an upstairs deck for sunset watching but the sun was blazing so we didnt' venture up there.

Saw lots of food being served but didnt try any. The bathrooms were surprisingly clean for key west standards although it did feel like you were peeing in the woods. LOL
