If you're looking for the quintessential "we've been to Key West" restaurant, this is the place! Excellent bar/restaurant atmosphere, exactly what you would expect for an island/local place. It's open to the outside, atrium style, so no windows or walls. They had a live band playing, and they were very good! The food was also very good! Service = excellent! Prices = very good. Definitely a place you should visit when you're in Key West!

Our cab driver told us that Schooner Wharf Bar was the only bar that had live music at lunch time, so after we dropped our bags off at the hotel, we headed there. It was also on our Bar Card, so that was a plus. We had some trouble navigating to the place - my GPS kept sending us in circle, so if you are new to town, head down to Mallory Square, and then walk along the water until you come to Schooner Wharf Bar on the right. We had a nice lunch and some drinks. Michael McCloud was singing/playing, and it was a great way to start our vacation in Key West.

This bar exemplifies the Key West experience. Fantastic drink menu, live music covering Jimmy Buffett, zac brown band, etc. and an excellent atmosphere. We also bought some hand rolled cigars and cigarillos from the small kiosk within the bar. They are delicious. A must-stop on your next key west visit.

We loved the atmosphere and the live band were amazing .
We did encounter a problem when we decided to move table to be away from the food servers hatch and to a more comfortable spot with a better view of the band . One of the servers was not happy and then ignored us all evening.
The food whilst there was loads of it wasn't great at all the chips were soggy and the fish bland.
The location and atmosphere was great think it would be great to go for drinks and forget eating there .

I guess you get to the point where you just serve too many tourists and service becomes a very basic function. As a local, I visit the Wharf maybe three or more times a month. Food is ok and the view is excellent. Great place to relax and watch the business of Key West Bight. But when you have to ask three times to have the table cleared from the previous guests lunch, it has finally lost it's appeal. Sad, because it is such a great place to enjoy local events. Stop in for a beer, but I would skip table service.
