Description: As the former owner of the Philadelphia 76ers, Pat Croce loves sports as much as he loves Key West. He combined these two passions into the Rum Barrel Bar and Grill, a local sports bar with a Key West twist. There’s something for everyone at the Rum Barrel. Whether you’d like to watch the game on our big screen TVs and have a drink at our fully stocked bar, enjoy a meal with family in the dining room or head up to the rooftop Quarterdeck for live music and scenic views, you’ll find a comfortable seat and a warm welcome waiting for you. The Rum Barrel’s menu isn’t just your average bar food. Culinary director Michael Shultz and chef Kevin Siford create an irresistible array of appetizers, sandwiches and entrees. Stop in for palate-pleasing favorites like Philly cheese steak sandwiches and queen conch fritters or sample unique specialties such as Joe’s Tug Mahi Mahi. Wash it all down with your choice from a vast selection of craft and specialty beers, signature cocktails and more than 150 different rums from our expansive bar. Join us at the Rum Barrel, where you’ll be among locals, visitors and sports fans who share your passion for good times and great food.

If you're a rum drinker this is the place to go, if not this is still the place to go.

They have a very large selection of rum, they used to have a list that was called the Rum Bible but apparently someone thought it'd make for a nice souviner and stoled it. It kind of took the fun out of deciding on which rums to try. The bartender tired to be helpful.

The service was great, the atmosphere is fun with just the right amount of a pirate theme. Drinks were Awesome!

Location is nice and the bar area is surrounded by windows for great people watching!

We first stopped for lunch while we were out for a walk. We ate at the bar and shared crab cakes (very good) and nachos with barbecued pork (also good). The drink was a good pour. We went back a couple of days later for dinner and ate on the "quarter deck" rooftop area. We had hamburgers, which were done very well on buns that were superior. The specialty drink wasn't anything to rave about, but the atmosphere is quite nice and the food good.

We had lunch at the Rum Barrel on a Saturday afternoon. It was quiet and had a very relaxed atmosphere due to the time of day. We ordered two drafts. They offer 18 different draft beers. Most are $4 for a large glass. The beer was served quickly and very cold. Our waitress was very helpful and a fun person.

We ordered the Signature Burger and the Cuban Burger. They were both quite good but the Sigature FA Burger was our favorite. It was a large burger with bacon, cheese, lettuce, tomato and onion cooked to order. Each burger included a large serving of french fries. The burgers average price is $11 but they are huge.

They offer a full menu with some very interesting dishes. We plan to return and sample some of the other items.

They have roof top seating or indoor seating. There is a live band most evening and the place gets quite lively. We will definitely return to this fun place in the future.

I was at a B&B and wanted delivery. They were quick and food was real good. I had the Lobster pot pie w/salad; and Pink peel and eat shrimp. Hot food was hot and cold was cold. No complaints.
