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.

Go see, Dora! She rocks! Tasty appetizers and roof top deck! Located off Duval St, you get out of the madness. We watched the game in the bar.

“Your Belly Will Thank Me !!!”
Reviewed October 23, 2013

This is one of those places we always gravitate toward when we're in Key West.We stopped in for a light lunch the other day to watch some football and ordered the conch chowder and flatbread pizza with our bucket of beers.This chowder was absolutely unreal,jam packed with conch+veggies+spiced just right.Without a doubt the best I've had and the flat bread pizza was great also,FRESH mozzarella and basil with sliced tomato mmmmm.Although I'm not a big rum drinker(they'll have you more than covered if you are) I do love eating quality food when I'm on vacation and the Rum Barrel never lets us down,just don't walk by thinking it's all about rum because you'll miss out on some spectacular grub inside.Your belly will thank me!

“great view for people watching”
Reviewed October 21, 2013

Awesome rum selection, food was pretty average bar fare, would return if only to sit on the balcony and people watch and take in the atmosphere.

“Rum Lovers Paradise!!!”
Reviewed October 21, 2013

We stopped off here on a whim and fell in love with the place. The Rum selection is endless as well as the drink choices. I had a drink called the "Marooned" which quickly became one of my all time favorites. Our bartender (I'm sorry I forgot your name) was the best one we had in Key West. We really enjoyed her service and conversation. We had some smotherd fries that was out of this world good. We visited twice more during our stay.

“Omnomnom”
Reviewed October 12, 2013

Stopped for dinner last week and opted for the rooftop seating instead of the indoors. There was a nice breeze and it was fun to get to people watch as they walked about down below. Ordered a chicken philly cheesesteak and my friend got a burger. Food was delivered quickly and was delicious. Our waitress was sweet, funny, and attentive. Kids might get a kick out of the pirate theme. Laid back and casual as is most of the dining in Key West and off of Duval for a night where you might want something still close to the action but don't want to be directly on display. Not too hard on the purse-strings either.
