Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Stopped in at Rick's Downstairs for a couple of drinks.
The service was beyond horrible. Can't really mess up with beer, so no comments there.
There was an older man singing. Not bad....when he was singing. He mostly complained about tourists, made racist and sexist comments, then told us more than we needed to know about his hip replacement.
Many other places in town to spend your hard earned dollars. Don't waste them here.

We went to KW for vacation and to celebrate our anniversary. While there, we had to check out the legendary "Rick's". SHould have just skipped it.
We were scheduled for the pub crawl on Friday 9-29. We had some time to kill before the crawl, which started at 8, so we stopped into Rick's for a drink. We sat at the bar. The bartender was pretty rude and dismissive, which was puzzling as they were not really very busy at that point. The person playing his guitar and singing was not very good and was pretty foul mothed. We are far from being prudes, but constant F bombs for no real reason are not entertaining. We ignored him and made friends with some young guys who were there for a bachelor party, they were a hoot! They actually bought us a round which was very nice of them.
We left to go sign in for the pub crawl. As it turns out, the first stop on the crawl was Rick's. After we got our drink and sat down, the "entertainer" became more and more obnoxious. A group of women from Alabama were celebrating a birthday, and the birthday girl had an unusual name. Instead of taking the time to celebrate her birthday, he called her "whatever". Her group was upset and it appeared he was being racist.
When he found out where we were from, he decided that singing an insulting song about Pittsburgh and the Pittsburgh people and football team would be "fun" It wasn't fun, and there were others in our group who were insulted also. His foul mouth and insults were not entertaining, and we left with a very bad taste for Rick's. I don't know who this jerk was, but i am sure that Rick's management knows who they hired to sing at Ricks on 9-29 between 6-8:30 PM. I can take a joke as well as anyone, but mean spirited nasty behavior is not funny, it's just mean. There are plenty of entertainers in KW, Rick's should find one with a little more audience savvy than this DB.

We go to KW every year and make it a point to find out when Yo Adrian is playing at Rick's. Adrian sings, tells jokes and makes everyone feel welcome (in a very adult manner). Highly recommend.

Awesome music and a great dance floor. The best part of the place is the bartenders. Zoltan at the upstairs bar is THE MAN. He kept our drinks memorized and none of our large crew was ever waiting long for a refill. Great spot!!

Spending 10 days in Key West having a great time until we met the meanest and rudest bartender of all time. She was rude to all the customers that approached the bar. Some customers were laughing about how they weren’t even going to tip her. Several people walked out eventually including my group. I understand being short staffed and employees overwhelmed but she took her rudeness to a new level. Went to another bar and told them our experience and they knew exactly who we were talking about. Very unfortunate for Ricks if you’re losing business. Great entertainment there. Went next day and she was there again so passed right by. I’m sure most of you reading a review for here will know exactly who it is

This is the place to go when in Key West!! Our bartender, Errin not only made us feel at home but she made us feel like friends!! Can not fail to mention ‘Yo Adrian’ and his interactive songs.
They are both the reason we stayed here for hours and came back again the next day!

Love the place especially Errin in Rick's Downstairs and Teri at the Tree Bar.
My only issue is Derek Dunbar, the Sunday afternoon entertainment. He is VERY OFFENSIVE! His comments about only 50% of the people applauding as well as playing way too loud are NOT APPRECIATED! If he played a little better, a little lower and kept his rude comments to himself, maybe more people would clap and stay. On Sunday afternoons, most guests have 1 drink and leave

If you want a good drink for a reasonable price. Definitely come here. We ordered 2 Miami Vice ( definitely weren’t shy on the liquor) When we come back we’ll be stopping in there again.

The perfect party place for a group!!! The staff was amazing and the atmosphere was electrifying. They made our birthday girl feel special by announcing her birthday.
