We walked by this place a million times but never went in until we decided to try them for breakfast. It was really good and the people working there were very friendly. I would go back on my next trip.

This place is easy to miss sandwiched between two bigger establishments Alonzo's and Boathouse/Commodore. In fact on our fourth trip to KW this was our first time here. Most places offer happy hour till 630, the White Tarpon goes till 700- that's how we stumbled on it. The $1 oysters sold me. Not only were they reasonably priced but they... More

This location is actually a deli in one portion, a cocktail bar in one, and an outside bar in another. We opted for the little cocktail bar which was perfect. Its a quaint little set up with great service and best of all its off the beaten path. You can also sit outside in the shade with the cross breezes.... More

This little gem is at the marina, on the boardwalk between Alonzos and the Boathouse. There is a lovely covered patio to enjoy the view. When we visited last week oysters were $1 all day. Peel and eat shrimp were included in happy hour until 7PM. 1 lb. of large shrimp were less than $10 and along with 3 dozen... More

Denise at the main bar was awesome. My wife and I visited and like I told Denise, customer service goes a long way in our book. We had been to a few "recommended " places that fell short but this was the cats pajamas. The key lime martini is hands down the best. We also ate the antipasti plate- excellent.... More

Great food, always delicious and fresh. Chicken salad to die for. Oysters sweet and savory. Staff always polite and helpful in offering suggestions, especially Akon. Don't miss happy hour for fail specials, from 4-7pm.

5-6:30 $1 oysters, half off drinks, and great peal n eat shrimp. Nice covered outdoor patio at the marina with a great breeze. $30 got us 2doz oysters, 2 beers, and a pound of deliciously seasoned shrimp. Laid back, very casual, and not crowded because most people head to Alonzos happy hour next door. This was better in my opinion.... More

This is an annual tradition for us - hitting White Tarpon just before getting back on the Key West Express. We toast our trip with Key Lime Martinis and say our good byes until next year. The bartender (I think his name is Ray) is always friendly and entertaining.

Thank 340cruiser
