Favorite bar/eating establishment my husband and I visited during our recent trip to Key West! It is a little divey and has tons of interesting stuff on the walls showing the history of the place. It is open air and right on the water in the marina. Great beer selection and we loved the oysters and peel-and-eat shrimp! Fun tip... More

Just don't look behind the scenes, it is literally a Shack. Its put together with1000 of different items. Umbrellas, shade cloth and bits and pieces. left over concrete poured onto the ground. But what a Buzz !! Fantastic live music, food was great, drinks were well priced and the atmosphere was amazing. Just don't use their toilet. Its an adventure... More

Usually quite crowded, as the music is good. Ambiance is of old Key West - quite funky but fun and casual. Food and service can vary, but worth the stop.

Cheap plastic chairs...gravel, uneven outdoor flooring, and plastic sheets serving as the roof. Yes...this is Schooner Warf Bar and IT IS ONE OF MY FAVORITES! You must stop in here....the music is wonderful (they have an awesome afternoon house band that is great...music 7 days per week). Food is surprisingly good. Drinks flow...

I could never visit Key West without at least one trip to the Schooner Wharf Bar for one of their wonderful Island Cosmos. It's a wondeful relaxing place to sit by the water enjoying a cocktail and listening to the live music. The food is great too and the service friendly. A Key West must visit.

A friend recommended we see The Doerfel Family band while in Key West so we went to Schooner Wharf Bar specifically for that purpose. It is a great place for live music and to people watch and they have great happy hour prices. A couple we chatted with tipped us off to ask for a bucket of ice to hold... More

We have been here before, it's dirty, the bums are on the periphery of the bar on the dock and in and out of the bathrooms and panhandling for you to buy them a drink and the management doesn't do a thing about it but we overlook it because they have good live music. We were there to see McCloud... More

Have been here several times over the years. Would NOT recommend the calimari, but generally, the food is good. Fun place to people watch!

Three quarters of pain gave way to euphoria with the Patriots win in the Super Bowl. There's no place I'd rather have watched it than in Schooner Wharf Bar! Locals brought in their own TV's to augment the bar's entertainment system. The beer was cold and brought in buckets. The appetizers were typical bar food, nothing extraordinary, but certainly satisfying.... More
