This is where the locals hang out; great prices with music and food.

This is a outdoor bar Keys so don't expect 5 star dining. The bar area has a roof and rain/wind protection if needed. There is also an outdoor bench seating area without roof if you 'd like to get some rays. I tried the fish dip and it was good. Our bartender was awesome, she knew what she was doing and could hear us even if you didn't think she could and was there with drink in hand!

If there is a downside, it would be the restrooms. Tiny and yes, dive-bar bathroom quality. And the dive/snorkel boat passengers somehow find a way to change in there and leave the place a complete mess with water everywhere. If the dive company could manage to find a place for their passengers to change, that would make things a lot better.

This is just a dirty dive bar. Definitely would not suggest taking family or kids here, or any body you want to impress. But if you are looking to hide out among some local drunks, this is your place. This is a one star, dive bar with music that is way too loud. Over and out!

We have been going to this bar for several years. Great place for fun and music. Actually, the music is the best! Don't know a thing about the motel because we live local. The restrooms are terrible....better to pee outside. Even so, we still go there but after today...forget it because of a health risk. Just today 4/6/14 we were there and I could not believe what I saw. The bartender would take your plastic cup, and refill it with beer. He never got a new one...just take the cup from each person and refill it. I watched it happen again and again. There goes the tap....next to where the last person had his/her lips on their cup. That is disgusting! How cheap are plastic cups?! After that....we left. Made me sick. Don't know if I want to go back and drink after another person. Go figure.

LooeKeyReefResort, Owner at Looe Key Tiki Bar & Grill, responded to this reviewResponded 8 April 2014

The new owners at Looe Key Tiki Bar are very committed to ensure that all patrons have an enjoyable and memorable experience at our resort. Any input, negative or positive, is taken seriously and corrective action, when applicable, is quickly rendered to ensure continuity of our policies and procedures.
We truly appreciate the kind remarks regarding our entertainment schedule, positive reviews are always nice. As for the remarks regarding our restrooms we inherited them in very poor condition, however, our petition for a permit from Monroe County to conduct a remodeling has been approved and we are currently in the contracting process to have new restrooms soon. Lastly, we take pride in the cleanliness of this resort. Everyday our staff is detailed to ensure compliance with all safety and health related issues. We train our staff to be attentive to their surroundings and reactive to situations that require immediate intervention; by doing so we have earned the respect from hundreds of locals and guests that frequent our establishment every day. It's unfortunate that you were unable to communicate your concerns to our staff or management, go figure, but we extend an invite to everyone so that all may enjoy a piece of old Florida with awesome locals and visitors.

My husband and I have been coming here for the past 4 to 5 years. If you are a tourist, don't bother. If you want to hang with locals and in season, with the snow birds, then come on in. We spent 3 months this year on Ramrod and went to Looe Key Tiki Bar several times a week, sometimes just for drinks, and other times to drink and eat. Food prices are reasonable and if you stick to beer and well/rail drinks, those prices are also reasonable. The food isn't gourmet, but it is good and basic. We have had the wings, chicken fingers, hamburgers, fish sandwiches, and the shrimp basket, along with okay tacos on Tuesday evenings (price is right and in Feb & March you have a tough time finding a seat in the evening) and hamburger sliders on Thursday nights. We enjoy the Tuesday jam sessions and the Friday night bands. Both bring out a lot of dancers. Table service can be slow, depending on how many servers are working.
