“LOCAL TIKI JOINT - GREAT BURGER - GREAT MUSIC”
Reviewed 29 April 2014

My buddy and I are in our lower 40's and we were the youngest people there until a few 30-somethings strolled in later in the evening. Definitely a hotspot for local 50+ crowd. HUGE TVs everywhere, so you won't miss any sports action. Great Live music. Great beer selection. And one of the best burgers ever, ever, ever. Wings were also a hit. My pal had the Turkey Club and it was three times the size of your normal Club. Lots of smoking. I wouldn't bring kids here. Also, I'm a beer guy but I just couldn't deal witrh the flimsy plastic dixie cups. Seems odd that they'd invest so much in TVs and then pour such good ice cold beer into one of those cups. Summary - Surprisingly Fantastic Food. Great Live music, Great Beer selection. Awful beer cups. Locals. Older. A True old-school keys joint where you can eat ,drink, smoke, and jam to a great band...Oh, and one more thing. I'm from NY and I thought the bill was wrong when I received it. The prices are super low. Made a great evening even better!

“Family deals for happy hour- great food and service”
Reviewed 22 April 2014 via mobile

My daughter needed the sauce brand for our dinner....she said it was the best. The owner gave us a free alcohol free blended drink for the kids to try. Excellent food. Great happy hour value!

“Local Bar!”
Reviewed 16 April 2014

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.

“Is what it is...”
Reviewed 7 April 2014 via mobile

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!

“Needs a good cleaning!!!!! Health risk?”
Reviewed 6 April 2014

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 review, 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.
