Incredibly rude bartenders - too many cool places in Key West to bother with this. Found the entertainment raunchy but very fun and would have liked to stay a little longer but not willing to deal with the attitude.

Great location for drinks and people watching! The fresh squeezed orange juice makes the best screwdriver's ever. If you can snag a chair, it's great to watch people go by!

We actually stopped here for a drink specifically because there was a table open for us...the others we walked by were full. Pretty sure the reason for the empty tables was the entertainment. If you are going to be offended by raunchy humor and F-bombs, you probably won't enjoy your time here. Quite a few people walked in, listened for a few seconds and walked out. If you have kids with you...keep walking, nothing here that kids need to hear! In our opinion....the guy was super funny, though we were a bit taken aback at first! He was a comedian/musician and made many jokes at the expense of the audience as well as the people walking by on the sidewalk, so be prepared for that. After he was done, a band started playing and they were really good. Seems to be entertainment here constantly and the drinks are the most reasonably priced that we could find in Key West.

day or night, there is usually someone up on stage playing a bunch of songs, and having fun with the audience...there are 2 rick's, one downstairs on duval, and another one upstairs w/dancing, etc...the one upstairs is totally different than the one down on duval.....no cover, though..

The place maybe too big, or I was too old. Yes there was a lot of bars in one spot, but not busy enough to fill any of them, so we did not feel the need to go through them all. I imagine the pizza was good as there were many people eating it. People in and out of the strip joint all night, but I did not go in, should have just to see,..but for some reason,..it did not pull us in,..maybe a bit more marketing on the road or on the ground floor bar, Durty Harrys, could have dragged us in. Too bad. The band seemed average as expected,..how they could pay for a good bad I don't know.,...the one band member,.. I swear I couldn't under stand a word he said, but he could sing in English. A great band and crowded place may have made me want to stick around, other than, just a drop in spot for a few minutes. Not one waitress or waiter approached us,...some advertised special may have helped too. The potential is there,...
