Key West Pub is weening me away from my favorite local watering hole. It has food that I can afford, great A/C, outstanding happy hour, and the enthusiastic hospitality of the staff is infectious. I've got to admit that I feel like a "pet" customer but then I see how others are treated and I realize that the enthusiasm of the owner, Steve, has permeated the entire staff. Tourists that drop in here and are in the mood to interact with the staff at the bar end up staying for hours. These guys offer a real Key West experience. Come see for yourself.

Key West Pub opened recently in a location know for its failed restaurants. Not this time! Key West Pub deserves superlatives for its food, its staff, its décor and its atmosphere and they definitely have the recipe to last.

The food is way better than average pub food. They specialize in sliders as well as healthy and creative cuisine. I had a quesadilla yesterday, with a spinach tortilla, fried mushrooms, feta cheese and spinach and it was delicious, filling and very reasonably priced. The dipping sauce was sweet and spicy with a bit of a kick and an excellent compliment to the quesadilla.

I plan to try some sliders next time. They have a wide variety, including some unique specials paired with a drink, and I have heard great things about them. I've also heard great things about the tater tots.

There is often entertainment in the evenings or during happy hour. Local entertainers are featured and they have also had a few karaoke and Texas Hold Em nights.

It's a locals pub that welcomes tourists. Everyone is friendly and I highly recommend checking it out, whether for food or drink.

Our first time in Key West, we heard about a new restaurant / pub that opened up. There are so many so we took the advice of a local. It was on our walk on the way to the Southern Most Point from the cruise ship. Owner makes his own wing sauce, so we tried the wings and shared the Bleu Cheese Sliders, though we asked for no bleu cheese on top, as they were stuffed with blue cheese inside burger. Burger was moist and tasty. Wings were good size and sauce was excellent and came out really fast. Wine pour was really generous and great house wine, BV. They have a sign that all food is cooked to order so we didn't expect anything too quickly but was really surprised when the sliders came out as fast as they did. The beef was delicious and toppings were nice. Sweet potato fries were hot. Having only been open a short time I wasn't sure what to expect but glad we took the advice of a local who recommended it to us. They have a little "stage" that looks like they might have entertainment, but not sure if they do. Our waiter was Shawn and he was really nice. He recommended we go to the Butterfly farm and that was a great suggestion.
