We're locals and love the setting of this place. That said, the attitudes and performance of the servers needs to improve. Service and food simply isn't up to par with other similar local "joints" (i.e., Hog Heaven).

We went here two nights in a row and found this to be a great little bar with great bar food. The first night we showed up a little late in the evening. The crowd was very young and appeared to be locals. Everyone was well behaved and having a good time. We ordered our drinks and Wednesday night they flip a coin to see if you buy or they buy. It landed on the colored side and my first drink was free. Dinner was very fast. We had a chicken wrap with bacon, shrimp, chicken wings and cream of broccoli soup. Everything was very good and reasonably priced. They had a nice seating area around a fire pit, small pool and children's play ground. It was dark so we could not see the view.

The second night, we showed up early. Older group. It was steak night and if we were not traveling home I would have indulged, the plates coming from the kitchen looked darn tasty. Tonight we could see the view. The water is a little ways off but none-the-less, a great view! We had the Cuban sandwich, and two BBBLT's. That's BACON, BACON, BACON, lettuce and tomato sandwich. Also, very good. Again, the dinner came out in less than five minutes. This place is definitely worth the trip. I would suggest going out back for drinks and dinner. Stay away from the inside bar area. They also have some rooms to rent.

This place looks like it's right out of the 70's - in a good way. I absolutely loved the photos/memorabilia that was hung around the place. It has a great vibe of what a sports bar should be and was filled with a mix of locals and tourists. It was recommended by the manager of our resort and I'm glad we stopped in for lunch. Perfect for a burger and a beer with great views while sitting outside.

Cold beer, nice view, nice people. But if you want good food, do yourself a favor and visit one of the many better places around. Absolutely nothing special (or fresh) about the food, and overpriced.

When you are in the Keys in Florida, you are inundated with things to do, places to see,beaches to roam, and a miriad of places to eat and have a beveridge. By staying on Islamorada, it becomes harder, because most places are terrific, and the selection is vast. So, what to do?....how do you find a place that is reasonably priced, and has great has great staying power????...ask the locals, they ALL pointed out Ocean View Bar & Grill, and the place is always busy, and fun to be at. The drinks were quick, the food was fresh, the staff is friendly, and It's a happy place....something we always look for. Absolutely try out this place, you won't regret it
