This is a smoking bar, so it is very smokey. We met a few locals with tall tales while there. They do bring in live music at night. The bartenders we had were friendly. The pirate's punch is nothing special. Neat to see it though

Historic bar right in downtown Fernandina that serves cold beer and bloody marys with just the right amount of spice. This is a true bar atmosphere with talking, laughter, and music. If you prefer bars that are clean, smoke free, and serve drinks prepared by...More

We stopped in at the Palace Saloon for a drink after dinner on Friday night. This is the oldest continuously open bar in Florida. It looks it. Had we come in during daylight, we might have had a chance to see some of the architecture...More

We found this place for a late afternoon drink. Great bourbon and irish whiskey selections for flights, including Pappy Van Winkle Bourbon and Redbreast Irish whiskey. All phenomenal. Also Jack Daniels Sinatra Whiskey, which I had never seen. Bartender was very friendly and informative. Oldest...More

Good place to stop in and have a drink. The old bar and saloon doors are authentic. Live music was good and not overcrowded during the day. Locals were there and the people watching was interesting

I didn't want to miss the oldest bar in n. Florida! I was in late on a Monday night and enjoyed the live music. Loved the kitch-y bar, tin ceiling and interesting architecture. The beer choices are very limited, but they offered some interesting bourbon...More

Sure they can enter but if I'm not mistaken they cannot sit at the bar until legal drinking age.
