The drinks were great here. Probably wouldn't eat here because the place looks a little run down. I had a Painkiller drink and it was fabulous. The atmosphere was fun. It feels like old school Key West. We will definitely be back for drinks again.

I spent a great afternoon here several years ago and was anxious to come back and listen to Michael Mccloud and enjoy the bar and bar food . We had lunch there today. The food was ok, rum runner was delicious. The disappointment is in how bitter the entertainer was. Dissing the crowd, complaining about having to play songs he... More

We enjoyed the live music complete with a dog on stage with the band! Tables are set on the sandy ground and there are live chickens walking around. Our food was good and we had great service. It is a nice place to spend a couple of hours relaxing.

I will have to say this is the best breakfast we have ever had on a paper plate. We got the shrimp benedict. It was excellent!!

The service there is AWFUL unless you know someone. The bartenders are disgusting and rude! The food is sub-par and over priced as are the drinks. The live music is hit or miss. No idea how they are able to call themselves the best bar in KW....far from it!!!

This is a rambling outdoor bar. The day we were there they had a guy singing and playing guitar during lunch. My burger was prepared as requested and was good. The wife enjoyed her salad with fresh grilled fish. This place is a little off the beaten path, which is a good thing.

We stopped here for a drink and appetizer. Not spectacular, but attracted us because of the live performer.

We have been to Schooner's in the past, and were hoping to give the food another chance-everyone has an off night. We ordered the coconut shrimp, which was overlooked, with cold, soggy fries.

Went here a couple times during our Key West trip. First time had wonderful service and a good time was had by all 8 in our group. Went back a few days later, now with 6 in our group for lunch on a Monday. We sat down to the right of the stage. We saw 3 or 4 different wait... More

Schooner Wharf does not disappoint. If you happen to be cruising into Key West, and have a limited time in town, then consider Schooner Wharf as a "Top 5" place to visit. They have consistently fresh conch fritters, Key West Shrimp, and cold draft brews. Live entertainment is offered every day and its directly on the Key West Marina. Very... More
