If you wanna check out a lot of awesome local Keys musicians doin' what they do best, check out Tuesday jam. Starts around 7pm, you never know who's gonna show up! Ricky Reihl & Bob Bunz are my favs. It's a little tough to get a drink or order food but patience pays.

No pretense here! The OV is exactly what it seems a friendly place where you can drop by have a beer or two and enjoy a decent meal without giving up your paycheck. We were privileged to be there on a Tuesday night jam and had a ball. Do drop in!

I was surprised how this bar is laid out. It is in a big tent with TVs and a view of the ocean. The service was great, the food was great too. Had the steak sandwich with wings for an appetizer which were 'average'. They also were broadcasting for a local radio station which was kinda interesting. The announcer was... More

We always stop here when out boating. Grab a table outside under the canopy and grab a cold one with friends and family! Great wings, cheesesteaks and fish sandwiches! You can bring the dog too! Lots of tvs outside to watch your favorite sports. And a playground and pool to cool off for the kiddos!

We stopped here one night after traveling all day. The service wasn't great and the place is fairly run down, but the view of Florida Bay is spectacular.

A friend, who is a local, brought us here after an afternoon on the water and we had a great time and awesome food! Sat in the BIG chair and swam in pool while waiting on food. Very fun and relaxing time!

We just happened to be staying at the Pelicon Cove nearby and found the closest place for a late dinner after a long road trip. We ended up having dinner there both nights of our trip. There is an indoor small bar, when you enter, walk around it to the back patio. There is a fenced playground, a pool, nice... More
