Must stop while in Key West

Bar with a Key West flare. Good solo guitar player entertained the patrons. Staff was not real pleasant. Try to toss a quarter in the fish's mouth - it's tough!!

Don't be fooled by the Sloppy Joe's on Duval. The real original Sloppy Joe's is around the corner on Greene St.. Bras and dollar bills hang from the ceiling and the beer is constantly flowing. There"s a huge tree stump in the middle of the bar and the floor is anything but level. It's the type of bar you could... More

We didn't eat here, but the bar finger-food looked good. We went in to see it because of Hemingway, but stayed to have a beer because of the fun atmosphere. The entire ceiling and all walls are covered with dollar or five dollar bills all signed by previous patrons. But even more interesting are the signed bras hanging from the... More

This is one of our must stop by bars while out bar hopping in KW. The beer is cold and the music good...try the Pirates punch it's pretty good. Plus you get to keep the cup it's served in! Capt. Tony's is great for people watching also. We can't wait to get back and have a few beers and enjoy... More

Just stopped in for a quick drink at the oldest bar in Key West. Beer was cold and their signature drink "Pirate Punch" was great according to my wife. Bar was dark and grungy looking, but that's to be expected from such an old historical place. The live music was really good. A must see when in Key West.

Went for drinks in the afternoon with a group. The drinks were very weak, the place was very dirty. It was really dark, I think if they turned the lights on we would have all run for the hills. There was no wait staff so you had to go to the bar, not always an issue but when you that... More

We came to have a few drinks on our first night in Key West. Was not disappointed! There were a musician who sang really good, just playing guitar, and the songs were fun! It is really dark inside, we are not used to this but it's part of the fun! Really good beers, awesome staff! Just go there !
