My wife and I enjoyed a nice lunch in downtown key west at island dogs bar. We found two great seats at their outside street bar where we could hear live music from across the street. The food was good and fairly priced for KW. The service was great.

Stopped in for a drink with my friend and all outside tables were taken so we sat inside. Good selection of liquor and drinks. Bartender we had (can't remember his name, sorry) was great. Attentive, friendly, overall pleasant to talk to. Would stop in for drinks again next time I'm in Key West.

We chilled here while waiting for our conch tour. We ate dinner and had a few drinks. Great food but it was a little pricey. It tasted great though and almost worth it! I would go back!

We have been coming to KW for many years now and Island Dogs is by far my favorite! The food! The drinks! And the service is second to none! Ice cold beer and cocktails that are worth the money. One of the best Happy Hour menus on the island.

This place was recommended to us for super bowl Sunday while staying in Key West. A fun hangout bar, yes but wouldn't recommend the food. Lobster mac n cheese for $16 that tasted and looked like Kraft out of a box. Very disappointing! Other foods were heavily fried.

I'm sorry you weren't pleased with our Maine Lobster Macaroni and Cheese. We had a special New England themed menu for the Super Bowl. I can assure you that it was very much homemade. I bought the individual ingredients myself. To be quite honest, this is the only complaint we received regarding the mac & cheese so I'm sorry it... More

Rainy day in Key West, a great excuse to try a fun drink in a local bar. Boy, did we get it right. Great place, fabulous drink. If you're looking for someplace to hang this is it. Can't wait to come back!
