We stopped in Key West on our cruise last week and after making our first stop at the rum barrel, we were informed by the bar tender that the bar is closing at the end of the month. Very sorry to hear the news. We enjoyed our drinks and wished them good luck. Many fun nights at Pat Croce's place.... More

We stopped by around 09:40 pm in early April after dinner to catch a drink and dessert. Unfortunately, they were out of all of the desserts for the evening, including their bread pudding and rum cake (irony, anyone). Drink selection was also limited, as they were out of / did not stock Grand Marnier or Bailey's. I have since heard... More

We visited the Rum Barrel during the Super Bowl. Although the crowd was predominantly Falcon fans, I won't hold that against them. The food was ok, typical bar food. The pretzel bites soaked up some serious alcohol.

Part of the Pat Croce group of bars/restaurants in Key West. Love to stop here for food and drinks! Unfortunately, I received an email on 4/1/17 that they will be closing at the end of the month! All food was 50 % off and all merchandise 75% off for rewards members. We took advantage of both and had some great... More

Arrived on a Tuesday night into Key West in the middle of a College spring break week for a business trip. Was not expecting to have anything but drunken parties all over. Don't get me wrong there is nothing I liked more in college that a good week long party. Found this nice little bar/resteraunt and stepped inside. Low and... More

They had all the drinks and specialty drinks with the local rum. Ok priced. A/C when needed??!! It was 76 outside with a light breeze. Nothing else needed. No to hot not to cold. But the drinks inside where great and cold. The bar tender was very nice but didn't really want to help with the drinks. Either you know... More

We visited the Rum Barrel for dinner during our recent Key West stay. It was very empty when we were there, but we had a delicious, very reasonably priced meal and a wonderful waitress. I will definitely go back!

Ate here last week. Really enjoyed the food, atmosphere and ambience. Prices were very reasonable. Highlights were the cheesesteak rolls and the service. Our server was Patrick and he was so, nice, so helpful, nothing was too much trouble. He was a credit to your establishment. Would definitely return.

We ate late lunch here on the Saturday afternoon. Place was empty, some people at the bar and upstairs but we ate alone in the downstairs dining area. Interior is dark wood and walls open to the street. One rooster came many times inside to get food. TV's were on the wall showing sports. Waitress lady was nice and service... More

As the former owner of the Philadelphia 76ers, Pat Croce loves sports as much as he loves Key West. He combined these two passions into the Rum Barrel Bar and Grill, a local sports bar with a Key West twist. There’s something for everyone at the Rum Barrel. Whether you’d like to watch the game on our big screen TVs and have a drink at our fully stocked bar, enjoy a meal with family in the dining room or head up to the rooftop Quarterdeck for live music and scenic views, you’ll find a comfortable seat and a warm welcome waiting for you. The Rum Barrel’s menu isn’t just your average bar food. Culinary director Michael Shultz and chef Kevin Siford create an irresistible array of appetizers, sandwiches and entrees. Stop in for palate-pleasing favorites like Philly cheese steak sandwiches and queen conch fritters or sample unique specialties such as Joe’s Tug Mahi Mahi. Wash it all down with your choice from a vast selection of craft and specialty beers, signature cocktails and more than 150 different rums from our expansive bar. Join us at the Rum Barrel, where you’ll be among locals, visitors and sports fans who share your passion for good times and great food.
