Popped in quickly with a friend to sample the mojitos - went for 2 key lime classics, despite the extensive selection. She had vanilla, I wish I had tried the pear. Great conch fritters, atmosphere and setting, too.

Gerd Rube sings an assortment of songs from country to Bruno Mars. Fun to kill a few hours down in Key West. Come to have a few drinks and listen to good music and hysterical drunk women dancing away. I have been here about 1/2 dozen times and have never eaten here so I can't comment on the food. I'd...

We were lured into Willie T's by the live music and ended up staying for a couple of hours, drinking mojitos, listening to the fabulous music and watching the world go by on Duval Street. They have a drink offer on daily, it was 2 mojitos for $12 that particular day - they were fabulous and excellent value. I am... More

We did not dine here, albeit it is mostly roadhouse food, but from what I saw and it looked good. Some folks next to us had a pizza and it looked good. It's all about the entertainment at this place. This is an open-air wild cowboy type of bar and they have an ever revolving group of musicians/singers/entertainers all day... More

Every time we walked by Willie T's had live music. Most of the singers were very good. The food was good and the atmosphere was Key West outdoors. Ask about the money tacked up everywhere.

Walked down Duval Street getting hungry. This place was already rocking at 11 am. We stopped in and grabbed a seat on the patio. Live band playing, drink in hand. Wonderful time here. Great grouper sandwich and nachos. Prices not bad at all.

Came here at lunch time to have a big lunch before heading home. I like that they have dollar bills. Unfortunately I did not get to have a drink but I will say I did enjoy my lunch. I loved the location I enjoyed the live music in the middle of the day.

Stacke of one dollar bills stapled to every square inch of the outdoor dining area. Waitresses are really nice and will carry on a conversation. Food was excellent also. Nice place to stop and smell the Money!

Great location on Duval Street for people watching. Great music to sing along to, if so inclined. The conch fritters were disappointing and the service was slow even though we ate at a non-peak busy time. I'd go again for drinks and people watching, but not the food.

Thank Tracy2travel13
