Heard some great live music at this bar! They book really good bands, so definitely worth mosying up and tossing a few back while you listen to good, live music.

Food and drinks were very moderately priced as well. I paid $10 for a top shelf margarita and around $17 for a DELICIOUS blackened red snapper sandwich. I would highly recommend checking them out just before sunset. And get a spot by the water! Walk up and grab a table. Seat yourself.

Right on the wharf overlooking the harbor. Easy and relaxed. Great place for some good bar food and a couple of cold beers and live music. Always a favorite. Not fine dining....but that's not what I am looking for. Easy Keysey and always fun. Peel and eat shrimp and an ice cold beer....it just doesn't get any better.

Loved it until the owner told me 'you're by yourself and taking a table for 2 that other customers could use'. Apparently my business (3 drinks over 1 1/2 hours) as a local business owner that recommends them a lot isn't desirable. There were 5-10 open tables in much better locations around the bar, as this was a 'locals' table... More

Don't let the look of the place fool you. The fish is fresh and delicious. Large servings at reasonable prices. You can sit right next to the water and have beautiful views of the marina. Live music very night.

We always come to Schooners while in Key West. It's a wonderful dive of a wharf bar with great music, shrimp and oysters, nachos, etc. The beer is cold. Great atmosphere. Love this place.

Finally made it into Schooner's! Stopped in for 2 drinks using the Bar Card. Awesome drink menu. We will definitely be back. We tried the lemon drop martini and the miami vice, both great. We are making this place a permanent stop on our bar crawls now. Great music too!

You can spend your afternoon of evening in a boring place or tourist trap or better stop at Schooner and catch great live music, meet people and have a cold one Food is also not bad so I recommend this place while visiting KW

Our daughter sent us here when she heard we were spending the day in Key West. So we went. As always in Key West we had a difficult time finding parking anywhere nearby, but we were willing to walk and it was a beautiful day. My husband had the shrimp and I tried the fish dip as my daughter had... More

Depending on what you are looking for, this may be the place where you might want to hang out. Being 'legitimately divey', don't expect to see tuxedoed servers, linen covered tables, or even a roof over much of the place. But that is part of the charm. They serve breakfast lunch and dinner which isn't the best food in key... More
