Thought we would stop in as it seems as though the Ocean View Inn and Sports Pub had received positive reviews. My husband called to see if we needed to make reservations and he was told no, the tables are 'first come, first served'..or seat yourself. Yep, this was certainly the truth. We entered through a bar which was quite... More

If you come to The Keys and want a Key atmosphere this is the place. Rueben was excellent. Cheesesteak awesome. Service slow but remember you are in The Keys...

We were staying nearby at an overpriced resort and were looking for someplace to watch a football game. The resort bartender told us this was the place the locals go to.

Went on a Tuesday when they had "Jam Night". Sat outside, had great food, and of course a few libations and listened to multiple bands. Highly recommended.

If you wanna check out a lot of awesome local Keys musicians doin' what they do best, check out Tuesday jam. Starts around 7pm, you never know who's gonna show up! Ricky Reihl & Bob Bunz are my favs. It's a little tough to get a drink or order food but patience pays.

No pretense here! The OV is exactly what it seems a friendly place where you can drop by have a beer or two and enjoy a decent meal without giving up your paycheck. We were privileged to be there on a Tuesday night jam and had a ball. Do drop in!
