This is one of our must stop by bars while out bar hopping in KW. The beer is cold and the music good...try the Pirates punch it's pretty good. Plus you get to keep the cup it's served in! Capt. Tony's is great for people watching also. We can't wait to get back and have a few beers and enjoy... More

Just stopped in for a quick drink at the oldest bar in Key West. Beer was cold and their signature drink "Pirate Punch" was great according to my wife. Bar was dark and grungy looking, but that's to be expected from such an old historical place. The live music was really good. A must see when in Key West.

Went for drinks in the afternoon with a group. The drinks were very weak, the place was very dirty. It was really dark, I think if they turned the lights on we would have all run for the hills. There was no wait staff so you had to go to the bar, not always an issue but when you that... More

We came to have a few drinks on our first night in Key West. Was not disappointed! There were a musician who sang really good, just playing guitar, and the songs were fun! It is really dark inside, we are not used to this but it's part of the fun! Really good beers, awesome staff! Just go there !

Visited simply for the historic factor and the bartender literally threw my husband his change across the top of the bar. Really? Also no lock on the one stall bathroom. Not cool. The whole place was dirty and filthy.

It is September 20, 2016, and once again my wife and I sit in Capt. Tony's Saloon, enjoying the atmosphere, exuberance, and cultural feel of Key West! Reading of the adventures of Capt. Tony on the wall exhibits enhance a feeling of historical significance in my lifetime. It's very believable that "Jimmy Buffet" got his start "strumming his 6 string"... More

Great bar. Drinks are good. Music is good. Lots of local character besides Jimmy Buffet in here. The lyrics to last mango in paris are still on the wall. Capt Tony is a must.

It's a bit sleazy and definitely for the older crowd, but we enjoyed it. The love music was really good. The drinks are cheap and the service is not bad at all. I've seen quite a few reviews slamming the service, but we didn't have a problem at all. Our waitress was really friendly and efficient and the bar staff... More

This is a great dive bar if you want to hide away from the sun for awhile. The bartenders don't really pay attention to you and the music acts they have in the afternoon aren't great, but the drinks are really strong and the vibe is unbeatable.

I've been coming to key west for over 30 years. For 14 years I've been visiting family that moved here. I've always enjoyed Captain Tony's. Unfortunately when I visited this weekend we had a terrible experience. New (young, male, red-head) bartender who took advantage, was very arrogant. The bartenders make or break the bar. This bar needs to stick with... More
