  • Ordered margaritas. Tasted like margarita mix. Purchased an additional shot of tequila which I tasted. Instead of the call name tequila, it was a watered down version. The manager opened a new bottle ...  more »
  • I love sunsets and this was a particularly good place to catch one - hence the name. Just before sunset, catch street performers and watch the boats in the harbour (we even saw a pirate ship and a nak...  more »
  • Were there early in the evening, little los despite fantasy festival, the weather cloudy but I rate not weather but the local. Exposed location, no question. The cuban mix sandwich was rather below average, the thai noodles salad of my wife also. The rum runner cocktail had little class. Who wants to enjoy the sunset at Mallroy square can venture safely visit but nothing special from the local should expect.

  • In the area hunting for food and maybe catch the sunset. Sunset Pier to the rescue! Really enjoyable experience. Really good food. Sitting on a pier and watching all kinds of boats including sail boats and a huge cruise ship while enjoying family time over dinner with decent music and the best part was the sunset!
  • This was our best meal all week in the Keys... my husband got the black Mahi tacos and I got the chicken tacos... the presentation was fun and the food was delicious. Great over the water place to eat. Oh, and the food came out so fast!!
  • We end every day of our stay right here at this spot. Don't think we've ever missed a sunset over the past 8 years. We fall in love all over again and have the best time with the staff and other patrons. I think it's the spot where I want my ashed thrown when my batteries die. Truly, an absolutely fantastic place.
  • Excellent atmosphere, excellent service, and excellent food. What more can you ask for. We have visited over the last 17 years and it is always the best. A Key West must do.
  • Crowded? Of course! Noisy? Certainly! A bar located in a pier in Key West where you can enjoy a fabulous sunset while sitting, eating a snack and drinking a cocktail or just a Diet soda, listening to live music... what do you want more? Just see the pictures.

Where to stay in Key West

To explore the best of what Key West has to offer on foot, stay near Old Town, a picturesque neighborhood famous for its streets lined with tropical trees and gardens. Most hotels in this area feature rooftop decks, where you can meet friends for cocktails and enjoy ocean views at sunset. If you don't mind driving to where most of the action is, consider staying at a budget-priced inn or bed and breakfast on the eastern end of the island.
