I should have seen it coming. I was lying out by the pool soaking up some sun and suds yesterday when it hit me. That Key West frame of mind washed over me like a tidal wave of Corona with lime from the Schooner Wharf Bar. I had to jump up and run into the house to load the player with my Michael McCloud CDs and crank up the outside speakers. It is not quite the same as being there, but it will have to do for now.
Seeing the waitress with bountiful...uh, charms in the video was an added treat. She is the sweetheart who took such good care of us during our last visit to the bar.
The musical entertainment is the main reason we always stop in at the Schooner, but after a few beers our bellies start clamoring for attention so we order up some grub. We can recommend, without reservation, the Key West Conch Fritters with a lime mustard sauce, the "to-die-for" Fish Tacos with Baja sauce in a tortilla with onion, cabbage and salsa. The Chicken Planks is another winning appetite appeaser - fried chicken tenders with a honey mustard sauce.
The Schooner is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
For us, a trip to Key West is not complete without a stop at The Schooner Wharf Bar and the music of Michael McCloud.
