Surrounded by bars and restaurants and known for its carnival-like atmosphere, Sunset Pier is a place to end the day. Groups gather to watch buskers and street performers juggle or play music. Watch the live entertainment show, have a dinner and a margarita, or shop for souvenirs nearby as you wait for dusk. And of course, don't forget your camera so you can capture the sunset. For travelers who use our world travel planner, Key West holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Sunset Pier and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.
Sunset Pier Reviews
This is a great place for beer and snack while watching the sunset. Watching the boats go by is another plus. The food and service is adequate but likely not the focus of the visit. more »

The only bad part is open seating so for a group of 6 we had to wait about an hour around sunset to actually get a dinner table. Groups of 2 or 4 would be much easier to get a table. Beautiful views. Great food. Fish tacos were awesome!
Both my husband and I had the chicken tacos. Came out completely deconstructed on a tray and chicken was lukewarm at best with plastic cups of toppings. Chimichurri sauce was not fresh tasting at all. No silverware in sight. Had to deduce that forks only (at least at our table) were in white paper bags in the napkin/condiment caddy. Server was scattered thinly amongst the tables. When she finally brought the bill, she asked if there was any way we could pay cash as their machine was down "again". She pointed us to a nearby ATM, which of course incurs a ridiculous fee. She only got a modest tip given the totality of the circumstances. As we left, she proceeded to chase us down the sidewalk saying "the bill doesn't include the tip". Crazy since she did get a tip! We told her to take it up with her manager. Not her fault for some of it, but I am not paying more than I need to for mediocre food and service when I had to pay ATM fees on top of the bill.
