No Name Pub has been awarded top scores for food and service in the ZAGAT Survey’s Casual Dining category for many years running. The ZAGAT surveyed over 700 South Florida restaurants and rated the No Name Pub as the “Best casual dining experience in the Florida Keys.” They went on to say, if you can find it you’ll be rewarded with the best pizza anywhere, chili, smoked fish dip and sandwiches served on paper plates in a real old rustic bar plastered with autographed dollar bills; those in the know say this Big Pine Key haunt is “worth the drive.” We have an awesome store where you can pick up some souvenirs too!
The history of the No Name Pub goes back to 1931 when we were a general store and bait and tackle shop. We remained that way until 1936 when the owners added a small room on to the main structure which became a restaurant and the Pub was born.
Our early customers included people from all walks of life, world travelers that arrived from the mainland via ferry and of course, the local Fisherman. The late 1930s brought an interesting twist to No Name Pub history. In an effort to increase business, the upstairs storage room was converted into a Brothel. While popular with many, the venture failed after several years as the fisherman were reported to be better looking than the ladies.
WHAT OUR GUESTS HAVE TO SAY
“This place is so good! Great food, the staff is awesome and we love it. We go every time and once I even ran into my old neighbor from Palm Beach County! What a cool surprise. We have always been treated like regulars here.”
This experience was great. The food was superb and the atmosphere was great. If I lived here I would eat here every week.
A nice place if you can find it. Everything on the menu is great. Fresh fish meals great fish dip, and the coldest beer.
