Mallory Square And Pier - Review
The Key West Pier can be safely classified as the one uniting factor in Key West. The sheer diversity you’ll see here will be mind boggling-tourists, locals, hippies, rednecks, you name it! For ship-cruisers, the Mallory Pier will be where you dock off and for those on land, you can’t have a better evening than one spent on the Pier. Street performers galore, where ever you look you’ll see something that’ll captivate your attention. Grab a bite, knock back a few cold beers and watch as a beautiful sun sets and disappears into the horizon.

Mallory Square And Pier, Key West Reviews
Get there an hour early if you want a good spot on the sea wall to watch the sunset. The salty old buskers add a good flavor and balance out the extravagant street performers. It’s going to be crowded so if you’re not into that go somewhere else. It’s fun watching all the booze cruises go by.
Plenty of things to do and dine at in this area. The shop keepers were very friendly, polite and helpful, including giving us great advise as to where to go to watch the sunset while dining; see Turtle Kraal. Some were even apologetic for their slightly higher prices for their products. I found their prices pretty reasonable considering the location.
Mallory Square in Key West offers a little something for everyone. From saloons, restaurants, clubs, lodging choices and the most beautiful, picturesque sunsets on earth you will find it at Mallory Square. Outside the Sunsets, it is a very crowded, very overprices tourist epicenter. While the sunsets are definitely something you don't want to miss out on at least once on your visit the crowds become so large that you likely will not be able to get close and your view will be blocked. There are many street performers in the area and that can be entertaining to watch, the shops lining the area mostly sell the same stuff at outrageous prices while relying on the steady stream of tourists.
This is a fun little entertainment square where the cruise ships come in. Night life is very energetic and up beat. Buskers and bands are playing next to the water keeping everyone entertained. There are a few different places to shop for nicknacks and grab a quick bite to eat. If your coming in from a ship, you can grab a scooter or golf cart rental and cruise the island. Watch out for the roosters!!
There wasn't many vendors on hand during our visit. A very strong gust of wind blew a vendors umbrella off its stand. Two brave gentlemen finally retrieved the umbrella, with one going for a swim: "Boy! That felt good!" None of the cruise ships were tied up at the pier therefore, less vendors. About 5 years ago, there was a gentleman that had some trained cats. His show was free, but, he had copies of his for sale. Hopefully, he has returned. :) Please do enjoy his show.
