PLACE TO AVOID:  the Sports Page     610 Greene St.    They claim to offer $2 shots during football games when “your team scores,” yet despite presenting game ticket stubs and alumni cards when our team scored the OWNER (who hasn’t gotten the memo that Key West is a laid-back town), would not honor the special that is advertised throughout the restaurant. I guess graduating from a school and having season tickets does not qualify you as a fan. Way to save a buck buddy!

Sports page also has a $1 draft happy hour sign hanging outside which they did not honor, instead offering 2-for-1 draft beer prices that cost MORE than most bars charge for 2 beers anyway.

AVOID the Sports Page. Rude Service, false adverstisements, and all-around not what you came to Key West for.
