Nothing too fancy about this place but the staff are friendly and helpful. The food is very good, the ribs are the bars signature dish, great for breakfast as well.

Called in here for s late afternoon snack and a beer, would have stayed longer but the heavy music blaring out put us off. Nice location at the new location on the river but smell from nearby toilets is off putting.

The Rusty Keyhole boat house is THE palace to go for drinks on the river, ribs (definitely try the ribs), and awesome staff. A big thank you to Jorden F. for not only introducing us to this place but also for taking the time to...More

While there was nothing terribly bad about the food, there was nothing terribly good about it either. Haphazard service. At one time this place had a go-to reputation but the Kampot choice of eateries has improved immensely since then. Drop in for a beer, but...More
