    Here are a few places in Florida that I am aware of that fans gather to watch the Pats:

    Southwest Florida:
    Foxboro's in Naples
    Boston Beer Garden in Naples
    Laugh-In Comedy Cafe in Fort Myers
    Buster's Sports Tavern (formerly the Windjammer), in Fort Myers

    Southeast Florida:
    Bostons on the Beach in Delray Beach
    Kelly's Landing in Fort Lauderdale
    Zo's Off the Hook Sports Grille in Fort Lauderdale
    John Bull English Pub in West Palm Beach
    Quarterdeck in Miami Beach
    Felt Billiards Bar & Lounge in Miami Beach

    Central and East-Central Florida:
    Mulligan's Pub in Celebration
    Houligan's in Palm Coast
    Beef O'Bradys, 45653 US Hwy 27, Davenport, 863-420-3350

    West-Central Florida
    K-D's, 13949 W Hillsborough Ave, Tampa, 813-855-7090
    Beef O'Bradys, 4330 Bell Shoals Rd, Valrico, 813-653-1888

    Northeast Florida
    Sneakers Sports Grill in Jacksonville Beach

    Keys:
    Rob's Island Grill in Big Pine Key
    Finnegan's Wake in Key West
    The Lazy Gecko in Key West


    I can not vouch for all of these; most I got off either patriots.com or searches on the net. I can tell you that KD's, Foxboro's and Boston Beer Garden are indeed all filled with Pats fans on Sundays during the NFL season. If anybody has been to any of the establishments on game day, please relay what it was like. I'm sure some are filled with almost all Pats fans on game day but I'm guessing some of the others may only have a handful of Pats fans, while the venue is mostly occupied with people watching the Dolphins, Bucs or Jags. Any additional information would be greatly appreciated.

    Flanagans in Altamonte Springs (Central Florida/Orlando) is a Patriots bar, and a good one! Lot's of New England fans on game day and Boston sports memorabilia throughout. I think one of the owners is a Yankee fan tho', they have some NYY crap in there...

    Is that Flanagans part of the same "Flanagans" chain down here in FL?

    Looks to me like they're not connected.
    The one in Altamonte Springs is Flanagan's Sports Pub
    The chain in the Miami-Ft Lauderdale area is Flanigan's Seafood Bar & Grill

    yeah, I can't imagine it's part of a chain, it's a hole in the wall... but lot's of NE sports fans and the atmosphere reminds me of home unlike the usual watering holes here like the Ale House and such...

    Just came across a few other places that supposedly cater to Pats fans:


    Florida

    DELRAY BEACH
    Boston's on the Beach
    [SIZE=+0]40 S. Ocean Boulevard, Delray Beach, FL[/SIZE]
    [SIZE=+0](561) 278-3364[/SIZE]
    Boston's televises all Boston teams

    FORT MYERS
    Laugh In Comedy Club
    College Plaza Shopping Center, Ft. Myers FL
    (239) 479-5233
    SW Florida Patriots Fan Club meeting place. Decent food, cold beer, and many transplanted heavy drinking New Englanders. Pats games only!

    LAUDERDALE BY THE SEA
    The Village Grille and the Village Pump
    4404 El Mar Drive, Lauderdale by the Sea, FL
    (954) 776-5092 / Web Site
    Reportedly a favorite of Bostonians for 50 years! Great food, the owners are originally from Massachusetts.

    NAPLES
    Foxboro Sports Tavern
    4420 Thomassen Drive, Naples, FL
    (239) 530 - 2337 / Web Site
    Great atmosphere for Pats games. Big horseshoe bar, plenty of tables, lots of big plasma TVs. DJ and great sound system. For playoff games the crowd gets too large for the bar so they expand by putting up a big tent in the parking lot. Annual trips to Miami for when the Pats play there too.

    NAPLES
    TEO's
    2452 J&C Boulevard, Naples, FL
    (239) 591-1557
    Sunday ticket - show all games. Patriots on big screen. New England owned, operated. Food is both excellent and inexpensive. Approx 10-20 loyal fans from eastern Mass.

    SUNRISE
    Hot Shots
    3868 North University Drive, Sunrise, FL
    (954) 748-4232 / Web Site
    It's a really big place, so fans from lots of different teams show up. This makes for a great atmosphere, with lots of cheering and good natured ribbing between fans. And a chance to make a lot of friends. We have carved out a nice spot for Pat's fans, with between 5-15 fans showing up weekly

    I was all set to head over to John Bull Pub here in West Palm to watch the Bills @ the Pats. For some reason my GF called to make sure it would be on and she was told by Paul (who I think is the owner) that they wont have it and he has not purchased the sports package this season. I dont know why it was always packed during the games.

    Anyway, we need a new patriots bar in the West Palm area. Any ideas?

    Wish I knew one. I go to Rooney's (Steelers bar), but it has a pretty good mix of fans with a good atmosphere.

    Duffy's & Smokey Bones will have it on also, but they will have all the games and that's just too crazy.

    We need a new fan club to step up to the plate.

    Doesn't sound like it's specifically a Pats bar, but from what this person says Houligans gets their fair share of Pats fans.

    Southeastern Florida Patriots fans:

    From analysis of the schedule, I think that 11 of the 16 Patriots games will be viewable on local TV (including ESPN) in the West Palm Beach area, based upon the time and network for the Dolphins games and the network having doubleheader rights.

    The games not likely to be shown are in bold & italics. Four of them are absolute locks not to be shown, since the Dolphins are playing at the same time on the same network. The Denver game is a question mark- Jets-Eagles is an alternative they might show instead.

    Games 2,3, and 4 are our rough patch, in terms of needing to find a bar or a crappy internet stream! All in all, the schedule gives us some breaks.

    The schedule:

    1) Mon 9/12 New England at Miami 7:00 PM ESPN– national game
    2) Sun 9/18 San Diego at New England 4:15 PM CBS (same time/station as Texans at Dolphins)
    3) Sun 9/25 New England at Buffalo 1PM CBS (same time/station as Dolphins at Browns)
    4) Sun 10/2 New England at Oakland 4:15 CBS (same time/station as Dolphins at Chargers)

    5) Sun 10/9 NY Jets at New England 4:15 CBS (Dolphins have bye, CBS has DH, sure to be on)
    6) Sun 10/16 Dallas at New England 4:15 Fox (Dolphins play Mon, Fox has DH, sure to be on)
    7) Patriots bye week
    8) Sun 10/30 New England at Pittsburgh 4:15 PM CBS (Dolphins play 1PM on CBS, CBS has DH, likely to be on)
    9) Sun 11/6 NY Giants at New England 4:15 PM FOX (Dolphins play 1PM on CBS, Fox has DH, likely to be on)
    10) Sun 11/13 New England at NY Jets 8:20 PM NBC- national game
    11) Mon 11/21 Kansas City at New England 8:30 PM ESPN- national game
    12) Sun 11/27 New England at Philadelphia 4:15 PM CBS (Dolphins play Th, CBS has DH, likely to be on)
    13) Sun 12/4 Indianapolis at New England 8:20 PM NBC- national game
    14) Sun 12/11 New England at Washington 1:00 PM CBS (Dolphins play 1PM on Fox, CBS has DH, likely to be on)
    15) Sun 12/18 New England at Denver 4:15 PM CBS (Dolphins play 1PM on CBS, CBS has DH, may be on but Jets-Eagles is the same time and also on CBS)
    16) Sun 12/24 Miami at New England 1:00 PM CBS
    17) Sun 12/31 Buffalo at New England 1:00 PM CBS (same time/station as Jets at Dolphins)

    I just recently moved from CT to Port St John, FL and not being able to watch every pats game is killing me!! :( .. Even worse I can't get the nfl ticket through Direct TV because I rent and my landlords would not go for a satellite dish on the side of their house...

    Does anyone know of any family friendly patriot bars in Brevard County? Or even a family friendly pats bar within 45 minutes of Port St. John?

    If you find any let us know ... the closest to you that I can see are up in the Daytona area, which I'm guessing is 45 minutes to an hour from you?

    Boomerang's in Port Orange: "Boomerangs in Port Orange, FL is the best place around to watch the Pats. It's near Daytona Beach."

    Houligan's in Daytona Beach: "Best place to watch the Patriots or any team for that matter in the Daytona Beach area is Houligan's. Twenty-plus big screens supplemented with smaller TV's throughout. Every fan base represented. Reminds me of draft day every Sunday. Jets fans in one corner, Steelers fans on one wall, etc. and Pats fans everywhere. Also best chicken wings in Florida. Oh, and a Massachusetts guy owns the place."

    There is also Flanagan's Sports Pub in Altomonte Springs, but even though that may be closer in miles to you I think that would take longer to get to.

    Sorry to say that I am not aware of any Pats bars that are closer to you than any of those. Fortunately from October on most of the games you should be able to watch from home.

    Melw18 was looking for family friendly locations, so that probably excludes any Steeler sports bars.

    This is from an updated list from earlier this season:

    Best Sports Bars to Watch the Patriots outside of New England

    Celebration Town Tavern
    721 Front St, Celebration, FL 34747
    (407) 566-2526
    Celebration Town Tavern

    The Celebration Town Tavern and Boston Garden welcomes you to an authentic New England Tavern

    Clearly, this family knows what it’s doing when it sets out to create a neighborhood gathering spot. Originally from the Boston area, the family started in the business thirty years ago with a successful seafood restaurant in Weymouth called Kelly’s Landing. The family then moved to Fort Lauderdale to open a second Kelly’s Landing, a place so full of regulars it evokes images of Cheers. Once again they relocated, this time to Celebration, where they opened the Celebration Town Tavern which has quickly become the town’s social hub. The tavern’s comfortable atmosphere is unquestionably a big draw.

    Directions, heading on I-4 East:
    Take exit 62 (Central Florida Greeneway/FL-417 )
    Keep right at the fork, follow signs for Celebration and merge onto World Dr
    Turn left at Celebration Blvd
    Turn right at Waterside Dr
    Turn left at Celebration Ave
    Turn right at Campus St
    Turn left at Front St — Celebration Town Tavern will be on your left​



    This was updated September of this year:
    The New England Patriots | FanZone

    Tilted Kilt
    11650 University Blvd
    Orlando , FL 32817
    (407) 916-9109
    Description: Patriots Fan Club For The Orlando FL. Area. A Place to hangout with other Patriots fans and have a great time.



    This is from the Orlando Sentinel in 2010:
    NFL fans: Find your Orlando sports bar Last Call Orlando Sentinel

    - Flanagan's Sport Pub: disregard, now closed down.

    - Knight Library Sports Bar and Grill:
    12289 University Blvd., Orlando; 407-482-2500.
    Teams favored: Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Miami Dolphins, Jacksonville Jaguars, New England Patriots.
    Knight Library Sports Bar and Grill - University of Central Florida - Orlando, FL 32817 - FindLocal Orlando Sentinel
    The Knight Library Sports Bar and Grill provides the University of Central Florida crowd a chance to chill out after classes or studying for a test. The college hang out serves beer, wine, liquor and American fare such as burgers, sandwiches and appetizers. The golden vibe features live music, dancing and scantily-clad school girls working for tips.

    The Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Miami Dolphins, Jacksonville Jaguars and New England Patriots are favored at this bar during football season.

    Looking at their website and facebook page it's not a Pats Bar per se, but just like any sports bar it will be showing all the NFL games.
    The Knight Library | UCF and East Orlando College Bar and Nightclub

    - Sharky's Sports Bar
    5469 W. Irlo Bronson Highway, Kissimmee; 407-397-4414
    Team favored: New England Patriots
    Sharky's Sports Bar - Lake Buena Vista/Disney - Kissimmee, FL 34746 - FindLocal Orlando Sentinel
    Call first; their website is not available, so I don't know if this place is even still in business.
    Sharky's Sports Bar has plenty for the sports lover. The bar has dozens of TVs offering professional and college sports and a huge bar with plenty of alcohol on tap. But Sharky's also has a huge game room, events such as Texas hold'em tournaments and daily specials.

    The New England Patriots are favored at this bar during football season.
