When in Key West we always try to have at least one meal @ 2 cents. Fantastic well prepared cocktails in the adjacent bar. Dining under the stars and a creative menu that has a something for everyone.

Excellent appetizers and drinks for happy hour. Get there early! Gets crowded and you may not get in time.

First time having Shishito Peppers. Not too spicy, great pepper flavor. Bone marrow, El Pastore Tacos, buffalo shrimp salad and foie gras were all very good. Funky little place.

There were 5 of us celebrating a birthday in Key West. So glad one of our group knew about the Happy Hour at 2 Cents. First of all.... free bacon! And, if that's not enough, you get to roll dice to determine your drink price. Several of us were lucky to roll for $1 or 1/2-price drinks. The chicken wings... More

Zachary our bartender was hateful and rude. We have never been treated so poorly by a server before. It is a shame because the food is excellent but because of him we will not be returning. We asked to speak to the manager and he said he was the manager.

This is very surprising to see, Christi. While we understand that everyone has different preferences when it comes to food and drinks, one thing we have complete trust in is everybody that we have on staff. This trust definitely extends to Zachary, who we know as an amazing bartender that consistently receives high praise from the people who pass through... More

Sat down at a table. Not crowded at the time. Ordered 2 drinks. Drinks were of good taste and up to par with what we had heard regarding quality. Waiter returned half way through the drink to take order of 2 waters and one happy hour side. He takes the menus as if we were done while all other tables... More

Thanks for checking us out. I'm sorry to hear your experience went this way, but I want to assure you this was not because our servers assumed you weren't "money makers." There is nothing wrong with asking to look at the menu again if we pick it up from your table. We do want to apologize for the calamari. It... More

If you want to get away from the crowds on Duval Street while in Key West...make your way to this place. Nice, laid back vibe, good food and a great happy hour that you can roll the dice to determine your drink price! How cool is that and they bring you bacon to munch on with your cocktails!
