Pepe's is a small Key West shack restaurant. It doesn't look like much from the outside, but don't let appearances fool you. The food is great. The atmosphere is unique. We loved it. Again, some of the wait staff was rude. Again, we had a...More

We came here for Thanksgiving after I read about their popular turkey. The food was delicious and service professional. It was nice to escape the touristy part of the city, as this was definitely 'Old Key West'.

Had brunch here and the food was very good. There was quite a wait, but they have a bar you can wait at or plenty of seats to sit and wait as well. Nice staff and friendly.

Best Margs on the island! Go in around 7 pm and sit at the bar area in back and 'hang with the locals'!!! You won't be sorry you tried 'em.

You can't go to Key West and not go to Pepe's! Authentic, full of spirit and history. Food is yummy and good, not too fancy, the real stuff, so good! A real homy, sailor-type experience… You won't regret it for sure.

I loved how friendly the staff was, compliments to my 2 little dogs were abundant, they even brought over ice water to the table for the puppies, Great food, just wish I lived in the area, would go there all the time.
