Enjoyed Two Friends Hated getting gouged on parking

The food and atmosphere at Two Friends was awesome. Had smoked fish dip, and crab cakes. muscian was great we found ourselves sunging along. BEWARE OF THE PARKING LOT located to the right of the restaurant. We came out and had to pay the parking attendant $20 to un boot one if our scooters... read more

Great staff, good live music, nice drink specials and of course Happy Hour Appetizers. The steamed Key West Shrimp are fresh and perfectly cooked. Chicken wings are crisp. Lobster Bisque is flavorful. Great service. Staff make it a fun place to go. Will keep coming back.

This was a neat little Cuban restaurant close to the Shipwreck Museum and Aquarium. It had a pretty patio area and they were very friendly and quick. The only problem was that my eggs were overdone and so was the hash browns they advertise. I still would give them another try just in case it was a fluke.

Hello Sjintn, I appreciate the review of the restaurant. As for the Parking lot we have no affiliation with that lot. Our parking lot is in the back of the restaurant. We do not charge when you are dinning with us. You will have to show a receipt as it also a pay parking lot when you stay all day... More

Our server was very friendly and accommodating to gluten and dairy free requests. The ambience was quite nice, and the restaurant was clean. Location is great. Drinks were reasonably priced, but most of the cocktails were really sweet. My mai tai tasted like a fruit nectar. The coconut shrimp was good. The broiled seafood platter was ok.

I wanted to ry this restaurant as whenever I passed it was always busy. The outside patio has a lovely ambiance and food was nice - I had coconut shrimp (not necessarily the best). However I was put off by the fact that they automatically added 18% gratuity to the bill. I understand that waiting staff rely on tips but... More

We had breakfast in the patio, all 4 of us had something different. But everything was a thumbs up. I would recommend the banana and walnut waffle with pecan sauce, delicious. Nice atmosphere and good service.

Nice little place that had live music during the week. At the end of Duvall so it made a nice "last stop" at the end of the evening. Close to the Hyatt.

The Basin St Broiled Oysters were so good. Put bacon on anything and it has to make it better, right? The bloody Mary was great, and the pina colada was good as well. Definitely a place we would return to.

My family and I arrived at this restaurant pretty late, around 11:15. When my family and I arrived, there were only a few people there and the waiters were wiping down the tables. At first, we were hesitant to walk in because we felt the waiters wanted to leave and be disgruntled about us arriving so close to closing. We... More

My husband and I had been on vacation for 4 days, and we were looking for a breakfast that wasn't fancy but wasn't fast food. Two friends delivered on that. I will say that even though the food was good and the service was great, it was too overpriced for us to return the next day. It's just too much... More
