We went here for lunch with the dog. We sat outside because of this. Warning: midday outside was really, really hot. There is very little breeze because of the fencing. We finally found a small breeze by shifting tables. The servers were very accommodating. The food was very good.

This is our 3rd trip in 20 years to Key West, a local quietly told us about the place on our 1st trip and we go back anytime we're there. Small place, both inside and outside seating. We had our grandson's with us this trip and one got fish and the other a bone-in ribeye. Both loved it. We got... More

Showed up for lunch on a Friday around 1pm.......no hostess to be found anywhere, but we sat at the bar outside, for a bite. $2 Yuengling's were the ONLY good thing about our meal. Burger (6 oz) was tasteless and looked more like a kid's meal.......chicken sandwich was basically a tiny "tender" on a big bun w/ plenty of "rabbit... More

Our hotel advertised this place as a great historical restaurant and inexpensive drinks. From outside, it looks pretty scary! The drinks were as promised and the Key Lime pie was amazing! So, not bad overall!

Ok so Pepe's may not be the nicest place by looks that you have ever been to but all you have to do is walk up and see the amount of people waiting for a table to realize hey I think it must be good! Very well assorted menu with all you breakfast favorites at reasonable, especially for Key West... More

We had the French toast special and it was excellent. The coffee was excellent. We love this place. The wait was a long, but worth it.

It is a must to go to the oldest restaurant in Key West. Food was very filling. It was fun to look around at all the old photos of the place.

Great Breakfast. The menu was awesome and the staff was very friendly and nice to chat with. The specials choices are a great change up instead of your usual breakfast. We had a couple people in our group have different specials and they all looked great and tasted great. The bread special was amazing. The key lime pie bread was... More
