We arrived at our resort in Key West a little late and the resort restaurant was hosting an event and didn't appear to be serving dinner so we started walking up Duval St. After passing a couple of other possibilities we settled on this restaurant. The people could not have been more friendly nor the service more attentive. We weren't... More

We arrived at Square One hot and so ready for some cool air. We got that at Square One and so much more! We had gotten up late, went to the Hemingway Estate and then we were ready for brunch at 1 pm. Amber, our fabulous server, delighted us with attention and excellent service. The Eggs Benedict was quite possibly... More

This is a Fancy restaurant for a good price. I had the "shrimp and grits", it was fantastic. Fresh and flavorful. They also offer the Mahi Mahi but not "fresh catch" or lobster. Service was great. Greeting, suggestions, wine pairing. This is he place to have the key lime pie; decadent.

Feels like the place changed owners because much better food, drinks, and experience. Brian is the reason we went back three times in a row and John the bartender is one of the nicest guys we have met in Key West.

What a great find for brunch. Just off the south of Duval St sits this great American bistro that serves an exceptional brunch. Most delightful French toast and eggs cooked to perfection. Attentive staff and lovely ambience! Thanks!

I ate there for two days because I didn't see any other restaurants I wanted to try. The first day I had rib sliders, excellent. The second day I had macaroni cheese and lobster, very good. The service was great. I highly recommend this restaurant.

This was our first visit to KW and found Square 1 after a long drive. The staff was very attentive. Our food was served quickly. The Caesar's Salad was great. I suggest the Lobster Mac and Cheese. Would definitely go back!

Went here for a wedding reception. It was the worst restaurant experience I have had in a long time. It took almost 4 hours to get our entrees. Most were cold. Some of us did not even get our food (they forgot). When we complained the management did not care. The servers did their best, but the management running the... More

I have visited the Key West area quite a bit and have never been to Square One. It had availability on Open Table, so I made a reservation. It was a little early for the popular dinner time, so a reservation was not needed, but always glad to have one just in case. Service was friendly and attentive. Drink replenished... More
