This place doesn’t look too appealing from the sidewalk, but we are so glad we went inside! They had indoor and outdoor seating. We needed to cool off so opted for indoor. It’s small and crowded inside, but we didn’t mind that at all. The...food was the best we had during our trip! Bar tender was our server and he was great! Very attentive and friendly. Live music was great!More

I live in Fort Lauderdale and whenever I come to Key West I have to visit my favorite restaurant, Two Friends Patio. This local hotspot epitomizes the true Key West experience. I went there last night and it was amazing as always. I went with...my local friend Deborah and we were immediately greeted by the cheerful hostess. The place was packed for a Monday night showing how much people love this restaurant. In a separate open lounge room the Entertainer sings accompanied by his guitar, adding to the lively atmosphere. Even though the place is full, Alex our server is right at our table smiling and offering us beverages. I will call him the 'winking waiter' because he ads a little sly wink when he talks. We order a very reasonably priced bottle of Ecco Domani Pinot Grigio which is promptly served to us by Alex with a smile and a wink. I Notice Marco the always charming Manager nearby taking tables. This is due to the COVID 19 situation which has created a worker shortage in most restaurants and businesses. But there he is smiling, taking orders, helping people, always a true professional. Although the place is full there was no one waiting, no one unhappy. The place is filled with laughter and cheer. Marco notices us right away and comes to our table, welcoming us and remembering us from our past visits. We order the lobster special which is a favorite of ours. $19.99 for a large lobster tail and a side. We both get the loaded baked potato. The food is delicious, the service impeccable and the atmosphere was fun. After dinner we received two pieces of Key lime pie complements of Marco, which makes us feel special and wanted. I cannot recommend this restaurant any more other than saying you must go there when you visit Key West. They also serve breakfast and lunch, and I hear they have the best Bloody Mary's on the island. Thank you Marco, Alex and the rest of the wonderful staff for yet another incredible dining experience.

Ate here 3 times while in key west… twice for breakfast and once for late lunch…. We’ve eaten at the other well known breakfast restaurants and waited 50 minutes to eat at the number 1 breakfast place earlier this past week. Hands down this place...is better. First off, no wait or minimal wait. Menu was far more comprehensive. Service was good all 3 times. For lunch I had a cheeseburger and my husband had the boiled shrimp (perfectly cooked). For breakfast I went with the prosciutto eggs Benedict with side argyle watermelon salad with tequila vinaigrette. I added a side of the fried oysters that came on the grits that were on the specials menu. The server made it happen without issue. My husband ordered the waffle with bananas and homemade praline syrup and a side of sausage links one day and on the other he ordered the pancakes as he got at another local breakfast place to compare and thought both were great. The food was really great, the service was great. Catered to large and small parties, was family friendly and had great live musicians periodically during the day. You can’t go wrong eating here. I seriously think it’s overtaken it’s breakfast rivals.More
