“Quaint home cooking and great service”
Reviewed July 2, 2013

We drove past the place we were intending to go and ended up at Evelyn's. Certainly glad we did. We were just looking for a quick breakfast as we were leaving the Keys and heading back to Miami. We saw Evelyns and looked it up on TA and read the great reviews. Our server was really funny, cracked a few jokes and kept our coffee and water full. We had traditional breakfasts along with some sides of grits and biscuits and gravy. They also serve lunch as well as beer. It is very cute inside and also offers outside seating. It's basically a local diner with some cool touches, like their t-shirts for different holidays. I really liked this place. I would come here often if I lived here

“Outdoor seating - menu has inaccuracies”
Reviewed June 30, 2013

Ordered sauteed veggies, they were boiled; ordered grilled mahi-mahi, it was griddled. Coleslaw was good. Looks like the mexican dishes were good. Service was good, food was tasty, reasonably priced for Key Largo

“Cute place”
Reviewed June 25, 2013

We ate here twice while on vacation. The first time was lunch and I had a mahi mahi sandwich. The service was ok this time but nothing that impressed us. We went a second time for breakfast with a larger group. I had the biscuits and gravy (amazing!) but our group was served at all different times. Most were done eating by the time the last people got their food. Several requests were made for different sauces but were ignored by the servers. It is a shame because this place has such potential. It needs a good cleaning and better staff to get more stars.

“Breakfast All Day Long”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

I stop by here after a morning of scuba diving sometimes to get a pancake or french toast breakfast. You can be seated inside or on their front outdoor dining area (covered).

“Great sweet fries.... Ill back for more”
Reviewed June 20, 2013 via mobile

I had lunch at Evelyn twice in the past five days. The price is one of the best in the keys, Great quality, portions and freshness. I was with a group of twenty eight people, and what we like the must it was they never sacrifice quality and freshness for being fast. We were served promptly, and everything was hot, fresh and excellent. I was impress! The sweet fries are killer good! Nice bite outside and creamy inside. I'm in love with them.
