This restaurant has unique and tasty recipes for a fine dining experience. The carmelized brussel sprouts could almost be turned into a meal themselves (they are that good!). Service was outstanding, and I wish that I could give 6-stars. It isn't often that the bartender personally visits your table to ensure that a replacement drink meets your satisfaction, and then...

We love 2 Cents for many reasons: its laid back atmosphere, Layla the bartender, and most importantly the food. We generally order a few appetizers and drinks and we are more than satisfied. The grilled shishito peppers are amazing. The bacon-wrapped jalapeño poppers are incredible. The chicken fried oysters are delicate and divine. And the special crostini with amber jack... More

We actually saw an advertisement on the TV and decided to try it. We ordered the duck nachos and they were delicious!! We also shared the sliders with fries. The nachos would have been enough for us. It was one of our more pricey meals, but well worth it. So glad we saw the advertisement or we would have never... More

I would highly recommend to anyone traveling to Key West. My sister and I got the fresh catch of the day and it was the best fish ever. All their veggies are super fresh. Off the Main Streets and totally worth it.

The staff was good, the location and setting was good , menu was very interesting but honestly the kitchen didn't do a great job during happy hour. The examples I can remember is that poppers were very undercooked; the bacon in a cup for happy hour were wilted; and the Bloody Mary was lack luster. We really wanted it to... More

We decided to try 2 cents after finding they had good ratings for gluten free accommodations. My entire family agrees this was one of our top meals on the trip and we will return again next year! Not only were they accommodating to gluten free, but we also asked if they could make fish tacos (they weren't on the specials... More

Service here was excellent! You can roll dice during happy hour for a chance to win discounted drinks. It's a fun chance. The jalapeño poppers are great! They serve bacon during happy hour as well. Really cool place!

We heard their happy hour was good so we thought we'd try it out. We intended to do happy hour then have dinner there. I think the concept of rolling dice at happy hour is cool but the service at the bar was horrible. The bartender (her name began with L) just didn't care about us. She would talk to... More

We fished on Christmas Eve and needed a place to cook our catch and this place was very happy to do it. And we were very satisfied with the results! We took in fresh yellowtail snapper and these folks did them justice! The fish tacos were off the chart great, as were the other dishes. It was a great way... More
