We enjoyed 2 cents Pup the last 3 years. My wife's favorite was the Foie Gras. Mine the bacon wrapped Jalapeno poppers. Will you be open on Jan 27? We will be in Key West for 3 weeks.

This WAS a great place, the large tree that sat in the middle of the seating area fell over in the storm and destroyed it. They will not be rebuilding and the 2 CENTS is no more

I sat outside and had the Mussels and the Caramelized Brussel Sprout Salad, which were excellent! The bar area on the inside is very cute and lively. The service was excellent, and I highly recommend it.

Had a great time during happy hour. In addition to great drinks, the bacon is wonderful. We also made a dinner out of some excellent appetizers. Well done.

2 Cents was an interesting bar. Great happy hour prices. Interesting fact, instead of peanuts to eat at the bar, they serve bacon!!! Wow I was in heaven. The cocktails were good and strong. Service wasn’t to friendly but seeing the place was worth it.More
