First heard of this place in a song by Howard Livingston, titled "Mangrove Mama's". One early morning driving to Key West looking for breakfast we noticed this little mom and pop place. Made a 'U'turn and went in. The service was exceptional! It is very clean. The prices are very reasonable. And the food was perfectly prepared. To my tastebuds, they have the best bacon in the Keys! The omelets are big and delicious. They need to chain their chef in the kitchen he does a superb job of correct orders, plating the food, and making everything delicious. The servers are all very courteous, friendly and attentive.
The atmosphere is a sort of funky, laidback, eclectic tropical vibe. It is very cool and comfortable.

We were so impressed with the quality, value and service we drove an hour, 4 days in a row to eat there.

Going back next week and Mangrove Mama's is at the top of our short list of must stops.

It may look like a mom and pop restaurant, but everything about it is 5 Star all the way!

Our food was some of the best food we have ever eaten in the keys. Our waitress Sherri was just as good. We cannot wait to go back. We will ask for Sherri again.

Another great local joint with keys atmosphere and friendly staff. Great grouper sandwich at a fair price. Friendly waitress who took time to visit with us when she had time. Be sure to read the history of the building... been there a long time. if you like casual laid back restaurant and bar, this is it. Not too far from Key West so if you want to get away from the tourist hoopla, this is worth the drive.

The best restaurant ever!!! My husband had a taste for chicken parmesan sandwich and they did not have it on the menu but they created the most amazing chicken parm sandwich! I love restaurant chefs that are out of the box...Muah! And the buffalo wings and dry salad was the bomb too. Looking forward to a wonderful relationship.

Sincerely,

New Neighbor
