The coffee was good, the chicken was good, the burger was good, the service was good, even the dishes and flatware was very nice. The shot of Bailey's was very very large and the back deck is beautiful. all good things.

Great food and very romantic atmosphere on the beachside. We had the fish and steak and all was wonderful.

Hang out on the back deck overlooking the water and enjoy the laid back life. They have a good wine selection and make arguably the best Dark and Stormy in Key West.

We stayed at The Reach, and this really was in our backyard! The service was excellent. The sunset was beautiful. The ambiance took top billing. Would definitely recommend for anyone visiting Key West.

This is a wonderful location and the food is quite good. The specials were unique and delicious and the service was wonderful. You have to try the chocolate brownie creme brulee for dessert. It is worth every yummy calorie. I split it with a friend and we just about licked the container clean!

Enjoyed the Key West dining experience at Louie's Upstairs Tapa's Bar. Great food, excellent service and most awesome sunset/ocean view. As long time local residents (15 plus years) it is a treat to be reminded of the beautiful setting & environment that surrounds us every day.

Unbelievable atmosphere to start. Out goal was to not take a meal in the same place twice while in Key West. Once we had our second day lunch at Louie's we knew this would not happen. There was no other lunch spot for us after that day. Food is exceptional, waitstaff is incredible, and the view is out of this... More

We stop at Louie's at least once a visit to Key West to enjoy the view from the bar. Unfortunately, I think this will be our last viist. While it is still beautiful, out of an entire week of eating and drinking out, this was the only time in Key West that we received bad service. And by bad, I... More

We started on the deck by the water during happy hour while waiting for the restaurant to open for dinner. Great marg! This place is on the water with beautiful landscaping. It was a pleasant evening and we had a fine dinner of seafood and enjoyable wines. The waiter was excellent and funny and attentive. All in all, one of... More
