Fish which was the main draw was a little disappointing. Service good and location excellent. The Key Lime Pie is outstanding.

I've been waiting to taste the kind of red sauce I remembered when I grew up in my Italian family. I finally found it and the head chef was gracious to allow me to pick his brains on the little secrets that make a great sauce. Salute has a rare ability to combine the sometimes overbearing taste of sauce with... More

We were biking around the island and found Salute! next to one of the Atlantic side beaches. We stopped in for a drink and a quick bite and were impressed, so we returned for dinner a couple nights later and had a very nice meal. We liked the fact that there was plenty of free parking (which is hard to... More

We were looking for a late lunch and stopped in at Salute! The food was plentiful and very tasty. We had to skip the key lime pie because the main course was so filling. The atmosphere is just how Key West should be. You sit on the patio overlooking the beach. Watch the people playing volleyball or riding past on... More

We were well-attended for a light dinner, with mile-high Key Lime Pie for dessert. The meringue topping merited a photo before we devoured it!

We happened upon this restaurant on a foray to Key West. The location right on the beach was sweet and the Snapper and Mahi sandwiches were excellent. The best part, however, was the Key Lime pie. Wow. We were down in Key West a couple of days later and route took us past the restaurant again. We HAD to do... More

The unsweetened iced tea is bottomless. The gazpacho is great. Our salads were mediocre, but as my husband says, good food for beachfront.

My husband actually went here three times in our week in Key West. It is the sister restaurant of Blue Heaven which is also a great place. The food was excellent. The location cannot be beat. Right on the beach, steps from the water. We spent our last afternoon eating our way through the menu and sipping or day away... More

Key West is known for it's restaurants. It is a foodie Mecca. Salute lives up to this with a laid back casual atmosphere with a high style menu. The seafood choices are excellent. All fresh fish and seafood cooked in a creative style. I highly recommend the grouper, blackened. Perfectly cooked! The wait staff are friendly and make you feel... More

Read all the rave reviews but found the restaurant a little disappointing. The ambience for dinner is a little cold with the plastic chairs and tables. Food was so so, the mussels were great but the bread was unforgiving bad. The scallops over salad looked like it was prepared with little finnese. The meatball dish was quite good. Would not...
