Only wish we had found this gem earlier!

On our last day in Key West we went to Higgs Beach. It started to rain. It was close to lunch time so we darted in Salute! On the Beach for lunch. BY FAR the best food we had during our stay.

The food is excellent, the service is very nice and competent and the location is 50 meters or even less from the ocean. What's not to like? We were there several times - we had different lunch dishes and we liked every single one of them. And the prices are very reasonable. Definitely an excellent place to go!

Perfect location and the food was great. Our waitress was a happy helpful person. Its right on the beach but the food isn't that touristy. I saw many locals eating there.

Had a lovely lunch here on the advice of a local. Don't be put off by the appearance of the building. The food was lovely and the waitress was very helpful with the menu. Would go back next time in Key West

Ate here for dinner, food was really good, service was great. Had great views of the beach and water. Prices are what to be expected for Key West.

We had great meals everywhere else but this was the worst! Dirty, run down and it seems to be a favorite with the bums.

Three of us ate at Salute! on a recent Sunday afternoon. Just a small Italian restaurant with a big, shaded terrace. Except for being right on the beach, the building is nothing special. So maybe it was the organic chicken. Maybe it was the drinks. But my caesar was excellent. Someone there knows how to cook!

Absolutely great spot to see the sunset illuminate the sky over the Atlantic. Beach volleyball right outside the deck area made for a fun but still upscale environment. Food was okay.

We have a timeshare at Hyatt Windward Point and this restaurant is just a very short drive or a very long walk. The owners also have Blue Heaven so you can guess the food is great. The Banana bread pudding is favorite. Food, staff, location is superb!

My wife and I joke that If you put spaghetti and meatballs on your menu, it better be good. At Salute, it is, and so is everything else. They don't pretend to be anything they are not and what they do, they do well. The manager Rodney does his rounds and greets every guest, making sure they are happy and... More
