Lunch on the beach, with flare and flavor!

Absolutely loved this place. The atmosphere was fun and interesting starting when we first walked in. The host was great. Expect it to be a little pricey if you're used to cheaper digs but this is Key West and you're sitting on the beach, drinking and eating while looking at Cuba. We ordered... read more

We stopped in as a group of six to have a cool drink on the beachside porch. The service was rude but efficient. The coconut mojitos were excellent and worth putting up with the mean waitress. It vaguely reminded me of the soup nazi on Seinfeld. It was a great place to take in all of the beach activity as... More

We were staying at the Casa Marina next door, and decided to give Salute! a try. I am glad we did! It was the best meal we had during our three night stay in Key West. I had the Pasta Carbonara with scallops, and the wife had the fish special. Both were amazing. We also had the calamari for an... More

The staff is great! Friendly and helpful. Our favorite are the sandwiches, made with fresh bread and the taste is the best! You could split one they are so big but you might want it all for yourself! Sits right on Higgs beach so the views are terrific! Inside and outside seating available. Definitely a place the locals love!

I have visited Salute on the beach mult times. Every time it has been a enjoyable experience. Beach side location, free close parking. Moderate size portions, reasonable priced with good service. I plan on visiting again.

We had lunch here on a Sunday while touring Key West. The location can't be beat, right on the beach. Casual and the food was really good. It's a busy place and we had to wait for about 20 minutes for an outside table on the beach side but it was well worth the wait. All of our meals were... More

I went in after 9:00pm which obviously irritated the bartender. She said that we had 6 minutes to order. How welcoming. There's just a better way to say that. I ordered quickly. Mussels came and I asked for bread. She said 'no' with her back turned towards us. My friend asked for more coffee; she sad 'no'. Again not looking... More

Friendly service, nice atmosphere, great location on the beach consistently good food. Tends to get crowded but less so if you opt for a late lunch. Recommend the shrimp salad and conch chowder!
