Stumbled upon this place by accident. We wasn't sure by the look of it how it would be but were pleasantly surprised. The staff were brilliant, friendly, I've never had my coke refilled so many times. The food was delicious and also probably the best priced. The owner was chatty and hands on. We really struggled to find nice food... More

I caught a couple of lobsters and they cooked them up for me "Chef's Choice" and all I can say is it was great. I wish I could remember our servers name but he was a younger fella and he was an excellent server. The only reason I didn't give it 5 out of 5 is there were actaully chickens... More

We waited for 15-230 minutes after being sat down for service, but we did not receive any and so we left and went to Duffy's, where the food and service were outstanding. I don't understand the lack of service, since the restaurant wasn't that busy at the time that we went. Also, even though you have a beach view at... More

The food is not bad, but if you are a Blue Heaven fan and looking for a comparable experience on the beach, this is not your place. The space is great for a beach bar, albeit incredibly hot on the outside patio, but the menu is completely inappropriate for the atmosphere. I would also say it was a bit overpriced... More

I don't like to write bad reviews and I do like Salute, the location and view is terrific! The food is good and the wait staff in the restaurant and out on the patio are very nice. We often swim at Higgs beach and are renting a home just a few blocks away so have been visiting them for Happy... More

As regular visitors to Key West, we returned again to Salute' on the Beach for lunch. Service, selection and serving sizes all are generous and reasonably priced. I recommend for either lunch or dinner.

Salute! on Higgs Beach is the right spot on the right beach. We didn't eat there, just took time from the hot sun to enjoy a VERY cold beer. The prices were reasonable, and the service was super--very friendly!

Found this little beach gem on our last night in Key West....beautiful, relaxed atmosphere with very friendly staff right on the beach. Views from our table were the ocean, golden sand and volley ball players enjoying the last of the subs rays......we were served drinks first as we looked through the menu, lobster featured heavily but it was the pasta...

If you have eaten at blue heaven (the sister restaurant) then avoid salute as it is truly the ugly sister. Although salutes location is 3-4 star, the food isn't! To quote my wife the food (we eat yellow tail snapper and lasagne) were both spectacularly un-memorable.

This restaurant offers a super view, good drinks, and excellent Italian food! The daily specials are excellent. A definite keeper on the list for Key West.
