This place was recommended to us by our guest house and did not disappoint. Had a table in the shade, outside looking right onto the beach. Great mojitos and beer. Would have returned for a meal if time had allowed. Do try it out.

We visited salute on the beach for lunch. The skinny cool Ada was pretty good and the food was excellent. So much so that we came back the following day. I had the special mahi mahi in a broth with toasted tofu...delicious! Mussels were also pretty good. Great place to sit on the beach and watch the boats racing in... More

This is a bit more upscale, but very good. You can watch the sunset while you dine and take in a beach volleyball game! The night we were there, they had a guy playing the steel drum and singing. A great place to grab dessert as well!

This Italian restaurant is right on the beach. We ate under the stars. Food was fabulous. The wait time for table was insignificant.

For all the good reviews, we found this place to be very average. The food is totally acceptable, but nothing special. There are better restaurants on Key West (like the Flaming Buoy - - see my review) , so skip this one.

We just happened upon this restaurant while driving. We're glad we found it! The staff were "changing up" from lunch to dinner, so we were invited to wait at the bar or outside to listen to live music. The beer was nice and cold and the music was good. We only had a short wait and were seated with a... More

I'm always surprised at how few restaurants are on or near the beach here. So Salute is a great choice, especially if you plan to be near the Higgs Beach complex (including the West Martello Tower, the White Street Pier, and the Wildlife Rescue). Their soups are all good, and they usually have a fresh catch special, which is especially... More

We eat here every year on our trips to Key West. Since owned by the same folks who own Blue Heaven (another favorite), this restaurant has had a great menu, an excellent wine list, and consistent quality. The fish is fresh and beautifully prepared. The vegetables are given equal care. They're right on the beach. What else could you want?
