Good food but PRICEY!

Food was good, service was slow as they were busy, and portions were average. $20 for lasagna is a bit pricey in my book.

Fresh seafood. Pinks and stone crabs were decent and not ridiculously priced, though a tad overcooked. Fried grouper was excellent. Appreciated the Dogfish head 90 minute IPA on the beer list. The best reasons to go though are the first rate people watching in KW and a key lime pie with a chewy decadent crust and mile high merengue.

Year after year when others drop in quality and raise price Salute stays the same. Always top shelf service to boot -- That alone is rare in the Keys -- Awesome !

Family and I had lunch here. Kids had pasta and a hot dog. Wife and I shared grilled chicken sandwich and a tomato/avocado and fresh mozzarella salad. Drinks menu had a good selection to choose from. Service was very good.

Our waiter was exceptional, as was the food. We had a beach front table, and the Original Whalers were playing a concert on the beach! Highly recommend.

Stayed on KW at a Motel right out of the 50's and the manager recommended Salutes for dinner. We walked over from our motel and Salutes looked from the outside like another throwback. We had a short wait before being seated and sat listening to the trio that was there. .btw, very good music. The bar has some decent high... More

We were very excited about having dinner at Salute on the Beach as it was "in the family" of the Beloved Blue Heaven. What we encountered was a lovely location, average food and poor service. They did not have the wine on the menu that we preferred. The white wine that we ordered was WARM!!!! When we pointed this out... More

Right on the beach with a great breeze, live music and amazing food. We had the antipasti platter with the kids devoured. Then came pasta, salad and all the usual oohs and ah's over the flavor. We didn't save room for dessert but saw some delivered and wished our stomachs had more room. We would definitely return to this spot!
