We just love this place! It is a great place to go have a drink, get some good food and relax. If we are to tired to bike we jump in our boat and pull up for an afternoon drink. They have great music every night and the magician is very entertaining. If you are a fisherman they will cook... More

We have been here many times and never disappointed. The place is a laid back nothing fancy neighborhood local fishermens type place. The staff was very efficient and friendly. The food was stick to your ribs good and not very expensive. There is entertainment every night and always worth staying for. Of course the sunset isn't shabby either. Give them... More

Get there early for some dinner as the sun goes down. We sat right on the beach overlooking the sunset and it was amazing. The food is here also great! I recommend the fish tacos!

I've lived here in the keys 9 months. I've been here numerous times and not once been disappointed. My entire family really likes this place. Good food, drinks and awesome prices. Not too mention the fabulous sunset.

This was recommended by a friend, and I am glad we stopped. We were driving from Lake Worth to Key West and this made a perfect stop for lunch. The food was really good, as were the drinks and service. The atmosphere was great and we ate overlooking the water. The entertainment was really good. I would go there often... More

The food and deserts are very good. The drinks are exceptional. The view of the bay and setting of this place are great. Have been going here for 25 years. They haven't missed a beat in all that time. So if you like laid back times-GO here.

Lor-e-lei is located not far off the highway on Islamorada. The food is excellent, the beers are plentiful, the service is well spotty. This pace get packed after 4PM, regardless of the night of the week. You're almost better off going for a late lunch and then hanglng out for awhile- the views are great and there is usually a...

OK for a quick no frills meal but smiling seems to be in short supply - the servers are mad busy and the place was pretty full even at 8 pm Live music is a plus but its efficient rather than memorable

Horrible service, average food, ok setting. Was not informed about the specials and I wish I had been because the meal I picked was just ok. The ONLY cool thing about the place is the Key Lime Colada. I would skip this place and find something else, even the locals said they don't eat there.

Wow, what a bad experience. It started off well enough: we got there in time to watch the sun we over the water. The location is perfect - just beautiful - so we expected a good experience. Sadly, no. It's seat yourself, so you have to hover like a vulture when it's crowded. Not fun, but okay. Service was sloooooooow... More
