We stopped by on our way home for lunch based on a recommendation from a co worker. What a disaster on so many levels. We got there and it wasn't busy. We found a nice table but had to grab 1 chair from the rail so we could sit our party of 5 together. The waitress asked us to make... More

The atmosphere was good but bring your own food and drinks! The drunken server and manager could care less that appetizers took an hour. It was the worst dining experience my husband and I experienced and we have worked in the industry for 20+ years

For $6.95 Lor-lei will grill, fry or blacken your fresh catch and bring you a side of fries, cole slaw or potato salad. Get a table by on the beach by the water at sunset, let Lor-e-lei cook your fish and enjoy. Be sure to keep your eyes open for manatees as you cross over the bridge as well!

What a fun place to have dinner. Warning! This place is packed at sunset and you seat yourself. It is outdoors next to a boat dock with humorous boats that are unique, like the pink Cadillac boat and manatees that adults and kids love watching while you wait for your food. Live music adds to the atmosphere of a beautiful... More

This is a great Florida seafood restaurant with a fantastic waterfront /sunset view. While we were eating we saw manatees, sharks, rays and barracuda. The conch fritters and fried mahi mahi fish tacos were excellent.

While staying in islamorada (within walking distance of the restaurant) we looked to eat lunch here but with so much roadworks going on it was incredibly dusty. However when we passed back through on the way from key west no roadworks so we stopped. Glad we did! The setting is great - looking out to sea (perfect position if there... More

We stopped here at the recommendation of family and we were more than satisfied with the service and the food. Both my wife and I had a grilled fish sandwich (caught that day) that was outstanding ! Served with homemade chips and a cold beer ... stop here if you can ... you will not be disappointed.
