We ate breakfast (love fish and grits!), lunch and dinner here! The live music kept us on our feet and we did a dive charter with Capt. Kelly that was awesome! I had to have 2 t-shirts and lots of great photos! It was a ton of fun!! Can't wait to return!! :-)

I had lunch and dinner here. Good food at a reasonable price. They have a band on some nights. Nice place to watch the sunset. I enjoyed the band. Service could be a little slow for ordering drinks.

We look forward to coming here whenever we are in the Keys however this time we were very disappointed. One of the more expensive dinners for average food and service. I felt there was a bit of 'bait and switch' going on. Their domestic draft list included 5-6 beers, yet they didn't have any of the 3 we chose. The... More

The food was really good at a wonderful price. It was nice to eat right on the ocean outside! We went there twice. Their key lime pie was to die for. It was the best on the island!

If you've never been to the Lorelei, you are missing what the Keys are all about. Set on a cove on the Bay side, this place has terrific sunsets, great drinks and typical "Keys Cuisine." Conch fritters, rum runners and sunsets...oh my. This place is a staple for me whenever I stay or pass through Islamorada.

We went for a sunset meal and stayed for the Michael Trixx magic show. Both were pretty entertaining and the prices were reasonable.

Stopped at Lor-E-Lei because of a recommendation and were not disappointed. It was a perfect lunch spot in the middle of our drive from Ft. Lauderdale to Key West. Casual, comfortable and serving good food.

This place is very nice with a view to the sea westward which allows enjoying the sunset while sipping a beer, very pleasant and relaxing. The food is correct but this is definitly not the key point here. There are a lot of tables in the facility and also outside, which brings to the glitch you may find down here:... More

Great service; prompt and friendly! Fabulous food!! Their blackened fish sandwich is excellent and can't beat the price - $10! We enjoyed the house made potato chips and the key lime pie was very tasty. We had the good fortune of dining with a manatee buddy who swam up in the sea grass right by the dining area! Ample dining... More
