Sunday night late dinner (8pm). Had to seat ourselves on the back deck, not a problem. Slow service. Ordered specials but were not informed there was no more rice/beans so served "warm" potato salad. Needless to say did not eat. Wife paid $18.00 for six coconut shrimp and fries, no coleslaw came. Appetizer came out after dinner was half gone.... More

Made welcome for just a drink and treated as a regular. Music on most evenings and the staff care about you giving good advice to help you make the best decision.

We came here excited about the great sunsets promised but the weather changed, which obviously was no fault of the restaurant. The live music was fantastic and it was a fun, energetic atmosphere with outdoor seating right on the beach BUT what was really uncomfortable was you have to find your own table. We arrived at 6 and every table... More

This is our annual first stop on our keys vacation. Great location, live music usually a good place to start to unwind from the hectic and cold of the northeast. The food and drinks were fine but we got caught in a shift change a few more cold drinks would have nice. Also would be nice to feed the screaming... More

I've been through the keys multiple times, but this was my 1st time at the Lor-e-lei. We sat down on the beach area behind the band gazebo for drinks and dinner. The band was very good and not overwhelming loud. I had a mahi sandwich and a few beers while watching the sunset. Best place to listen to live music,... More

We have been to Lorelei for breakfast for lunch for dinner and for sunsets. All good! Local music really fun at night. Breakfast looking out at the water is exquisite Food is good. Fresh fish always great. Great atmosphere. Lay back and enjoy the Keys!!

Food was reasonably good and medium priced. However diners were walking out from bad service and loud noise. If you are going for a show go. If you are going for dinner go somewhere else
