We ate here a few times as were staying at the hotel opposite. The food was always great, with good specials on each day. The staff were all very attentive and friendly and the service was great.

You can't go wrong with the Lor-e-lei. Nice fresh catch of the day and good all around seafood. Not an extensive menu but plenty of nice appetizers. They will prepare your own catch that you bring in.

We have been going to Lorelei for over 20 years. It has a great view, delicious food & friendly staff. It's the best place to go after a long day of fishing. They'll even cook your catch for a reasonable price.

Good consistent food with an amazing view. The shrimp tacos are my favorite and the stone crab soup can't be missed.

We (two Adults and two kids) ate here twice during our 4 day stay in Islamorada. First for a late lazy lunch and second for the signature sunset and dinner. On both occasions we were fortunate to get a table on the main deck by the bar, giving us ringside seats to the bay and prompt and friendly service. The... More
