A real "Keys" dinner

Really fun spot. Totally casual. Brought our fish from earlier fishing charter and they prepared it. Did a fabulous job, Tables are right in the sand, local singers and amazing sunset views. Food was good, no frills.

Head on into Lor-e-lei's for a great outdoor experience! When you walk in don't expect a hostess to seat you. You seat yourself amongst a vast amount of tables. Pick a table that pleases you and enjoy the evening. And if it's crowded squeeze in where you can. The service here was excellent! I was in no hurry and neither... More

We arrived for dinner on the beach, wow... great view, manatees in the waterway, band playing. We brought our own fish to cook since my boys caught mahi that day. The price was great for cooking our fish but the options were limited. Fried, grilled or blackened, no spices...pretty bland. And the big problem was when our food arrived, the... More

My wife and I ate here and had a great meal. The prices where very reasonable and portions are perfect. I had a fish sandwich and my wife had the tropical chicken sandwich. The server we had was great also.

It was decent food wouldn't brag about it. Its all about the view, live.music and laid back atmosphere. If the food was kicked up a notch this place is where you want to wind down to.

We asked around for the best place to take our fresh catch from a fishing trip and the captain recommended Lor-e-lei. It was only $6.95 per person to prepare our catch. They were willing to prepare it any way we liked. We choose some cut up into bite size and fried, some grilled, and some blackened. It was all delicious.... More

we came there for dinner and the place was quite busy. It is self-seating service so we sat down at a dirty table (the only ones available were the dirty ones) and waited for about 10 minutes to get it cleaned, then another 10 minutes to get the menus, then another 10 to get the orders taken - out waiter...

My family was there 2 weeks ago for dinner and it was not pleasant. We got there about 7 which is very late to get there bc it's seat your self ( and never leave type dining). They are on the bay and always have live music. Those are the pluses. The minuses are you get so frustrated trying to... More

The place is special, in front the sea, with the wind and nice view. The food is ok (nothing more than that), but you can get a good experience there. If you are looking for a meal with fair price and beautiful landscape, go there :)

On our last evening in Islamorada, wanted to try Lor-e-lei. It was pretty busy for it being the middle of the summer week, but we got a pretty good table in the sand, waiting for sunset. There was live music ...this guy, Dennis Holmes, was awesome. He had several guitar solos that were as if we were at some huge... More
