This place was highly recommended by Bebe (nail tech @ Bodhi Spa) she didn’t mention that it was on the beach! This is amazing views of Higgs Beach. They had some really good specials going on, I got the snapper salad, big salad and nice piece of snapper. My husband got blackened Mahi-mahi sandwich with this amazing aide of potato salad. The waitress was Jen, from New Jersey, she was very friendly and made sure we had everything we needed!! Can’t forget the Blueberry Lemonade drink wow!! Jen also told us that Sunday-Thursday entrees are 50% off between 5 and 7 PM.

I discovered this restaurant while out jogging. It was close to our hotel so we decided to give it a try. We were encouraged when we realized that it was run by the owners of Blue Heaven where we had experienced a wonderful breakfast the day before. Located directly on Higgs Beach lends it to an incredible view and atmosphere. We enjoyed the food, service and ambience so much that we canceled our reservations at another location so that we may dine there a second night. That experience was even better , mainly because they were serving lobster that night. I highly recommend Salute as well as Blue Heaven for anyone visiting Key West.

There are a lot of great things about Salute! On the Beach. Location and ambiance are perfect for a lovely dinner date, the staff proudly shares that they own the farms where most of the ingredients are sourced from, and that NOTHING is fried or unhealthy. The menu is diverse, well priced, and deliciously healthy. But in these COVID-19 days, feeling comfortable with the restaurants guidelines and their enforcement is at the top of the list in terms of where we choose to dine. While in Key West, we dined in several restaurants, but none of them felt as safe as Salute! They were great at insuring that the patrons and staff were following the face mask rules, and those who like to break the rules, were immediately, kindly, but also firmly reminded that while walking around the restaurant, they needed to wear their mask. It was so refreshing to see management take an active role in following Covid-19 guidelines. I recommend this restaurant 1000%

We had our wedding reception here 4 years ago and it was amazing. Nothing about our visit here today impressed me, at all. At one point the manager and chef were concerned that someone parked in a no parking zone, I alerted the hostess that another person was about to but she could not seem to care less. Our food took forever. Forever. When it did arrive, they forgot my burger so it took another 15 minutes. The service was extremely slow, disingenuous and inattentive. I thought maybe the service lacked because they were going to automatically add gratuity but they didn’t. I guiltily left a reasonable tip because it’s a pandemic and people in the service industry are struggling, not because we got good service. Skip the calamari, yuck. The $16 Cheeseburger, the late one was good but only came with 4oz of potato salad and was MAYBE a 5 Oz patty. Like I said, nearly every aspect was a let down.

My family and I ate for lunch while visiting Higgs Beach. The waitress was not attentive nor did she care about serving us. I had to ask multiple times just to get a drink. The food was ok but highly over priced for what you receive. It took too long to get the food and I was still hungry when I left and we spent about $150 for 5 of us just for lunch. The hand sanitizer during covid-19, I believe had NO disinfecting qualities as it i believe was just water. The bathroom was the worst with no soap and water barely ran from the faucet. I will never go back and will never recommend it to anyone.

On a nice afternoon we biked to Salute for lunch. Lucked out and got a table outside right away. Very pleasant vie of the beach and the water. Our server was pretty busy but service wasn't slow at all. We both had the shrimp salad, one on a sandwich. Plenty of shrimp! The only downside was when asked if we wanted avocado we weren't told that there would be an extra charge of $3 each. Not that it would have made a difference, but it would have been nice to know. Kinda like hearing the daily specials with no prices, or "market price" which usually raises your eyebrows when the bill comes. Pleasant lunch and will probably return.

We went to Salute for lunch one day and were so happy that we did. The setting is casual with beautiful views of the beach. The Shrimp salad sandwich was delicious and served on bread made at it's sister restaurant. The potato salad was great and key lime pie was fabulous.

My wife and I went there for dinner with two other couples. We were seated outside and everything was great until our food came and the flies immediately began to pester us. We asked if we could move inside and the host immediately setup another table and had us moved within minutes. The service was outstanding and the food was tremendous. This was the dinner we had in Key West and we ate at several that was much more expensive. Highly recommend.

Key lime pie for $9.00. It is better from Publix. The chicken and Brussels sprouts were really flavorless. My son added scallops to his fettuccini and I was told it would be 4. Only three the waitress took anyone’s drink reorders if it was alcohol. I had to ask for soda refills. Way overpriced. We will not go here again.

My experience here was odd. I had been to Blue Heaven the night before (amazing) and we got chatting with the waiter after reading on the menu that Salute is their sister restaurant, so we decided to give it a go. When we arrived there were lots of tables close to the boardwalk side but we were offered a table on the patio side. To be fair, those could have had reservations, but why we were given a table next to the take out window, I'm not sure. Again, to be fair, we should have said 'thanks, we'll try another time'. I thought maybe the hostess didn't like the cut of my jib and that's why. But then when the waitress hadn't come over, the hostess came back to check on us, brought us water and asked if the waitress had been over. No she hadn't, she all but ignored us. Then a nice waiter came out, was very nice, and made some recommendations. The antipasto for two was good and could have served three. It was after this that 'our' waitress came over and basically said "you ok here?" Nothing else, no apology for being busy, nothing. We wanted the other guy back. I had the mac n' cheese with shrimp for a main. The pasta and cheese were good but the shrimp tasted like butane or some sort of gas. Not good. It was an odd experience. The good service was offset by the table and the waitress that was supposed to be serving us. And then my main was not good. Another table came in just before we left. They were also ignored by the waitress and got up and left. I wish we'd done the same.

First off, JEN RYAN, our server, rocks!!! From her easy calm manner amongst a bustling lunch crowd, she served us well. We all ordered lunch specials, sausage and spaghetti for me, grouper shrimp patties with avocado over a mixed spring salad, citrus dressing and grilled scallops. Everything was fresh and tasty! We parked at Higgs Beach and a local recommended we walk to dine there. We walked in, great table dining al fresco seaside, watching beach traffic, volleyballers, great vibe and even tried the 7 inch high meringue key lime pie. Crowded but great service, prices and FOOD.

The Ditalini and Cheese with Sauteed Key West Shrimp was excellent. The Mrs Spaghetti and Meatballs was very good but just a tad on the not too warm side when served. The KeyLime Pie was delicious! Overall a good experience.

Every time we visit Key West, this place is a must! We eat at an outdoor table overlooking the beach and the ocean. I am sure our food was better than good but what I always remember is the at least 4 inch high meringue topping on the most delicious key lime pie on the island! What can I say? Looking at my vacation photos of my slice of pie brings me back to the sunshine and laid back atmosphe of the islands every time. You can rent a bike and ride over there from Duval Street and even the bike ride is nice. I have tried key lime pies from Key Largo all the way down to numerous places in Key West and this pie wins hands down.

Disappointed!!! We have heard wonderful things and decided to give it a try. We will never go back or recommend to anyone. Our server was barely friendly and the restaurant was awkward. The menu was small, with very little detail given for any item. The meat lasagna (on special) was a tiny portion for the large price. It didn’t come with anything else… not a piece of garlic bread or a side salad. The burger had no flavor and came with one option of a side, I opted for the chips which turned out to be a small bag of lays plain chips. I hoped for homemade chips for the “foodie” environment they seemed to put out. The atmosphere was not inviting or entertaining. Again disappointed.

My friends and I were doing an afternoon at the beach and decided we would have lunch here since it was right there. We sat in the outdoor area , overlooking the beach which was perfect. Like many of the restaurants with outdoor dining it felt very eclectic. There was a short wait to get in but once seated we were well taken care of. The guys started out with a muscle app that had a very good garlicy sauce what was soaked up with the french bread that came with it, she even brought out more bread without us asking as she could tell we were enjoying it with the sauce too. We had some peel and eat shrimp, 2 entree salads, one with shrimp from the main menu and the other was from the specials menu and had yellow tail I think and a grouper cake entree that also came with a big salad. The produce and seafood were extremely fresh and tasty. We also all split a piece of key lime pie. That was not our favorite pie of the trip, it wasn't bad, we just had better. Service was friendly and fast. My main complaint was the cost. We walked away with 150 dollar bill plus tip. I think at the table there were 2 cocktails besides what I mentioned above. But given they were the only place so close to the beach they can get the price they want I am sure.
