I was kindly invited by a friend to go dinner at the dining room at Little Palm Island this summer. I was delightfully surprised by the whole experience. From the boat ride, to the deer walking around the island, to the beautiful view and breathtaking sunset, the torches, the fire pits around the island. It is such a beautiful place.... More

Had a great night until the boat ride home. We asked our waiter to let us know when we had to leave to make the last boat. No problem. We waited on the dock taking pictures until we saw the boat speed away without us. We got the manager immediately to no avail. The manager called the boat, but the... More

The waiters, bartenders, and Chef are all open to customizing your food as you like. Ingredients were fresh and service was good. Views were gorgeous. Overall very happy. Though, as this is the only dining option on the island, expect high prices. Live music every night and for Sunday brunch, which was great!

I am hard on two things... restaurants and movies. Rarely find one with little to no flaws, while this was an exception. The Little Palm Island Dining Room was hands down one of the best meals we've had in a very long time. This was our second visit to LPI, while the first was about 3 years ago. I heard... More

The food and service is beyond fantastic!! The menu changes constantly, but you simply can't go wrong with the fish. If you sit outside and it is a still night, be prepared for the onslaught of "no-see-ums!" The complementary bug wipes they give you is like a fine wine to these insects. So no wind means STAY INSIDE!!

Ok I will start off by saying I usually dismiss reviews that complain about price but this please is a little extreme. Shrimp Cocktail with 3 average size shrimp $18, that's ok. Scallop dinner with 3 small scallops $57 is nuts, as is a 7oz fillet of wahoo for $49. The scallops were very sandy, not cleaned properly and the... More

We were lucky enough to have stayed on Little Palm Island, which is an over-the-top resort, so you don't expect anything less from the restaurant and it delivered. The service was exceptional, everyone was very friendly, and the food was the best. Definitely off the beaten path, but worth the trip and the prices.

We were lucky to stay on the island but if you are in the keyes and need a truly romantic dining experience this is it! The food, the staff, the cocktails and of course Mother Nature make this a unique and priceless night out. Book early enough to enjoy sunset!
