Our dinner on Louie's back porch was lovely. Wonderful ambience. Incredible shrimp and grits. Somewhat pricey but why not splurge on vacation?

Great location, dining right on the Straits of Florida. Lovely at night!
Classy ambiance, very good cuisine, particularly seafood. Key lime pie recommended!
Key West at its best!

We were seated upstairs, nice ambiance. Tapas were good and fun passing them around the table. A bit of a snobbish vibe but all in all a good time!

Never had opportunity to try their food but when I attempted to eat at this restaurant on a Sunday night at 5:45 pm I was told I was not welcome and they had no room for me unless I had reservations, even though 2/3 of the restaurant was empty. I found their attitude snobbish and standoffish . Very rude. If it was the owner I was speaking with it doesn't say much about he restaurant.

This place has a great location and a good buzz. The deck of the restaurant is the place to be, but the upper deck casual dining is solid too.
We enjoyed a seafood bisque and a range of fresh fish. We found a foie gras dish to be slightly unpalatable. Well worth a visit.
