Food was terrific and location on the beach can't be beat. Waitress was nice. Host at door was not great.

On the 4th of July we ate upstairs in the "lighter meal" section of the restaurant. It was truly delightful in every way. The menu was fresh and unique. We began with gourmet popcorn, a selection of olives, and wonderfully prepared golden beets. Then we all enjoyed delightful salads ... one of the best Ceasar salads I have had! My wife and her friend raved about the watermelon and bacon salad. And finally, my wife and I shared the filet mignon burger and our friends shared the seared tuna. It was all expertly prepared and beautifully presented. The wine list was extensive and not over priced. Importantly, they worked to accommodate my wife's gluten allergy and our friend's lactose intolerance. The wait staff was friendly and efficient. After dinner we went to the patio bar to watch an amazing beach-front fireworks display.

This is everything you want food to be. The view is beautiful but sit inside to truly enjoy the perfection of the food with no distractions like the heat. Three appetizers of conch, mussels, and foie gras were so wonderful. The salmon salad was house prepared smoked salmon! So good! We had 4 entrées which I will rank in order of preference by all. Shrimp and grits, Quail, Pork chop, Scallops with spinach fettuccine. All were amazing! The desserts were all amazing. The creme brulee was the best. Go here, near the southernmost point very near heaven.

The food, the view, the service and the decor are top-notch! We loved ALL of the food, especially the anchovies stuffed flash-fried olive! We kept going back there for lunch several days in a row. The restaurant is tucked away in one of the most serene and private parts of Key West. The uninterrupted views of the turquoise/aqua waters are a perfect photo back-drop. It is a must-go restaurant in Key West!

Louie's has never disappointed us. Amazing food, ambience on the deck is perfect. And you can watch stand up paddlers with their dogs. C'mon - what else could you want?
