This is the perfect spot for beach lovers and foodies. We ate here four times in a week in Key West. It is the perfect spot if you are spending time on Higgs Beach or just like to people watch and enjoy a volley ball game. The food is quite good as is the service. While there we enjoyed mostly the scallop appetizer which was amazing. We also enjoyed the fish and salads. W also had the veggie pasta and pesto pasta. Both were good but I thought the pesto needed more Parmesan cheese. It was a little bland. The crostini bread with the scallops and pasta was delicious.
On two of the nights that we were there they had a great piano player and singer and on another night a women vocalist that w really good. A very fun place to go for lunch or dinner as well as the beach!

Every visit to Salute on the Beach is well worth it. On a recent occasion, however, we [not big fish lovers] tried the grouper and vowed to return. Accompanied by ice-cold pina coladas, the dish was perfectly seasoned and prepared and presented. We also enjoyed shrimp appetizers and, as usual, the shrimp served in Key West is the freshest anywhere.

The otdoor seating with a view of the ocean and the shrimp fishing vessels on the horizon brings it all home. Don't miss Salute.

We were very lucky. We turned up at 6:30 pm with no reservations and were able to score a table for two right on the beach front. Given the crowd of people waiting for a table when we left at 8:00 this would not be advisable normally. Our waiter was very friendly, greeting us like old friends, this definitely has an Italian ambience. I started with a Key West staple, a spicy conch and clam chowder - delicious - followed by a very generous helping of fettucine carbonara topped with five of the biggest, and tastiest scallops I've ever had. I finished with a slice of their famous Key Lime pie. This was my only disappointment. They make it in what they call a traditional way, which means it is topped with meringue rather than cream. Now that in itself is not a bad thing, but the meringue was cooked to a stiiff consistency and the top was browned. Unfortunately this is not how I like my pies topped, so while the key lime filling was tasty, the meringue topping detracted from it. All in all, a tasty and reasonable meal and the setting on Higgs beach, while the sun set, was great. Oh, and they had a very talented couple playing guitar and fiddle, singing soft rock classics in the background.

Needed a late dinner and this place is right up the road from the Hyatt. Free parking in the beach parking lot - which is rare. So we popped in. Not very kid friendly but they dealt with it. The Lasagna was some of the best we've ever had and it was huge! Great place if you need to quick bite to eat. Would go again.

Perfect location on Higgs Beach. Prompt, polite, attentive service. Clean. Very casual. Family friendly. Blackened Mahi Mahi sandwich was excellent! Fresh salad with yellow snapper was equally delicious! Good portions. Fantastic key lime pie! Prices are a bit steep but .... Will DEFINATELY return.
