We chose Lor-e-lei for dinner our first night on Islamorada because it was close and advertised a great sunset view. It certainly didn't disappoint on that note. The menu was a bit limited (I expected more seafood choices), but the food was good. The Peppercorn Crusted Yellowfin Tuna appetizer was great. The Madeira Bay Fish Sandwich Platter was good, but nothing special. The atmosphere, friendly and attentive service and excellent live enterainment are really what made this a pleasant and fun dining experience. And the sunset was gorgeous! We would go back.

We went two evenings while we were in Islamorada. The first night we had fish tacos which were really good. The second night we just had a few beers and watched the sun set. That atmosphere was very relaxed and it seemed like it was the place that locals hang out. We had fun and enjoyed it. The view of the setting sun can't be beat.

Good live music, average food but the location for the sunset is superb!!
Very busy early evening but music over by 9pm and after that it was quite deserted.

Without exaggeration, this was THE WORST service that I have ever had in my life. Our server was rude and acted like we were a HUGE imposition for her. She seemed annoyed and stressed and frustrated from the moment we walked in. We were a fairly large group (about 18, I think) but we are ALL very friendly and easy going and most definitely patient and even tried to be understanding but the fact that she was sooo dramatic got old really fast. The food was decent...nothing really outstanding but the atmosphere was fun. There was a band that everyone seemed to enjoy ... lots of guest were up dancing (and even one guest sang!) and having a good time. But all good times must come to an end and that happened quickly once dinner was over and we asked for our checks. Our server had charged 2 shots of Crown Royal (at $15/shot!) to our tab and when we asked her to please remove them, she acted like it was our fault that they were on our tab! She was clutching her face with her hands and dragging her hands through her hair...it would have actually been comical if we weren't so fed up with her attitude. Maybe she was having a bad day or something but as someone who waited tables for many years in my younger days, I feel like you leave all negativity behind once you step on that floor and treat your guests with kindness and friendliness and NOT with contempt.

We stopped here on the way to Key West and found it to be relaxing and friendly. We hope to make it back in the daylight as the view must be fabulous. A nice big bar and huge sandy area along the water. The conch chowder was delicious too.
