Foursquare Tips

  • This is my favorite place... period. Come here for the sunset and skip the tourist mess at the square.
  • Best place to eat on the island.
  • If you have an extra $100 to spend on dinner for two, you must reserve a night during your visit to have dinner and watch the sunset! The chef is awesome and the view is unparalleled! Reservations!
  • Jimmy Buffett lived next door once upon a time. He mentions Louie's in the liner notes for A1A and in the live version of "Trying to Reason With Hurricane Season" from Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays.
  • Great view of the water
  • Overrated. Overpriced. Wack!!! Never go again. Michaels or Antonia's better meal 9 of 10 times
  • This place has the best mojitos in key west!
  • If you haven't tried the Conch Chowder, you haven't lived.
  • Try the Rock Shrimp Croquettes, delicious! Just the right amount of spice and sweet. Worth it!
  • Try the Asian chicken salad or the jack Daniels backyard burger, both are excellent.
  • Try the Double Cut Baby Lamb Chops, Roasted In Lemon & Herbs - Awesome
  • The scallops were delicious. Like butter!
  • The location is great but the service leaves a LOT to be desired. I'd recommend only coming for drinks and the sunset!
  • Awesome place for sunsets and great service and food!
  • The food here is awesome. I haven done both dinner and lunch a number of times, never disappointed.
  • Views, anything and everything on the menu! Did not have a reservation for lunch but the accommodated us quickly.
  • It is a little stuffy, I will admit.Food was above average, but not all the rave that you read on here. Wait staff was slow and really not friendly.
  • Well cooked chicken and beautifully cook risotto at a great price...Chvre Stuffed Chicken BreastWith Wild Mushroom Risotto and Smoked Paprika Butter
  • Order the lobster with truffle butter for an appetizer and the shrimp and grits for your entree. Then thank me :-)
