Wonderful romantic, exceptional food and view. Delicious food in an amazing atmosphere.
Elegant surroundings and impeccable service from servers who are professional, courteous and knowledgeable.
“Their seafood influence is on “hooked” local fish: grouper, hogfish, snapper, and swordfish. Our Key West “pinks” come from the local shrimp fleets. And at Louie’s, your Florida Keys lobster was caught yesterday. Louie’s also features fine steaks, heirloom pork, rack of lamb and free-range chicken.
The Upper Deck at Louie’s offers a perfect setting for sipping and tasting. Fine wines by the glass are perfectly complimented by the island’s best panoramic view of the ocean.”
recommend getting a table on the deck so you can hear the ocean hitting the rocks. Louie's is on the water. Excellent wine list. A very fine outdoor dining experience on the back deck overlooking the Atlantic Ocean coast of Key West. Definitely a place to visit if you're looking for a great meal in the Conch Republic! Open Everyday but Christmas Day.

That figure is stated on tripadvisor.com with the following breakdown of "flavours"; American ~ 53, Asian ~ 2, BBQ ~ 5, Bakery ~ 3, British ~ 1, Café ~ 6, Cajun & Creole ~ 1, Caribbean ~ 27, Chinese ~ 2, Continental ~ 2, Deli ~ 12, Dessert ~ 14, Eastern Europe ~ 1, European ~ 6, French ~ 4, Fusion/Eclectic ~ 7, Global/International ~ 2, Irish ~ 3, Italian ~ 8, Japanese ~ 2, Mediterranean ~ 2, Mexican ~ 6, Pizza ~ 9, Pub ` 2, Seafood ~ 34, Soups ~ 1, South American ~ 2, Spanish ~ 5, Steakhouse ~ 9, Sushi ~ 2, Thai ~ 3, Vegetarian ~ 4.

The most popular key west restaurants are the American, Caribbean, Seafood (of course!), with the desserts, Mediterranean and delis coming in closely behind.

If this is not your scene then you may want to scrutinize the more subdued options available to you.
