I've been going to Lorelei for many ,many years...to me its an every trip "attraction". Yeah, its a restaurant, its a bar, its almost always has very good live music...but to me it's a destination! If you're there for sunset(one of THE most beautiful in the keys) and you don't feel it , you shouldn't be in the keys at all.
Food is ok definitely a lot of better options , a little pricey but if you're there... eat! Our favorite is the seafood sampler plate ...split one . Drinks are good and strong...I do not usually like "sweet tropical" drinks but their pina coladas are the best I've ever had . They manage to get some really talented bands that really get you in the "Keysey" state of mind. Have drinks ( and/or dinner) right on the beach, framed by the mangroves , boats at mooring, smaller islands and the sunset as god meant it to be!

Great sunset views. Only knock is the food. The last couple times it has been sub-par to say the least..The grill fish specials were not that bad. The fried shrimp was just god awful. I mean one bite and back it went. We had 9 in our party. 5 ordered the friend shrimp. All 5 were horrible over-cooked and tasted like rubber. But they made up for it. Gave us a 1 piece of key lime pie!! So prtty much know we don't go for the food. The Key-lime colada's are out of this world. Just worth it to go and enjoy the view and have a few of these. Just don't order the Fried Shrimp!!!

SUCH a great place. Do not let the ugly road sign (the mermaid) fool you! The place is a hidden gem. Yu can dine RIGHT by the water, the food is great and not expensive and there is a fantastic atmosphere. Do not miss this!!!

Lorelei is a very busy al fresco bar and grill in a rustically nautical setting. Decent food and drinks. Prices not out of this world.
