“sunset views and good music”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 July 2014

food was ok, drinks were good….we had happy hour beers and frozen drinks, the frozen key lime was amazing and the frozen margaritas were good. service was good and the sunset view was perfect. Better than 'average' but not quite 'very good'

“Big Disappointment”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 July 2014 via mobile

We came here hoping to enjoy a beautiful sunset and have a nice dinner with our family; unfortunately that did not happen. Waited over an hour and a half for our food and when it arrived half of our group's food was cold. There were at least half a dozen tables that arrived after we did that were seated, fed and out of there before we even got a second round of drinks. Tons of people were there for live music and a magician show which sounded good from where we were sitting, so at least my 11 and 2 year old watched some of that to kill the time. The overall experience was so disappointing. If you choose to eat here, make sure you have lots of time and patience. Don't expect great service or warm food.

“Great food, million-dollar view!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 July 2014

We stopped for dinner with the kids after feed the tarpon at Robbie's. This is a great place to relax! We got a cabana table on the beach and watched the sunset while we ate. The mahi sandwich was very good! We also had the conch fritters for an appetizer--also very good. The margaritas were cold and strong! Happy hour is from 4-6, I think. While we were waiting for our food, our 9 year old son enjoying playing on the beach and looking for shells and sea critters. It was just steps from our table and he could have stayed there for hours playing. We will definitely eat there again, on our next Florida Keys vacation!

“Great sunset”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 July 2014 via mobile

The sunset that we saw tonight was just great. It was very nice and to sit on the beach and your mean is very nice. The service was slow but everywhere down here is slow which is expected the good was solid make sure you get soup and salad because meals are small.

“a must stop for sunset”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 July 2014

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!
