Waterfront Dining

Seaside dining, with its salty air and water views, is a most pleasurable way to enjoy Key West's fresh seafood and cuisine.

Louie's Backyard makes a perfect waterfront dining experience.

On a Key West vacation, cuisine served in the great outdoors is as essential to the itinerary as a day at the beach.

And while an al fresco dining experience is available in many garden settings or at a quiet street café, nothing quite equals finding a spot right on our stunning tropical waterfront.

There’s just something about shuffling through the sand en route to lunch or watching the sun set right next to your table.

To find great waterfront and beach dining, head to one of these recommended restaurants on the Atlantic or the Gulf of Mexico that make even the locals feel like they’re on vacation.

It may well be the most memorable part of your entire Key West holiday.
