The menu is truly varied-- I had a wonderful trio of chilled soups that was just superb, and for a main course I had yellowfin tuna served with a sesame ginger sauce, and for dessert, we had a trio of homemade sorbets. Other menu items included a wide variety of local seafood, including stone crabs, as well as a wide selection of meat and poultry, all prepared in unique ways with interesting sides. For instance, the steak was pepper encrusted, and served with a fennel and leek sauce. The salad dressings, which are also homemade, are also all unique-- it's hard to pick just one!!
And, as an aside, I had a great bloody mary, and I'm VERY picky when it comes to these, because I make a great one at home!

We held our wedding reception in the upstairs private rooms and could not have been more pleased with our meal and the service.
The manager would not let me make a final decision on the meal until one week before the wedding...she wanted to make sure that we had only the freshest seafood and beef that she could find!
We finally decided on a choice of turtle soup or lobster bisque. Our guests didn't want to go on to the next course, they just wanted more soup! Next came a salad with an oriental dressing that was like nothing I had ever tasted before.
Our guests had a choice of the entree being either yellow fin tuna with mango sauce, crab cakes with a sort of honey mustard sauce or steak with a peanut sort of sauce. I tried all three and had to agree with my guests raving over the meal.
It is so difficult for establishments to prepare large amounts of food that is not either too cold, under cooked over cooked or pass the serving stage, and I have to say that Louie's absolutley out did themselves with our wedding dinner. Our guests still rave about it and two of them have gone back to Key West to try Louie's again. And don't forget to try the Key Lime Pie.
The restaurant overlooks the ocean, has twinkle lights at night and is step terraced to the beach.
Arrive early so you can sit out on the afterdeck and enjoy a glass of wine before you are seated at either your outdoor or indoor table.
If you can only have one splurge meal...this is the place to do it.
Writing this makes me want to make a plane reservation now to go back...great memories!
