AOL Travel Editor’s Review

In business for more than 25 years and with the same chef for 23 of them, Louie’s is a Key West institution. Located in an incredibly restored Conch house right on the water on the Atlantic shore of the island two blocks north of Duval Street, you can take your meal inside in the air conditioning or outside, in the back yard overlooking the ocean. Everything is good here, but if you want to start your meal with a big, big bang, try downing some of the Bahamian conch chowder with bird pepper hot sauce. You could probably strip paint with this concoction but, man, is it good. For the mild at heart, there are big, grilled steaks, superb grilled seafood and pizza. The Upper Deck, which opens at 5PM, is located on the second-floor porch, the perfect place for a glass of wine as the sun disappears.
