What can be a more lovely way to share dinner with friends than beach-side
with the water gently lapping in the background?
SALUTE is in fact right on the beach – Higgs Beach.
It’s a beautiful setting – white sand, the sun reflecting off the sparkling water
and blue skies with white, fluffy, cotton-candy clouds floating across the sky.
When we arrived, unfortunately, it was already dark.
The sun sets around 8 PM in August and we arrived shortly thereafter.
Actually, we wanted to also enjoy the entertainment as the
LOVE LANE GANG
were performing that evening.
My good friends, Chris Rehm and John Sudia, told me about this band and I’m so glad they did!
We luckily arrived in time to enjoy their last 4 or 5 songs.
Their music is a little bit different, mostly from 1900 to the 1940’s.
Thankfully, Key West is accepting of all types of music
and we certainly enjoyed every bit of their performance!
They’ve become the HOT new band in town and just came off a Green Parrot gig.
After they’re performance ended, we were seated in the dining room outside.
It was an amazing evening, the humidity was low, so eating outside in August was more than acceptable.
The view if it’s daylight!
I’m not going to go into what we ate. I am going to say the drinks were delicious and the food was good.
The only downside was that we did not realize just how spicy the dinners were going to be.
The menu did not indicate the meals were HOT and neither did our waiter advise us when we ordered.
Having said that, I would advise everyone to stop here for lunch or dinner.
Just make sure you get a full description of what you’re ordering.
But, let’s face it ….
The ambiance can’t be beat!
