700 Waddell Ave., Key West, FL 33040, United States

Housed in an oceanfront Victorian house, this Caribbean-American restaurant has been a local favorite for more than three decades. The airy dining room is designed with white tablecloths and wood-shuttered windows, although guests often prefer to dine outside on the multilevel deck overlooking the Old Bahama Channel. Using locally caught seafood and produce grown specifically for Louie’s by Island Farms, longstanding chef Doug Shook creates fresh, seasonal (and pricey) dishes like Bahamian conch chowder and seared yellowfin tuna with wasabi sweet soy. Upstairs, the wine bar provides panoramic ocean views and a more affordable menu of small plates.
