Louie's Backyard: "Overrated" Louie's Backyard Tip by jilly2

Louie's Backyard, Key West: 12 reviews and 5 photos

As someone who goes to Key West every year, I decided to look at some restaurant reviews to see if there was anything new this year. I saw all the negative reviews of Louie's, and thought I was the only one who didn't like it. Although I didn't have as bad an experience as most writers, the food was so-so, lots of flies, and the table we reserved(with a supposed view of fireworks as it was the Fourth of July)had no view at all. When we told our waitress that we had reserved a better table, she said ok and actually moved us to a worse table. As one reviewer wrote that her boyfriend wasn't feeling well, the same with my husband, so we didn't order a lot of food, but tipped very well. I still had the feeling
that I wasn't appreciated as a customer on any level. I won't go back, I tell everybody, and a lot of the locals have told us it is overrated. I wonder if Jimmy would still wander over!
