After dinner downstairs, our waiter was nice enough to "reserve a table" for us upstairs for dessert. Kind of an uninspired room, pretty basic look, and unfortunately our small table for two was right next to the large, loud party we'd been seated next to during dinner, so we asked to move outside to the balcony. Much quieter. Nice. Except... More

After dining downstairs, we came up to the Haye Loft for dessert. The staff was friendly and helpful, and they had a table waiting for us. The Key Lime pie is about as good as it gets. The Peanut Butter Pie and Banana Creme Pie were also excellent. The prices are high, but as expected in this type of establishment.

The bar area is always hopping. The snooty greeter for the tables in the dessert area once again was rude and intolerable. It's a good thing they have the bar scene. The excuse that they have to save tables for the restaurant patrons wears thin when half remain unfilled. If it wasn't for the friendly people in the bar I... More

Must do for mid island visitors. Terrific small plate choices and Gourmet pizza. Best on island entertainment for 7:30 on. Wonderful live music in a delightful setting. Desserts are a must as are their wide variety of craft cocktails. Cindi is the best, most hospitable server on the Island.

Yes, this is an incredibly romantic spot and great for couples, but as a solo diner wanting to listen to live music, I also felt welcomed and valued by the staff and regulars. The pizza was incredible and came accompanied by a solid red wine recommended by the bartender. The "dessert room" is a den of temptation! No reservations are... More

Hi Jan, So glad to hear that you felt welcome and valued while solo - we aim for a fun and welcoming environment for all. And, as much as we enjoy the tiki hut vibe that permeates the area, sometimes we just need a little swanky jazz atmosphere. We hope to see you again soon! More

Hubby and I haven't been to the Haye Loft for awhile, and decided to scoot over for a cocktail and bite to eat last night. 'The Season', as January, February, and March is called on Florida's gulf coast, is in full swing, so who knew if we would find a spot at the bar! Thanks to Eric, the great bartender... More

You can avoid the steep prices at the downstairs restaurant and still have a delicious desert upstairs.

I hated to write this review but, I've been here 4 or 5 times in the last 4 years and have never had a good meal. My first meal consisted of shrimp "bland" another was overly lemon flavored Sweetbreads. The last was dry red snapper with a renegade BONE.

We were visiting friends who live in the area and they said we had to go to the Haye Loft for dessert. I can only say that the big problem is choosing which dessert to select. Standing there looking at the various choices is truly daunting. Each of the six of us was happy with our choice. A fun place... More
