“a gorgeous gourmand’s playground”

In 1971, Louie Signorelli’s oceanfront Victorian home was transformed into Louie’s Backyard. The original restaurant seated only 12, and had one lone waiter. In 1983, Phil and Pat Tenney purchased and lovingly renovated Louie’s – with special attention to the maintenance of the buIlding’s historical integrity – and transformed it into the architectural delight it is today. Their efforts earned it a placement in the National Register of Historic Places. Today, Louie’s is a gourmand’s playground, a cafe-style restaurant with an oceanfront background setting – a must-do experience which has become a Key West tradition. Phil Tenney and his son Jed Tenney are at the helm, steering Louie’s Backyard into the future with it’s long standing traditions and excellence.
