We visited this place as it was recommended to us by a friend. I liked the atmosphere. The waiter a guy that recently moved from Chicago was so friendly and helpful. The food was great. Tasty and plentiful. Not your ultra high-end food. But hey you are in an island! The pier keeper wasn’t very nice. For a moment there... More

Sounds like you had a great experience at our restaurant. Your waiter would have been either Ricardo or Jovanny (both have recently relocated from Chicago). They are both very friendly, helpful and most enthusiastic. Sometimes for the Dock Master it does get difficult taking care of different skill levels of boaters in the summer heat. Thank you for your review... More

We have been to this island many times over the last 20 years. There is no place quite like it anywhere in world. My kids love it! You have to take a tour or hire your own boat to get there. We rented a boat from 9-3pm and had lunch and fishing before and afterwards. Beautiful place with old Florida... More

We did a lunch trip to Cabbage Key with Captiva Cruises. We had 2 hours on the island which was perfect. We had lunch in the money room. Although they don't have AC (or it was minimal) the shaded location and fans made the room very comfortable. Our server was Debi and she was fantastic. She was very fun and... More

It was a long 3 hour boat trip from Punta Gorda to Cabbage Key and a record breaking heat day, however the cheeseburgers were better than my hubby and I remembered. Yum! We ordered them well done instead of medium and they were served promptly and were cooked perfectly and at the perfect temperature. Our screwdrivers and rum punches were... More

We rented a boat and boated over to cabbage key for lunch...they are most famous for their burgers. The burgers were good but not the best I have ever had. Service was ok, we ended up getting stuck there due to weather and spent about three hours eating and drinking. No really much else to it.....

Boated over with friends and family to a restaurant we'd heard good things about. Lovely trip over there.. The day was hot, so opted to sit inside. No AC, but overhead fans made it tolerable. The place self-proclaimed itself as the original Cheeseburger in Paradise, claiming it is where Buffett was inspired and wrote the song. I wonder how many... More

Thank you for taking the time to write about your recent visit to Cabbage Key. The story that "Cheeseburger in Paradise" was written about Cabbage Key is a rumor started many years ago...something Cabbage Key, Inc. has never endorsed nor advertised. However, in the 1970's, Jimmy Buffett did spend time at Cabbage Key before he performed a concert in Ft.... More

My family and I made our way out to cabbage key island on a beautiful sunny day. Before having lunch we grabbed a couple of cold drinks to walk around the nature trail. There's also a water tower that you can walk to the top and get a nice view of the surrounding islands. And a great breeze!! The kids... More

We had lunch here as part of a day-long excursion we took out of Punta Gorda. We’d read lots of good things which maybe heightened our expectations a bit too much. While it is a quaint, laid back kind of place, we weren’t super impressed by anything we experienced. Service and food were ok but nothing special. The hand-packed burger... More

We rented a boat for the day and my husband, brother and best friend enjoyed our day on the water. We wanted to try out the restaurant for lunch at Cabbage Key, we had heard about the "dollar" bar.

The food is good, and the atmosphere wonderful. If you are in the area, it is a must stop. Makes you feel like you are in the Caribbean, not FL. Cheese burger in Paradise, what more can I say. Have not stayed in the inn, but the restaurant is so much fun!
