Ample, tasty, and fairly priced, served by Brian, who provided such attentive and friendly service that I can't remember getting any better in 5 star restaurants. My girlfriend had the shrimp po boy and I managed to steal a few shrimp as her sandwich was overstuffed. Those shrimp were fantastic! My Cuban sandwich was absolutely delicious, and the Duval street... More

Had lunch at Caroline's yesterday (mid-August). It was a very hot day but the temperature at Caroline's is quite comfortable given their shade, fans and misters. The manager came over and welcomed us. Lauren, our server, was attentive, efficient, professional and friendly. Her service level was excellent. The food was also excellent. The portions are more than we could (or... More

Of all the places we ate at in 4 days in Key West this was easily the best for food and service. Our server's name was Anthony and he was very attentive and courteous. We were seated immediately in a cool area of the café and served ice water as we sat down. The first time we were there we... More

Stopped once only to have a beer and people watch and then the following day to have lunch. Service is a bit slow but the food is excellent. Conch fritters are excellent, burgers look delicious and people watching is a blast, right on Duval street. Well worth the stop.

After my business for the day was concluded, I stopped and had the pleasure of having Brent wait on me. He was personable and really made... More

We stopped in for lunch. The chicken salad was very good with corn. The shrimp po boy was very big. Great cheeseburgers. Nice open air restaurant. Save room for something sweet because Fat Tuesday's is right across the street! Go have a nice frozen drink after dining at Caroline's.
