we were seated immediately and had a view of the street,great for people watching! Our server Lauren was friendly and had a wonderful personality,we had a great conversation with her and the service was excellent. Food delivery was prompt and the only issue was that it was a little salty for our taste,other then that it was enjoyable experience.

Seemed typical. Nothing to write home about. Like the other places on Duval, busy, loud, expensive, a worn from heavy use.

We stopped here after sunset and were seated immediately. Our waiter, Tony, was friendly, knowledgeable and professional. Probably the best service I've ever experienced in a restaurant. He had sensible recommendations and advice on the spice levels which was important to one of our party. The location is right on Duval Street and great for people watching. I had the... More

Took the 6 man crew for lunch at Caroline's. The burgers were humongous and tasty. Lettuce wraps were gobbled but the crown prize was the shrimp and bacon club. OMG!! We found flavor town at the end of US1. What a unique sandwich. Attentive service and great food. What more could you ask for? Will repeat on every visit to... More

On busy Duval street, Caroline's surprised us when we found they had the best burger in town, great service only to be cut short by a driving rain storm. Nice Place.

Caroline's is more like a fast food place on a main strip in Key west. The food is mediocre and the service is OK. We ordered conch fritters and chicken wings for appetizers and jambalaya, pasta with chicken and broccoli and pasta with chicken and peppers as our main dish. The food was bland and nothing special. I would skip... More

This is a great place to eat and to watch the folks strolling up and down Duval. The fish sandwich had a huge piece of very tasty fried fish....twice the size of the bun! We were seated at a table slightly above and right next to the street. If you like people watching, this place can't be beat. The food... More

Had a great burger, better than I expected as it looks so touristy. They have a local pet rooster that wanders the retaurant. Perfect for lunch
