Had a really great dinner right on Duval St. Food was fantastic, at a very reasonable price, and the service was friendly and fast. Very attentive server. Great people watching as you sit right outside on Duval.

Visited Caroline's today with the family. The shrimp po boy and key lime pie was amazing. The service was fast. Our waitresses Lisa and Saige were great and extremely helpful. Will visit again!

Received good service for as busy as it was. Food arrived within a reasonable amount of time and was very good. Good family restaurant in the middle of crazy Key West. If you can get a seat upfront, it could be a good people watching place.

The covered patio had a great breeze. The service was prompt and our orders came quickly. Our group of 5 enjoyed the shrimp po' boy, mahi ("dolphin") sandwich, portabella sandwich, shrimp club sandwich, and a hamburger. Healthy portions (large) of sandwich and fries.

Especially considering the cost, this was our favorite meal during our stay - and we had already dined at two of the top-ranked restaurants. My wife and I both had huge salads, shared a shrimp app which was quite clearly freshly caught, and each had a drink, all for around for around $45. Compared to a meal the night before... More

Place was very dirty and the inside of men's restroom door was black on a white door. Hate to see the kitchen . Food was ok.

We chanced into Caroline's among all the options in Duval Street, and we were very glad we did. We had a table with a good view of the passing parade, under a huge umbrella. I had an excellent Mahi-Mahi sandwich, a generous portion, well cooked (butter and herbs--spicy blackened was an option, but I wanted to taste the fish) with... More
