On a recent stop in Key West in the pouring rain we stopped at Caroline's Cafe for lunch. My husband had the Cuban sandwich which he said was the best he ever had and I had the grilled shrimp salad which was huge and very tasty. The service was super and it was nice to people watch while having lunch.... More

Forget the conch fritters, burger is big and good, but needed some salt and pepper, better than being overseasoned. Chicken sandwich is big as well. Fries are crispy. But average.

Our first night in Key West we were searching the menu boards for both the food and the price. Many of the prices were startling. When we perused the menu board for Caroline's it seemed too good to be true. Retaining some skepticism, we entered. The place was crowded, but we were able to get a table. Our server Dewey... More

Service was very good. The salads are excellent. Decor is relaxed and pleasant. This was a nice stop for lunch on a hot day We did not try the key lime pie but it looked good Maybe next time.

Caroline's has a big noisy deck, but the food is very good. For lunch, we had surprisingly nice and large salads and sandwiches. We were tired, it was raining, and the soggy deck didn't seem that appealing, but the staff were welcoming and the food so good that we left delighted that we'd stopped by. The prices were very reasonable.

Great dinner at very reasonable prices. The service was great even with a short wait. I highly recommend this place to any type of group...eclectic crowd with couples, families and groups of friends.
