Wonderful lunch spot! The rooster named "Abby" is beautiful. He walks around the restuarant strutting and looking for a little snack. Their fish sandwich is awesome, mild sweet white fish.

Key West is a city of bars, and we hit our fair share of them! Our favorite bartender was Tommy (Thomas)! He was awesome - friendly, efficient, fast, and clean - he took excellent care of us! I highly recommend stopping by Caroline's and having Tommy serve you. On my next Key West visit, you'll find me on one of... More

I went to Key West for a brief weekend trip and stopped by Caroline's, while the location is excellent the food and service was below average for what one would expect. My son had the mac and cheese and it was horrible, I would've preferred Kraft to the mess they served, while I don't expect to have a five star... More

Key West what a place .... It's the Caribbean right on your door steps. What's not to love! It's expensive but with a little help it's not so bad. A word of advise stop at the welcome centres and talk to your hotel. You can get GREAT savings for drinks and meals. Caroline's Cafe is one of my favorite restaurants... More

Caroline's was recommended by a local, and we are glad we chose it for our first dinner in Key West. The atmosphere was great--you're right on Duval so you can't miss it. We had a GREAT waiter--very friendly and so attentive even though the restaurant was very busy. The food came quickly, and the portions were very hearty. The food... More

I would definitely stop in and get at least a lunch. They made a great salad that me and the wife loved. We tried not eating so heavy on/off during vacation. The Mgr walks around asking how everything is, which is real good for business. Price was reasonable for the portions. Right on Duval in middle of action. stop in

Attentive staff and great atmosphere at Caroline's in Key West. Food was hit-or-miss for me. The cold Peel-and-Eat Shrimp were fantastic, but the cheesecake dessert wasn't my favorite. The fish sandwiches were massive, I wish I would've ordered that for my entree.

Excellent food at reasonable prices right on Duval Street. We're locals and stop in often. I usually get one of their huge fresh salads, but there are many choices on the menu. Service is friendly, and It's a great spot for people watching too.
