Drinks were great. I had servers recommendation. Fish sandwich was the best I've ever had, great flavor. Best key lime I tasted in key west, and it's made at restaurant. Server was terrific. Very enthusiastic . A must go to restaurant in Key West.

We ordered in after checking in to Alexander's in the middle of dinner service; Caroline's delivered in less than 45 minutes. I had the shrimp Po'Boy and my partner had the Peel & Eat Shrimp. Awesome x3. There was SO much food! And it tasted wonderful! Highly recommended.

We just popped in here for a quick lunch. The burger I had was awesome! My wife assured me the blackened mahi-mahi burger she had was nice too. The atmosphere is nice and the service really good. I'll go back again in a heartbeat!

We had lunch during our trip. The shrimp po boy and fish sandwich were both excellent. Staff was friendly and attentive. We stopped back in later in the day for some frozen drinks which we enjoyed as well. Would definitely go back next time in Key West.

We ended up here rather late, with our party of 8 (3 kids) and were pleasantly surprised how wonderful our server Amy was. Honestly, you would've thought we were her first table of the day! We ordered peel and eat shrimp, Kingston chicken, quesadillas and a burger and everything top to bottom was terrific! I would highly recommend for grown... More

We ordered a variety of different foods + it was all excellent. Just the right amount of salad dressing + sauce. Our waitress was attentive, friendly + helpful. It was a nice touch to have the manager come by to make sure everything was good. There was a giant rooster sauntering thru for extra atmosphere.

Caroline's appealed to me after almost a week in Key West. After several nights of seafood, I was ready for a simple meal in a great environment. Caroline's Cafe sure delivered. My Cuban sandwich was both delicious and hearty, as was my wife's fish sandwich. Best of all was the great service from Patrick. The guy never missed a beat!... More

The peel and eat shrimp we got delivered to a house we had rented were amazing!! My husband had a club sandwich with the usual, plus shrimp and said it was incredible. He raved about that thing the entire trip!! The broccoli and chicken pasta was average, but there was lots of broccoli which I liked.

Went on a trip down to sea base with my troop and had lunch there right after we landed. The food was great and made a great start to our trip

Being our first time in Key West, we were a bit overwhelmed with all of the choices of places to eat and drink. Having traveled most of the day, we were looking for a casual place to grab a quick bite and drink before we retired for the evening. We happened upon Caroline's while strolling down Duval Street, and it... More
