Caroline's is a place with outside seating and needless to say they are always busy. If you do not mind the wait the conch fritters and chowder are worth the wait

Good margaritas but less so the mojitos. Sit on the bar rail overlooking Duval and watch the variety of humanity walk by. Good chicken fingerlings and shrimp. Reasonably priced and good service

Caroline's was recommended to us, and we are so glad we went there! I had the salad with fresh tuna, my husband chose the fried chicken salad with bacon and maple pecans - yum! The portions were good and the service was terrific. Our server, Rachel, was friendly, efficient and courteous, with a great smile. We sat outside on the... More

I went to Carolines for lunch. I had one of the best hamburgers ever. The meat was well cooked and well seasoned. Our waitress was very good and we really enjoyed our lunch

Ample, tasty, and fairly priced, served by Brian, who provided such attentive and friendly service that I can't remember getting any better in 5 star restaurants. My girlfriend had the shrimp po boy and I managed to steal a few shrimp as her sandwich was overstuffed. Those shrimp were fantastic! My Cuban sandwich was absolutely delicious, and the Duval street... More

Had lunch at Caroline's yesterday (mid-August). It was a very hot day but the temperature at Caroline's is quite comfortable given their shade, fans and misters. The manager came over and welcomed us. Lauren, our server, was attentive, efficient, professional and friendly. Her service level was excellent. The food was also excellent. The portions are more than we could (or... More

Of all the places we ate at in 4 days in Key West this was easily the best for food and service. Our server's name was Anthony and he was very attentive and courteous. We were seated immediately in a cool area of the café and served ice water as we sat down. The first time we were there we... More
