Cabbage Key is a 100 acre island located five miles off of Pine Island, FL in the Pine Island Sound. The Inn, built in the 1940's by the family of Mary Roberts Rinehart, now houses our famous Restaurant & Dollar Bill Bar and six guest rooms. The rooms in the Inn are all different with old Florida charm - they do not have TVs, phones, or refrigerators. We have seven cottages on the island, ranging from a 1 bedroom/1 bath cottage to 3 bedroom/3 bath waterfront units. All cottages have refrigerators, televisions (no cable) and coffee makers, some units have full kitchens. Our restaurant is open seven days a week and serves breakfast, lunch & dinner. If you want to relax on a beach...we do not have one here. But, Cayo Costa is a close kayak or boat ride away. This is a great retreat to discover "Old Florida", relax with a book, fish from our docks & watch the boats go by.

From the moment we arrived at the island of Cabbage Key in SW Florida and walked up to the restaurant on the hill with the breath- taking view, Makyla greeted us and offered us beverages while we waited for our preferred outside seating. Makyla was so swee tand efficient with a great sense of humor, and warm smile. My favorite... More

We went at night, as we had a boat and anchored nearby. Expensive, touristy ( no locals!) and service was spotty ... waiter forget to bring dressing, brought wrong dishes, etc. No water served with the meal unless it is bottled water (a small plastic bottle for $2.75). Mahi-mahi was small and overcooked. A unique setting, for sure, but food... More

We boated out to Cabbage Key Restaurant for lunch with friends. We were seated promptly; Marcie our waitress did a good job. The dollar Bills on the walls and ceiling were interesting and the T-Shirts the servers were wearing with "Answers". BUT the shrimp salad sandwich was about a small ice cream scoop size on a VERY large BUN...disappointing! We... More

While staying on Pine Island I had the opportunity to travel across the sound to Cabbage Key and got to sample what life Old Florida Style! We enjoyed a delightful boatride and an amazing lunch of Stone Crabs and homemade desserts in a dining room that took us back to another time in Florida. Although we didn't sample the burgers...

The history of this place is great! The scenery is gorgeous!! The fact that you cannot get there by car makes the boat ride (however you arrange it) exciting to see Florida's Southwest waters!! Now the down side, the food is average and very expensive. The "Cheeseburger in Paradise" is your best bet. However, that is at the cost of... More

We've eaten here many times over the past few years and ALWAYS enjoy the atmosphere, the food, and especially the view. I usually order the mahi mahi sandwich, but this time I ordered a mahi rueben (not on the menu, but ask for it). Delicious!! But the highlight of the day this time was our server, Matt Ping. He was... More
