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.

We arrived by boat around noon on the Saturday of Memorial Day Weekend. Cabbage Key was packed, but we were able to find a boat slip with the help of the well-tipped dockmaster. Staff did a great job of taking care of the crowds and moving through the tables. Outside is first come, first serve and that was our spot.... More

Had lunch on the patio. Matt was our server and he was EXCELLENT. Not only did he give wonderful service he was also a plethora of information about the area. We really enjoyed out visit with him.

This place is so cool. Dollar bills hang off the wall and the restaurant. We are told when they fall off the wall they are given to charity and about 30k is on there normally. Try a cabbage creeper. Too many will have you creeping on the floor The smoked salmon appetizer is also good. For a light lunch the... More

My son and daughter in law had a beach wedding, and we had the rehearsal dinner at Cabbage Key. Everyone had such a great time and the food was delicious! Everyone at Cabbage Key was so accommodating, patient, and pleasant even though we were so late and disorganized arriving! No one made us feel anything other than very, very welcome!!... More

Well, Janette31 and GunnerAZ listed in Cabbage Key Inn summed it up to a T! From the minute we pulled up we were greeted with an terse disposition because we did not know how to pull up a rental boat. After being made to feel totally embarrassed in front of a patio full of guests we still gave the place... More

My husband and I took a boat ride over to Cabbage Key while staying on Captiva Island and we had lunch at the Cabbage Key Inn Restaurant. The restaurant is quaint, relaxed, comfortable and friendly. The staff welcome their guests warmly and are extremely friendly and generous! The restaurant itself has rich history and tradition. The food was quite delicious... More

If you have guests from out of town then I guess this is a good tourist trap. Can only get to the island by boat or chopper. Everything is overpriced but the food isn't bad. Not a lot of options on the menus but then again once you're there they got you. They're also related to the restaurant on pine... More

Thank you for writing about your recent visit to Cabbage Key. Our sister resort on Pine Island is called the Tarpon Lodge. It is a 1920's lodge overlooking the Pine Island Sound. You can eat an amazing dinner or sip a cocktail on the porch while watching the sunset. Hope to see you again soon! More

Great drinks & great food in a historical setting. It's like stepping back in time when you enter the building. The staff was very accommodating for our group of twenty-couldn't have been nicer!

Let's get the things I'm referring to as "quirks" out of the way...with the understanding that others may not consider them to be quirks at all. • There is no fried food. You will not have fried seafood, you will not get fries with that burger, your kids will not get fries with that grilled cheese sandwich. I didn't ask... More

I would like to thank you for writing about your recent visit to Cabbage Key. Your comments about our "quirks" are pretty spot-on! Sorry...nothing fried! You are more than welcome to drink the tap water...it is from a well and is potable. But, most guests do not like it and opt for the bottled water - which is $2.50 a... More
