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.

Overnight at the marina. Found the bar/ restaurant friendly and accommodating.

Matt, our server,was knowledgeable and personable. The food was excellent. The best we found on the ICW. I would highly recommend a stop in Cabbage Key.

First decent thing I ate all week while staying in Captiva. Had a cheeseburger and it was good. This restaurant is unique and interesting. Rented a pontoon boat for the day to visit Cabbage Key. A little expensive but our best day in Captiva.

Jen Bell was our server. Exceptional service, great conversation, amazing food! Breakfast and dinner twice and a box lunch for our beach excursion. Can't say enough about the entire staff. Looking forward to a return trip.

We had a party of 16 and Jessica our waitress. She was extremely attentive and was very personable. She informed us of the history of the island. Our food was served in a timely fashion and was very tasty. I never saw the bottom of my tea cup, which is one way I judge the level of service I received.... More

What an amazing island, restaurant and staff! We stayed in the Harborview Cottage and had the time of our lives! The cottage had everything we needed including a visiting manatee and plenty of fish to catch! At the Inn we dined on hand cut steaks, whole hog fish and of course the Cabbage Key world famous cheeseburger. Chef Chris out... More

I love this place. I can't stress how much I love coming here. It was my third visit, and this time I got to bring my kids. The cheeseburgers are great, however, be aware that there are no fries!

Well worth the boat ride. Very nice island with trails to hike. Lunch was excellent and staff was great. Marcie was our waitress and was very attentive. Plenty of seating indoor and out. Accommodates parties of 8-10 at one table. We will be back.

Going by boat, we went to the restaurant friends. The setting is beautiful and definitely provides a relaxing yesteryear feeling. We were there for lunch and the atmosphere was fun and interesting (with all the dollar bills taped on the walls, ceiling, posts, etc.). We all ordered cheeseburgers and I can only speak for mine. It was dry and hard... More
