“Perfect lunch spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2013

Salads and lettuce wraps are delicious. Fun spot to people watch right on Duval St. The owner/manager talking with patrons was a nice touch.

“The birds don't bite”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2013

Good outdoor dining at good prices. Usual bar food with a couple twists. Fun to watch people go to Hard Rock across the street and pay more for not-as-good food. There will be pigeons and maybe a rooster wandering around. Don't feed them.

Nice place, had a fish sandwich, & it was good. It was hot & no ocean view. Food was good, but not great.

“Ladies who lunch see Lisa!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

Carolines Cafe on Duval is a cool tiki hut style bar, and as with all of the restaurants in this collection, the food is great, but LISA behind the bar is the reason I go. Lisa's southern charm has her patrons mingling with one another, locals and visitors alike. I typically order salad, and there are some great entree sized salads on the menu. The fried fish sandwich is monstrous and delicious and the Reverend Joe's burger is a favorite as well. One tip: if you order the salad check to make sure it is not water logged..the weak link in a great lineup...drain the greens!

“Great food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013 via mobile

The food was so good. We were waited on quickly, there were 4 of us. The food came out fast enough, and no mistakes. I had the best blackened chicken pasta. Our servers were Brent, and Doug. Good work guys.
