This place is wonderful and well worth the trip, especially if you have your own boat. Everyone is so pleasant and helpful the food is great and the rooms are like you have stepped back in time to old florida. We arrived just after lunch and there were a lot of people finishing up and departing, then by the evening... More

We ate lunch twice here and just loved it! The view is spectacular and is great entertainment for boat watching! The burgers and drinks are great but the best part was our server, Megan! After the second time we felt like old friends! A must place to go!

We just stayed in cabbage, you need your own boat (the ones they rent are old skiffs), the people are amazing and the food is decent... Bring a case of water with you, as you can only drink bottled water. The dock master gets a bad rap, we thought he was awesome! Treat him well, and he will take care... More

First of all after reading so many negative reviews I had to write a review to set some things straight. I am guessing all the complainers should have been staying at a 5 star resort where they can be pampered! LOL Cabbage Key is old Florida! I would say the people that don't like the dock master are probably newbies... More

We have stayed here before but at the "Doll House". This time we lodged at "Cabbage Patch" which is a 2 bedroom/2 bath cottage. Both cottages are quaint, old Florida feel, and fun to stay at. We secured our little boat to the corresponding docks each time which allowed a quick departure for the day to local beaches, state parks,... More

Dockmaster is an arrogant jerk. Him alone is reason enough not to visit this place. Hotel service just as rude. They treated our family with no respect the entire time. After a couple grand and 2 days on the Island we could wait to leave to shake the unwelcoming feeling we had since the moment we arrived. DO NOT WASTE... More

I fell in love with the Old World Florida feel! We went on a Sunday, so it was very busy. The wait was not bad, though. The food was excellent (I recommend the Rueben!) Debi, our waitress was a hoot! She made the trip worthwhile all by herself! I look forward to returning!!!

Cabbage Key is truly a great escape. We loved our stay in the Rinehart Cottage. Evening walk on the island and boating to Cayo Costa were fun things we enjoyed doing. The Inn's restaurant has the best hamburgers! And the sunset is amazing. Can't wait to get back.

We were out on the intercostal and stopped here. This place is only accessible by boat and is amazing. Our tour guide ( and brother I law) suggested stopping for some refreshment. The bar was great though not air conditioned, try the cabbage creeper, a Pina Colada with a shot of Kailua, normally not what I would go for but... More

We’re very glad to hear you enjoyed our open-air bar and restaurant. Every dollar that falls from our walls is donated to various local charities, somewhere around $10,000 every year! Although Jimmy Buffet didn’t actually write his “Cheeseburgers in Paradise” song at Cabbage Key, he did dedicate one of his performances of that song to some of our staff, after... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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. ... more   less
