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.

They made my entire stay worthwhile from the moment I stepped foot on the island. Love the laid back vibe but professional service of the inn and restaurant. Unique remote experience minutes away from the real world. Come see the beauty of the nature trail and the tortoises. I will definitely be back soon 💗

Third trip for a cheeseburger in paradise. If you have basic boating skills, rent a pontoon, follow the directions and chart and find this place. Dock master will get you parked, server like Marcie will make sure hunger and thirst are sated and you’ll want to leave a few markered dollar bills in addition to a generous tip. It will be one of the best memories from your trip. Even if the boat ride is bumpy and rainy. So worth it.

Thank goodness for Facebook or we would have never known about this gem of all hidden gems! We stayed two nights in room 5, which included a private screened in patio. From the patio, we observed red-bellied woodpeckers, osprey, cardinals, ducks, lightning bugs and many gopher tortoises. No TVs helped keep us disconnected from reality, and that was much needed, especially in these times!! The restaurant was better than we were expecting for a place cutoff from road travel. While the cheeseburger in paradise for lunch is good, it is much better at night when it's slower because the cooks aren't cranking out 900 of them. With that being said, don't sleep on the creative dinners the chef conjures up with the daily catches. We had two really outstanding pan-seared groupers dishes, one of which was served with a black bean puree and pico de gallo. The restaurant service was also exceptional. Debi was our waitress both nights, and she's quite the riot. Most notable, however, was Frank. This guy made us feel like were had been there a million times and happily chatted it up with us as business allowed. If you're wanting to check this place out, here are some tips. If you plan to walk the trails like we did, bring a good bug spray with deet. A helicopter sprays the island almost daily, but it's highly outmatched by the tenacity of those mosquitoes. Also, bring some snacks. There will be times that you might not want a full meal, which is about all the kitchen really offers. Lastly, climb the water tower. It offers both a great sunrise and sunset! Only complaint, the hide away door in the room needs to be fixed. Not a big deal for us, but it could be for more finicky guests.

Had lunch at Cabbage Key and Marcie was our server. She was great! The food was amazing, especially the Mahi Mahi Sandwich and Key Lime pie. Such a great little getaway for summer! Highly impressed! We saw one of the gopher tortoises there which was such a fun sight! This is the perfect place to eat and have a great time right on the water!

Great little spot to grab lunch as long as you have a boat to get there since it is on an island. Cheeseburger in paradise and a great smoked Mahi fish dip. Jamie was a great server, really took care of us!!!
