#1 of 3 B&Bs / Inns in Bokeelia
Travelers' Choice
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.

If you are in Sanibel or Captiva, plan to rent a boat at Jensens Marina and head to Cabbage Key for lunch and to explore. We had delicious hamburgers and Bloody Mary’s. Our waiter was Andrew. He gave us all the history and information about the island, inn and restaurant. He was the best.

Today’s lunch at the Cabbage Key was one to remember. The weather was perfect, the staff was friendly and attentive (we especially enjoyed getting to know Lydia), and our food and drinks were delicious. Everything about the key was relaxing and picturesque.

Stay here whenever we can, food is amazing, 5 star...I've eaten at some of the finest restaurants in the country, food here is as good or better, Chef is amazing, staff is always friendly. Doll house is very quaint and romantic. It has a.private dock with seating and you can sit out there and watch the sunset. Bar is right out of a Humphrey Bogart movie, very warm and full of history. Rob Wells, the owner. created the dream, and his son Stephen, carries on the tradition.

The service was good. The server recommended the fish dip and told us it was “to die for”. I have to completely disagree. The fish dip at The Navigator is half the price and 10x better. The food is pricey as I expected. The potato salad wasn’t good, but the grilled Mahi sandwich was. After leaving the restaurant I had been charged not only for my meal but I had an additional $2,200 charge from the restaurant. Overall, I was not happy with the experience and we will not be going back.

We decided to take a day trip to Cabbage Key and were not disappointed. The Captiva Cruise was very interesting and informative. At the restaurant we all had amazing cheeseburgers with tasty potato salad. Our server, Nicole, was great and had answers to any questions we had. Will definitely go back.
