Great sandwiches. The absolute best burgers on the island!! Take a break from seafood nite and indulge in the finest burger or the bestest Cuban ever. But I caution you, come hungry. I'm a big guy and could only eat half the burger set before me. And few of the pound of fries that accompanied it. Also it is one... More

Came here for dinner. We quickly got a table and were waited on by an extremely personable waiter. We ordered the bruschetta, which was absolutely great. The Boston salad was also a highlight. The "salad" is actually a Asian inspired lettuce wrap with delicious shrimp. The plate is big enough for two hungry adults. All and all, a great stop!

My boyfriend and I were in town for the first time and it was our first night out. We came to Caroline's and it looked cute so we decided to give it a try. It was nice to sit outside and our waitress was lovely, but the food is very average. Do not go here expecting a great meal. We... More

If you get anything in Key West, you must try their fried fish sandwich. Not only is it fall off the plate huge but it's delicious too - light and flaky with just the right amount of breading. The wings were good enough, tangy and tasty and you get a lot of them. The yellowfin tuna salad was better with... More

Visited for a quick lunch while checking out Key West, had a great bar right overlooking Duval Street. Food was great, service was good. Definitely will be going back next trip.

This place is great. Cheaper prices than the other restaurants in the area. The staff is very VERY friendly. So, check this place out. It's well worth it.

Here is where you can buy the BEST Key Lime pie!!! It beats the other stand-alone pie shops in Key West. A bit larger slice and with the whipped cream! You can buy the whole pie at this restaurant rather than a piece. Its better priced even if its a couple of dollar pricier due to larger slice and taste... More

We stopped here for lunch one day while exploring key west. It was always packed and I love to eat al fresco (there aren't any "inside" tables here). I had the quesadillas and a key lime margarita and both were good. Nothing spectacular or gourmet or one of those special recipes you'd only get in key west, but a tasty,... More
