We looked at the positive reviews of Caroline's on Trip Advisor, and decided to try it with our friends and their 3 year old son. We found the experience very positive, with the obligatory mac 'n' cheese for the toddler and a great selection for we 4 adults. While it is certainly not gourmet, the food is prepared well and...

We came to carolines to escape a sudden rain shower. It was jumping at 1PM. There seemed to be some issue with getting our waiter over because "he's very busy". Fair enough someone was there to pick up the slack. We started with conch fritters a Key West standard, unfortunately there was little conch, and plenty of filler. I ordered... More

Still one of the best burgers and in my opinion the best cuban sandwich on the island. One of the friendliest places to eat.

Few locations are better at combining great food with a view to watch the sights on Duval Street. Sit in the bar area or table area at this open air restaurant. The food is consistently good. This is one of those casual places where everything on the menu is great. We usually order the chicken broccolini, shrimp club or catch... More

Great selection and quality of food with truly wonderful attention to detail with servers. We all enjoyed our selections from Steak sandwiches to a fabulous huge salad with bacon & chicken nuggets that was also a yummy lunch !:)

We stopped to get some food in our bellies before hitting the Porch next door for craft beers. We were pleasantly surprised at how good the food was, and the giant portions. Two people can get away with sharing one item, if you're not super hungry. We had buffalo wings--good and crispy; chicken Thai lettuce wraps (enough for about 6... More

Recommended by a local. Had a table right at the sidewalk so we could see what was going on on Duvall. Very nice waitress and food was very good. (Cuban mix, pasta). Had plenty of seafood on menu also for those seafood lovers (l don't happen to be one). Can't go wrong here!
