During our visit to Duval street, we stopped for lunch at Carolina's cafe. The dining was outdoors. The menu included a nice variety, burgers, salads, sandwiches, etc. They also serve alcoholic beverages. We were kinda surprised by the pigeons that kept walking through the restaurant, but later discovered this is a thing in Key West. They walk around minding their... More

This is one of those places on Duval places that I would recommend. The dinners are great. The waiter we had was great. He was nice, very fun to talk to. I love to eat there and watch the people walk by in the evening.

Usually full and sometimes with a line. We went slightly off-season and wanted to sit outside for dinner but all of the tables were full. When the hostess started to go back into the restaurant to get us a table I told her we would wait for an outside table to become available. We were lucky; only had to wait... More

Relative to Key West, Caroline's is reasonably priced, the service and staff were outstanding, and the food was excellent. It has nice ambiance, it is on Duval Street, so you can do some fun people-watching while enjoying the excellent food.

We enjoyed our food and the atmosphere at Caroline's. The menu is mid range and has lots of choices. The dolphin sandwich was excellent. There are pigeons walking around everywhere under the tables. There were several families there with small children so it is a family friendly place. Great location to stop in for a cold beer and get back... More

Good location as it is on Duval street but definitely less action/noise. It's a good spot for kids as most restaurants on or around Duval street are bars and are not kid friendly. Conch fritters were a little oily but overall the food was very good. Nice portions and great kid meals. Staff is also very nice.

Thank Kurt S
