We went on a family trip and ate at Caroline's on a rainy summer night. The food was Delicious, the staff was attentive. The big umbrella's covered each table perfectly. And the fist was the best I have ever tasted. Highly recommend it.

Went to Carolines on our last night. We ate yellow tail snapper and the blue cheese burger. Food was awesome - best blue cheese burger ever and snapper was excellent too. Key lime pie was superb too. Above all our waiter, Dewey, was the true professional - he checked we were ok without being obtrusive. Nothing was too much trouble.... More
