Rebecca was very personable and attentive to us. She did a great job. Because of her we'll be back. Her knowledge of the island and the restaurant 's history entertained us.

Service was good, food was average, third place we visited with dollar bills on the walls and ceilings so nothing exciting.Not much to do on the island but wait for the return boat. One time visit was alright but won't return.

Stopped by this restaurant for lunch this week (2-13-17) and what a unique place. The food was excellent and our waitress " Rebecca" was great. Her bright personality and history of the restaurant help make the day. I would highly recommend you make this a stop if you are on the Intercostal Channel!

Had a great stop at the classic Cabbage Key Inn/Restaurant. Staff are really friendly and helpful, and super fast - even serving the outdoor tables on a busy saturday. Rebecca was terrific! We enjoyed the key lime pie and the turtle pie, plus seeing the live turtles is very unique. They wander freely around the grounds. There is a tower... More

We have been taking best friends and relatives to Cabbage Key for years, whenever the opportunity allowed. Without exception, everyone enthusiastically tells us that the meal and nature environment of Cabbage Key was the highlight of their trip. This past weekend we had friends from Canada join us on our yacht (EverGreen IV) for a few day's cruise from Ft... More

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.
