We have never been disappointed with cabbage key. It is fun on the outside- turtles 🐢, ducks 🦆 and otters wonder around. There is a lighthouse and if you geocache you can find that too. The restaurant itself has $1.00 bills hanging on the ceiling and walls of the dining rom and bar - somewhere between $80,000 and $100,000 hang... More

My wife and I visited the restaurant as part of out scenic cruise from Punta Gorda on one of the Kingfisher fleet boats. Since they're famous for inspiring Jimmy Buffets "Cheeseburger in Paradise", we just had to have one. Got to say it was one of the best burgers I've ever had. It was juicy, moist, and very flavorful. Wash... More

The restaurant has a limited menu but everything is excellent. I often have soup and a decadent dessert. The staff is friendly and efficient. The island is a great place to walk around and the views are beautiful. We usually take the ferry but hope to come in our boat and stay at the hotel. We have visited 5 or... More

We boated over with some friends and the food was great. And for the location, we felt it was reasonably priced as well. Cathy was our server and did a great job taking care of our party of 12. She even offered to give us the story of the island. And that was with a packed house of New Year's... More

I don't know how many times we've been here but we are never disappointed. The service is always excellent ---and this time was no exception. Rebecca gave us plenty of attention without hovering over us. She always knew just when to appear. I had the Mahi Rueben (not on the menu, but ask for it) and it came just as... More

This was our 1st trip to Cabbage Key. Lunch was great. The Key Lime Pie was very refreshing. Our server, Marcie, was super nice & attentive.

Our trips to Captiva over the past 20 years wouldn't be complete without a visit to Cabbage Key for lunch. And yes...the cheeseburgers are as good as they say. We just visited last week and Marcie was our waitress who went above and beyond. She even went as far as getting two dollar bills out of her own wallet for... 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.
