“Nice dinner”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 8, 2014

We recently stopped by for a family dinner with 3 small kids. We ate inside as opposed to the outside river dining area (heard one of the locals talk about how bad the bugs were that night). Waitstaff was attentive. Wine list small. Fish dinners were excellent. Crab cakes and, of course, raw oysters had great taste. Portions were large in size. The tuna appetizers could easily pass for a dinner entree.

“Dogs are welcome in a screened porch!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 5, 2014

We had several meals, including breakfast, big dinner and light dinner. The dogs loved the screened porch seating and so did we. Beautiful views and bug free. Try the Oyster Cakes for breakfast. All the food was delicious.

“Kennedy family”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2014 via mobile

Caroline's is fabulous! My family and I have visited St. George island for over 14 years now and Caroline's in Apalach is always a must. The food, service, and atmosphere is awesome. An old world Florida treasure. Can't wait for our next trip, our youngest daughter carries her namesake. Till next time.... ;)

“Very Good Dinner Relaxation”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 27, 2014

This restaurant, on the water in a quaint town, provided a very good evening of dinner and relaxation for us. The food was not the type of meal that would rate excellent in fancy restaurants, but it was a very good meal. The best part was being out on the dock by the water. You can easily rest here.
