Ate here on a day trip to Boca Grande from Captiva Island. Fun to tool around the island (actually, I think it may be a peninsula) in a rented golf cart and have lunch at the Loose Caboose. Burger and fries and grouper sandwich casual island style in baskets- very tasty.

Great food in the best location! The Boca Wrap is a must: grouper fingers, rice and beans in a burrito... delish! The Cobb salad and Grouper sandwich is fabulous too. Don't forget to leave room for their homemade ice cream: there's good reason it was Kate Hepburn's favorite ice cream!

I've been here a couple times with a friend and the salads are really good! The key lime pies just like anywhere else you go in Florida, will be good! We sat outside in a beautiful October day, I personally do not like sitting outside in the months of May- September but sitting outside was lovely! I encourage more people to come to the loose caboose! The ice cream shop is my favorite, maybe more flavors? But hey, still wonderful! No complaining over here!

We sat outside under a comfortable umbrella on a hot afternoon. Nice menu with many offerings. Very nice server. We had a shrimp wrap (delicious gulf shrimp) and the Grouper wrap (fresh grouper)! We had the fried green tomato app which was a bit disappointing- there were 5 very thin slices of tomato and they were very oily (w/oil in the basket). Awesome Key Lime pie!!

If you come here to eat with friends know that you can't have separate checks. Only one check per table! How ridiculous. Not great food either.
