Having rented a boat and having previously researched the area we set off from Cape Coral with the objective of making Cabbage Key our destination, have a great lunch and then head back in the afternoon. All was good, we arrived at CK to be directed to a mooring too small to take out boat, after the dockmaster then realised that he had made an error he directed us to a more suitable area. So, we're here...let's have a great lunch....or so we thought. 2 adults and 3 kids, we ordered different things from the Clam Chowder to salads and a burger, none of which was particularly good. We sat outside at concrete tables and benches, far from comfortable. The food arrived, as did the drinks.......a Budweiser in a can, Cokes that were 3/4 full of ice and no refills....policy of Cabbage Key! So what can I say, I wouldn't bother going back no would I have taken the time and effort to go on this occasion had I known that it was average at best, no not even average......food served on styrofoam plates, cheap plastic cutlery....not for me. I gave given a poor rating, maybe it should have been terrible but I feel generous today.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- 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. ... more less
