“Looked good, but....”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 12, 2013

Too crowded. Way too long a wait for a table. Walk down the block in either direction and other places with just as good looking menus are open and waiting. Sometimes a good thing and too much publicity just turns a place off. Our recommendations - walk a short distance to other places.

“Good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 12, 2013

Good food and prices. Great spot to people watch and the Bloody Mary was excellent. The owner was very friendly and stopped at each table to thank patrons for choosing his restaurant.

“Great place in Keywest”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 11, 2013

We came to Caroline's based on other trip advisor's recommendations. We sat outside and cooled off under the misting fans. It was nice to watch the people walk by and the occasional rooster walk by the table. Everyone in our party ordered the famous fish sandwich. YUMMY! It lived up to its reputation. As I looked around at other people's orders, the food looked just as good. We had to head back to our boat, but would have loved to stay to try another entree for another meal. The service was excellent. The waiter was very friendly and prompt. Add me to list of those who recommend Caroline's.

“OUTDOOR CASUAL EATING!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 11, 2013

Great for lunch! Perhaps you'll make a rooster friend! I absolutely LOVED the friend chicken salad with corn (I can't remember the name of it) but it was delicious!!!!! Friendly, casual atmosphere with great view of all the action on Duval.
