“Try The Jambalaya”
Reviewed April 30, 2014

This place is great! It's a sidewalk cafe, making it a fun place for people watching (in the people-watching capital of the world). The menu is varied and the portions generous. The staff are all very friendly and the service is great. I had the jambalaya and it was delicious...in fact I had it twice on this trip! My server's name was Allison, and you'd be fortunate to have her serve you. She was very helpful choosing from their delicious menu items. She was also friendly and attentive (as most of Caroline's staff are). I'd recommend Caroline's to anyone visiting Key West!

“Thanks, TripAdvisor”
Reviewed April 28, 2014

I learned about this restaurant from reading reviews on TripAdvisor. It was much like it was described. We ate a late lunch and had about a 15 min. wait for a table. Our server was so pleasant. We had a shrimp poboy and a hamburger. Both were good. I did see others ordering the salads, and they looked very good. We would return.

Loved the outdoor courtyard dining. Food was great. People watching on Duval Street was very interesting.

“Great food, consistently”
Reviewed April 25, 2014

We've been to Caroline's many times as we visit Key West often to see our son Captain Kyle Kelso. The food and service are always great. This is the second time I've had something with Ahi Tuna - before it was the salad which is huge and amazing. This time I had it as an appetizer with some greens and along with a bowl of very good and not too spicy conch chowder was a perfect sized meal for me. Our server Jennifer gets 5 stars also for great service!
