We rented a boat from Captiva to Island Marker 60 to visit the legendary "Cabbage Key Restaurant" & enjoyed every moment! Of course we enjoyed our "Cheeseburgers in Paradise" (we are from New Jersey after all!) & was amazed by the testimonies of people who had visited before us, in the form of one dollar bills! The day was beautiful,...

You’re the first to describe our place as legendary, and we love it! All of our staff were very pleased to hear your glowing words of praise for them! On any given day, there’s about $70,000 of $1 bills hanging from our walls. Some have been there for years, and every dollar that falls is donated to various local charities....

We had a small family reunion and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We rented one of the cottages - Snook Cottage which was quaint and comfortable.

We’re very glad to hear you enjoyed your stay with us for your family reunion! The Snook Cottage is one of our larger accommodations, with 3 bedrooms, 2 baths and a full kitchen.

Ordered a Reuben, it was delicious! Glad I didn't order a burger like the rest of them did! They could hardly find the beef patty, had so much bun and a little fat burger inside! Come on, even if you have to make the burger flatter and least get in to the edge of the bun!

Thank you for your feedback on your dining experience. Your comments on the burgers have been passed on to our kitchen management, who deal with our food vendors that supply our bread. Our burgers are hand-formed, to ensure they retain the juices and flavor throughout the cooking process. We’re very glad you enjoyed your Reuben sandwich and invite you to...

Great place to visit by boat. Island and restaurant are very unique. We had lunch. Pass on the burgers. Stick with the local choices. Stone crabs when in season are your best bet, Don't expect anything fancy!

My first visit back in 40 years. Didn't have time to explore the island, but the expansion and upgrades are tasteful and respectful of the Old Florida vibe that this unique property represents. Still, much the same. Very pituresque. The restraunt was packed, but the service was great. Our drinks and apps came out fast... lunch portions were generous but...

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
