It was huge and delicious- plenty of beans,corn, chicken, all with a tasty dressing. And the rum punch was the best. Our server was cheerful and very... More

As apart of my food tour in Key West, I stopped by Caroline's Cafe based on my sister in laws recommendation. I usually don't take her suggestions at face value, but what the heck! Might as well try it. I had the dolphin fingers and the shrimp and bacon club. The club was decent, nothing that I would get again,... More

Nice street side setting, outdoor seating, positive atmosphere, friendly wait staff, talented bartender - fun to watch! Great for watching people stroll by while taking a load off your feet. Great char-grilled mahi mahi & salads!

There's so many places to eat in Key West but we liked the idea of a table on the street to people watch. We had a salad and conch fritters- both were delicious and just enough to eat late at night. The owner/ manager was going table to table speaking to customers which is unheard of these days. Nice experience-... More

We looked at the positive reviews of Caroline's on Trip Advisor, and decided to try it with our friends and their 3 year old son. We found the experience very positive, with the obligatory mac 'n' cheese for the toddler and a great selection for we 4 adults. While it is certainly not gourmet, the food is prepared well and...
