Limited menu, ok food, good service. Annoying music and uninteresting setting.

People rating this 5 stars must be unaccustomed to eating great food. There is nothing terribly wrong with this place but nothing excellent either.

The Conch fritters were hot and delicious! The Boston lettuce wraps with grilled shrimp were outstanding. My 12-yr old opted for the kids menu and enjoyed his chicken bites. My Dolphin sandwich (grilled mahi-mahi) was only average, but it was basically what I expected so I wasn’t disappointed. My wife also had a Key Lime lemonade cocktail which she thoroughly enjoyed. We went at 5:30 and did not have to wait in line to be seated. The main courses came out extraordinarily fast, and we were off to see the sunset by 6:30. I’d definitely recommend this establishment to the hungry, thirsty, and foot-sore tourist.

Had dinner here on a Saturday night in high season, so the experience may vary at other times of the year. First, the positive points: Our party of six was seated fairly quickly. The lettuce wrap I ordered was excellent - very tasty! A couple of things bring this place down from "good" to "average": The mixed drinks were so-so - can find much MUCH better in other places along Duval Street. And the bathroom was disgusting - it looked as though it hadn't been cleaned in ages. There are so many dining options in Key West that a restaurant really has to go above and beyond to be considered above average.

Had a late lunch at Caroline's and it was very delicious. Ordered conch fritters to start and a fish sandwich, both were very tasty.

Visited here several times during our trips to Key West. Bartender and servers are very attentive. The food is consistently tasty and plentiful. The burgers are big enough for two people ! We’ve enjoyed the Jambalaya on several occasions. It’s packed with seafood and sausage with just the right amount of spice. Definitely worth a visit (or two) when in the area !
