We stopped in for a quick ice cream and appetizer snack after spending the day on the beach. What a cute spot! We sat outside and the service was great. My 10 year old LOVES calamari and theirs did not disappoint. Can't wait to go back for a real meal.

Had a great lunch, there were six of us in our party, all were very pleased with our meal. We sat outside and our waitress was very attentive. The price was reasonable as well.

Every time we stay in Boca Grande or the area, we come to the Loose Caboose for Key Lime Pie and coffee. The sandwiches are good, too, but we like the atmosphere and the pie the best. Prices are a little steep, but it is Boca Grande.

Expect to pay a little bit more as it is Boca Grande, but sitting outside watching the world go by in such a wonderful place is worth it. The thanksgiving wrap is delicious, the servers are pleasant and attentive and there's always something to look at. Minutes from the Gulf of Mexico, and there's often a pleasant and welcome breeze,... More

Renee makes the best ice cream on Gasparilla Island! If they have it, get the "Banana Pudding" ice cream! I've literally been back for it everyday. Quite possibly the best ice cream I've ever had! Great texture and flavor with a little vanilla wafer. Yum yum!

Stopped in for lunch on a beautiful October day and sat outside enjoying the weather at this small lunch spot right on the corner of the main drag. The menu features a nice variety of sandwiches and salads. Looking for something lighter with a local twist I opted for the crab cake salad. I was a little disappointed in the... More
