Caroline's is right on Duval St and open air. It is busy busy ! We had a small wait but got seated pretty quickly. The menu is pretty much what you'd expect and the food is OK, nothing special. Also we found the service pretty brusque, our waitress really wasn't interested but it was a busy night. On the plus... More

Our daughter was being a little fussy because she wanted to try our drinks and of course she couldn't so our waitress made her kids drink with cherries and she... More

This is a great place to have a bite to eat. If I remember right, I had the Cajun blackened chicken sandwhich and I think my husband had the Mahi Mahi sandwich. It was delicious! And the key lime pie is fabulous! Reasonably priced. I do recommend.

Six of us each ordered six different entrees and we all thought they were great. We did not want "bar food" and Caroline's was recommended and came through. We all are in the 50-62 range and it was nice to relax ,eat, and not have a band blasting. My daughter's friend who lived 4 years in Key West loved the... More

I give this restaurant my highest recommendation for so many reasons. The food is fresh, and so tasty. I was here in January with my girlfriends and came back when I went with my husband and friends last weekend. I have sampled most of the appetizers and each one is better than the last. I especially love the dolphin fingers... More

From the street Caroline's looks like a tourist trap. Give it a try. The cocktails are freshly made, food is fresh and well prepared and service is friendly.
