A couple of locals recommended this restaurant. The portions are large and the food is delicious. It is also reasonable priced. My husband ordered the chicken wraps and I wish I would have ordered them, too. The chicken and the sauce were incredible. I ordered Caroline's Famous Fish sandwich. It was delicious, but too much for me to eat. For... More

I seem to go to Caroline's at least once every time I go to KW. This time was late night on a Monday--just to get a quick bite after a long day at work. Service always quick, relaxed and professional, and food was great. We had the chicken sandwich and burger most recently, and both were very good. Certainly not... More

For my entrée I ordered the Blackened Chicken Pasta and it was so fresh and so good. It was a huge portion but I ate it all up! The Key Lime Pie for dessert was excellent!

Was down in Key West last week and had a great lunch at Carolines! The fish sandwich was awesome. Service was absolutely wonderful- Jade was our server. Would recommend this place for good food, excellent service and people watching on Duvall street.

We travel a lot and our favorite meal to try all over the world is a burger. When we saw that Caroline's is well-known for its burger, we jumped to try it. It certainly lived up to the hype. Nothing fancy, just a decent sized burger made with good ingredients. Loved it! They have nice cocktails too.

Best whole grain toast ever! We ate here twice during our 5 day trip. The porridge is quite good, and the red omelette is also really good. Great service, good food, nice location - what more can you ask for?

I had the yellowfin and greens. Generous portion of tuna rarely seared. I was surprised to get 9 slices of tuna. My husband had the Jambalaya. He's a Jambalaya junky and said he would return just to that dish. I asked our waiter Chris if there were happy hour prices and he explained they don't have happy hour pricing because... More

The food was amazing and so fresh. Everyone enjoyed and we had hardly any leftovers. The jambalaya and the cuban were my favorites but my mom loved the ahi tuna. The atmosphere is also great as you can sit on the patio right on Duval in the middle of all the action.

It was time to eat and we chose to stop in. We were seated right away and our server took our drink and food orders. Everything came quick. It was an enjoyable dinner. It was fun to people watch as we ate.
