This is an island, only accessible by boat. We came over on a local charter. The island was beautiful. The waterfront view from our patio table was spectacular. Our server, Mykyla, took amazing care of us, and our hostess, Dorothy, took time to tell us about the history of the island and the Caloosa Indians that once lived here. They... More

Everything was great - came by boat with friends for lunch on May 20, 2017. Debi, Marci, Dorothy and Marlene all helped us - great people and very good at what they do. Would recommend Cabbage Key to anyone - if you want to be back in "old Florida", this is the destination. Great food and staff was awesome.

This is one of those places that BLOWS your mind the first time - it's so unique and novel - but perhaps by the 5th time, you're a bit over it.... Found the dock master gruff, salty, unfriendly- just a grumpy guy. And he's your first impression- so THAT'S a bad marketing plan. He should be WELCOMING people.... The gift... More

Our server, Holly, took incredible care of us as we sipped our custom made margaritas, had a cheeseburger in paradise and one of the best mahi Mahi sandwiches ever made. The dockmaster made sure docking was easy and safe as the only way there is ferry or boat. A wonderful place for a tropical lunch.

Set out to have lunch here in January 2017 but had to turn back due to an oil pump issue. Finally re-attempted the trip on Good Friday. Easy to find once we were in the IW - just follow the crowd! While we did have to wait for dock space, the Dock-master suggested one of us jump off and head... More

We had a delicious lunch on a business trip. Marci was our lovely server and very helpful since it was our first time. We had the full tourist experience with our cheeseburger in paradise, dollar bill signing and a healthy serving of Key Lime Pie and well as the Turtles Ice cream cake! Ken the owner was also very sweet... More

She makes sure your well taken care of. The atmosphere is old Florida at it's finest. If you do not own a boat there are tour boats from... More

Description
Cabbage Key is a 100 acre island located five miles off of Pine Island, FL in the Pine Island Sound. The Inn, built in the 1940's by the family of Mary Roberts Rinehart, now houses our famous Restaurant & Dollar Bill Bar and 6 guest rooms. The rooms in the Inn are all different with old Florida charm - they do not have TVs, phones, or refrigerators. We have 8 cottages on the island, ranging from a 1 bedroom/1 bath cottage to 3 bedroom/3 bath waterfront units. All cottages have refrigerators, televisions (no cable) and coffee makers, some units have full kitchens. Our restaurant is open seven days a week and serves breakfast, lunch & dinner. Reservations are accepted for dinner only. Our hours of operation for our restaurant are listed on our website within our "Dining" section, as well as our full menus for each meal. If you want to relax on a beach...we do not have one here. But, Cayo Costa is a close kayak or boat ride away. This is a great retreat to discover "Old Florida", grab a burger for lunch, relax with a book, & watch the boats go by.
