We never miss stopping for ice cream when we are visiting BG, and we have been traveling to Boca Grande for 21 years!

My many trips to this area have to include Loose Caboose, which provides a varied lunchtime menu, with very fresh ingredients, and attractive local beers. The waitresses are very good, with lots of information regarding the dishes, and the position in the centre of Boca Grande, means that a couple of hours people watching whilst you enjoy a lovely meal,...

Securing your own table outside is the first warning. Then wait staff "I'll be back in a minute" is consistent, to deliver menus, to take drink orders, to deliver drinks, so on. Our group of four had each chosen a different item, all were good. Lunch service you need to plan at least 90 minutes. And be prepared to wait... More

Boca is a small little town with a amazing beach. This restaurant used to be a train station years ago. Inside and outside seating. I love the BLT. Many choices for sandwiches.

Restaurant in the old town train depot. Great fresh fish and a fun place to watch the world go by at lunchtime

This is a fun stop if you're in Boca Grande for a beach day. There are plenty of shaded seats outside to enjoy the weather. The grouper and shrimp are the winners here. You can't get it any fresher than this. Portions are on the small side for the price. Don't expect to bring home leftovers or split a dish.... More

We enjoyed sitting outside, watching all the golf carts go by, filled with people toting their pets along. The food was very tasty! Service was adequate. The town itself is quaint, charming and a lovely place to visit for the weekend.

Always a favorite of locals and tourists, it will probably be crowded so prepare to wait about 30 minutes for food to be served. Prices are comparably priced, portions are good, taste is good. The shrimp basket had very large, tailless shrimp with excellent French fries. The chicken salad sandwich was large and tasty. The grilled cheese with bacon sandwich... More

The Loose Caboose is a casual place we enjoyed for an outside dinner one night. The waitress we had seemed a bit pre-occupied, businesslike, and not overly attentive. But, once we ordered, drinks were served timely, dinner delivered at a fair pace, and the food was good. Nothing fancy, but a nice spot to have some casual food, and enjoy... More

Dinner is served every night except Wednesdays from 6 to 9 pm
