Relative to Key West, Caroline's is reasonably priced, the service and staff were outstanding, and the food was excellent. It has nice ambiance, it is on Duval Street, so you can do some fun people-watching while enjoying the excellent food.

We enjoyed our food and the atmosphere at Caroline's. The menu is mid range and has lots of choices. The dolphin sandwich was excellent. There are pigeons walking around everywhere under the tables. There were several families there with small children so it is a family friendly place. Great location to stop in for a cold beer and get back... More

Good location as it is on Duval street but definitely less action/noise. It's a good spot for kids as most restaurants on or around Duval street are bars and are not kid friendly. Conch fritters were a little oily but overall the food was very good. Nice portions and great kid meals. Staff is also very nice.

We went out looking for dinner that was reasonably priced and ended up trying Carolines. We were really glad we gave it a try. We tried the Jambalaya and the Philly Steak Sandwich. Both were excellent and both were more than we could eat. We could have easily have shared either meal and had plenty to eat. Service was good.... More

Stopped in for a quick bite after we arrived late to our hotel... busy place. Cocktails were extremely strong and very good! The bruschetta was amazing, freshly made! The jambalaya that was coming out of the kitchen was on huge plates and looked incredible! Would def go back

Cuban sandwich was very good and almost enough for two. Mahi sandwich was also excellent. Service was prompt; very attentive. GM walked around asking how everything tasted. Nice touch.
