“Lunch in Paradise”
Review of Cabbage Key

Reviewed 2 weeks ago

We took our boat to Cabbage Key for lunch two weekends ago. While it was very crowded we enjoyed drinks being offered by the outside bar while we waited. We've been going here a long time and two things stood out--the quality of the food has gotten better every year. The burgers are incredible, great size, juicy and cooked to order. The smoked fish spread is fresh and delicious. Finally our server Katie S was as nice and attentive as she could be. Was proud to take our guests who had never been and appreciate this place, which could easily rest on its laurels, continues to get better with age.

My husband and I just had the most delightful weekend on cabbage key! The staff was impeccable! Special shout out to Scott, Mark, Sandra, Brandy, Hugo, and Amy for making our weekend complete. We also had the honor of meeting the owner Mr. Wells who was just the best! Our room was adorable and the food was delicious! This was just what we needed to reset! Cabbage Key is def worth the stop for lunch while boating or an overnight stay. We couldn’t be happier!

This is a perfect place to just get away from the rush of everything, relax, and unwind. Victor, the manager during the day, was very pleasant and efficient. Sandra, our waitress, was knowledgeable about the menu, and her recommendations were perfect. All in all, exactly what we needed. Highly advise for anyone who wants to just get away from it all. We’re coming back for our anniversary next year.

Cheeseburger in Paradise. On Cabbage key, you pull up by boat and enjoy one of the best greasy cheeseburgers with a tropical view. Save a dollar to hang inside.

My husband and I just returned from an amazing 4 days/3 nights on Cabbage Key. Thanks to Ted for wonderful guidance when making reservations to stay in the Rinehart Cottage. Ted actually met us as we got off the boat and assisted us with our luggage. The cottage was charming and clean and we were extremely comfortable during our stay. This cottage had 2-bedrooms, bath and living room with a small area with a fridge and microwave.

Perfect place to relax. We spent our days exploring the trails, playing cards on the lovely screened in porch and feeding our tortoise neighbor a hibiscus flower!!

We enjoyed several meals in the restaurant. Our server for many of them was Ariana who provided outstanding customer servivce. We were celebrating our 3rd wedding anniversary and Ariana's bright energy and attention to detail made our celebration wonderful....topping off our meal with a special anniversary dessert. Compliments to the chef for fun and creative seafood dishes (grouper with tomato shrimp sauce, stone crab adventure and triple tail with a creamy garlic sauce)

Of course we had to leave our $1 on the wall commemorating our exquisite trip. We will definately be back!!!
