We stopped here for a quick lunch and wasn't disappointed. The seafood was fresh, greens were fresh, all of it tasted great. It is on Duval Street and a welcomed change from all the fried fish. Be sure to check it out!

Stopped by Caroline's as we walked down Duval Street. Had the burger with blue cheese and it was great. We also had the Macon & Bacon Salad and it was great too. The service was excellent. We will stop by again for sure. Thanks

We stopped in for a dinner after going to Sunset at Mallory Square my husband got the fish sandwich. It was huge but he said there was too much breading and not enough flavor. I got the lettuce wraps as I was looking for a...More

Good place for lunch. Enjoyed a salad that was huge and delicious. Plenty of fans around to keep the humid outside air moving. Our server, Chris, was attentive but not overbearing and food came out timely. Pleasant lunch.

Had the occasion to stop at Caroline's one night when we were very hungry. I had the Cuban sandwich I almost could not finish. Well prepared and worth the value.

Located right on Duval this is a great restaurant to be seen in, and to see others. However, the food leaves something to be desired. In all honesty it's mediocre at best and dumbed down to meet the needs of every tourist. So if you're...More

The food was mediocre. The location on Duval Street is nice but the tables are crammed close together and our table was sticky. The wait staff is friendly however. And the location is convenient if you are on Duval.

Right on Duval St, this is an ideal place for a casual meal and people watching. The hamburger was so big we shared, and I am glad we did. The drinks were tasty and packed quite a punch. A great place to relax and enjoy

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
There are large trees overhead that shed berries and seeds at various times throughout the year. That is what you saw. We do sweep through out the day and night, but this is an outdoor cafe. And yes birds can fly in, and people can feed them a french fry. We agree that they should not do that; but people do not like to be lectured by you or by us when it comes to their personal decisions. We are not the rulers of the sky or of people - nor do we wish to be. In America people get to choose where to eat and birds even get to choose to where to fly. Freedom is great! It sounds like dining outdoors is not for you. We wish you all the best.
