My friends set this trip up so i didn't do any research beforehand. The island is small and quiet with several cottages scattered about and a 6 room hotel. The restaurant is fantastic with local seafood options and caters to you and the daily lunch visitors arriving by private boat or local ferry service.
We rented 16' skiffs and motored over to a somewhat private island with miles of white sand beach. This is a great spot to relax and go shelling. I highly recommend this place.

Wanted a place away from the race for a few days- loved the rustic old Florida atmosphere. Cabins were very self sufficient. Food was great and staff was best of all.
Everyone truly cared. Paula, Carrie, Rebecca, and Michele in restaurant were tops!
And Morgan at front desk welcomed us with open arms and made checking in EASY!
Kevin taught us how to skiff to Caya Costa- gorgeous!
Bravo to all. WE loved out 3 days with you.
Your buy two- get third night free sold us on this get away!

Stayed here last week of October. Hot afternoon, but cooled off by 7-8 pm. Though there is no fuel and you have to drag yourself all the way to the restaurant to get ice (as a previous captain kvetched!) it is more than worth any alleged inconvenience or hardship. Quiet in the shoulder season, no other transient boats the night we were docked there. Bartender Katie, Server Paula & the Manager were very solicitous of our needs at the restaurant. The food was delicious! Quiet, restful location....well sheltered from a strong NE breeze.

Took a sightseeing tour out of Punta Glorda to Cabbage Key. We had lunch at the restaurant which is a sight to see since it is plastered with dollar bills with messages from patrons. My husband isn't a seafood lover so he had a grilled chicken sandwich that he said was the best he's ever had. I had the beans and rice with blackened mahi mahi, which was excellent. The home made key lime pie is to die for! Our server, Marcie, was great! She had recommended the beans and rice and the pie. She was right about all!

Love this place! We stop in every chance we get for food and drinks. The island is only accessible by water, but there are ferries that will take you there if you don't have a boat. The restaurant serves an awesome, breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Can't wait till we go back.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
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 six guest rooms. The rooms in the Inn are all different with old Florida charm - they do not have TVs, phones, or refrigerators. We have seven 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. 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", relax with a book, fish from our docks & watch the boats go by. ... more   less
