Cabbage Key Inn sits on an island off the Southwest Florida coast that’s accessible only by boat or seaplane. The property offers rooms in its circa-1930s inn building as well as several charming cottages that are ideal for families. It’s about getting away from it all when you come to Cabbage Key. Cottages, for example, have basic TVs but no cable or satellite service. Wi-Fi is available at the inn’s restaurant, which serves up a cheeseburger that is rumored to be the inspiration for Jimmy Buffett’s “Cheeseburger in Paradise.” Days here are spent reading, relaxing, exploring the island’s nature trails, and enjoying sunsets from atop a 1930s-era water tower.

We enjoyed a fabulous lunch, our waiter Andrew was great, he took great pride in giving us that individual attention that made the lunch even more special
The food was great and we enjoyed the hospitality from the dock master to the owner (Rob) stopping by to make sure we were being taking care of. We so love the folks at Cabbage Key and look forward to our next visit.

I do a lot of lunch cruises and dolphin tours and Cabbage Key is my number one destination. The food is fantastic, staff are very friendly and the view from the island is amazing! My customers can't wait for their next visit to Cabbage Key.
Amazing place. ❤
