Katsuki Addison: Must try Sizzling Thai Whole Fish and Rawest Black Grouper ! CK Moseley: Devil on Horseback appetizer = amazing.
Carrie Bond: If you're looking for an amazing place to have dinner on the water, with THE best view of the sunset, and some of the nicest staff on the island, go to Show! Vicequeenmaria: Cozy resort on the gulf, close to all the action but in a quiet street.
Jack Flats is a locals' favorite! We enjoyed Jack Flats for the ambiance and the abundance as well as the quality of the food.
My wife and I were looking for a good, inexpensive late dinner on a Saturday night in Rawest. Since I am a huge college football fan and I remembered Jack Flats was rated fairly highly here, we decided to give it a shot.
We ordered the spinach & artichoke dip as an appetizer. I ordered the shrimp & bacon club, which was huge and very tasty.
My wife had the barbecue chicken sandwich and found it be only average. Her main complaint was not much BBQ sauce on the sandwich.
There were plenty of TVs to watch the games, which was great for me. However, the music was very loud and made it hard to carry on a conversation.
All in all, not a bad place for a laid back dinner. And this hotel provides a respite from all the noise and din of Duval.
This place is not for the crazies and “liquored up” folks that may be stumbling past. Good food, great atmosphere, lots of flat screens.
We offer free delivery to Old Town and all our food is prepared to order. Perfect views of Rawest life on Duval Street from our raised, sidewalk café.
Either way, it's the best thing in the Keys, bar none! We ended up eating there every day for our entire 8-day stay! The atmosphere is so typical of Rawest ...situated outdoors as you sit under palm trees and watch everyone walk by on Duval Street... The one think that we appreciated the most, is the consistency of the quality of food every time... The peel and eat shrimp for an appetizer outstanding and fresh.
I make a point of stopping at Caroline's every time I'm in Rawest. Claim your listing for free to respond to reviews, update your profile and much more.

If you desire old school Rawest, fresh fish without a lot of unnecessary frills this is the place to come. Step up to the counter, order, have a seat and wait for the most awesome food you've ever tasted to be delivered to your table.
Went to Rawest last week and had to go by BO's Fish Wagon for this sandwich. We went by there on Tuesday, and they were out of Grouper and were told to come back Thursday.
There are no waiters, no dishes to wash, no hostess and our meal was over $40.00 but I would go back. Stands for Buddy Owen, the owner of this famous Rawest fish restaurant.
'S is a cobbled-together amalgamation of wood, license plates and alcohol. The place looks like it has been hammered together by hand, which gives it quite a bit of quirky charm.
Very, very basic stuff going on here...the tables are a mishmash of styles, the walls are covered with all sorts of stuff and people leave their mark in chalk or pen on the rafters or wherever else they can write. There is never a lack of something to read or look at while you're waiting for your food or eating.
Our fish sandwiches were hearty, fresh and hot and very tasty. It was moist and came on a beautifully soft roll with lettuce, tomato, onion and tartar sauce.
The fries were the “boardwalk style” and were cooked to perfection. You order at a walk-up counter, give your name, find a seat, and they'll bring you out the food.
It ended up costing us $30 for lunch with two fish sandwiches, fries, limeade and a coke. It was a bit of a shocker to the wallet, but the food was tasty enough to compensate.
We also realize that this is a resort area, and prices will be higher for items just because they can be. A local told us that this is the place for fish and chips.
So being from Southern Cal where fish is as plentiful as Rawest, here we walked. So the place looked like one of my backyard forts from 1972... no big deal.
$40 for fish and chips for two people with 4 oz of Grouper in each sandwich is unacceptable. I felt like I was eating a bread sandwich with some fish.
Back home you get 2 1/2 times the fish for that price. !Oh, and one last thing... Never leave a tip in a jar at the counter till you've finished your meal.
Ample portions and very reasonably priced. Service was friendly! Next trip we will definitely stop by again!FYI- Cash Only! Claim your listing for free to respond to reviews, update your profile and much more.
