Fodor's Expert Review The Loose Caboose

$$$ Gasparilla Island (Boca Grande) American

Revered by many—including Katharine Hepburn in her time—for its homemade ice cream, this is also a good spot for solid, affordable fare. Housed in the town's historic depot, it offers indoor and patio seating in an all-American setting. Expect slow service in season, and paper plates with plastic utensils.
