When walking along Duval Street, if you notice this little place, stop and have some of their conch fritters. Excellent! You will not be disappointed. They take only cash.

The Conch Shack is a quaint walk-up with a few bar stools where you can get some fresh Conch (8 minutes to prepare) and chat with the owner while you're waiting (if you like Baseball, ask him about his Baseball Jersey Collection!). Price is very fair and the quality it excellent. Even if you only try the $4.50 sampler, make... More

We stopped here 3 times during our stay. The Conch fritters were excellent, the staff was friendly, the location is right on Duval near Hogsbreath Saloon. The food and drinks were affordable.

Great conch fritters and ceviche. Sampler platter was plenty to split for two. The key lime dip great with any of the seafood. Mahi and shrimp were fresh tasting as well. They also have great frozen mohito's

The Conch Fritters are fantastic, not greasy and the key lime sauce is amazing. The service is excellent and food cooked to perfection. Not rushed, just great food. Try the Conch Ceviche which is absolutely out of this world. Don't be put off by the fact it looks like a good stall, this is the real deal. You have to... More

Tried some different varieties of conch fritters and these were my favourites. Crunchy with side sauces that are really tasty. The place itself is literally a shack, and it's not fancy, but it's worth a visit.

The conch shack was voted #1 in Key West fro conch fritters and boy were they right. My wife and I split a 6 piece and had both dips which were a spicy dip and a key lime dip. The temperature of the fritters were HOT and we had to wait for them to cool a bit but that gave... More

From the outside it does look just like a shack but the food is superb! I had the conch trio and it was fantastic. Dave was a great guy to talk to and gave us tips of where to go. You can perch on the stalls & watch the world go by while munching on delicious food. Perfect spot.

Thank Georgie1512

When you visit The Conch Shack, you're in for a true Key West experience. Located on the 100-block of the world-famous Duval Street, pull up a stool street side and grab a bite and watch the scenery walk by. You never quite know what you are going to see any given day. Experience our "Best Ever" Conch Fritters, island renown flat-top burgers, hand-cut Island Fries, and a Maine Lobster Roll that would make New Englanders proud.
