Went there 3 times in 3 days. Great location, great bartenders, and great food. Worth every penny. The marina that it is hooked in with is a great place to rent a boat or go out with a fishing captain. This is totally Key West.

We stopped here while walking around Duval St. the critters are great. They are made fresh so you will have to wait a few minutes but the wait is well worth it!

A small shack on the sidewalk that dishes out great seafood as well as cold drinks to wash everything down. As you might expect, the Conch Fritters are great!

Best Lobster roll on the island. By the recommendation of a local we went here for a quick snack. The food and service was excellent. There was also a nice quiet place behind the shack to eat.

Our Lobster Rolls are traditional New England style, which means the lobster is cold and it is placed in a warm butter toasted top split bun.

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.
