This location is supposed to be an iconic stop but I wasn't impressed. The chicken was good but I wasn't impressed with the conch fritters.

You will either hate the ambiance or you will love it. This broken down and permanent parked (twenty-five years) is a thatched roof, tiny, open air,fish shanty with odds and ends serving as furniture. While you may turn up your nose at the dining facilities you will never turn up your nose on the food. This is the best cheap... More

We visited for lunch on the recommendation of our Key Lime Bike tour guide. The line to order was long, however, this indicates a good choice. It was worth the wait. Nothing fancy here. Order at the counter, local Keys beer available, lunch is delivered to your table. Food was delicious and the beer was cold. What more could you... More

Nothing fancy and hard seats, but eat here every time we visit. The fresh grouper sandwich and the cracked conch are at the top of our list currently. Always FRESH and plentiful.

I can't figure out WHY tourist go to the large, overcrowded, run of the mill restaurants in Key West, and then leave questioning why the food and service were such crap. When you travel, you experience, when you travel, you do the different, otherwise stay home. This establishment is grand on so many levels, ever changing fresh menu, unique atmosphere,... More

Friendly and quick service at this very casual spot. Fresh seafood to choose from and hot dogs and burgers, making it kid friendly. The cole slaw is awesome, and so are the onion rings and fries. The Mahi was pretty good, but could have been seasoned better and a bit more moist. The tables and apolstered seats are filthy so... More

Family owned and loved! What a fun location a block or so from the water in the Old Town area. Lots of nostalgia to look at while seated, or take your food to go! The conch fritters were the best we had while in Key West, with a choice of dippings or take both!

Fish sandwich - yum! This was recommended by the trolley driver and was definitely worth the visit. Great lunch, good service. Don't let the fact that it looks like a dive deter you.

Don't judge a book by it's cover, as they say! This does not look like much of a food place but you have to give it a try! It has the best grouper fish sandwich we every ate! Worth the stop.
