First of all this bar will not be for everyone! If you do not want your food served on disposable plates don't go here. It is very casual and Keysey. When we previously came here we just had the appetisers and thought these were Ok (though I would say the wings are awesome!), this time we had the combo platters.... More

Have heard a lot about Alabama Jack's over the the years so we were anticipating at east good tasting food. This is our first and last visit to an overpriced, thin fried dolphin plate, tasteless crabcakes and wizened fried clams. The Parrot Breeze and Rum Punch were also sparse on the alcohol.

Nothing fancy, but it's nice to sit right beside the water and watch the birds and boats. The food was alright, but nothing to write home about. We had a combo fish platter which offered 3 fish items - conch, fish fingers, and crab cakes. The conch fritter was good, but we couldn't get the crab cake because they were... More

We found this place while out driving, it was so cool we sat out on the deck overlooking the mangroves. You have sit and gaze over the water watching all the fish and boats going by, they also had live music while we were there. The service was very good and the food was good, specially the clam strips and... More

We had a good lunch at this small restaurant that occupies an old roadhouse on a side reroad north of Key Largo. The restaurant had a good selection of food.We enjoyed our meal there

Stopped at Alabama Jacks on way out of the Keys for quick lunch/ drink. A very laid back bar with live music, friendly people and bar menu. Lots of fried foods served on disposable plates but good quick island eats. Conch fritter, coconut shrimp and grilled dolphin sandwich were good. Great place to check out when heading in/out of the... More

My husband and I read about this "dive bar" on a facebook group, Beach Bar Bums. Knowing that we're going to be driving back from Key West to Fort Lauderdale, we wanted to give it a go. So happy we did. It's a little off the main road (10-15min) but worth it. We stopped at 11 on a Monday as... More

This hidden gem/fish shack is an out of the way stop - off the beaten path. It is located well off Route 1 between Key Largo and the Florida mainland. We stopped on the way north from Key West to Orlando. We heard to try the conch salad and the conch fritters. Some friends who travel all over the Caribbean... More

If you are traveling between Miami and the Keys, you need to stop at Alabama Jack's on Card Sound Road in Key Largo. It is what I would call a biker bar where you can also pull your boat right up to! The beer is cold, the seafood is excellent, the staff is friendly and the music is live! We... More

For me and my wife, this was a "need to do once" but the second time was too much. a long drive out of you way to Key West, neat view, very busy and hectic and food only so so.
