From NY, often visit New England and this is by far the best lobster roll I've ever had. The conch fritters are very good as well.

We were headed out for a few drinks so we decided to stop to get something quick to eat. I had the conch fritters and he had the mahi bites. Both were fantastic! FYI place is cash only.

We got to the Key West to celebrate my wife's birthday and she selected the Conch Shack for dinner after walking past a ton of restaurants along Duval Street. This was not what I had in mind, but it was her call. HOMERUN!!! The food was very good and lived up to it's billing. Dave was a pleasure to talk... More

We just wanted a quick burger on our last day in Key West so we stopped by the Conch Shack. The burger and fries were good. We just stood at an outside bar top and ate our quick lunch. Try it if you want a quick meal without having to sit down and do the whole ordering and waiting deal.

We came here for the conch salad. If you want legit conch salad, go to Johnson's Grocery. Yes really. We split a combo and a daiquiri. The raspberry daiquiri was good. The conch ceviche was decent but not what we thought it would be. The Christmas much fritters were good but I would have preferred more conch. But the fried... More

We ordered the Conch Trio - cracked conch, conch fritters and ceviche (comes with fries, but no drink). For $16 USD, it was good. There was quite a bit of breading for the cracked conch, but it was still flavourful. I enjoyed the fritters the most, but they don't beat Alabama Jack's. The ceviche was a teeny serving (so set...

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.
