Every time I come home I have to come here to get some conch fritters before flying back up north. Moved to Key West when I was 8 weeks old, growing up eating conch fritters you learn they're not all created equal. In my opinion,...More

Good conch is hard to find but this was an accident for us and we were glad we stumbled upon it. Delicious and not pricey!

It was a great spot. Listened to live music from hogs breath while we ate. The mahi sandwich and conch sampler were great. Kid friendly options of hot dog and chicken tenders.

We ate there twice. Had the Lobster roll with fried conch, fritters and ceviche the first time and then went back the next day to split a lobster roll with my wife for lunch. Best one we ever had.

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.

Absolutely loved this place. We went 3 times while we were in Key West. We just loved the Conch Fritters and Cracked Conch. Don't go anywhere else. This place is a literally just a shack but has character and the best conch. The workers are...More

I didn't think I would ever get to have more Conch Salad unless I went back to the Bahamas, but what a nice surprise! The Conch Shack makes amazing Conch Salad, and the fritters looked yummy too, but I was too full. Next time, I'll...More

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.
