Amazing seafood

After hearing so much about this place, we finally made it there last week. The atmosphere is totally "Keys"; laid back, comfortable, with great service and great food. Yes, most of it is fried but OMG is it fabulous. We had the coconut (fried) shrimp. The shrimp were super fresh, coconutty... read more

This is a very popular place and I can see why. The food is fantastic, the drinks are cold and the service is outstanding. They had a live band and there were people dancing, very casual place to hang out.

I had the conch fritters which were excellent ( heart attack on a plate though ). This place looks like it would be home for some of the Sons of Anarchy cast - & if I'm not mistaken it appeared in episode 1 of the new Netflix drama Bloodline ( looked v v like it anyway) Tried it on the... More

Food, service and ambiance was phenomenal. I have been going to the Keys for quite sometime and this was the first time I was able to come here and enjoy this. Sat with my legs up on the ledge to catch the last bit of sun on my 7 day vacation... Lunch was absolutely delicious. Beer was cold and quick... More

This up Card Sound Road from Key Largo just past the toll booth that cost $1 each way and you can not use your SunPass, very weird, but anyway, it is worth the drive and the tolls. The place has an old "keys" atmosphere. We sat at the bar, and the service was excellent. (Though we sat at the bar,... More

An out of the way, on Card Sound Road, Keys landmark restaurant and pub. Evolved from a fishing shack operation, this waterside establishment maintains uniqueness and good food despite its popularity. Ever have a Mahi Reuben? Unbelivable! Lunch time entertainment? Relaxing! Friendly service? Unbeatable.

We sat on the terrace overlooking the water and enjoyed a drink and Dolphin sandwich. Good service and pleasant location.

My parents recommended this place to me based on the atmosphere so on our way out of Key Largo we went out of our way to check it out. Atmosphere was the only good part about the restaurant. Nice open air seating on the water, authentic "biker bar" decor, and some good live music. However as soon as we had... More

Alabama Jacks is one of those wonderful places that defines itself by having license plates hanging everywhere. We went on Saturday, and had to wait about 10 minutes for a table. It is open air, on the water. Lots of character! There was a really good live band playing when we were there. People dance. My husband got average conch... More

Fun place to stop on way to Keys or leaving Keys, Always have a great time and good food, sometimes we make it a destination bike ride. The place itself is funky, open air. No matter what I have its always good, sometimes just get a couple of appetizers and cold beer. They usually have live entertainment, you'll never know... More
