“Great food & service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2014

I loved the old Florida charm!! And my food was so yummy. Will be back again. My husband had a conch melt and I had the grilled chicken sandwich, both were excellent. My side order of french fries came out piping hot and oh so good. For dessert we had the famous key lime pie, which was very good, but I kind of wished it was a little more tart.

“Yummy!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2014

We ate at the Cracked Conch on our way back from vacation in Key West. The food was fabulous (I had the Conch Benedict and my husband had the fried shrimp) the prices were reasonable and the service was great. It's not fancy by any means but honestly I don't go to the Keys for fancy. We will definitely be back the next time we're down that way!

“Just What We Needed”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2014

After spending the day at the beach, we wanted some seafood at a casual place. The Cracked Conch fit the bill. The waitress was great and very patient with our large party. I got the fried seafood plate. The conch, scallops and shrimp were really good. My fish (I am not sure what kind it was) was a little overdone. My son ordered the yellow fin tuna and loved it! My sister got the Key Lime pie and said that it was to die for! This is great casual dining with a bar and laid back atmosphere.

“Generous portions”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2014

I had one of the best omelettes that I have ever tasted and it came with fried potato and toast and jam. The key lime pie was also delicious. Our server was very good and the price was reasonable.
