What can you say about Alabama Jack's except what a rustic throwback? And a great welcome to the FLA Keys! We stop here every time we travel to Islamorada or Marathon. And sometimes on the way back too. If the fish finger app is snapper you must have it. Crab cakes are awesome. Husband loves the conch salad. Ask the... More

This is our second time visiting Alabama Jacks in seven years and we still love it! Great open air restaurant right on the canal. Food is great. Fresh fish, conch fritters and cold beer! If your doing the Keys you have to do Card Sound Rd and visit this great spot. Locals, bikers and all types of travelers. All there... More

Alabama Jacks came recommended through a friend, we stopped and were pleasantly surprised. My wife and I started with the Conch Fritter and the smoked fish dip, these were both good, but the Fritter was a must for anyone looking for Conch. We enjoyed fish sandwiches with potato salad. The fish was fresh, the beer was cold and potato salad... More

First ate here probably 15 years ago. It's not a place you just happen to pass by; it's a destination and worth going to in my opinion. Had a great outside seat on the outside porch. Best conch fritters ever. Also conch salad and chowder which were mainly conch!!! Not fancy by any means but crowded on an off-season Thursday... More

If your a biker and in Florida this is a must stop, it's a scenic ride to get there and the beers were ice cold. We did not eat so we can't speak to the food. They close at 6:30 because the mosquitos come out !!!

We took the side road because we had heard about Alabama Jacks. We were not disappointed. We had grilled and fried fish sandwiches both fixed perfectly. Flaky fresh. Side of fries generous for 2. Nice way to kick off trip to Keys

Not the best food...more on the greasy side. Glad we experienced it, but most likely will not return.

I was a regular of Alabama Jack's when square grouper supported many a conchs, (native inhabitants of the keys). I still visit at least once a year. This place has not changed. The band plays from 4pm to 9pm. The food is great and cheap. The beer is cold and plentiful. And the conch fritters are the best in the... More

Sundays at Alabama Jacks are a great time! The Country Band is awesome, the food is fantastic and the regulars dance up a storm. What an eclectic mix of people. The spicy Bloody Mary's have Old Bay Seasoning around the rim and go perfectly with the smoked fish spread. The Conch Fritters aren't like any that you've seen before.

for the last 20 years or so, my husband wanted me to stop there but I had a feeling... this time around, I gave in only because my family from Germany wanted to go as well... food suck, no forks cause delivery did not come, toilets the most disgusting I have ever seen, and so many drunk people, we left...
