Tiny little place to get a quick bite of fried seafood. Pretty good food. A couple of picnic tables in the back - but really this is a walk up place that serves you in paper. They do have a beer selection.

Great little hole in the wall-literally. If you don’t know where it is, you’ll miss it. The seafood sampler is excellent. Very good fish, shrimp, and conch fritters. Everything else looked good too. There limited seating around the corner. Remember, it’s cash only.

Before we went over there we was reading the reviews and some are good some not. After many from Key west told us to go, we did and wasn't disappointed. The conch fritters are nice and crispy from the outside and tasty on the inside....More
