“Best conch fritters.....PERIOD.”
Reviewed June 15, 2010

Whenever we make the drive to Key West from Ft. Lauderdale we stop at Alabama Jacks for a cold beer and an order of conch fritters. Their fritters are REAL FRITTERS made fresh....simply delicious.

“SO glad we stopped. Don’t miss it.”
Reviewed June 11, 2010

We made sure we stopped here having read such good reports. As everyone says, it really is the perfect way to get straight in to the Keys vibe. We ate a hot dog with chilli and fish fingers/goujons with a side of coleslaw. Everything was fantastic, so much so that I tried to see if we could fit in an extra meal just so we could stop again on our way back to Miami. I wasn’t totally clear on the location from the Alabama Jacks website – once you’re on Card Sound Road in the direction of the keys, just keep going and it is on the right just before the toll. Enjoy!

“Good food, good prices and on the water!!”
Reviewed June 1, 2010

Sitting around my brother's pool in West Palm Beach, we all decided to take a road trip and Alabama Jacks was suggested. The drive flew by and we got there with very little traffic. Upon parking, I definitely knew that it was a Florida Keys establishment as it was open (no A/C) and rustic. Inside Alabama Jacks I found the employees to be pleasant, the food to be quite good (best Conch fritters I have eaten), good prices ($15 tops the menu) and a varied group of patrons. It wasn't until we were leaving and I looked through the floorboards that I realized part of the establishment is out over the water (we could see fish underneath)!

I would definitely recommend this as a stop to or from the Keys, and for those with a bit of adventure it is a nice afternoon road trip.

“Alabama Jacks - the real Key”
Reviewed May 30, 2010

Exiting the Keys this afternoon we took Card Sound Road and ended up at Alabama Jacks. Truly a hidden Keys treasure. This is a home grown Florida Cracker joint - no walls, docking for boats, loud (very good) music, people cheering between songs, just a good ole time! Lots of brews, lots of inexpensive home food. Florida conch fritters - you actually KNOW you are in the keys when you make a stop at Alabama Jacks. Enjoy!

“Friendly Old Florida Restaurant”
Reviewed May 26, 2010

On a resent trip down to Key West to see our children and our grand daughter we found Alabama Jacks.
We really liked the place, great crab cakes & the “BEST CONCH FRITTERS” we have had, and we have been to a few islands in our time. “Oh” Good Cold Sodas"!
Very senic layed back restaurant right on the water with outside dining.
We will make this place a must stop on our next trip.
