Description: When you visit The Conch Shack, you're in for a true Key West experience. Located on the 100-block of the world-famous Duval Street, pull up a stool street side and grab a bite and watch the scenery walk by. You never quite know what you are going to see any given day. Experience our "Best Ever" Conch Fritters, island renown flat-top burgers, hand-cut Island Fries, and a Maine Lobster Roll that would make New Englanders proud.

Just an amazingly delicious quick and convenient place to eat. Had to go everyday during my stay at KW. Try the lobster roll and conch fritters, both are incredible!! If you haven't gone yet, you are wasting time.

“Good food for a quick bite on the go!”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

While in Key West we were short on time, so we stopped by to get something quick to eat. I ordered a seafood platter, which came with a little bit of everything (conch fritters, shrimp, fish & fries) it was 13.00, but it came with a lot of food. My husband ordered a Maine lobster roll, it was also 13.00 (the portion was really small & came by itself/no sides). As mentioned before though, my plate was so large we were able to share my food. My mother-in-law & nephew both had cheeseburgers & they both said they were delicious. Very good food if you're short on time & want something quick, however if we have more time next time I'd like to try one of the other restaurants.

“best meal of our mini-moon”
Reviewed March 1, 2013

Soooo good! The conch fritters were scooped fresh and fried right in front of us. Good cheap drinks. Amazing lobster rolls. I have had lobster rolls at "fancy" places that were seriously nothing compared to this one. I wanted to order more to take with me, but thought that would be overboard. Seriously, so good. The bread on them is like a thick texas toast that is toasted on the grill, and the filling is light on the mayo and very lobster-y. So. good.

“Best conch fritters and cracked conch on earth!”
Reviewed February 21, 2013 via mobile

We so enjoyed the conch fritters and the cracked conch with spicy pink sauce. Conch was fresh, tender and delicious. Lightly breaded and perfectly fried. The owner was incredibly friendly. We highly recommend it as it was truly the highlight of our trip to Key West. Don't miss this little gem!
