“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.

“Good Conch Sandwich”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2014

I love conch and this did not disappoint. I heard the cook pounding it out in the kitchen and could not wait for it to arrive at the table. The sandwich was plenty big and conch well seasoned and tenderized. I would go back again.

“A locals' dive”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2014

I had ordered a conch basket that was too greasy to eat, so sent it back. They were gracious about getting me a more suitable meal, a grilled snapper sandwich, which was good. This is not a fancy seafood place, and not particularly clean. Why are there crumbs and papers on the floor when we were the only customers in there? But service was pleasant and attentive and the second round of food was good.
