Fantastic and fresh food.
Good and fresh food
Brought my kids here for dinner. Everything was fantastic. The Manhattan Conch Chowder is full of chunky veggies and conch. The cracked conch is my favorite. Lightly fried, tender and full of flavor. You can hear them tenderizing shortly after you order. We eat dinner here then usually come back on the morning. Highly recommend it.
Nous nous sommes arrêtés au Cracked Conch Café pour le repas de midi. Le restaurant est situé sur la route des Keys et dispose d’un parking. Ambiance typiquement américaine et sympathique. Ce restaurant propose des plats mexicains, américains et des spécialités des Keys (poisson, conch). Le panier avec poisson frit et frites était bon. Les plats mexicains aussi. Évidemment, ce n’est pas de la haute gastronomie, mais cela convient bien pour une courte halte repas. Service très sympathique.
Excellent as always! Best conch fingers in the Keys! Home made Keylime is awesome too!
La signora che prendeva gli ordini davvero simpatica e cordiale. Conto giusto e piatti gustosi, vi consiglio i pancakes davvero squisiti. Non prendere il caffè invece molto acquoso e insapore invece andate a farvelo da soli alla macchinetta nella parte destra del locale, lì è già molto meno acquoso.
I ordered the conch omelette, with grits & a biscuit. Every bite of this omelette was loaded with big chunks of conch, it was delicious, grits & biscuit were great too!
Excellent customer service, food was good
The food,.atmosphere and service were great.
Found this little slice of paradise on the way to key west. We had the freshly tenderized conch fingers and clams.....Best part was stopping back there on the way back up north.......
My waitress was very nice!! Food was good..
Delicious conch chowder and conch salad
willkommene, urige Rast nach 50 Meilen am Weg zurück
The portions were not to big but food was good, service was very good
First, you gotta like a locals place. It isn't bright and shiny, but locals places in the Keys only survive by keeping customers happy. Most of the customers when I visited seemed to be locals, or at least tourists who have learned to blend. There may have been issues here, but I went here for food and service. It's kind of a nondescript place. I might have missed it had I been driving by at a busier time of day. Inside was similarly nondescript. I wanted a seat to myself so I chose the bar. Funny bar. Looking at the top shelf, it looks like it was stocked by your grandparents. Then I noticed that the real "top shelf" goods were semi-hidden on the bottom shelf. Just an odd observation. The servers are no nonsense and efficient, but they are pretty friendly when treated right. I had already ordered my food when I noticed that the really LOUD air conditioner was not gonna get any quieter. Unfortunately I am the type who tends to live with my mistakes in seating. I should have just moved. Anyway, I got to eat without people bothering me. The conch omelet was exceptional, and the home fries were really good. Toast was toast - nothing burned and nothing under-toasted. So much for the really good. The coffee had an odd taste, kind of like chicory but off. The OJ was a little watery - something you don't normally get in FL. Anyway, as I said, I went for food and service, both of which ranged from very good to excellent if you ignore the beverages.
Great place to stop for food! Staff was super friendly and helpful!
Best key lime pie in the Keys. I get a chill every time I think about it. I definitely wasn’t expecting it!
Staff were freindly will go back. Breakfast was great!
My husband lived in the Bahamas for 7 years and was skeptical when we walked into this restaurant. He perked up when he heard the sound of conch being pounded and no smell of old grease. He ordered the cracked conch platter and absolutely loved it. He also liked the salad and twice-baked potato that accompanied it. I got the red snapper fingers basket with slaw and fries. It was delicious. Not greasy and very fresh. Service was very attentive without being overwhelming. We split a piece of homemade key lime pie, even though we were pretty full. I highly recommend the Cracked Conch and hope we have time to go back.
If living, vacationing or just traveling on U.S. 1, this place is well worth the visit. I last ate dinner there in 2008 when visiting the Keys. This time it was breakfast. I ordered my eggs over-medium, but they were over cooked, but not completely over-hard. The home fries were very good. The wife had ONE pancake after being told how big they were. Kudos to the server for the advice because she could not have eaten two of those puppies. If you are looking for a place that the locals like, this is the place.
