Just had to have one more conch fritter before leaving the island and stopped at this little place. I am so thrilled we did. These fritters are great! It's nice to have a place to sit out of the sun and they provide nice stools...More

This walk up shack is a must! The conch fritters were fresh and tasty as well as the fish and chips. Seating is limited, but the menu choices allow you to walk and eat if necessary.

Cute little "shack" eatery, right in the middle of the action on Duval Street. Lobster rolls and Conch fritters were very good. It is a little pricey but so is everything else in K W. Would still recommend it. Great little spot.

Conch is served in many places in Key West. Some places are better than others. The Conch shack is very good and right in the middle of the action on Duval.

Went there yesterday after reading all the positive reviews. Well it was nothing special or worth going back for. Cracked Conch was flat and way too salty. Fritters were more like hush puppies.

Our Lobster Rolls are traditional New England style, which means the lobster is cold and it is placed in a warm butter toasted top split bun.

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.
