Miami New Times' Description

Alabama Jacks sets the tone for an ideal trip to the Keys. Essentially a giant blue fishing shed surrounded by Harleys, it looks like a place that would bubble with trouble. Sounds include a scrappy classic rock/country band, the clinking of Key West Lager and Sunset Ale bottles, and the rumbling of idling boat engines. Inside, there's a sheltered wooden patio dotted with white plastic tables, Hawaiian button-downs, sunburns, bandannas, eclectics, eccentrics, and Old Florida flair. And there's good food. Try the famous conch fritters that come as an appetizer or as a meal for $8.25 (with two sides; we suggest potato salad and onion rings). They're buttery, sweet, massive, meaty, and much more magical than any others in the Magic City. Mahi-mahi is always blackened just right, and if you want fried pub grub, check out the chicken fingers, jalapeño poppers, fried clam basket (half-pound for $6.25), oyster basket ($9.50), and buffalo shrimp ($9.50). You'll want to twirl around on the dance floor, so plan on staying for at least an hour. Or two.

    April 25th about half way through our trip, traveling between Elliot Key and Key Largo, we decided to stop for lunch at Alabama Jacks. We anchored our sailboats in a little bay and took a short dinghy ride to the... More >>

    Criminal Alert!!!

    Stay away from this place! When seated the waitress will stall your order giving other employees time to break into your car in their parking lot. There is a band playing so you cannot hear your car alarm go off. They break your window and do massive damage to your car. They continue to steal ALL your belongings. This was at lunch hour on a Sunday in the middle... More >>

    We stopped here on our way out of the Keys. It was a little out of the way but it looked and sounded fun. After arriving we realized that it was all out door sitting but the music was good so we stay that was our first mistake. After we got sat our waitress KATIE came over and gave us a pitcher of water and some plastic cups and made us pour our own water and returned 20 min... More >>

    Come to Alabama Jack’s for their famous conch fritters! Make sure to load on the mosquito repellant before heading to this unique dining experience, resting on a sunken barge in Key Largo.

    Great stop on your way in or out of the florida keys.
