One of those must go to restaurants. Humongous servings and very good. Not the kind of food we normally eat, but a fun deep fried splurge on those rare occasions. Great setting on the water. Fish and birds just hanging out, waiting to be fed. Order the conch fritters, park your guilt at the entrance and enjoy.

If you are looking for fine dinning with white lines then go elsewhere. This is a rundown shack which screams Florida Keys. The service is friendly and prompt, the drinks are cold and seafood is fresh and delicious. You can't go wrong at Alabama Jacks.

We stopped here for lunch or our way to the Keys and it lived up to our expectations. As others have said its basically a shack with an outdoor dining area overlooking the water. The majority of the food is fried so if you don't like fried food then drive on by. We shared the seafood combo and a couple... More

We have eaten here many times and always had good food and service BUT, not this time. The waitress took our order, got our drinks and she never came back to see if the food was OK or if we wanted more drinks. The crab cakes had way too much filler in them, quite mushy. My friend would have consumed... More

We went with friends who saw us off on our drive back north to Sebastian, FL on the Sat. after Thanksgiving. This route is a way around the more-trafficked US 1 route in Key Largo, and I will admit there were virtually no cars around, at least until you got to this place. There were almost as many bikes as... More

I have been enjoying Alabama Jacks for 2 decades and have gone there as a tourist destination at least 4 times a year with out of state visitors so I hope the owner reads this and takes my suggestions and criticism because I am a true fan (but not for much longer)! This place is crashing fast and I don't... More

Every year, on our way to Key West, we get stuck on US1 behind some idiot in a van doing 40 miles an hour. Every year, we tell ourselves: "we should try Card Sound Road". Well, this year we did! And we found Alabama Jacks. It really is an odd location but I guess if we were fishermen we wouldn't... More

This came recommended, therefor we had to try it. Glad we did but certainly wouldn't rush back! Food just average, almost everything fried, service good, atmosphere uneasy. Washrooms disgusting - that says a lot about a place! Lighting very poor and too dark to get safely to car!
