Alabama Jack's is located in Key Largo—but only about 100 yards past the “Welcome To Key Largo” sign. This is one of those classic, divey South Florida seafood spots. There’s a live band, license plates and dollar bills stapled to the walls, and a waterfront view along a little canal. But unlike most divey Florida seafood spots, the food here is more than just average. This place serves some of the best fried seafood we’ve found in all of South Florida. And the best way to experience all that fried seafood is with the seafood sampler platter, which comes with fried and steamed shrimp, crab cakes, fish fingers, and some of the best conch fritters in town. This place is an essential stop if you’re coming to or from the Keys. But it’s also worth a day trip all on its own.
