A piece of Southern Americana, this gritty swamp bar and fish shack is worthy of reality TV and serves famous fried fare.

Alabama Jack's Restaurant Review

: A detour to Alabama Jack's is a must when heading down to the Keys. Part of the fun is that it's out of the way and can only be accessed by boat or via Card Sound Road, a desolate back route from mainland Florida to Key Largo and the Overseas Highway. Completely open-air, the restaurant is a weathered platform on the water with a view of mangroves and wildlife including mosquitoes. Bikers, fishermen and families flock here on weekends for ice-cold beer, sweet tea and conch fritters as big and crunchy as funnel cakes. Dip the sweet potato fries in homemade, creamy ranch dressing, and try the burgers or fish sandwiches. The only drawback is that the restaurant closes at sunset, so come early, bring bug repellent (or borrow some from the bar), and enjoy this off-the-beaten-path honky tonk.
