This is our first stop as we enter the keys. A little off the beaten path but a must visit. The food is great, service is excellent even when crowded and the ambience is truly reminiscent of the keys. Place looks like a dive, but looks are deceiving. Try the famous conch fritter, fish of the day or Liam bean... More

First the wait staff was pretty rude. I can tolerate alot but they acted like they would rather not have any customers. We walked in with 10 people and someone said without even looking at us "sit where you want" because there is no table for that amount it left us to find tables to put together ourselves. Location is... More

This is a little roadside restaurant on the water with terrific fresh seafood. They have entertainment and it's a lot of fun.

After reading about AJ's but never hitting Key Largo during their open hours, we finally got to stop this trip and what a great dive bar! We got there on a Wednesday right as they were opening at 11 am and the tables filled up quickly. We had a table on the water and ordered a variety of appetizers. The... More

Another fun stop on the drive down US1! At one point during the week, we wished it was closer as we got great fun service there while other places were not as good as they had once been. I suspect a lot of folks were ready for the end of tourist season but at AJ they still treated us well!... More

It kind of looks like a ship wreck on the side of Card Sound Road, but it is the place we go to every time we are in the area. It isn't haute cuisine but it is good basic food with great atmosphere. It is simply a fun place to stop, have simple but good food, enjoy a beer, people... More

I would recommend the platter you get to try everything and plenty of it. The conch fritters and fried shrimp are scrumptious. For dessert try the chocolate peanut butter pie. Nothing fancy and the service is great.

A must stop if you are driving. A tradition to stop on the way down and on the way home Grouper sandwich was OK. Crabcake sandwich was outstanding !

After hearing so much about this place, we finally made it there last week. The atmosphere is totally "Keys"; laid back, comfortable, with great service and great food. Yes, most of it is fried but OMG is it fabulous. We had the coconut (fried) shrimp. The shrimp were super fresh, coconutty, perfectly cook and best of all NOT greasy. The... More
