The Conch Shack, Key West, FL.
Space on Duval Street is hard to come by, which might explain why there are only four seats at this street-side seafood counter. No matter, though, because this place is all business when it comes to conch. (You're in the Conch Republic, after all!) Order them cracked, as fritters, or ceviche and you can't go wrong – heck, you can even grab all three varieties in their $16 combo. This place is ideal for anyone looking to establish a nice base before embarking on a Duval Street bar crawl.
