This is a great place for casual dining. We ate here four times and were only in Marathon a week. I highly recommend the New England Conch Chowder and the fried Scallops. The Scallops were the best I've ever tasted. They literally melt in your...More

Stayed in Marathon before going to Key West. Went to Cracked Conch Café because of Trip Advisor's ratings. Boy were they correct. Potatoes were to die for!! Eggs, sausage, etc. was great and at a very reasonable price. A must place for breakfast.

We had a nice lunch at Conch Cafe. Omelettes were tasty and homemade fries ok. Service was friendly even the waiter had extremely busy time to run between the tables. But she managed very well. Key lime pie was really good.More

The Western Omelet was cooked perfectly and delicious. Portions are generous and reasonably priced. Service was good although food takes awhile to come out of the kitchen. Pork roll is available and was great!
