Fun little spot as your walking down Duval st. Great atmosphere and staff. We sat out front and did some people watching while eating.

Lobster roll was amazing.

DJ's Clam Shack on busy Duval St. (try to find parking!!) is average at best. The "order yourself" menu features the usual array of seafood items at top dollar prices. My fried clams were ordinary and a tad overdone After hiking the length of Duval Street, our lunch was far short of expectations-- especially with a bill of $68.

DJ’s Clam Shack, Key West

Stopped at this establishment after one of my dear friends suggested it. After walking around in Key West exploring the rich community, this stop was a welcome change.
The shack is not big, you order at a window and find a place to sit. We ordered one lobster roll (what they are known for), some onions rings and drinks.

We sat down and within minutes our food arrived. The onion rings were freshly fried and hot and the lobster roll was out of this world!!! Tons of lobster chunks, tasty and super fresh on a lightly toasted bun.

The staff was great and super friendly. The place was super fun.

Would we go back?? Yes!!!!

Read about this place and decided to give a try. I am glad that we did! My wife and I split a lobster roll (YUM), and also split the fried clams basket. The lobster roll was great. I only wish I had ordered a whole one for myself. The fried clams basket was good, about what I expected. As typical for local Key West "dives", this place is very small, not air co ditioned, limited menu....but REALLY, you need to try it.
