Driving down Route 19 to Crystal River my husband and I decided we would have lunch before visiting Three Sisters Springs. But as we passed the Springs I saw a "closed due to high winds" sign. We decided to stop at Dan's Clam Stand for our lunch. It is a very casual setting in an old building on the side... More

Don't pass this place by. It does not look like much, just a shack, but the food is very good. Once you are inside it is the basic local place. Yes, the locals eat here. Very friendly staff. The owner, Dan, was there the night we were. He is very friendly and funny. I ordered the clam "chowdah" which was... More

Clam chowder was to die for. Shrimp were excellent, as were the crab cakes. Service was good, esp considering they were busy. Prices were right. It would be nice to have more grilled options. Other than that, it was great.

Recently had a surgery so not able to go to restaurants just yet. So we called Dan's Clam Stand and placed a take out order for myself and a couple family members. We all had the whitefish lightly breaded and a couple sides. These were just terrific meals. The whitefish was prepared perfectly, flaky and flavorful and the different side... More

I guess we just had a bad day at this place , the food came out cold and the waitress really dident care so she brought it back to the kitchen and our cold fried clams were now served as a pile of greasey way over cooked rubber bands! For $20+ you should get a decent meal but this is... More

I had chowder and it rivaled what I had at Charlie's the night before. Wife had a cheeseburger which was much better than you would expect at a clam bar. Service was quick and good.

We drove past this place many times before stopping. It is a unassuming place that isn't fancy. When you get seated, either inside or outside the magic begins. All the waitresses are down to earth and friendly. It is mostly seafood, however the hamburgers are excellent, the wife usually gets the salad with the blacked chicken. In my opinion it... More
