My brother recommended this place to us when we were in KW last year, and we finally got around to it! It's a very busy place, with picnic tables and limited bar seating. Had to try the lobster roll, which was pretty good, and accompanied by a small cup of creamy coleslaw, which was also good. Hubby ordered fries, (cut... More

Saw this place in the tv show "Dinners and Dives" and visit it in our Key West trip. Great food and great service. I fully recommend the Lobster Roll.

Kids friendly. Small nation with funny 80's music playing all along. The overloaded lobster roll was delicious. The guys on the window are friendly and attentive. We went twice, because kids loved it. A bit pricey but worth it. We enjoyed it.

We stopped for lunch and with hesitation, ordered the pork tacos. We should not have hesitated--they were great. So much so that we stopped by later for the lobster roll and the conch fritters. The lobster roll was as good as any up in Maine, but the conch fritters were amazing. The fries were delicious, and all the dipping sauces... More

The guide at the Hemingway House suggested we try DJ's Clam Shack and try their lobster roll. Wow - it was fantastic! The bun was prepared wonderfully and the sandwich was loaded with succulent lobster. We loved it so much my wife and I came back the next day. We added fries, cole slaw and conch fritters to our lunch... More

Great little place on Duval Street. We enjoyed our meal so much the first time that we went back the next day. The lobster rolls are fantastic and only $18! We also had cracked conch, which is as good as it is in the Bahamas. The conch salad (ceviche) is actually better than in the Bahamas! I am very fussy... More

The fish fingers were fabulous... made from mahi mahi.... not your standard fish finger! The lobster roll was also delicious! Would absolutely return if in the area again..... just a little stand on Duvall Street with limited seating behind it, they have a counter in the front with stools that you can sit on and watch the Duvall Street fun!
