We visited Dan's Clam Stand on the recommendation of a friend who lives in Florida. We had never tried clams before and Dan brought out fresh live clams for us to see. We then had a selection of clams to try. We are now hooked and look forward to tasting Dan's clams again.

The service and friendliness of the staff was first class. We even discovered that one of the staff was born in England......a small world!!!

We highly recommend this establishment for its ambiance. If you've not been yet, you are missing a treat.

This is a simple place, with good quality food cooked simple. I really enjoyed our dinner there. We had lobster, snow crabs and clams. The clams were different to the ones I've had in the North East, but enjoyable non the less.

I do recommend this place.

In Crystal River for several weeks and been here twice. The clam chowder is the best! Fried shrimp very good also. My husband had the cheeseburger and said it was the best burger he has had in a long long time. Very affordable, staff is so friendly. Will be there one more time before we have to leave.

Amazing clams, wonderful service. Lived in Florida 24 years and miss fresh clams, scallops and lobster every day. NO MORE. This place is bringing Ipswich clams, New Bedford Scallops and Maine lobster to the plate cooked perfectly. I always complain about the overcooking of fish, not here. Its only 2 miles off hwy 19 or 26 miles off I-75. Worth the trip either way. Service by Sean could not have been better.
