“Get the "Overstuffed Maine Lobster Roll"”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 17, 2013

We shared an overstuffed lobster roll for lunch and it tasted wonderful! Lots of lobster claw meat - and we really enjoyed it. Remember that this is more a place to walk up place order and then sit either overlooking Duval or in the back patio. You will not be sorry - the clams in butter sauce looked wonderful too. You can also get fish tacos, clam strips and sandwiches. I think it is a great place for lunch. Cold beer available too. You will not be sorry that you ate here.

“Very disapoiting”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 12, 2013

My co-worker and I order food from here to pick up. She was there on time, say hi but had to wait a few minutes to be acknowledge. I order crab cakes, they came with salad and tons of dressing to make the crab cakes soggy and with balsamic taste, witch I particularly dislike. Also
I asked for garlic bread: cuban bread toasted only in the inside with lots of oregano and some garlic. My co-worker ordered shrimp and fries. Both things soggy. We work a block from there. We won't get anything from here again.

“Amazing lobster roll!!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 12, 2013 via mobile

We ate here for lunch and had a lobster roll and the fried conch. Both were great, and the lobster roll had what seemed like a entire lobster on it. It was not cheap, but a great value. If you are on Duval street you have to make your way to this spot.

“Great hole in the wall place!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 9, 2013 via mobile

We walked pass a lot of restaurants to get to DJ's Clam Shack and when we saw it we almost turned around, we were expecting a sit down style restaurant, all they have is small patio section behind the building. We went ahead and ordered and got our food quickly, we had the crab cake sandwich and the conch bites with fries. We sat in their "patio" section and it turned out to be great. The food was awesome and the patio section ended up being a great 15 minute break from the hustle and bustle of Duvall street. I would highly recommend this place for A great priced and quick restaurant on Duvall with local flare.

“Yum!”

Miss the lobster sandwich already! Amazing amount of lobster for the money. I also had their trademark clams. Very good! Reasonble pricing.
