Walked by and stopped in for a quick bite while walking around Key West. The Crab Cakes were awesome and filled with a lot of crab. Enough to share. We decided to stop back in a second time, but it was closing time. Will definitely go back.

This is a small walk up place apparently known for their lobster rolls. Our group enjoyed the lobster roll but were more impressed with the Garlic Shrimp roll. Limited menu, but if your looking for a seafood roll a good stop.

The place is really basic but nice. The owner was kind and funny. The food is good and the price are way more competitive in comparison to what is around.

I’m an inexperienced lobster roll eater by every stretch of the imagination, so please take this review with a grain of sea salt. I haven’t spent much time in New England next so I don’t have much to compare to. All I can say is that the Lobster Roll at DJ’s Clam Shack is excellent. The most impressive part is... More

We parked our car close by & this was a great option for lunch, we were lucky to get seats as it was busy possibly on the back of being on some tv food channel show. Lobster roll was beautiful & great cracked conch, bit pricey, but great quality.

They are famous for their lobster rolls. We had one and it was very good. Outdoor seating but nothing to write home about. Your order at the window and get your food there. No other service.

We've been stopping for fried clams, fried oysters and lobster rolls since they opened. We make multiple trips and spend at least 2 months a year there and this is a go to place for us. You won't regret going there!
