We like to travel to beach/seaport areas and DJs Clam Shack had the best lobster rolls we have ever tasted. Nice outdoor ambience. Do not expect frills. You will be eating on wooden picnic tables. The staff members were very friendly and efficient. The food was delicious and the piped in music made a great meal even more enjoyable.

Still would definitely recommend... More

This is a perfect stop on Duval for street food. It is always fresh and delicious. It was featured on Diners, Drive-ins and Dives for good reason. You won't find a better fish taco. They are plenty big. Two to an order.

Clam Basket is Excellent! I am not a huge fried food fan, but WOW! These things are packed full of Clams. The seasoning is spot on! My husband and I split a basket of clams and both had a Lobster Roll. Also not a huge fan of Lobster Rolls, but this one is awesome! Full pincher meat in here and... More
