When a dining establishment is featured on a Food Network Show (Guy Fieri's "Diners Drive-Ins & Dives"), you know that it is definitely in your best interest to pay a visit to it. We've learned over the past years that the small places that Guy finds are hidden gems.......and this clam shack definitely is one of them. We would probably... More

At least that's what the gentleman who took our order told us after I asked him how his lobster rolls would compare to those I've eaten on Cape Cod. And he was right! They were chock full of lobster meat on tasty bread. My husband also had the chowder, which was excellent. Add two glasses of red sangria, and you... More

It's not necessary to get the overstuffed lobster roll unless you have a huge appetite. My husband & I could just finish our regular ones. Cole slaw is wonderful. And the local beer they recommend works perfectly.

I loved the place. It was really nice and the food was. ------ The food we'd ordered was quite expensive, but was very delicious.

This was a great find on Key West. Coming from New England I'm always leary of ordering lobster rolls outside our area but this was one of the best I have ever had. Including the Maine diner. Best lobsta roll eva

We had the chance to eat at DJ's on our visit to Key West. The first time we ate there we each had the lobster roll. No shredded lobster meat or additives. Just lobster meat. Perfect. Second time was lobster rolls and conch fritters. The fritters were not what I was expecting. They were moist and light. Most on the... More
