Old Florida eating at it's best. You can get something as simple as a cheeseburger, or all the way up to live Maine lobster. Great sandwiches, and salads. Excellent seafood served just the way you love it. Great for families, beer and wine available. Outside seating also available under the gazebo. The owner is also an excellent charter boat captain.... More

Best seafood dinner we have had on this vacation. Very friendly wait staff. Door was fast. Onion rings were best I have had in 20 years. Grouper was amazing. Everything seemed fresh. Might go back tomorrow!

My wife had the Captains platter with shrimp and scallops, which she really enjoyed. The other couple had lobster and haddock over rice with fresh green beans. Nice quaint place with... More

My husband and I went here, only because someone told us it was good. We were staying at a RV resort. I am so glad we were told because I'm afraid that it would be passed over. The food was so good, the staff couldn't do more for you. We actually saw "Dan" working the kitchen. This is a place... More

Driving down Route 19 to Crystal River my husband and I decided we would have lunch before visiting Three Sisters Springs. But as we passed the Springs I saw a "closed due to high winds" sign. We decided to stop at Dan's Clam Stand for our lunch. It is a very casual setting in an old building on the side... More

Don't pass this place by. It does not look like much, just a shack, but the food is very good. Once you are inside it is the basic local place. Yes, the locals eat here. Very friendly staff. The owner, Dan, was there the night we were. He is very friendly and funny. I ordered the clam "chowdah" which was... More

Dans is an ok place to eat. Got the shrimp but just didn't have that pop like I like it. Will give them another try. Hamburger are good and good price.
