On our way back home, we stopped at Dan’s Clam Stand in Crystal River for lunch.  Any time I see whole belly clams on a menu, I have to check it out.  It is a cash only restaurant, but they have an ATM on site.  We started off withe conch fritters and a side salad.

The conch fritters had a bit of spice to them.  They had a good texture and were well seasoned.  Loren went for the blackened grouper, while I had to get the clams.

He said the grouper tasted good, but it was a very thin filet that got lost between the bun and veggies.  The whole belly clams were crunchy and tasted just like home.  It was a big portion and I was full by the time I finished them all.  Overall, the experience was very good.  Total bill with a drink was $42.
