Tarks Clam Stand Of Dania (Dania)

Posted on October 6th, 2008 · American Dania Seafood


*****  Tarks Clam Stand Of Dania, 1317 South Federal Highway, Dania, Florida 33004, (954) 925-TARK.

Let's start this review by sending you to Tarks' website This is the consummate/ultimate “hole in the wall” seafood joint…mini-sit down-counter/and a few tables. If you wear anything but tee shirts/shorts you will look real and I do mean real…silly.

Take a look at the menu/prices listed on the website…real reasonable prices and absolutely great food. Although this joint is seafood “oriented”…the chicken wings and steak are also very good.

Like I said before, this is a hole in the wall…so do yourself a favor and don’t plan on showing up with loads of friends…seating is real-sparse.

Tarks has been around since 1966…It has an enormous “local” following, so when you are stuffing your face, speak “Danian.” If you are looking for fancy, this joint ain’t for you.

Tarks is open 7 days a week 11am-10pm except Saturday 11am-11pm.

I highly recommend Tarks… its food-decor-menu-prices-service make it the perfect “seafood” joint.

    Ohh It’s next to Southport Raw bar which is another favorite of mine. Kelly’s is from NE and have great lobster rolls, clam bellies and chowder.

  5. hey jeffeats!! Tarks is great. Us locals don’t want everyone knowing about this spot. Just kidding. Love your reviews.

  6. You ever hear of Garcia’s Seafood Grille in Miami? It’s a dump that has absolutely amazing food. Give it a try.

    Jim loves seafood: Just had a chance to read your post. To answer your question, yes I have heard of Garcia’s but no, I haven’t tried it yet. It is now on my list “to do.”

    first time in Tarks was early seventies.. just a little stand with no air conditioning and no refrigeration just everything laying on ice. . . . but the food was so good. They fixed it up some but its old Florida still and very quaint… the clams are tender and delicious …nice people there as well
