Dining with the waves just feet away

We have been to Daniels by the Sea several times now and although some of the servers have been less than stellar... The food has always been fresh and well cooked, the menu has a very nice selection and the atmosphere can't be beat.

Daniel's By The Sea is a really nice place to have a leisurely meal. We were a group of 8 and the service and food were very good. We enjoyed breakfast and lunch as well at Busby's during the day.

Daniels has wonderful fresh food. The owner Daniel is out on the floor overseeing the restaurant.he is checking to make sure his customers are happy with food and setting.

We dined at Daniel's for dinner our first night there. It was a little confusing as the place changes names from lunch to dinner but once we found it we were glad we did! Dinner was good and we appreciated the half portion options. Beautiful location, nice breezes and gorgeous moonlight evening made for a great overall experience!

Daniels offers a varied menu, good food, pleasant efficient waitstaff. Very much enjoyed our meal. Chicken piccata, linguine with diced tomatoes, garlic oil and great grated cheese. (Garlic bread delish! ) V Too full for desert but the cappachin I was great!

This place offers great views, a beach atmosphere and good food and drinks at a reasonable price. My wife had a grilled grouper filet that was perfect and less than $20 including beans and rice as well as a great potato salad. Definitely a good place to kick back with some good food, great views and a good margarita. We... More

We do the trifecta here, breakfast, lunch and dinner. The food is great and the staff friendly and helpful. Take the time to sit and watch the ocean. Cash only for breakfast and lunch, but at night credit cards welcome. Meet Daniel himself. It's great to see an owner that has an interest in you and your meal.

Had grilled Snook for the first time and it was delicious. Ate here many times during our stay and it was consistently very good.
