Wonderful Food and high quality service!!!

Best food I have had here in Cocoa Beach!!!! Seriously, the steak was cooked perfectly (high quality piece of meat) and the crab legs were fresh and high caliber. You can definitely taste the difference. Highly recommend this place for dinner. I am staying here and didn't expect it to be so... read more

Out of the way location attached to a resort. The food is always good and the service has always been very good. Prices are a nice change from some of the over priced restaurants in the area. Drinks are priced on the high side but the food prices being lower make up for it.

This restaurant is in a time-share complex. Stopped by for a mid-afternoon lunch. Only one's there. Were serving just the lunch menu, but were very willing to let me choose the grouper fish from the dinner menu in place of the regular fish on the lunch sandwich. Service very good.

We, and several friends, vacation in the Cocoa Beach area each February. We have enjoyed Discovery Beach Café in past years. This year, the service was the worst I have ever encountered at any restaurant any place. There were 3 single people in our group of 7. When asked for separate checks, the server said she didn't like to do... More

Cozy atmosphere inside & nice Tiki bar outside coupled with good food, a full bar and friendly service at very reasonable prices. Very good variety on the menu and very good happy hour prices.We decided to order from the adequate & reasonably price wine list instead of the very reasonable happy hour wine. Even though we are not big fans... More

I have been going to Discovery Beach for several years, through two owners. All food I've had is good, including steaks, ribs, chopped steak, soup, and fish. In general, it is a nice, quiet place to go when I want a good dinner, and don't want to deal with the crowds at some other places I go.

If you're staying near the Pier, this is a hidden gem. Locals have known about it for years and it's actually one place where the locals don't mind mixing with the tourist. This is actually owned and run by a long time fine dining restaurateur. A great place for lunch with really moderate prices. Then there are the drink prices... More

I have been an owner at the discovery beach resort since it was built, so I have seen the cafe change hands over the years in some cases it has gone from bad to worse. We were surprised this year food good great ribs, grouper sandwhich excellent. Service excellent. Trina our waitress really good.
