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

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.

This place is very casual and friendly. The fresh fish is out of sight. I had the Grouper for $15.95 and it was fantastic. Grilled with a special rub that is like nothing I ever tasted. The staff, Sarah and Michelle are the best. They cannot do enough for us. We have been here several times in the past two... More

The cafe/restaurant was a great place to eat!! The food was prepared as you ordered. Fresh fish was a hit with my husband! Great wait service and we enjoyed the decor at the place as well.
