Best Fish Sandwich Ever!!

I didn't expect much when we arrived, but boy was I wrong! Simple little cafe with friendly waitresses and without a doubt the best fish sandwich I have ever eaten. I grew up in CB and this place is tops for good food at a reasonable price!

We didn't have high expectations but were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food and the excellent service. We arrived just after a party of 15+ were being served and thought we'd be in for a long wait. In fact the service was quick and professional. I had the Escargot and that day's special BBQ Ribs; both were excellent!... More

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 good! What a mistake!!!! We will be eating... 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.
