No need to drive out for dinner

Good food! If you want to stay at the resort they have lots of options, and you can take it up to your porch and eat out there!

We were looking for someplace close and comfortable with good food and Discovery Beach Cafe certainly fit the bill. The service was very friendly. One relatively minor, but irksome point is that guests of the resort get a discount by showing their key. A excellent server would have asked if we were guests to encourage us to come back, but...

We dined here on Friday evening. On Fridays, they offer a fish fry. I ordered shrimp($12.95) and my husband ordered the combo of fish/shrimp ($13.95). Each came with 2 sides. The shrimp plate only contained 5 shrimp while the combo platter had 2 pieces of fish and 3 shrimp. When I mentioned the small number of shrimp to the waitress,... More

We have been coming to Cocoa Beach for over twenty years and I have to say...THE BEST FOOD AROUND... We have gone to other restaurants in the area over the years and keep coming back because the food/ price/owners/staff is exceptional. A hidden gem!!! The Carlson family

They have the best food and the best bartenders there. Lisa is the greatest. Anything and everything that is cooked there is great. You can not beat the prices anywhere else either. So go see Lisa and let her take care of you.

This is a strange place. It is inside of a timeshare building. When you walk into the restaurant to the left is a rusty fridge case with lunch meat in it. To the right are the collection of indoor tables in dim lighting with mismatched vinyl tablecloths. Outdoors is a collection of more tables with awkward vinyl tablecloths. The outdoor... More

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
