This place is in the middle of the late-night action, and serves up excellent drinks. The prices are premium, the service is super hit-or-miss, and the people-watching is unsurpassed (it's like a zoo, for humans). It was fun, but I wouldn't want to stay all night!

Of course it's am amazing location - right next to the bandshell and so many people walking around it's great for people watching. We chose a seat outside and got lucky to get a great table. We had three different waitresses 'take care' of us. It was like a revolving door. People around us were very confused because one waitress... More

The Mai Tai is located right at the band shell on the boardwalk, so while enjoying your libations, you can watch the amazing diversity of folks that just pass by. We enjoyed the traditional Mai Tai's while munching on their chili wings and firecracker shrimp. (I think that was it's name). The service is unrushed and cordial, and the prices... More

The atmosphere is wonderful but the drinks and meals are overpriced. If you are a younger adult you will like the crowd. Otherwise, try some place else.

Nice place, good service for some drinks. Also have some food options but I did not try any. Nice live music inside. The restroom is weird once you have to go over the next restaurant since they share, but it's clean enough.

We wanted a drink while we waited on our room. It was a nice area out on the back patio. The food was just ok. Typical bar type menu and average taste. Drink selection was nice. Happy hour had great prices. Our service was alright. Overall there's plenty of places in Daytona like this.

We went on a Sunday night during happy hour. I had the Lava Flow drink and it was very good, although once I got more than halfway done it had seemingly gotten too sweet for me. The Mahi Mahi was excellent. Service was great and I loved the feel of the atmosphere. The live band was a great addition too.... More

Went here for an early dinner before work. Primarily an appetizer bar place. The food was all great, the service not that great. It's convenient and nice if you are in the Hilton and a very short few minute walk.
