Waitress insisted she needed ID. Seriously? Me and my gray haired husband so obliviously in our 40s need ID? I had left my purse in the car so I wouldn't have to lug it around. We left. No apology was offered. Never again.

We sat at Mai Tai and watched a concert at the band shell. Drinks were unique. Great selection of not only Martini's but lots of unique drinks at reasonable prices.

We really enjoyed sitting at Mai Tai right on the boardwalk, people and ocean watching. Happy hour had a nice selection of drinks and appetizers. The coconut shrimp was good and we really enjoyed the calamari that was different with its inclusion of different types of peppers. We went twice!

This is a fun place to hang out and people watch on Daytona Beach. Great very comfortable outdoor seating it is set up like an outdoor patio. Lots of fun drinks and a happy hour that starts at 9:00 pm and includes some fun yet different martins. If the weather is bad or your not an outdoors person there is... More

Excellent spot right on the boardwalk with ocean view. Very good drinks for only $4 each. Good appetizers as well. But very poor service. We went there couple times. Got issues with the servers and also heard a lot of other complaints from other guest. Some of them just walked out. Seems like the staff are completely lack of training... More

This is on the ground floor of a little food court, near the Bandshell and water front. We sat outside and had appetizers and drinks. There were umbrellas and tiki torches. It was a lovely place to hangout at twilight.
