JC's is one of the best-kept secrets in Southeast Volusia. This restaurant features seafood and prime-rib dinners, usually at about $5 less than all the other restaurants in the area. It also is the only one I know of that sells broiled split rock shrimp, a delicacy that taste likes langostino! Their rock shrimps are big, too! You can get... More

I had the prime rib cooked to perfection and my guy had the seafood platter. The food was GREAT! This family owned and run place is worth the trip south of Daytona. The senior special runs 4-6pm. Those prices can't be beat. We had a Groupon for $25 and had a hard time spending it 😊

Riptides is located on US 1 a few miles south of New Smyrna Beach in the city of Edgewater. The unassuming building houses a large dining room and bar area. Parking is plentiful. Booths and tables are available and are spaced comfortably apart. The party of four were greeted by a pleasant server and drinks of ice tea (swee-t) and... More

Looking in from the outside, it brings you back to old time Florida restaurants. Nothing fancy, but the food is consistently good. We started out our latest meal with the house chowder which was good, lots of clams and gator tail without too many potatoes. The house salad is good - fresh and dressed with home made salad dressings. I... More

The service, although very friendly, was insanely too slow. Jenny was pleasant and apologetic when she first approached us. Even though there were only 10 tables occupied and 8 were already eating, once seated, we were left alone for 10 minutes. After politely blaming it on someone else we were ready to move on. The stuffed shrimp and coleslaw were... More

Hands down THE best prime rib, rock shrimp, shrimp scampi, gator tail, salad dressings, and hush puppies I have ever had and I have eaten at restaurants all over Volusia County. I have not had anything that I have not loved on their menu and all visitors I bring are always impressed. It is family owned and has a very... More

I could go on and on about this experience. I read the reviews almost giving it a 90 %. I cannot believe it. The resturant is in very ill repair. From the parking lot to the dirty menus. Extremely dirty floors and ceilings. While we were waiting for our pricey early bird menu we we're serve packaged crackers in a... More
