We have been to The Garlic many times, taking advantage of the Early Bird Special (yes, you have to order by 5:30 pm so it's an early supper). The deal has inched up to around $15 but it is all inclusive with salad, bread (with crushed roasted garlic), entree and a drink...house wine, mixed drink, beer, or soft drink. My... More

This is a fun place..lots of talk and laughter. Too bad the food is just so so. It's not like it's and inexpensive place! Sorry I can't give it a better rating.

My wife loves the beach and The Garlic is close by so this choice was a win/win. An early dinner before the weekend rush offers quiet casual dining in their open shaded garden area which is a great way to enjoy Florida's uniqueness. The food portions are more than ample and the quality is satisfying. We both had to ask... More

We never miss dining at The Garlic every time we're in the Daytona area! Food is great! Atmosphere is deliciously quirky! Singer and music are phenomenal! This restaurant is always packed so phone ahead for a reservation. LOVE THIS PLACE!

I was concerned when I sat down to a half set table (no forks) with used dirty silverware. As long as we're on criticisms, it was a monday and there were some empty tables and our waiter was often no where to be found. My wife ordered fish, a chef specialty, and it gave her a tummy ache. Ok, that's... More

The crowds of people waiting to eat at this restaurant speaks for itself. The restaurant has delicious food and the atmosphere is amazing. A lot of the restaurant is outside but throughout the decor is amazing. Nothing negative to say and will go again!

We just stumbled on this place on a Saturday night on vacation and were pleasantly surprised. It was packed, but they got us a table in about 25 minutes. Our waitress was very attentive and checked on us constantly throughout our meal... which, by the way was outstanding. My husband is always on a quest for the best Cesar salad... More

We didn't even stay to eat. The staff was not courteous, acted like they couldn't be bothered to wait on us if we only wanted drinks and appetizers. The bar was full and we were told we couldn't sit at a table and just have drinks and appetizers. It was 4:30 in the afternoon on a Tuesday and the place... More

I have to say WOW...............! Everything was just perfect, food was unbelievable, our server was so good, I wish I remembered his name, but if you go there his the the bald guy, he's really good server, we were there for 4 hours and he was really patient. I'm in Orlando but I would do the drive again.
