warm, loud, comfortable atmosphere. had to wait 30 minutes for a table, but that's what I call a good sign. if the foods good its worth waiting for. very popular during race/bike week. we did not have the "all you can eat" crab, but preferred a simple fish dish. it was good, definitely not... read more

We were looking for a Seafood Buffet in the Daytona Beach area that featured Crab Legs. We were told to check out Charlie Horse for Crab Legs, we did and they were great!! Will return next visit to Daytona!

Pulled up and noticed there was a wait. We decided to wait the 45 minutes as I wanted to eat the all you can eat crab legs. House salad lettuce was far from green. The coleslaw served with the crab legs was disgusting. I spit it out. The crab legs themselves were great and boiled well. Girlfriend had the honey... More

I've been here a few times in the last year and sometimes the food is good, sometimes its just ok. The fried shrimp is good. The grilled fish sandwich was good one time, horrible the next time. Fries were good one time, soggy the next. Too much inconsistency for the price of the food.

The grilled fish sandwich is one of the best in the area. I would highly recommend it to anyone either living her or visiting.

Food is delicious. We like to go on Tuesdays when their crab legs are the special. The staff is very friendly and attentive. One of our favorite restaurants!

Some friends had told us about Charlie Horse restaurant. We went last week during Bike week. The food was very good! I had Cajun shrimp over rice pilaf and the shrimp were huge and delicious. My husband had a large steak which he really enjoyed. We will definitely return on our next visit to the Daytona area!

We visited Daytona for a winter break and were interested in finding good seafood. And did we find great place. The Charlie Horse restaurant's ads weren't too impressive. And the location was great although the building was understated. Being there during Bike Week sort of made the whole town a bikers bar. Charlie's building isn't I impressive but all the... More

After having Charlie Horse recommended by our motel owners, and reading the generally good reviews, we decided to try this place. And while I won't go into details, we all walked out puzzled at the raves, with the word 'average' being the vote of all 6 of us. We went fairly early on a weeknight evening (about 6 pm) and...

Sorry to hear you weren't impressed with our restaurant. I must say, your review left me a bit confused. We have never served tilapia in any form. We do serve a local fish every day (Mahi-Mahi). I can not imagine why anyone of our staff members would have both misinformed you on what you ordered as well as not offer... More

Went for a late dinner here, the servings are pretty big! I had the buffalo shrimp appetizer and it was delicious! The fried clam strips meal was good, but nothing spectacular. Slower service than other places that I ate at during my trip, but that could be due to it being towards the end of the night.
