Boondocks is a casual, fun restaurant with fresh seafood, great salads and soups, and all homemade sauces. We also offer chicken sandwiches and tenders, 1/2 lb. burgers, hotdogs, and other kid-friendly meals. From raw and steamed oysters to spicy steamed shrimp, Zuppa di clams and our amazing garlic bread, mussels marinara and our delicious oysters Rockefeller, we will fill you up and make you smile! Come watch the sunset over the marina and relax. Just another day in paradise!!!

Great seafood off the beaten path.

We were staying in Daytona Beach Shores, and decided to drive down to Boondocks one night for dinner. It is at a marina, a few blocks off the main road. It is exactly the type of place we like. Small, waterfront, very casual, with good seafood. They were practically full when we got there, but... read more

This restaurant was within walking distance of where we were staying. The locaiton along with the good eats, pretty view and fun wait staff made it our once a day stop! The fried shrimp was SO tasty, not too much breading and/or seasoning, combined with a just hot enough cocktail sauce makes it a MUST try. The crabcake special of... More

This place is right down the street from where we were staying during speedweeks and we had never tried it, but it was recommended to us, so we went. It has a very down to earth, local feel to the place. Small establishment with seating outside and at a bar. The dining area consists of picnic tables. We went at... More

Fresh seafood at the marina. Large portions and reasonable prices. This is our favorite seafood restaurant in area, nothing compares. The atmosphere is very relaxed, last time I was there several people were wearing bikinis. Our daughter enjoys feeding the fish, they have a machine where you can buy fish food. If you go for dinner expect a wait, lunch... More

Seafood is fresh and reasonably priced! Service is good and the people are very nice! Located on the intercostal. Even on a chilly January night we were warm inside with the heaters going!

Found this marina restaurant while on vacation in Daytona Beach. Don't be fooled by the appearance, the food and atmosphere are excellent. We ordered the fish sandwich (without the bread) and were served a delicious and generous portion. I also ordered the calm chowder, and it was one of the best I ever ate! There was a long wait for...

Don't expect linen and crystal! Place looks like a converted greenhouse, but man oh man was the food good and our waitress was friendly, informative and recommended great entrees. I had the bacon cheeseburger and it was fantastic! Others had the special and peel and eat shrimp. We had a great time and the food was fantastic. Will return again... More

My third visit to Boondocks was as good if not better than my 2 prior visits. The food, ambience, staff, everything was excellent. This time I brought my parents and they were very impressed as well. They live in The Villages so will become regular customers.
