Local favorite for years for a reason

Yes, the line and the wait can be long - you're on the river with a gorgeous view, so who cares. Enjoy yourself or go to Red Lobster if you want fast food. I'd rather eat at a place popular with the locals and don't mind waiting WHILE THEY ACTUALLY PREPARE A FRESH MEAL FOR ME. Think about it... read more

We read the reviews, so wasn't shocked with the line-up to order food. One of the gals took my drink order while in line & took that back to the table, so that soothed some of the pain. The food was really better than okay & was just what we were looking for after a day on the beach. Nothing... More

So, I wanted seafood but I didn't want sit down fancy. I decided after reading TA reviews to drive on over and take a look. Wasn't prepared for the line. You order, then sit and wait. Let me tell you. After 20 minutes of waiting I finally figured out there was a small bar area. BINGO. I ordered coconut shrimp,... More

Nice spot to sit outside and enjoy the view and good food. We really enjoy coming here when we are in Daytona Beach Shores.

My husband and I have been staying in Daytona Beach for the winters, for about 10 years, this year we discovered DJ's Deck, this place has got to be the best for food and the service is amazing, they go above and beyond for you, especially Chris, seafood sandwiches and hamburgers have to be the biggest I have seen, and...

Location is good, wait staff poor, food mediocre. Good for a quick lunch not much else. Take your friends across the street to JC's downunder.

Reviews read well but almost an hour's queue/line??! Nothing is worth that and the lady taking the order was somewhat off hand when we got there, I cannot imagine what took so long to process people's orders. Appreciate it was a Saturday about 7pm but why not lay on extra staff or at least give people an idea how long... More

Had dinner with the family during a Spring Break trip. We had the grouper sandwich and clam strips, both which were very good. Cole slaw that came with dinner was bland with too much mayo, not good. We also had the fried mushroms and chicken sandwhich, nothing special. The location is great right on the Halifax Rive with lots of... More

This place was just what we were looking for. We wanted to just load the table up with seafood. Clams, spicy peel and eat shrimp, coconut shrimp, scallops, buffalo shrimp and spicy fries. Thoroughly enjoyed sitting out side and we were treated to seeing a manatee. Plus a Lil kitty came to visit. Nothing fancy just good seafood.
