Gorgeous view of the river, birds and dolphins

We go here all the time. You have to get in line to order food then find a table. The views are spectacular. Gets very crowded on weekend nights so go early. Lots of fried seafood options.

I called several seafood establishments nearby to see where I could get a large portion of seafood (a fisherman's platter) that wasn't battered and fried. Most couldn't or wouldn't do it. DJ's Deck can and does. I could get it grilled or blackened. I got the "3-Way Combo blackened". It had a good portion of Mahi Mahi, shrimp, and scallops... More

ALWAYS get the grouper or mahi.....it will not disappoint and is worth the wait. The waitstaff is friendly and effecient, and the place is small but cool. Have a cold beer while you wait. I've never eaten inside so I can't tell you about that, as I always get take out when its hot outside and sit on the dock... More

Fresh seafood with a view! Friendly staff and great seafood and burgers! We were there and boat came in with local fisherman with fresh catch of the day. Kids watched with glee and was a great experience to see the fish being brought right in from the ocean.

There was not much atmosphere as far as a modern building. You walked up to a counter and placed your order for food and drink. They brought it to you at your table. There was not a single wait staff who checked with you. They all did. The night I went there, it was windy and a good chance of... More

This location is located under & next to the last bridge going from Port Orange to the Florida main land, but don't let that scare you away or fool you. We had eaten at another seafood restaurant the night before (Joe's Crab Shack). My wife highly believes the crab legs at D.J.'s are fresher & sweeter than any you can... More

DJ's offers a simple but varied menu of seafood and American classics. There was a little line when placing our order at the window, but the food arrived in a reasonable amount of time. The coconut shrimp were nice. The fried pickles were surprising- breaded and fried dill pickle spears instead of slices, plus a little kick in the breading.... More

This is our "Go To" seafood place coming into Daytona Beach and when leaving town. Ambiance isn't special except for being on the Intercoastel with fishing boats dockside. Great service and excellent boiled spicy shrimp, gumbo, $5.50 pina colada, Mahi wrap, etc. Highly recommend! 🌞

Best fish sandwich in Daytona Beach area! The steamed spiced shrimp is also a winner. Atmosphere is casual outdoor dining under thatch umbrella tables on the river.
