Walked in on Sunday evening late. Didn't know the band was going to play one more song. Ordered a bucket of beer. The band proceeded to shut down and then everyone left and we were the only ones there with the fire pit burning to finish our beer! Some one should have said something! The service has always sucked. Sorry!

We discovered First Turn (sometimes referred to as the Original first Turn) a few weeks ago when we went to join some musician friends doing an open mic on a Thursday evening. We had so much fun, we have been back every week. The open mic we attend on a Thursday is hosted by our buddy Michael Stilwell and he... More

The First Turn is becoming a destination for the several motorcycle events in the area. Great outdoor tiki style bar and the best entertainment. fire pit,cold beer oysters and seafood along with steaks .definitely a must stop while in town.

This place is great for a nice casual meal. First Turn is decorated Daytona Race Track style - bumper and hoods of race cars and other race themed things on the ceilings and walls. Wait staff is friendly and food is tasty. When you ask for rare it is like black and blue. I overheard our waitress telling another table... More

We didn't realize that they had indoor seating next door. We had dinner out on the deck. I can see where this place would be an awesome place to hang out and have a few drinks with friends on the weekend. We had a sizzling steak and the prime rib sandwich and both were great. Our waitress was awesome... I'd... More

Every race fan, motorcycle rider or gear head needs good food to keep their engine running. The Original First Turn Steakhouse and Sports Lounge delivers. Not only great food the friendly help and atmosphere has been delevoped over thirty years of Speedweek and Bike Week history by the Hilliard's. Rick, Denise and Ricky Jr. have indoor and outdoor food and... More

I think this place is supposed to be more about atmosphere than anything. It's older and not in perfect shape or perfectly clean.(ironically the bathroom was SPOTLESS) Looks like a biker type bar but I didn't feel uncomfortable going there. The food wasn't bad and was closer to what you might grill at home. I Had the sizzlin ribeye. They... More

Stopped by here on a whim for lunch. It was mid week but the place was packed with happy people. I ordered the Redneck salad. It was absolutely huge and tasted great. This place is a pleasant surprise. Highly recommend.
