Beachfront location in Ponce Inlet. Historic location for NASCAR fans. Outstanding crab dip and fish Reuben. We usually have to share the sandwich!

This is a landmark in the Ponce Inlet community. The interior has booths and tables that are nothing fancy in an atmosphere that is a bit dark and gloomy. The place is packed with an odd assortment of racing mementos, photos, etc. Out the back is a huge deck that is right on the beach with a full view of... More

Not a lot of to say. Mostly a bar and the best seats had music so loud that you couldnt talk. We saw a lot of families like us, trying to eat and have a moment but it was so loud. They did move us inside which was quieter, but then no more beach view. Food was just ok.

We've been visiting the Daytona Beach Shores area once or twice a year (time share) for 15 years now, and have driven by the Racing's North Turn restaurant literally dozens of times. This last trip (April 2014) we finally decided to give it a try. While it doesn't look like much from the street, the inside dining (with a bar... More

We had to wait a short while for a table for our party of five but it was worth it. The food was good, and the service was even better. You can sit outside, outside but covered, or inside. There are a couple of handicapped parking spaces near the front entrance...I was lucky, someone was leaving as I arrived. PLEASE... More

I love the racing theme. The view is great. You get a great view of the ocean from your table. The food is a different story. The food is editable, but it's mostly average. I had the crab legs and they were great. However, if I come to a place on the beach, I'm looking for a good selection of... More

My mom and sister love this place. It'ts right on the beach with a large patio that has a roof over half of it. They have live music very often that give the place a more festive feel. They seem to be busy all the time so you can expect the service to be a bit slower. I have had... More
