I absolutely love the pan seared scallops with yummy mashed potatoes and love love love the bacon cabbage hash! Friendly positive atmosphere with the perfect view. Every time we travel to Florida we stop by...even after being in Key West for a week...still gotta have the scallops!!

The day we visited Racines, it was too cold to sit outside on their outdoor patio but we will definitely be back to do just that. We sat inside at the back of the bar area so that we had a few of the ocean and outside deck which was very pleasant. I ordered a bowl of clam chowder and... More

This place was a little bit pricey but you're right on the ocean, so it's worth it. Expect to pay $2 per meal more than other places to have that spectacular view. The food was good, the service was good. Wings were $10 for 10, $17 for 20. But they were big and meaty and the sauce tasty. My wife... More

The food is good and the view is amazing. This was the first time we've been back since the fire and we were not disappointed.

The North Turn had a fire this past summer that had them closed for a while and then cooking food out of a food truck until the kitchen re-opened on New Years Day. The food is as good or better than ever, the staff is very friendly and very helpful, and you won't find a better setting - hard to... More

If you're an avid race fan, you'll want to eat here. There are numerous photos on the walls depicting the history of the area. It is a relatively short walk from the nearby Winter Haven park where we always go for the beach. I've only ever eaten outside, and has a nice view of the ocean. My favorite menu item... More

This is a fun place to visit. Since they had a kitchen fire they had a limited menu but were about to reopen the kitchen. The drinks were good, service very good and view awesome! Since the menu was limited we had Mahi and Shrimp Tacos. I had a Mahi Mahi "sandwich" but asked for a tortilla instead of bun... More
