Whether or not you are into cars, this place sits right on the beach and has decks to eat on or just sit and relax with a drink and watch the ocean. The food is good, the music great and the atmosphere is wonderful.... More

We stayed right next door, so of course we stopped in. Worst mistake of the trip. The crab legs were soft & not hot, the slider appetizer had no seasoning, the French fries were horrible and the onions rings we very basic. I think everything we ordered was previously frozen. Also, there were flies everywhere, which just added to the... More

They offer a wide variety of items on the menu and tasty " beach" drinks. Beer prices are fair and the beer is... More

We visited this establishment with a local friend for appetizers, drinks and to listen to music. The atmosphere was great. Indoor and outdoor seating. Food and drinks were great. We enjoyed listening to the band and catching up with old friends. I will definitely go back when I'm in town again!

The restaurant was recommended to us by a local, because we wanted a good place to eat seafood. So we were very enthusiastic in going there and we liked the idea of having dinner almost at the beach. Not sure why this restaurant is so famous for its food - we had some kind of fish sandwich, which was definitely... More

If you go to Daytona this restaurant is a must. The freshest fish and salads around, and an ocean front view second to none!
