If you don't make Racing's North Turn one of your stops during your trip to Daytona Beach, then you miss out on the best kept secret in the area. The ownership and wait staff is friendly and always attentive, the food is fabulous and the drinks are always cold and thirst quenching. The lobster ravioli is top notch and if... More

My husband and I have taken many of our visitors to the North Turn Restaurant. Everyone has enjoyed it for many reasons. If you are a racing enthusiast, love the ocean, love to have a choice of inside or outside dining, enjoy live bands, like seafood then this is the place for you. Until recently, we would decide on salads,... More

Just an FYI... This restaurant burned on July 12. We came over to have lunch here with friends and saw that the entrance was blocked. The owner was there and told us that the refrigerator in the kitchen exploded, causing the fire. She says they hope to be back in operation in a couple of months. We wish this place... More

Wife and I decided spontaneously to drive over to the beach after work today (Friday, July 11). We got to the restaurant about 6pm, and got in easily. NOTE that the main parking is on the opposite side of the road from the restaurant. Not much traffic, and it's a narrow road, so crossing is easy. Once inside, you'll notice... More

I am a pretty frequent customer to racings north turn. I usually dine here everytime im in Ponce Inlet and thoroughly enjoy myself. My last visit was just like my previous experiences and I enjoyed my dining. The one thing I didnt enjoy as much was watching the male manager be some what rude to a nearby customer, and regularly...

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
