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

Loved sitting outside watching people on the beach while enjoying good food. Every age group was there. Much bigger than it appears on the outside. Parking was tight.
