Great Ocean front casual dining.

loved sitting on the ocean having great chili and extreme nachos. Portions were gigantic. Service was good. The place is like a museum with memorabilia from the early Daytona races when the race was held on the actual beach. This was the north turn around for the race. A great place to relax, have... read more

If you love racing and seafood, this is the place to go. The staff go above and beyond to make you feel at home. And Lars, the manager will even stop by your table and speak with you like you are family. A+ for me!

We had lunch on Tuesday arriving around 1:30PM. The staff was gracious and quick to please. We were seated on the Deck right on the beach under a large umbrella. Great view! Indoor seating is also available quite nice with equally enticing views. I ordered the "Fish of the Day", Flounder, and it was excellent. Portions and pricings are honest.... More

Stopped to meet friends at North Turn - beautiful location on the ocean !! Great patio and great bar area. The food was average at best - was pretty disappointed and the service also nothing to get excited about. A place like this could and should be top notch with food and service. The live music was really good.

My husband and I were in Daytona Beach for a short vacation and stopped in this little bar/restaurant.Much to our surprise we found it to be a very pleasurable place to spend an afternoon. Food was excellent (crab dip) and the staff was extremely friendly. If your into racing or Nascar at all fantastic memorabilia.

Stopped here after a hockey tournament and the kids loved running around on the beach while they were waiting for their food. Adults enjoyed being able to socialize on the expansive porch. Food was good. Bacon wrapped scallops and key lime tart were my choices.

I have road by this place many times. Looks like a small sports bar. Some friends and I stopped in and couldn't believe how big it is and how your are right on the beach. One of the best places we have stopped in a long time. Lots of old racing pictures and items which I like. Very friendly stall.... More
