Go for the shellfish

I have been to the North Turn a few times recently, while working in the Daytona area. What I like is the no-frills atmosphere, the friendly staff, the good choice of beers on tap and the great seafood. There is a bit of a heritage schtick here, as evidenced by the gift shop.

Great decor with racing memorabilia and a cute gift shop. Views from the patio can't be beat as it sits right on the beach. Food was good - shrimp tacos were very tasty. Servers were very attentive. Only negative and not the restaurant's fault .... the table behind us began applying bug spray on themselves in the middle of the... More

Loved this place - right on the beach in Ponce Inlet. Beautiful views and lots of historical pictures and memorabilia to view. Eat inside or out on their great patio on the beach.

It had been awhile since we had eaten here. What a view, loved the deck, you could see the ocean. We love the food here. I had the Vicki Wood Cheese Steak Wrap....so good. It takes you back in time to see some of the memorabilia that they have displayed of racing legends.

Title says it all. North Turn is our "go-to" Place whenever we have friend or family in town. It is right on the beach and you can watch the eaves from your table while you eat. We typically only go there for lunch but in the evenings there is live music and a very lively and local crowd Food-wise, they... More

They have a tremendous menu with a variety of foods. You can choose to sit indoors or on the deck next to the ocean. The wait staff was friendly and attentive. You should have a flexible schedule if you are going around dinner time because it is first come, first served and it is a popular place.

Food was delicious and service was amazing! The entire staff was very friendly. Food was wonderful; Monte Cristo Sandwich and New England Clam Chowder were yummy! Renovations from last years fire look great. Our new favorite place!!!

For anyone that is a fan of the days where they used to run Nascar races on the beach, this is your place. The restaurant sits in the same exact place the racers would turn to head south on a1a. Thus Racing's North Turn. Inside the restaurant they have all kinds of pictures and other memorabilia. You can eat inside... More

I traveled with several friends to Daytona Beach Florida. We had heard of this restaurant/bar from several locals and decided to give it a try. This is the place where NASCAR actually got started many years ago. If you are into Nascar you will enjoy. The outside patio is awesome. Great food, cold beer, fruity drinks and great entertainment.

A great place to eat, the scallops are to die for but a little pricy. Large bar with live entertainment on a NASCAR historic location. A place to go if for once a one time visit.
