Who cares what the food tasted like, if you like racing you have to come here. Perfect place for the gear head in all of us. Oh, BTW, my meal was great. Mahi Mahi just the way I like it. Drink specials, live music and only a jumped guard rail away from the original Daytona Beach race track. Race down... More

Vacationing during speed week in Daytona and was recommended to stop by and enjoy a meal. Had the blackened mahi mahi soft tacos with pico salsa. Excellent. No fuss. My husband had the prime rib sandwich with aujus. Again a great choice. Best to park in the lot across from North Turn. North Turn looks small from the roadside but... More

If you like Nascar and Daytona 500 history, this is your place to eat. Plenty of pictures and nostalgia. They even have a couple of race cars from the 50's. The kitchen had a fire in 2014 so they just re-opened few months ago. They did a great job and working hard to replace some of the pictures and artifacts... More

Not a great selections for vegetarians. Ordered ahi tuna. Not great!! But will go back. It was very busy on Sunday. Server was fabulous. They charged $2.60 for coffee at bar. That really was very pricy. . Nice out door seating. .. Very roomy

The food was mediocre at best and way overpriced for what it was. The only thing going for this place is the ocean view. Much better choices to eat nearby.

Great food and cold drinks, right on the beach. You can sit under umbrellas on the deck, or sit inside and enjoy a fun afternoon or evening. Enjoy the live music and good food in this laid back beachside pub. While you are there learn all about the place where the Daytona 500 was born. Yes they raced on and... More

First off it was Racing Weekend at Daytona, so all the racing enthusiast were there checking out the spot where the first Daytona races started...the restaurant is seat yourself and we found on with the ocean in front of us.

Wife and I met friends there for lunch and even though we have been several times, our friends had not. Once you walk in and past the history of racing all around you you have the choice of inside or outside seating. Outside is beside the ocean so what's not to like. They know how to cater to folks and... More

Stopped at Racing's North Turn for lunch while staying at Ponce Inlet for a few days. Ton's of Racing nostalgia all through the place. The view of the ocean and beach was awesome. We couldn't sit outside because of the weather. Everyone's food was good and all were happy. The beer is server in plastic cups but it's so cold... More
