“Will not go back”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2014

We tried this place twice. First time the issue was the inability for the bartender to make a Mai Tai that didn't taste like fruit punch. Next time the kitchen could not manage to steam an oyster. Three twice the oysters went back and came out warm but not cooked. There are way too many great restaurants in that area of Daytona.

“Good Food and Service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2014

We were looking for a place to eat seafood while at the beach. We found this place listed on a brochure that the hotel had given us. Since it is off season we did not have to wait for a table. In fact they were not busy at all. The waiter was very friendly and did a good job of taking care of us. We all had the fried shrimp it was very tasty. It was served hot off the stove and tasted freshly cooked. We started with the chicken nachos which were different in the way that they were prepared. The prices were a little high, especially for off season, but portions were large and we had food to take with us.

“Ok”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2014

Food was good, a little on the pricey side. Was very loud inside, if your looking for a relaxing dinner this is not your place. More of a sports bar feel with the people playing pool and darts. Overall the food was good, service was average, prices were high, and the atmosphere was ok, depending on what you want.
