We always come here! We love the food and the beautiful ocean views! Nothing fancy but down to earth and satisfying! The service, the food and the beautiful views! I highly recommend it and you can also walk on the beach after your enjoyable meal! We enjoy the fish sandwiches!

Friendly waitstaff and employees accommodated our large group of 12 on the pier. We enjoyed the food and view despite the heat. Gift shop staff person was very nice; parking was easy to find and free. Would definitely go back. Incorporated this stop in our drive along Daytona Beach.

This place HAS to be the inspiration for Sponge Bob Squarepants and the enigmatic "crabby patty"... it's a quirky place built right on the dock, so high tide waters will occasionally splash up through the planking that serves as the floor. The menu is full of local seafood, prices are reasonable and the atmosphere encourages you to walk off the... More

We enjoyed an early morning breakfast on the pier. As the sun was rising over the horizon we ordered breakfast. Sitting out on the open deck and listening/seeing the ocean and waves was very relaxing. The service was friendly and fast. Food was very good and a nice portion. Price was very reasonable. If you're looking for a place for... More

Pretty good food. Good service. It's nice to sit out on the pier over the ocean. Very scenic place to eat. Be careful at night because it gets windy and a bit chilly.

We ate lunch upon arriving in Daytona on our anniversary trip. We were so happy the restaurant withstood the hurricane. Beautiful views! Excellent food, as always. Cold beer! Fun ambiance!

Nice restaurant on a pier at Daytona Beach which makes the atmosphere priceless. One can dine inside or out. I had the blackened white fish which was superb with mashed potatoes and hush puppies. The fish was cooked to perfection and very tasty. The waitress was very attentive and we were immediately seated upon arrival. This restaurant can be a... More

I had bacon wrapped shrimp, wife had jumbo fried shrimp, my dinner was okay(not what I thought), wife thought hers met her expectation, very good. Noise was a factor in the evening, distance to venue was a bit far for me, but, nice.

We ate here 9 years ago while on vacation everyday. So while in Orlando we drove over for lunch. It's an open air restaurant on the pier. You can see the water thru the cracks in floor. Very casual. Menu has seafood, burgers, grilled cheese etc. and reasonable prices. You can also fish from the pier, although most was gone... More

If you love the beach, and casual dining, this is a must visit. It's located on the pier, over the ocean. The sea air flows through the windows and the waves are crashing all around you. It's such a refreshing and relaxing atmosphere. The food is casual fare, and the service is friendly. This was a great idea after a... More

We are a local seafood restaurant located on the famous Sunglow Pier in Daytona Beach. Come sit out on our deck over the ocean and watch the wave roll by, sealife in the water below or even the local surfers enjoying the waves. You wont be disappointed.
