8 of us here in Daytona Beach for a Star Trek / Klingon Feast weekend. I and another had the Mahi-Mahi with Mango sauce..we both liked it. Other choices were wings, pasta, sandwiches.. everyone cleaned their plates. All good choices here. Relaxed and casual atmosphere. Efficient and friendly service.

If crab legs and shrimp is what you want then head to Charlie Horse. Shrimp are large and done exceptional. Tables are close together but the service and food were good. Salad was fresh and drinks refreshing. Most likely will go back this week

This is our second time eating here since we were in town again. Ended up eating at the bar since it was crowded. Unfortunately, it was near where the waitstaff congregates and there all kinds of personal conversations including sharing of ultrasound pictures etc, irregardless of customers sitting in the vicinity. That was a turnoff. Food was ok but nothing... More

Don't believe the picture that says All U CAN EAT SNOW CRAB $25.99. Must be old. We were visiting Daytona Beach and the locals were talking about Charlie Horse and the Snow Crab. So we decided to give it a try. However when we arrived we found out the price was $42 for all you can eat per person or... More

We were seated immediately, our Hot crab with sides (garlic red potatoes, yes!) and REAL melted butter were in front of us quickly. By the... More

Excellent crab.... Get the all you can eat... Just do it. Hot, fresh, amazing taste. The best you will ever have. Forget the sides. Shrimp porboy was ok... Nothing to write home about. Coleslaw good. Get the crab...

You cannot go wrong with this place. From chicken wings to boiled shrimp to all you can eat crab legs!! Great food and fun atmosphere. There fried and boiled shrimp are always fresh. No frozen shrimp here!! Even there hamburger's are delicious. We have been many times on our visits to Daytona Beach. One of our all time best places!!

We went twice the last time we were in town four years ago so made sure we went again this time. Do not miss a trip is all I can say. We got the crab leg dinner and it was out of this world. The waiter checked on us often and made sure we were not lacking on anything.

Thank Maureen U
