We go for dinner and sometimes just drop in around two in the afternoon for a half pound of shrimp and beer. The locals are so friendly and they actually have a pretty extensive menu. Have never had a bad meal there .

I was the on the Daytona 500 weekend where the wait was over 2 hours. I do not know if they were just so busy keeping up with the demand or the cook was off. The platter was not terrible but nothing spectacular. The locals...More

Near the lighthouse. Great for lunch or supper (even when it's cool, as they'll lower the oilcloth sides and turn on the space heaters). Great fish. Special 1/2 price shrimp in January. Best shrimp around! Sit riverside and enjoy the view. Quiet,and great for individuals,...More

We came down to Daytona Beach to visit an old friend who himself was visiting some friends. The five of us traveled to this little restaurant overlooking a marina. It was open air and so busy that we waited over 30 minutes to be seated...More

This is one of my “Go-to” places when I have guests from out-of-town. Located within the perimeter of a marina and on the Intracoastal near the mangroves. It’s very casual with picnic tables and a corrugated aluminum roof. My favorite thing on the menu is...More

This place is very out of the way and unassuming, but DANG! The food is incredible. Be prepared to wait to get into here. You're basically in a hodgepodge building connected to some docks, but you feel at home and the food is worth it...More

Yes ! Also Down the Hatch and Inlet Harbor.......but I like Boondocks because it is much easier to dock and get right to the door. The dress "code" is anything that covers you up. Enjoy......tell them Richard sent you.
