We went for dinner and had some good food, but overall a very mixed experience. The big issue was the noise of the band made conversation very hard even though we got as far away from them as we could. Have to admire their work ethic (they didn't take a break the entire time we were there, although I was... More

We had a great lunch on the deck with a beautiful view of the ocean. We had the New England Clam Chowder, calamari, and the super charged shrimp. Our waitress, Jessica B, told us after we were seated that it would be 45 minutes for food but it was much quicker than that. Everything was excellent and the view was... More

Just that, average. Service was just ok. Food was "plain." Not a lot of taste in their food. Not terrible, just kind of "there.) Good location.

Casual dining on the beach. Food and drinks are delicious. Sometimes has live music. The blackened mahi mahi tacos are amazing

My wife and I have been to the Daytona area many times over the years, and have always driven past RNT going to other places in Ponce Inlet. It just looked small with no parking on the outside. I am glad we read the other reviews on TA, and gave it a shot. The place is large, with lots of... More

If you are stuck for a week in Daytona Beach at a convention, Racing's North Turn is my hidden oasis! I love it. Food is great, way beyond bar food. Drinks are good size and the staff makes you feel like you are at your home bar. The fish tacos are a 10!

Liked the museum and the racing atmosphere. The live band was a nice touch while eating on the beach with a wonderful view. The Ultimate Nachos are very good, but don't ask for extras unless you want to pay. Don't like being nickel & dimed. Mixed drinks are $7.50 plus. Baby, had shrimp tacos which she liked. I had shrimp... More

We had a great lunch here, fantastic food, fantastic drinks, and the kids meals come in a cardboard car. We had to get a second one for the toddler, he didn't want to be left out of the fun.

A very nice list of drinks and meals with great view of the Atlantic Ocean. From the front it looks small but, once inside there is much more than meets the eye. Corine was are server. She was Delightful and friendly. She did not hesitate to assist you with menu selections and drinks. Happy hour daily. Live music daily. Reasonably... More
