Came in with low expectations but really liked this place. Bar on beach was roomy unpretentious but friendly and upbeat. Memorabilia and photos of the old Daytona races on the beach are fun. Only had appetizers. Calamari better than most places. All in all a good cut above the common beach bar.

Had the blackened redfish, delish! The bacon wrapped scallops were out of this world... as were the cheesy crab stuff mushrooms. If a fishy granted me a wishy I would have the scallops every time I visit! LOL

We went here for dinner when there was a live band in the main bar, so sat in the quieter seating area before the bar, so that we could hear each other speak! Bar area looked like fun though. You initially walk through a stack of racing memorabilia - photos on the wall of past racing drivers and images of... More

Great place with a lot of racing history. It's like a racing museum and restaurant all in one. We went for a quick dinner outside on the deck as the weather was nice and we were not disappointed. The service was good and the food was great. I had the Monte Cristo sandwich... very tasty. They have a good selection... More

I have visited here before and the food is amazing. We only stopped in for some cocktails on this trip though. Service is excellent. Ask for Janet she is awesome. Always great food and cold beer.

Had pre-thanksgiving day lunch with family at this cool resturant. It was a bit overcast on Wednesday, but the atmosphere and scenery were good, the weather cooperated and the food - NE chowder, Grilled fish reubens, Shrimp tacos, fried green beans and jalepeno poppers were great! Off course the beer met our needs. The service was impeccable as usual. This... More

Our family has come here to feast for the last 5 years. We are always impressed with service, relaxed atmosphere & great food! This year the entire bill with tip was $180 for 8 of us. Try putting together thanksgiving dinner for less than that with leftovers to boot! It didn't include pie this year, which wasn't a bother since... More

The short version of this review is that this is some of the best food I have found in one of best locations you could ask for. And it is a bargain. But I rarely write short reviews. If the only thing this restaurant had was its spectacular ocean view from a wonderful deck, I would still eat here. If... More

Loved our dinner here. Fabulous clam chowder, excellent shrimp/corn chowder and fish tacos! (maybe the best fish tacos I've ever had). Fabulous atmosphere, on the beach, good music...just a great vibe! I hate to criticize anything about the place because we had a great time, but our server messed up on our meal. My mother ordered the clam chowder for... More
