Served in baskets with paper liners. Our first round of drinks were watered down. We sent them right back and got the real deal. We think they may take... More

We just visited Daytona for the day and are huge Nascar fans... Had to check out North Turn as we were curious... Loved all the old pictures! Great place to enjoy the beach as well! Great outdoor seating area! Will visit again when we make it back that way!

The history and character of this restaurant just engulfs you when you step in the door. A fantastic one-of-a-kind place with great food, staff, and entertainment! We will definitely frequent it again when we return to the area! It was the topping off of a great day at the racetrack, then dining at the location where it all started way... More

You can eat indoors or out in this very casual restaurant and enjoy the fresh air and ocean view hearing and watching the waves crashing on the shore.
