This is the Best Restaurant on the Beach. You are right on the beach. If you like racing history, you will love this place. Wherever you look you will find racing history. On Saturday nights the entertainment is the best. Oh, and the food is great. I love the fish tacos.

Went in for lunch with my husband. When you first open the door, there is wired moldy smell.. Didn't worry too much for it cause you will go out to eat most of time. They had cool old nascar pics so make sure you see them while you are walking out! View was awesome in outside sitting. Had fish tacos... More

We checked out this restaurant on a Monday night. It wasn't terribly crowded - but we visit the beach this time of year for that reason! But, still a nice crowd. Live music that provided a nice background. Lots of screens with football. The view of the water spectacular! The small museum was really interesting for racing fans. The restaurant... More

Admittedly his was not our first choice to dine for the evening but circumstances led us here. We weren't super excited about the choices on the menu but forged ahead. We weren't disappointed. I ordered the ahi tuna salad off the light menu/starter area expecting something small. I'm grateful that's all I ordered... went home full and very happy (the... More

We had a lovely evening listening to the live music, having cocktails and eating the house special. They have an on site gift shop that we enjoyed visiting as well - so glad we visited them during our week in the Daytona area!

Beautiful oceanfront outdoor or indoor dining. The food was excellent, the drinks were strong and good and they had a live entertainment which was wonderful and very interactive with the crowd. My favorite place to go when I visit the Daytona area. The gift shop is adorable. They also have excellent memorabilia from back in the day in a mini... More

The North Turn is a nice local place for grabbing a bite to eat for lunch or dinner. Very casual and right on the beach. Lots of historical pictures to see and learn about are everywhere. They have a variety of food selections to choose from at a reasonable price. Full bar, good drinks, and often have musical entertainment. The... More

The walls are lined with vintage photos of racing days gone by and our current racing heroes of today. We offer a full service bar with great views of the ocean and over 25 flat screen televisions with all you favorite sporting events. Each night we have Live music that starts at 6:00 PM.
