Stopped by for lunch. Really liked the history they displayed. View from the deck is awesome. Right on the beach! Will be back next time we are in the area.

Accessible from the beach and has a deck to enjoy food and drinks. A little pricey, but they have happy hours. Nice atmosphere.

We stopped in for a late lunch - cheeseburger, fried shrimp, and 1 drink $42 - seemed pricey to us, but maybe not to others. The food was good, not great, but tasty. Atmosphere was fun - beach view & tons of racing memorabilia. Would recommend.

Not a fan. Waitress at bar charged for extra drink and rude when we questioned her accounting. Padding bills? Nope...music was great but service at bar...horrible. We are only willing to pay for what we got. Be careful of this place.

Stopped in for dinner because it was one of the few restaurants right on the beach. There were four of us. The New England Clam Chowder was very good. My Cesar Salad tasted fresh but had way too much dressing. I had Shrimp and Grits, they were pretty good, nothing special. Two people in our foursome had the Peime Rib... More

The spot where the old Daytona Beach track merged back to A1A in the early days of auto racing is the site of this restaurant. Great bar and grill type food, which was good, tons of racing history photos and fairly priced.

Service 5+; food 3. Went for 2pm lunch. Place was full. Fish tacos ample portions but uses flour tortillas. Filling but not exciting. Fish in huge fish Ruben a little wet for my taste. I prefer my fish more fully cooked. The fries were perfect--crisp outside soft inside and hot. Service was excellent considering the packed house. Friendly staff offered... More

We came here for dinner while on vacation with our daughter. We had chicken fingers, Mahi tacos, and clam chowder with drinks. The Mahi tacos were very good. The waitress said it was one of their specialties. The sauce was slightly spicey but not too overpowering. There were three large shells and the Mahi was over-flowing. I could only eat... More

Went there for drinks and dinner. The clam chowder was awesome. Also had the fish tacos and they were very good. Ask for a little extra sauce and they are even better. The portions are very good size. The prices are not bad. This place has some incredible pictures from the original Daytona races. I am not even a race... More
