Enjoyed our dinner out on the patio! Lively restaurant with live music, beautiful views and an interesting look at stock car racing history. Well worth the drive from Daytona out to Port Orange/Ponce Inlet.

The food is really good, especially the hamburgers, French fries, clam chowder & nachos! The place sits at the north turn of the raceway, with lots of photos & memorabilia. Don't forget to visit the gift store. Enjoy your food & beverages on a very large deck, overlooking the beach or out of the sun inside (still outside). Ample parking... More

Came back after years away and still very good. Large bar and seating with large outdoor patio on the beach(ocean south of Daytona Beach). Very good food including appetizers and dinner. Wide variety on menu. Great ahi tuna and who else has bacon wrapped scallops. Three piece band and not too loud, good time dancing.

The restaurant gets its name from when they really raced motorcycles and cars on the beach. They have lots of old racing photos on the wall as you come in. We thought the food was very good. I had scallops with some awesome mashed potatoes prepared with bacon and cabbage. My husband loved the Mahi with almonds. There was a... More

Got the jumbo wings but didn't realize they had bones-- still super delish! The french fries are OUT OF THIS WORLD, so tasty. The golden margaritas were iced and not blended and a little strong for me. My dads summer chicken salad looked and tasted amazing along with my moms taco salad. Would recommend this place just because of the... More

I really like the atmosphere out on the deck. The beach is beautiful. The drinks and nachos were great. I didn't care for my mahi tacos, but my friends that ordered the same thing did, so I won't hold it against the restaurant :)

Went with friends and sat out on the balcony. The view was so wonderful and service was great. Had a band playing but was not loud enough to keep us from talking. I had scallops wrapped in bacon and they were delicious!! Going to go home and try to replicate them. Service was ok. Had a great time and would... More

First time here and the food didn't disappoint not one bit. Had the prime rib sandwich and started with the wings. Drinks are very strong and is kinda pricey, but sometimes it's worth it.

Wife and I both had a fish sandwich and were a bit disappointed. The fish was stringy (first time ever had stringy fish) and bread fell apart. The other couples said their food was ok. The view was good and band excellent (not too loud). We will try it again but pass on the fish sandwich.
