Lunch was really bad. They now allow dogs in restaurant. I guess you could say the food has gone to the dogs. Will dogs eat anything?

I read most of the reviews and they were pretty harsh, so maybe I went it with low expectations. The food was “fine”, on par with what one would get in a bar. The seating is now ALL outside but half of is it covered....With the nice breeze, we were comfortable on this 80 degree day. Service was pretty good; food came promptly but multiple requests for ketchup were needed. The fries are cute, but no longer top-of-the-line like they used to be. I would have reported how a launch looked from here, but it was scrubbed. Go to sit beachfront, go to visit with friends, but I wouldn’t go for the food.More

Been coming to Racing's for 20+ years and just can't love the new vibe, New owners have the absolute right to do as they please but risk losing a lot of good will. Used to be reasonable and inviting now just MEH. Had Mad Marion...the other night which for years was a tasty and relatively inexpensive sandwich, probably Basa now it is Grouper and "Market Price' $28.00 for a sandwich and fries is not a winnerMore

The only reason I gave it a two was the view from the deck. We waited over an hour and watched other people seated before us . Finally gave up and went to another restaurant.

Always nice to sit by the beach. Food is good. View is wonderful. Prices a little high, but so is everyone. Took some good items off the menu ? / bacon wrapped shrimp, bruschetta. We enjoy going once a week or so.

This is the third time visiting this restaurant. We were on vacation in Daytona the same time last year and enjoyed this restaurant very much. However this time the food I ordered was simply terrible. It was listed as a new item on the menu....A shrimp sandwich served on a roll which was supposed to be an Amaroso roll but it was not. It was described as a spicy shrimp sandwich with a number of toppings including avocado. It was was,a sub roll that contained six tasteless shrimp topped,with arugula and a small sliver of avocado - no dressing of any kind. It was so dry I could hardly swallow it. The waitress never asked how ourbmeal was and threw the check on our table as she rushed by to wait on someone else. My husband ordered the salmon dinner. He said it was just o.k. But the rice was totally tasteless. Very disappointed with his $50 meal. We won’t be back.More

We met friends here for lunch when we were in Daytona Beach. We shared a hamburger with fries. Delicious. Service prompt. Fun place with a gorgeous view. Will definitely go again.

Very disappointed in how Racing’s North turn has gone down hill since new ownership and the remodel due to hurricane. I live next door and use to love that place and always voted for it for best beach bar. Went there all the time. Now...there is no more takeout, food is just okay. They have music during football games and there is no inside seating when it is scorching hot outside. We use to love to takeout food and bring it to our poolside for a family lunch break. Very disappointed. Add places need to now remove takeout from your mentionMore

It was very busy on Race Week. We only had to wait about an hour for a table and waited another 46 minutes for our food. We got a salad with salmon, chicken tenders, and the roasted half chicken. All of the food was very...good. The view of the beach was nice. The inside had lots of racing memorabilia.More

We happened up on this place when taking a little beach detour from Orlando. There was a short wait, but plenty to look at while waiting. This place is loaded with NASCAR and racing history. Finally got a table on the deck, live music, great...atmosphere. Waitress was quick to get our orders. After waiting longer than normal for food, the manager brings out everyone’s meal except for mine. She explains that mine was undercooked (chicken) and she wouldn’t let it leave the kitchen. They grilled another and burned it. She asked if I would like to wait for another to be grilled, or order something else. She was very apologetic. I ordered something quicker and she offered me a drink from the bar. I wasn’t charged for any of my food and drinks. I would be more than happy to eat there again if we are ever in the area! The manager and waitress were wonderful!More

We checked the website which said Happy Hour Drinks Monday-Friday 11:00 am - 7:00 pm which included House Wines and Beers. We arrived Tuesday at 5:00 and bartender said “we don’t have a Happy Hour”. So, we had a glass of house wine and a...draft beer which were served in a plastic glass. We were charged $15.25!!! In closing, owner needs to update websiteMore

Stopped here for dinner one night and sat out on the open patio. The service was a little slow and the food was so so. We ordered the crab dip for an appetizer and when it came out I was shocked with how much was...on the plate! A table of 6 could have shared this easily; however, it wasn’t as good as it used to be and just lacked a real crab flavor. I ordered the cheesesteak, and while tasty it was pretty basic with just meat and cheese and no veggies. My girlfriend ordered a medium burger that came out well done, and even though it was overcooked it still tasted fine. Prices weren’t too bad in my opinion, and the portion sizes were great, but the food was just lacking any real flavor or insight. This would be a great place to hang out and have some appetizers and drinks, but they definitely need to work on the menu a little bit.More
