“Fun place”
Reviewed January 28, 2013

Loved it! Best shrimp and crab dinner ever. 1/2 pound of steamed shrimp with or without Old Bay seasoning and 3 clusters of Alaska Snow Crab. At for an hour. Not a bad price for the amount of food. Cole slaw wasn't creamy enough for me, but tasted good. Service was excellent.

“Good food,bad service”
Reviewed January 27, 2013

We went there on a Sunday night while staying in Daytona Beach,mainly because of the reviews on TA.We were seated promptly,only to be waited on by the worst waitress by far for the 2 weeks we were in Florida.No eye contact,no greeting,just "Are you ready to order?"She answered questions with a yes or no,like we were bothering her,and like she really didn't want to be there.A table of 4 sat next to us,and she treated them the same way.She had a disheveled appearance,wearing a grubby looking hoodie and blue jeans.It seemed as if she was a fill in for the night.The food was good and the prices were ok.A lot of the help was hanging around the bar watching a football game,including cooks;not very professional.While we were there,throngs of people went into the Bonefish restaurant across the road.Needless to say,we did not return the next night;we went to the Bonefish instead.See my review.

Read your review today. Of course I was not happy. I know exactly who your server was and have printed this off to show her how she was perceived (name blacked out). In addition, she and I will have a long discussion on how we present ourselves to our guests. In addition, I will speak to the cooks regarding watching TV. Of course, I took the night off to attend a birthday party, and the assistant manager was apparently not paying attention. I do apologize and hope you will dine with us again. I will address your concerns immediately, as they are valid.

“Crab legs!”
Reviewed January 25, 2013

This is a local dive as well as a tourist restaurant. They are famous for their all you can eat crab legs. Food is good but don't go just before closing and expect to get good crab legs. If you go at 6 or 7 you will wait to be seated.

“Agree”
Reviewed January 24, 2013

Good food with a nice variety with a casual, friendly, sports bar kind of atmosphere. We always grab a meal or get some take out wings for the track when in town.

“Great food and service!”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

The family(2adults,4kids), visited Charlie Horse in the evening, during what is considered the area (Daytona Beach) off season. That said, they place was still packed with a mix of tourist and locals. The theme is seafood. Our server was exceptional and the food seemed pricy, but compared to the size of the meal was a really good deal. We will definitely go back and recommend to others.
