I asked the waitress why this place is always so busy and she said "consistent good food and service". She was so right. I had the fish sandwich, friends had a cheesesteak and other lunches. All well prepared and promptly served. This is not a fancy place, but you will find it packed with locals who know a good deal when they find it. Lots of families with multiple generations. A group of high school guys. Couples. All were here for the good food and service. Visitors make this a must do on every visit to town.

Had dinner there with my wife. The food was really good - I got the chicken wings and ribs with fries and my wife got the crab legs. Service was great - our server took the time to wash his hands and show my wife how to crack the crab legs open. Drinks were reasonably priced. Everyone was very friendly!

We had to wait roughly a half hour for a table, and it's a little pricy, but it was well worth it. Excellent staff. Excellent atmosphere. And, quite possibly the best steak that I've ever eaten. I rarely give 5/5 to anyone. This restaurant deserves every bit of it. A MUST stop if you're in the area.

Stopped to eat here on my way through Daytona Beach. Only place I used my Bank Card in this area. Got back to Tennessee and saw there was an additional charge for $200 from Daytona Beach Wal-Mart.
BEWARE - Use only cash here if you don't want this to happen to you.

Read your review and it left me a bit confused. Did you leave your credit card at our restaurant? I am trying to figure out how someone would go to the Daytona Beach Wal-Mart and charge something without physically having your card. Or was the purchase made online?? I am also wondering why you never bothered to contact us, so we could review our surveillance and do our own investigation. This is a family owned restaurant, and in the 20 years we have owned it, NO ONE has ever had their cardholder information compromised, and I am pretty confident that yours was not compromised by anyone working here.
