Take a drive down to Ponce Inlet for a great spot for drinks or food. Lots of history here also. The gift shop seems out of place, but the overall atmosphere is fun and laid back.

Although the day was cold and blustery, our waiter Mike was very friendly and provided excellent service. The Happy Hour appetizers and drinks were nicely priced and very good. This bar/restaurant on Racing's North Turn is a must see when you are in Daytona!

Had fish'n'chips which were good and crispy. Husband had seafood mac'n'cheese which was a large portion. Service was ok. We chose a table inside, since there were people smoking on the deck. But, the smoke still blew in, not making for a great experience.
