Favorite Seafood Spots Around Daytona

Seafood restaurants in Daytona are always a favorite stop! Here are some places we love to visit:

A recent discovery (from one of our members–thank you for the tip!) is Hull’s Seafood Restaurant and Market in Ormond Beach. It has a great patio and delicious food at affordable prices.

Riptides Raw Bar & Grill (also in Ormond Beach) is home of the 12 foot shark! They offer live music and all-you-can-eat crab legs.

At Aunt Catfish’s on the River, you can dine directly on the Halifax river. They’re known for a spectacular Sunday brunch, and offer a wonderful family dining experience.

Racing’s North Turn sits on the very location where racing began in Daytona Beach. Here you can find a fun, ocean-front dining experience for the entire family.

A local favorite is Our Deck Down Under, which offers casual river-front dining for the entire family.

Pearl in San Antonio

Located north of downtown San Antonio, the Pearl district was an active brewery from 1883 until 2001. At that time, the historic 22-acre area was transformed into restaurants, shops and so much more, including the third campus of The Culinary Institute of America.

Some of our favorite highlights include the bar at Hotel Emma, a year-round farmers market (every Saturday and Sunday) and the First Thursday Night Market, offered each month, featuring live music, dining and shopping specials from local vendors and artisans.
