Seafood in Daytona

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

Riptides Raw Bar & Grill 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.
