My husband, myself and my parents are going to Daytona Beach in September. We would love to have some good ideas on where to find good fresh seafood. We will probably be hitting the "early bird specials" and eating in the late afternoon. We will be wanting a cocktail or two - but beer and wine will be fine if the food is really good. Would love to have a view, but the food is the main thing - want a sit-down place with servers. Do not mind food and fun - but at our ages, we don't want the "spring break" type atmosphere! LOL

Any help is very much appreciated! I know we will be eating out many times, so a variety of ideas is welcome.

Worth the drive to Ponce Inlet and make sure you schedule your visit when "Then2Now" is playing on the deck (usually afternoons.) Fabulous band that has 7 to 70 year olds dancing. You could easily spend several hours here:

*INLET HARBOR RESTAURANT & MARINA - a Daytona Beach RESTAURANT WITH Great food & ENTERATINMENT...

Across the river in Holly Hill is Park's:

PARK'S SEAFOOD RESTAURANT - Early Bird Specials from 4:00 to 5:00 PM

And if you don't mind a 20 minute drive up the coast to Flagler Beach, you can actually pick your fish from the display case!

Flagler Fish Company

Bon Appetit!

I don't know why everyone comes to Daytona and wants or expects great seafood. Daytona is a BBQ town. It is not known for seafood.

That doesn't mean there is no good seafood, Park's in Holly Hill is good. There are some other decent places, but it's not what Daytona is known for.

Are you kidding??? BBQ??? What...Sonny's?

Some of the best fish I've ever had has come off the boats at the inlet. Wahoo, Golden Tile....

Got to disagree with you on this, Mike.

Forgot to mention to the OP:

I think we expect great seafood because of the location.

Thanks anyhow for the information on Parks.

to me Daytona isn't a big seafood area. the area has went down since 10-12 years ago.
they are trying to revive it but I think it will still be the same area.

I lived in Volusia County and wasn't impressed, now I live in Tampa and the West Coast of Florida by far has the best seafood places!

also depending on how soon you go you might be waiting with some crowds.
NASCAR Speed Weeks starts Friday for 2 weeks and then Bike Week is first week of March and then right into Spring Break

I have 2 others beside Aunt Catfishes which is ok,

try:

Our Deck Down Under

or

Caribbean Jack's

Forgot about Aunt Catfish! I love that place. I didn't go there nearly enough when I lived there.

I have been trying to do some research on that - as well as the food - and am thinking that perhaps the second week in September would be ideal. No bike week, or BCR, or anything going on with racing. ( I THINK! ) LOL

Any thoughts on this are appreciated also! (Pretty please??? LOL) We would soooooo love a quiet time to be there - as much as possible anyhow.

My sincere thanks to all of you - I really so appreciate the input!
