It’s okay, cool atmosphere eating by the water, they have live music but I guess tonight’s entertainment wasn’t as good it should, the food was fresh,

We usually go here a few times a year when in Daytona for the crab legs. They always have nice sized ones with good seasoning. Found out tonight they don’t have them anymore and took it off the menu. Please bring them back.

Thank you for identifying our quality standards. The reason we took crab legs off the menu we are having difficulty getting the nice sized ones that you are used to.

Great atmosphere and friendly staff. Some of the food in our group needed a little more seasoning and the prices were a little high. Overall, it was a good dining experience.
