McKenna's Place is a great find in New Smyrna Beach. There is a wide menu, with plenty of appetizers, soups, salads, sandwiches and full meals. Sam and Beth behind the bar were sweet and made sure we had everything we needed. McKenna's Place also seems...More

Constant traffic of locals. Obviously they know what's good. Fried fish comes with a fried chicken style batter, unexpectedly good. Nice selection of beers. Madison was a great server, a little sassy and very helpful.

This is where I go when I am inclined to overeat. You have to try the spinach-artichoke dip as a starter. I had the seafood platter and two lobsters. My friend, Bob had, of course the "Big Bob" ham sandwich. While the food was fantastic,...More
