We have found the food and service to be consistently good at Charlie Horse. Not a fancy setting nor any view of the ocean, but if it's good food you want at reasonable prices, this might fit the bill. The bar is part of the main dining room and can get noisy at times. We shared a Philly cheese-steak sandwich... More

We've been coming here on every trip to Daytona just so we can feast on the crab legs for dinner. It's not a "fancy" restaurant, but it is clean and tidy, and it has a great bar. We come to the area to play golf and have fun, and the Charlie Horse makes for a great end to the day.

Service was horrible.....served our entree less than TWO minutes after serving our salads (in a hurry to get rid of us?). As far as the entree, too much breading, not hot, just pretty bad. If this is current standards at Charlie Horse, then won't be disappointed in not returning.

If you are in the Ormond / Daytona area ~ this is a must do for the crab leg lovers. We have visited the area for over decade and NEVER visit without a trip to the Charlie Horse. Expect to wait for a table. Have waited as much as an hour but the crab legs are premium quality above the... More

Second visit in perhaps 2 years. No sign visible from A1A, so missed the turnoff. Place looks like it may be closed from the road and into the parking lot - - it blends into its surroundings. Walking in, there's a stale smell inside, a little off-putting. Unfortunately (or fortunately, depending on how you look at it) all of the... More

For the price it was fine. Nothing spectacular but nice, clean, prompt service. Several were eating there in a Sunday night

Ordered for me and my mom. My mom only wanted certain items and wanted to order individually.. they accommodated her and was very friendly. The place was packet out when I went to pick the order up. Food was great.

Great shrimp dinner. Other members of our group also had good food notably the fish sandwich. The bisque was good but not great. Service was prompt and efficient. Prices were affordable. Overall we were very happy and will return again.

A few places in Daytona have All You Can Eat crab legs for about $45 (based on market prices) On Tuesdays at Charlie Horse you can get 2 lbs of crab legs for $26.99, with 2 sides (both the coleslaw and the red-skinned mash potatoes were outstanding). Two lbs is about all I can manage, so I wouldn't have eaten... More
