From Mahi Mahi and Swordfish to shrimp and Snapper, finding a restaurant in the Daytona Beach area that serves locally caught seafood is a cinch. One of the most popular eateries is Ocean Deck Restaurant & Beach Club, a Daytona Beach landmark situated directly on the ocean. Try the sea scallops and a bowl of the New England Clam Chowda’.
There’s also Hull’s Seafood Market in Ormond Beach, a seafood shop with in-house dining. Order their fresh catch of the day and enjoy it on a toasted Kaiser roll, or in their Fish Tacos or Fish-N-Chips. Make sure to ask for extra tartar sauce and bring some fresh fish home for the next night’s dinner.
Another popular seafood eatery is Boondocks Restaurant, located in the Adventure Yacht Harbor Marina in Port Orange. Family owned and operated for nearly two decades, Boondocks has a great outdoor seating area right on the docks where you’ll witness hungry fish surfacing for their next meal. The menu features everything from steamed snow crab legs to conch chowder and Oysters Rockefeller.
Further south in Ponce Inlet is the Inlet Harbor Restaurant & Marina, located along the Halifax River. If you’re looking to catch a vibrant Florida sunset while enjoying live music, drinks and possible manatee sightings, then this is the place for you.
Another place to enjoy fresh seafood samplings is Aunt Catfish’s – also on the Halifax River. Try the coconut shrimp, citrus grilled salmon or one of the various mouthwatering catfish entrees. Whether you’re in the mood for homemade chowder, a fresh caught shrimp platter or a juicy seared Swordfish steak, Daytona Beach and the surrounding area offers hundreds of eateries to satisfy your seafood crave.
