What to Eat in Daytona Beach

With Daytona Beach welcoming a continuous stream of diverse visitors – from families to spring breakers to auto racing fans – it's no surprise that this town caters to a variety of taste buds. Set against the backdrop of the Atlantic Ocean and the Halifax River, it should also be no surprise that fresh seafood (think: raw oysters and gator bites) is never in short supply.

Those kicking off a lazy day at the beach might consider one of Daytona Beach’s brunch spots – including Crabby Joe’s on the Sunglow Pier, where you can enjoy a crab cake benedict while watching fisherman walk by en route to their next catch. Later, take a break from the sand and surf at one of Daytona Beach's many ice cream parlors. Local favorites (like Cow Lick’s Homemade Ice Cream and Arcade) offer a variety of flavors and toppings to satisfy your sweet tooth. Looking for a fun way to end your day? Head over to Caribbean Jack's to soak in the sounds of live music and gaze at the gorgeous marina views over cocktails and dinner.

If you're a landlubber seeking an upscale meal in a laid-back atmosphere, check out Hyde Park Prime Steakhouse; diners say their steak is grilled to perfection. For those coming off a day at the speedway, the ribs and pulled pork at Hog Heaven Bar-B-Q rarely disappoint. This causal, friendly establishment is an absolute must during Bike Week, when you can watch bikes zoom by while enjoying your meal.

Meanwhile, fans of craft beer and artisan spirits will want to follow the Ale Trail. Start with a flight at the Daytona Beach Brewing Company, and then grab a bite at one of the food trucks stationed outside.
