http://rimart.us/2012/03/review-bj-restaurant-in-daytona-beach/ BJ Restaurant is one of our family’s favorite dining places within the Daytona Beach area. Aside from their wide choices of food and beverages, we like the quick service from the staff and the hip-and-lively ambiance. Be forewarned though, the waiting line can be long, especially during dinner service. But if you are looking for peace-and-quiet, this is not the place for you. The other night, our family decided to eat dinner at BJ. On our way there, we were crossing our fingers, hoping for a shorter waiting period. We got lucky! We instantly got a table. The knight ordered his favorite New Orleans Jambalaya, which is really good. In fact, it was once my favorite, but I had to stop since I started my no-red-meat diet. Instead, I chose their Veggie Burger. The menu book does not really state what kind of patty they used, so I assumed that, it would be just like any other vegetable patty. I was wrong! Assuming is never good. The patty is basically just seasoned rice shaped like a patty. Perhaps, when the restaurant named it “Veggie Burger”, the vegetable part must refer to the lettuce, tomato and onion that come with the burger. Was I disappointed? Heck, yeah! It was all carb! A rice patty in a bun, that’s what it was to me. At the price of about ten bucks, it is not what I expected. But anyway, this does not stop me from dining there though. The other foods are too good to pass. Lesson learned – when in doubt, ask.
If you don't have a "home" jewelry store, you MUST make Masterpiece your own! You will be part of a happy family, not just a customer, there. Get on their mailing list (or become a fan on Facebook) to stay informed on all their creative and fun sales and promotion, register for their rewards card and earn points toward more purchases. And, attend special events right in the store with music, refreshments, prizes, discounts, and fun! These people do such a wonderful job of finding new clients and keeping their current clients continually impressed. Their store is gorgeously decorated, and the staff is extremely warm and knowledgeable. This a family business, so the the level of pride and devotion is obvious in every little detail. Their inventory changes, they buy jewelry, they offer estate pieces, have "wish lists" for clients, do special orders and repairs, and have the coolest new thing in the jewelry market--a book to keep track of all your jewelry complete with pictures and appraisals! The book was designed by one of the owners, Stacey. Yes, I know ... I cannot say enough about how much my family and I enjoy Masterpiece Jewelers. This is just the kind of place you need to have to call your own! Visit and you'll see what I mean!
My wife and I moved to Daytona Beach in 2003, and it took a few years to find the perfect breakfast place. We don't each out for lunch or dinner much, but on the weekends we like to have a breakfast out. After years of passing Omelet House, we gave it a try in early 2007 and it was amazingly good. First off, there is no restaurant with better service than this one -- the three waitresses are the friendliest in the biz. Dan, the owner, is very cool too. The food is awesome, big portions. I personally love the biscuits and gravy, breakfast sandwiches and chipped beef, but the signature dish to me is the hash brown casserole grilled. Anybody who goes here MUST try this dish. Everything's good. I'm not an egg guy, but everybody who goes there says the omelets are as good as they come -- in fact, we had a low-key bachelor weekend for my brother once, with up to 20 guys in town, and the lot of them insisted on returning there every one of the 3 mornings. So, to sum up -- great food, the service is second to none, prices are about right for the portions. The surrounding area is slightly rundown and the building isn't spectacular, but don't let that scare you away. Once you're inside you'll be glad you came.
