We plan on going back asap. The food was absolutely wonderful. We got the Colossal Nachos appetizer and we all agreed it was the best nachos we had ever had! I got the French dip sandwich, and, at the risk of sounding like a broken record, it was the best ever. :) My mom got the Cuban sandwich and loved it. No room for dessert unfortunately.... It was very busy when we were there and our waiter was just running back and forth and initially the service was not so good. But I know the waiter was doing all he could do! I highly recommend this restaurant. It was my favorite of all the restaurants we ate at on our Daytona Beach vacation. Five stars from me.

The swordfish special was bland and did not seem to fresh. The red pepper sauce over it did help to give the fish some flavor, and the rice and black bean side dish was also bland. I also ordered a salad with the meal which was very fresh and the dressing, honey mustard, was excellent. The atomosphere is excellent, and the wait staff are pleasant. My companion ordered the chicken wrap, which he said was very tasty, and full of meat. It came with a side of fries, which were ok. Your best bet is to stick to the regular menu, and skip the specials.
The service was great. The view with outside seating next to the water is great. Unfortunately, the food was a huge disappointment, especially considering the high prices. The chowder was really thin. Maybe two potatoes. The gator bites were ok but very small and not very many. My grilled chicken was bland. I don't believe it was seasoned at all. Just tasteless. But what really got me were the mashed potatoes. Some sort of mixture of potato, brocholi and cheese? And they were a weird grey color. Even the waiter said they looked unappealing.
