Inlet Harbor Restaurant is located at 133 Inlet
Harbor Rd Ponce inlet, FL 32127. It sits at a marina with a huge outdoor
deck. A guitarist was playing old tunes and the evening was just
gorgeous. Our 15 month old granddaughter loved the place and was treated
like royalty. Ponce Inlet is a gorgeous end to the peninsula. There is a
lighthouse museum located close by. Once again the menu was gigantic
offering multiple kinds of fresh seafood cooked many ways and also
offered sandwiches, salads, appetizers etc. We began with two island
drinks the run runner and the sunset smash which were remarkable
inexpensive I had shrimp and scallop primavera which was so large I
finished it for lunch the next day. My husband ordered ribs which he
just loved. They have wonderful little corn fritters and everyone was
very happy. Another must go in Daytona.

One can never leave out the shiny silver
Starlight diner. The corn beef hash was plentiful and crusty. The
waffles, eggs, toast and bacon were gobbled up by both my husband and
granddaughter. No fanfare of fuss just good old diner food at reasonable

The Big Kahuna is in downtown Daytona located
at 1010 Main St. It has huge open windows and a very eclectic style. The
menu was great. I had a teriyaki chicken breast with pineapple and
cheese on a huge bun. My husband ordered Philly cheesesteak which once
again he and my granddaughter devoured. I recommend this for a great
lunch spot. It might not be the best place for children at night but a
must go when staying in Daytona.

Desperately wanting Italian food we headed to
a place we don’t have locally, The Olive Garden located at 1725
International Speedway. I had spaghetti and Meatballs and my husband
Fettuccine Alfredo. All meals come with salad and bread sticks. Once
again our granddaughter help her grandpa gobble up the meal and we still
had leftovers. The wait staff all were good to her. Good choice for us.

Sloppy Joes at Ocean Walk Shoppes 250 N Atlantic
Sloppy Joes is a restaurant we visited about 10 years ago in Key West.
It was said to be one of Hemingway’s favorite haunts. We loved the place
in Key West and we loved this Sloppy Joes as much. Service right from
the door to table and everything else was spot on and friendly. The menu
is quite comprehensive offering all ranges of cuisine. The offer Golden
Lobster Bisque and Chowder, Thai Chicken Salad, retro Cobb, Taco salads.
For Beach Specialties they offer Honey Glazed Salmon, Signature Alfredo,
Chicken Parmesan, Ribeye etc. The sandwich choices are just as diverse
with the Big Sloppy right up there on the top. We both ordered the big
sloppy and it was huge and delicious. They offer pulled pork, black
angus burgers, Gulf Coast Grouper, Havana Sandwich, and much more. I
can’t even begin to list the wonderful appetizers and desserts. This is
a must go to in Daytona. Even you are just passing through. I highly
recommend Sloppy Joes in Daytona.

Stavro’s Pizza House has had the same owner
since 1975.Located in a quaint artsy area of Downtown Daytona Beach.
Located at 262 South Beach St. We are not able to get good New York
style pizzas where we live so we were apprehensive. We just wanted a
good pizza so badly. We were not disappointed. We selected a small
cheese pizza with mushrooms and black olives. All dough is made on the
premises and each pizza is made to order. It was a fabulous pizza. Even
our 15 month granddaughter loved it. They have a very extensive menu
from pizza’s to salads, Stromboli, calzone, gyro, spinach pie, Greek
salad and Hot Oven Grinders as the northerners call Subs and all the
pastas. Take the time to search out Stavro’s Pizza House . I guarantee
you will not be disappointed.

Spanky’s Seafood Grill and Bar in Brunswick,
GA sits on a beautiful marsh with a dock and boats. Great views, great
food, great family atmosphere, and excellent service. Open 7 days a week
for lunch and dinner you can enjoy fresh seafood, gourmet burgers and
their Original Chicken Fingers. Located at 1200 Glynn Ave Brunswick, Ga
it is an easy hop off 95 for lunch or dinner when traveling north or
south. We ordered a steak sandwich which was a very generous portion and
a Shrimp salad with onion rings in the coleslaw. The prices are
reasonable the menu is extensive and I recommend it highly when visiting
Brunswick or traveling rout 95.

Near the Daytona raceway there is a greyhound
race track. It is so much fun to watch greyhound races. We won a little
and had a super time. They also now have a poker room for those who want
more than just the dogs. It was a fun night out.

A short drive from Daytona is Ponce de Leon inlet
with a lighthouse museum and the Inlet Harbor Restaurant and Marina.
There's a screened in porch overlooking the inlet and great food and
entertainment. On the way out there is a great restaurant called The North
Turn. It is oceanfront with a porch bar and inside restaurant. It has lots
of racing memorabilia as it once was the original racetrack.
