Daytona Beach Restaurants
When looking at Daytona Beach real estate or after a hard day of looking at property, a good meal can be a really good break. These are our favorite restaurants in Daytona Beach, Ormond Beach and Port Orange. You know the chains, so here are some local ideas. If you’re from out of town, or new to the area, these are some great places to try and enjoy.

521 S. Yonge St. (US1)
Ormond Beach (South of Granada)
Mario’s has been in the same location since the 50s. The food is very good and the service is excellent. They also have a great take-out service where you can get food for dinner or for parties. There’s a full bar.
1930 W Granada Blvd #5,
Ormond Beach (West of I-95)
The best pizza we’ve found outside of New York City. We’ve also had dinners. This place reminds me of many of the places in the New York. It’s beer and wine and down to earth.
175 South Nova Rd.
Ormond Beach (South of Granada next to the Firehouse)
Simply, this is our favorite restaurant. We eat here 3-4 times a month. You can choose a teppanyaki meal with the chef giving you a show while he prepares your food. You can also sit a table and order from the regular or sushi menu. The food is great, and there’s a lot of it. We get two meals every time we eat at Tokyo. There’s a full bar and the staff is the friendliest and dedicated to giving you an enjoyable experience.
3785 South Nova Road
Port Orange (North of Dunlawton)
That we live about 20-30 minutes from La Fiesta, and it’s where we go for Mexican, you can understand why we like it best for Mexican food. I love Margaritas and the are excellent here.
There’s now a second located in The Trails Shopping Center in Ormond Beach.
1930 W Granada Blvd
Ormond Beach (West of I-95)
Our favorite breakfast place. The food is good and reasonable and it’s great for Sunday brunch. They also serve lunch.
Peach Valley Cafe
185 E Granada Blvd
Peach Valley is on the beachside and if I have business there I will go to there rather than Heffers. They also serve lunch. On the weekends there’s usually a wait so be prepared.
100 S Atlantic Ave (South of Granada)
Stonewood has great food and one of the more active bars in the area. Moderately priced, we always have a good meal here.
Betty’s A1A Cafe
1900 Ocean Shore Blvd (North of Granada)
Betty gives you a lot of good food in a family style setting. Nothing fancy, just very good food.
749 S Nova Rd
Sit down Chinese , Thai and Vietnamese food. Very good food with a full bar. When we want a quiet Chinese or Thai meal this is where we go. It’s been there for a long time.
2475 W International Speedway Blvd
Take out and sit down. We love the Dim Sum and Fried Dumplings. You get a lot of food and there’s usually more than we eat in one sitting. It’s not fancy, but the food is really good. If the atmosphere is not to your liking, try takeout.
Dimitri’s On The Beach
790 South Atlantic
Dimitir’s place on the beach is a Greek feast. There’s a full menu, not just sandwiches. There’s also a full bar and no lack of Ouzo. This place is really good and is among our three favorite restaurants in the area.
127 S. Ocean Ave.
Steel bands, karaoke, and good food and drink. The Ocean Deck is a Daytona landmark and you should try it a least once. Some love it, some hate it, but everyone remembers.
Caffeine – Now Called Grind Gastropub
49 W Granada Blvd
Ormond Beach, FL
Located west of the Granda Bridge. Caffeine is adding some spice to downtown Ormond Beach. The Ahi is great and you can get a nice meal and good wine for a good price. The also have Belgian Ale. Few restaurants carry Chimay Blue in the area, but you can find it at The Grind.
