Never been to the Oyster Pub but I definitely second the Brickyard Bar and Grill. I went there for the first time this past March and although the menu was rather limited the burger was awesome! One of the best I’ve ever eaten. Thick, juicy, cheese melted perfectly etc..etc…I think that their fries were pretty good too. Didn’t get the wings there but I can imagine that they’re good as well.
Also head down to Port Orange (about 10-15 minute ride, depending where exactly your coming from) and go to Aunt Catfish’s on the River. Some of the best catfish you’ll ever eat. They’ve also got a really nice hot and cold salad bar. Hot bar includes sweet corn bread, bbq beans, cheese grits, fried apples along with some others as well. This hot and cold salad bar comes with almost every dinner! I also recommend the Alligator and Shark bite combo for an app. – I get that all the time. Also if your a Key Lime Pie fan – same room because they’ve got a great one! Enjoy
The Oyster Pub … try to sit at the bar. They will tell you honestly how the oyster are today … there will be plenty of people having them, ask them too! They are always good. I suggest getting a couple dozen, lightly steamed.
While at OP, you can have grilled wings, but save your appetite for The Brickyard on International Speedway. Try to sit at the bar have their wings instead "CC" that’s what they call grilled. But make sure you have a burger their — about the best burger in the USA! Servers are great. Say Hi to Little Karen.
There are plenty of good eatin’ places down there. Do a RF search and you’ll find plenty.
Welcome to RF.
My wife and I will be visiting Daytona Beach in mid May. Can anyone give us some suggestions as to where to eat? We heard about a place called the Oyster Pub. Has anyone been there?
For great cheeseburgers as well as other plates, like meat loaf, try Earl Street Diner. It’s just across from the Ocean Center on Earl Street of course.
Baah Ben- It’s so funny you posted about Leahann’s. My mom and I drove past there on our way home(Port Orange)from the Super Walmart and the internet "casinos" on Beville just the other day, right before Thanksgiving. We pulled in the shopping center to see if that Dog Bakery was still there, we knew they opened in Port Orange, but we heard there was another one in its place (yes, our dog is spoiled). Anyway, it was about 8:30pm and the parking lot was packed. We couldn’t figure out where everyone was. We thought they were probably in the bar, then we noticed Leahann’s, we didn’t even know it was there. The place was packed! At 8:30 at night and a weekday!
I hopped out of the car to go inside and get a takeout menu. The place smelled fantastic! We can’t wait to try it (after we finish all the Thanksgiving leftovers). We have been looking for good Chinese food ever since we moved here 2 years ago. The Chinese buffets are good, but sometimes you just want to get takeout or a sit down meal. We have yet to find a good eggroll like they make back in NY. I also like Thai food wich you don’t find too much down here, I don’t think I ever had Viet food, but my Uncle likes it (he was in the Vietnam war). We’ll have to take him there when he visits. It’s great to hear that she may open in Port Orange. The only good Chinese food around is the Joy Luck Buffet.
Thanks so much Baah Ben, after your suggestion, we will definitely be trying Leahann’s soon![:)]
It’s great to read all the positive reviews on the Brickyard…I’ve been living here now for seven years and I’ve posted on it many times, too.
For all of you who love that place and also love Chinese food, let me suggest you try Leahann’s in Daytona Beach, too. This is a very good Chinese restaurant, something you would not normally expect in these parts. They also offer some really good Viet and Thai food, too. Don’t be concerned that one place can offer three types of cuisines either. It works. Give it a try, being sure to try some of their Chinese first though.
Some suggestions would be Nancy’s fried rice, shrimp with spicy sauce, Char Shu Ding, Moo Goo Gia Pan with black bean sauce, the ribs, homemade egg rolls, General Chow’s, mixed soup (eggdrop and won ton soup)…it’s all good.
Leahann, the owner is making plans for a new place in Port Orange.
Ichecked this post about 2pm on Sunday. should have looked in the A.M. I would have met you guys at the Brickyardfor lunch. Ilive about 15 mins. from there in S.Daytona.
I was in Daytona looking for commercial real estate for the company I consult with along with West Palm Beach, Lakeland and Orlando.
The Brickyard was great and I also enjoyed their onion rings.
I am in Lakeland but I am changing locations this after noon for the Courtyard in Lake Beauna Vista. I am going to try the next Dixie Crossroads in Orlando which I believe is located in the International area.
Back home now after a fantastic weekend of racing! As soon as I get my video on YouTube, I will post the link here for all to see. Left the track at around 5PM and headed straight for Dixie Crossroads in Titusville so that we could end a near perfect weekend with a near perfect meal. Had fried catfish with a side of slaw and fries and washed it down with many sweet teas.
JohnA – yeah, we were bummed that you were not around this weekend but no biggie. You know where I will always stay whenever we are in town. Also, all of my friends who stayed there loved Perry’s too! Can’t wait to come back and see you. In fact, I owe you a dinner. You choose the place and it is on me next time we are in town, ok? [;)]
Paul – DAMN!!! You are one of the guys here I am dying to meet in person! If I had only known sooner that, I would have delayed my departure a couple of hours so that we could have enjoyed a few burgers together. What are you in Daytona for anyways? The Historic Sportscar Race weekend next weekend?? BTW, give a BIG thanks to Gregg (wheregreggeats) because he is the REAL reason The Brickyard became famous on these forums. He’s the one who got me to go there for the first time too…..THANKS GREGG!! [8D]
Congrats Paul, I had the feeling that this would be your kind of place. Glads you enjoyed it.
Dang it Dude. I was out of town this weekend, took the grand children to Barberville on Sat for:
and shot an IDPA match in Orlando on Sun. [:(] Glad you enjoyed your stay with us, thanks for choosing Perry’s as "Your home away from home" while in Daytona Beach.
I justgot back from the Brickyard in Daytona. I have tosay thanks to BlueMaxx, Traveling Man and others for their advice. That was definately one of the best burges I have ever had. Tender, tasty, huge, great fries, great onion rings and a neat setting. I will definately be back.
It is difficult finding aburger that is tender and tasty. In addition it was so huge that could not have all of it.
The only negative was their cole slaw was not my particular taste. It was very good, just not my taste in cole slaw.

I had a full breakfast at the Krystal just east of I-95 about six months ago. They did a very nice job. I would have never thunk it.

I am at the Courtyard on Richard Petty Blvd and getting ready to go to the Brickyard for one of their famous burgers. I will let you guys know my opinion but I am sure it will be very good.
I am watching the Colts vs. Patriots and the NASCAR race before I go .
I left Knoxville at 5:00AM this morning for Charleston, SC, met and agent their to look at some property and drove on To Daytona. Got here at 5:00PM. Having a cocktail before I got to the Brickyard.
Really looking forward to the Brickyard.

Sundancer said he was planning to eat at the Brickyard Sunday (tonight) … Look for him. Probably no (Little) Karen on a Sunday night — who knows, you may luck out.
