Oceanside Beach Bar & Grill - Flagler Beach

Highlights & Features: You've probably guessed by now but one of my favorite things is Oceanfront dining and Oceanside has just that!  This place covers it all, great atmosphere, great location and great food.  Mr. Suncoast and I have been several times and have never been disappointed.  We think their best dishes are the gyro, pizza, steak sandwiches and hamburgers.  And, they are open for breakfast every day.  We haven't tried it yet but some reviewers rave about the flaming cheese.  We'll have to check it out.
  •  Oceanfront dining
  • Indoor and outdoor seating
  • One indoor bar and another outdoor bar on the upper deck (awesome view)
Specials:  Happy hour from 4pm to 6pm

Serving:  Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

Location: 1848 S. Oceanshore Blvd. * Flagler Beach, FL * 32136


Beach Front Grille - Flagler Beach

Highlights & Features:  

Oceanfront, oceanfront, oceanfront.  What more can I say? This place sits along Highway A1A and since it has it's own parking lot, there is usually an unobstructed view of the ocean (see picture to the right).  The food is pretty good too.  We have visited twice and have had the opportunity to try a soup of the day (vegetable barley), potato skins and a patty melt.  All were very goo, particularly the soup.  No canned stuff here.
  • Indoor and outdoor seating
  • Two bars, one with a large picture window allowing indoor patrons a fine view of the water.
  • Sunday Brunch
  • Pretty darn good food!
  • Dog Friendly outdoor seating
  • Tuesday $5 burger or $6 cheese burger

Leanh's in South Daytona

Highlights & Features:  

The day of our visit we had business in Daytona so I took to TripAdvisor to find a place for dinner.  Leanh's was listed as the #1 restaurant (not just the #1 Chinese restaurant) so we decided to give it a try.  We arrived around 5:30pm or so on a Wednesday night and they were packed.  Even though they were very busy we were able to be seated right away.  The service was fast and friendly and the food was very good.  Mr. Suncoast commented that the wonton soup was the best he'd every had.  And that's saying something as every time we eat Chinese he orders wonton soup!  The service was fast and friendly.  If you are in Daytona this one is a must to try.

Specials: Catering available.

Serving: Lunch & Dinner *  Note: Closed on Sunday

Location: 1780 S Nova Rd * South Daytona * FL 32119
