We've been to this place at least 5 times over the years. The best things are: the deck overlooking the ocean, the music and the friendly waitstaff. The food is average at best. Stick to the basics, wings and burgers. Seafood has been consistently over cooked as are the burgers. Nice selection of beer. Our latest visit we waited over... More

Oh yeah - I was brought up in the seafood business. Was introduced into a new fish - they grilled it to perfection. Mashed potatoes just like I would make. Good wine at a very nice price (hard to find). Perfect service. Take me back for more.

We waited for our food order from 12:30 to 2pm. We watched as large groups sat down all around us and were served their food within 15 to 20 minutes. The young man took our drink orders but when asked three to four times why everyone that just came were getting their orders and we have been there a long... More

Fun place to enjoy the view and learn a little about Daytona's racing history. The clam chowder was a meal in itself!

When down for bike week, we always save a night to go here, the food is good and the views are as good as they get. We got the shrimp tacos when we're fresh and tasty

It is bike week and crowds are plentiful on the streets and restaurants. We stopped at North Turn for lunch and the place was buzzing. In no time, we had a table and our drinks. Service is quick. Food is good. We shared nachos, fish tacos, a fish reuben. The servings were more than ample. The kids choices were served... More

We stumbled across this place when we were desperate for lunch driving down the Daytona coast. It looks nothing from outside but as you walk in you realise it's a museum dedicated to nascar racing as well as a great diner that opens out on to a lovely beach. It was also the start of bike week so there were... More

Dined here with family of 7 while on vacation. Service was quick and friendly. Everyone loved their food. We ordered the monte cristo sandwich to share and loved it. Our frozen creamsicle drink was also delicious. Burgers and fish Reuben were good, as well as the shrimp tacos and shrimp po'boy. Key lime pie was a let down, but we... More

Live music the night we went and had a lot of fun with different local people we met who recommend this place and come often! Also stopped for lunch one day. Reasonably priced food and drink.

Racing's North Turn is located on the beautiful Atlantic ocean. We offer a 5000 sq ft Oceanfront deck with and air conditioned inside dining room. The restaurant sits on the exact location where Nascar ran it's first sanctioned Grand National race in 1948 until 1958. The walls are lined with vintage photos of racing days gone by and our current racing heroes of today. We offer a full service bar with great views of the ocean and over 25 flat screen televisions with all you favorite sporting events. Each night we have Live music that starts at 6:00 PM.
