Get the Shrimp Boat Appetizer. She Crab soup is great. Great water views from large deck. A real treat.

My wife and I visited Daytona Beach for her birthday. The first night we drove down to Ponce Inlet and the Down the Hatch Seafood Restaurant. I had the best ever Tuna steak with a crumbled Blue Cheese sauce and brussel sprouts with fired peppers & onions. Great meal and at at price that was very reasonable, less than $25.00. A view of the inlet, waterway and marina with boats passing by occasionally. My wife had the bacon wrapped scallops, biggest ones I've ever seen. Combined with a nice large dinner salad, this place can't be beat and definitely worth the drive!

This is a great restaurant, almost completely rebuilt after last September’s hurricane. Everything inside is new: big windows with water views on two sides, lovely decor, nice bar, and great outdoor bar and seating as well. The food is great. My favorite is the she-crab soup. Be sure to ask for the sherry and float it on top. We also had a shrimp boat: hot shrimp, cheese, celery, peppers in a creamy sauce served in a scooped out 10” sourdough baguette. Yummy.
You can come by boat and tie up right at the dock, where several big boats are moored. There are even boat trips available, don’t know the details.

Very good service. Complimentary assorted bread basket was extremely good! Garden salad fresh and delicious. Did not like their version of crab bisque. But their coconut shrimp more than made up for my disappointment in the bisque!
