RESTAURANT OF THE WEEK
One of the more pleasant auto strolls is to drive from Daytona Beach northward along A1A. Miles of beaches, hotels, and nice little restaurants. As we passed through Flagler Beach around lunch time one Saturday afternoon we saw this restaurant and popped in.
This is not a huge restaurant but you can tell it has been there for a long time. My kind of place. Most tables have nice views of the blue ocean just across the street.
Our waitress assured us that all the seafood was fresh. She pointed toward the rear and said the seafood comes from the seafood market which is attached to the restaurant. After lunch we checked it out and it looked good. The folks at the market assured us that everything was fresh including the shrimp.
For our starter we shared an order of conch fritters. They were perfectly seasoned with chewy bites of conch inside. That's fine because that's the nature of conch - chewy. They were crisp on the outside and soft on the inside, just as they should have been. I really didn't care for the dipping sauce, however. It appeared to be a combination of mustard, mayo and horseradish. Something just clashed in my palate.
My wife ordered a fresh grouper sandwich for her lunch and she gave it a perfect ten. There were so many filets between the buns that she had to take a couple off and eat them separately. I chose a fried seafood platter and it was very good. It came with a large fish filet, crab cake, shrimp and scallops. The first couple of bites of fish tasted a little fishy. But the rest of it was great. Everything else was very good. I asked what kind of fish I had on my plate and our server said it was either flounder or grouper. My seafood platter, which wasn't skimpy on volume, ran just under 11 bucks. My wife's grouper sandwich was ten or something like that. Good value for money!
There is a large parking lot to one side of the restaurant for beachgoers. So you might want to head to the restaurant, enjoy lunch, and then slip across the street for some fun in the sun and surf.
