Ate there two times , food wholesome and consistant and good, service very good. good portions moderate price. was on this side of bridge not beach side. In Daytona Proper not Ormond.

Also druggies, and losers, and misplaced individuals, circus like, wide open, but I am talking along strip by beach only. In this generation Honkey Tonk might mean hippies but in mine it meant whats above.

Just got back from the area, I liked it so much I bought a condo there.

Also I'm going to have to differ with your on the people there, they are all very nice. The are some who aren't millionaires by any means but I wouldn't call them druggies or losers by any means. All people are created in G-d's image.

And, if your gonna be homeless, hey, why not live where its nice :)

As for restaurants, I tired Delacato (sp?) which was just OK. And Bonefish, now if your in Florida, you've probably seen these as its either a chain or a franchise, but for being one its actually very good, I spoke with my waiteress in detail about the quality of the food. They never use the microwave, the fish is brought in fresh daily, anything not sold is throwing out, and everything was prepared and served very nice, its not often you find that in a chain restaurant. I had the grouper, which was actual wild caught grouper (don't get me started on farm raised fish) a lot of restaurants down there were servering some weird, a very distant variation of the grouper which is found in the South Pacific and calling it grouper, when if anything it tasted like a Jewfish (now known as the Goliath Grouper, however I still call it the Jewfish, because I am Jewish and the name Jewfish is not offensive to me so I'm not really sure why they ever changed it.) For those familiar with the Jewfish, I'd doesn't taste very good, they often weight in excess of 700 pounds, and if your going to eat one, its usually made in to a chowder.

My GPS was not working because the cigarette lighter was broken on my rental car so I didn't get to try your suggestions, Sweetwaters, but I will be sure to try that place my next trip down there. (Yes, I know people were still able to find places before the advent of the GPS :D)
