When your looking for a restaurant in
Daytona Beach, there is only one place
Yes, we are technically a Daytona Beach restaurants
but we are worth the short trip south on US 1.
The Dolphin View is located on a bend in the intercoastal
waterway just 15 minutes from south Daytona and
1/2 hour from International speedway Dr.
Let me describe a typical afternoon at the Daytona
Beach Restaurant, Dolphin View. It will be
95 degrees with a heat index of 102. You get out
of your car in our parking lot and the heat hits
you like an open oven door. You come inside and
order your food thinking, "what am I doing here?
I need air conditioning."
Sunset at the Dolphin View Restaurant
Lunch is ordered, you get your drink and step outside
into another world. The tropical plants and view
take your breath away. As you move down the dock
looking for a seat by the water, the sea breeze
cools you off and the shading overhead blocks the
heat of the sun while allowing the light to get
thru. It feels like you are sitting under a palm
tree in a Jimmy Buffet song. The table by the water
beckons as the cool breeze takes you away to paradise.
Dolphins constantly swim back and forth in the water
right by where you are sitting. Pelicans are always
perched on the pilings and manatee and sea turtles
sometimes make an appearance as well.
When the sun goes down, the sunset views are spectacular.
As you can see from our pictures throughout this
site, you can not find a place more beautiful than
Just because we have the best view within a 100
miles doesn't mean we skimped on the food. We give
you huge portions of the freshest seafood, the juiciest
hamburgers and succulent chicken.

Love the place! We've been there many... many times. It's a nice bike ride from Edgewater, and a great place to relax when we get there! I'm interested to see what you guys will do for the winter when seating becomes too cold! Would like to see a few more healthy options such as plain rice, veggies, etc. We've had about everything on your menu. The only complaint is from the Veggie burger. It's very artificial/smoke tasting. There are many good ones out there, but I am sure the this is not one of you big sellers. Now we are working up a plan to go on your
dinner cruise! Thanks again,

I am the owner of Rinehart Video Productions in
Sarasota, and was in the area on 8-30-10 planning
to shoot a short travel video. This is also the
place for Party Boat Deep Sea Fishing on the Pastime
Princess. The last time I was here was in 2007,
when the restaurant wasn't here. A customer was
leaving the restaurant and I asked him how the food
was. He said good. Well I was starving so I decided
to take a chance and eat. Boy am I glad I did. The
grouper sandwich special with fries and cole slaw
was fantastic. The sandwich was loaded with fish
and super fresh. The view right on the edge of the
water was excellent. Lorna the general manager and
her staff are the nicest. I would highly recommend
this restaurant to everyone. This is the best place
to eat and be at. Do not miss stopping here

I'm a connoisseur of Fish Rubens. It's a rare Florida
speciality that is becoming increasingly popular.
I taste test it whenever it's on on the menu, and
sometimes when it's not. The dolphin view delighted
me with the best fish ruben to date. The bun is
freshly baked with care, and Dolphin view chooses
flounder as their fish. It's a perfect choice as
it is light and flaky, and mixes well with the cole
slaw. Cole slaw is traditional in Florida, Sauerkraut
is more of a northern fish ruben. At the Dolphin
View you have a choice. The sandwich is messy, as
it should be, and you will need plenty of napkins
to wipe your face and hands. It's sinfully filling
and well worth the $10 price. The Dolphin View is
aptly named, you are practically guaranteed to see
dolphins at this spot. It's easy to finish your
meal, grab another beer and enjoy the breeze. For
now, it's one of NSB's best kept secrets. Super
causal true Florida outdoor dining. I will be back
time and time again

Good food for a good price. No indoor seating, but tiki bar is covered. Definitely family friendly -- my kids loved watching the pelicans and gulls play. To -- try the grilled mahi!

The grouper wrap is unbeatable. I actually crave it and occasionally have to make my way over for lunch even tho I live 25 miles to the west! It is well worth the drive. The food never disappoints, the staff is very friendly and the view is why we live in Florida! I have also been out on their charter boat for sunset cruises that are breathtaking. I recommend DV to everyone!
