DC to Daytona Beach

My son and I are hitting the road for a road trip  We'll be going from DC to Daytona and plan to stop around Florence for the night.
 
Looking for places to stop that will be fun for a relatively adventurous 4 year old.  
 
Especially looking for Daytona ideas as we'll be there for a few days.
 
Thanks!

    DON'T eat at Aunt Catfishs unless you like your food fried to death.
    for fish, try Boondocks on the river in Wilbur By the Sea.
    for burgers, Brickyard on International Speedway Blvd.
    for pizza, Pete's for Italian-NY style in the plaza at Beville & Nova Rds. Stavros for Greek style on Beach St. & Orange ave. in downtown Daytona.
    for wings,Brickyard or South Turn on Nova Rd.
    for steaks, Gene's Steakhouse on Int'l. Speedway Blvd.
    try to stay away from the chain places. there are so many great independent places that are way better.

    SkBob:  I would never substitute the reviews on Urbanspoon with actual experience of fellow Roadfooders, but the Urbanspoon and Tripadvisor reviews of Gene's Steakhouse are pretty horrendous.
     
    So - any idea why views on this place appear to be so polarized to the two extremes?

    I ask because we plan on being in the area in July and the wife likes a good steak.

    TJ Jackson if you are looking for a big, juicy, char-broiled burger or some char-grill-finished wings in a bar/pub atmosphere, I second the Brickyard recommendation.  I didn't mention it because the O.P. mentioned her 4-year old child, and I'm not sure if it's appropriate or not for them.
     
    Boy, you sure are right about some detailed slams of Gene's on those two websites.

    We'll be staying in Ormond Beach for a few days, and I have already selected http://www.mangosuncafean...unchBreakfastfood1.pdf and Dixie Crossroads (rock shrimp season starts in July, as I understand it?) for two meals, but I was looking for some backup plans.  The wife is always up for a good steak.
     
    Trying for as much Cuban and seafood as possible, albeit the wife and kids barely tolerate seafood and are already telling me Cuban food must be awful, despite the fact that they have never tried any.  In other words, the usual (Indian food must be awful, Thai food must be awful, Greek food must be awful, etc etc etc).

    Well, console yourself that Daytona is pretty far north for Cuban food.
     
    I was going to suggest Mike's Galley that Greggeats sent me to, but it's been three years and it appears they moved out of the place on the ocean to a strip mall.

    Oddly enough, I got some recommendations for Cuban food in St Augustine, which is even further North

    Can't say enough about Dixie Crossroads in Titusville. The rock shrimp are worth the whole trip to get there!

    Oh, and bookluvingbabe: no intent here to hijack your thread, although I did wander the topic a bit with the reference to St Augustine. 
     
    I will endeavor to stay on the Daytona beach area topic - Ormond Beach is just a little bit north of Daytona, while Dixie Crossroads in Titusville is just an hour south and has been strongly recommended by many Roadfooders

    I happen to like Gene's Steakhouse.   We have had less than the best service a couple of times  but that happens in every restaurant.  The steaks have always been great and they hav ea lovely relish  tray.  My son's best  friend and three of his buddies  have eaten there three years in a row and  are thrilled with the place  and  best  friend is very picky!

    let me ask you this, whose opinion would you listen to.  tripadvisor & urbanspoon that have been there once, or a locals opinion who lives here & eats there often?

    I already answered that question :-)
     
    I'm just trying to figure out why the reviews are so polarized - people either love the place or hate it, with very few seemingly in the middle ground

    I think that many of the complainers chose this place for a very  special meal  (anniversary,   holiday,  .......whatever)  and for the price, expect everything to be as what they thnk as  perfect.  One thing goes wrong and they  go out of their minds.  I am certain that most complainers  do out dine out enough at a real steakhouse to know how to politely  voice their complaints and havethem taken care of.
     
    I nearly died laughing at some of the remarks.........such as  the appearance of the place   and  calling it a  cafe.  I  really believe that  most of these complainers  only know    Outback  Steakhouse  and  this is how they want their dining  experience to be.

    you're right Greymo, mostly because Genes is the ONLY independent  steakhouse in Daytona.
    the only other one I consider going to is Longhorn.

    For Florence, I'm planning to hit up Red Bone Alley. (I think that is the name.)  It looked interesting, was highly ranked on Trip Advisor and got a strong local endorsement.

    That is a great call.  Our family has eaten there three times and were always happy.  The grandchildren loved it, and the food is great.  The shrimp and grits are really good........wish  I had some  now.   Your son will be delighted with the  whole place.

    Was that aimed at me? I've been a member since 2006. No wonder people post and dash if they are treated as interlopers for posting only occasionally.

    It is interesting that the lady asked for recommendations for Florence and got none. Our experience after many years of sometimes making the mistake of stopping in Florence is that there is absolutely nothing worth stopping for in that awful place.

    Our favorite stop in the Daytona area over this past week's trip was dinner at Stonewood Grille.  Yes, a chain, but a good (and pricey) one.
     
    Mango Sun in Ormond Beach for brunch was disappointing.  Very average/mediocre.
     
    One of our two favorite stops of the entire trip was entirely unplanned: the Java Joint in Flagler Beach for breakfast.  Tiny little place, best eggs benedict I have ever had. http://www.urbanspoon.com...va-Joint-Flagler-Beach
     
    The other excellent meal was at Dixie Crossroads in Titusville.  As a rule, I dont even like shrimp, but we both absolutely loved these broiled rock shrimp.  The clam chowder was also world class, and the corn fritters were an excellent substitute for the more ordinary bread service given elsewhere.  Just outstanding.
     
    One other good meal was had at the Columbia Restaurant in St Augustine.  The wife had her first cuban sandwich, and I had the El Combo de Cuba - Roast Pork, Boliche, platanos, Empanada de Picadillo, black beans and yellow rice. Everything on the plate was good to great.  Warning - parking in this area is highly problematic.  Park at the old spanish fort on the waterfront and walk the 2-3 blocks or so from there to the restaurant.

    I was at Snack Jack's many times when I used to read AP's down in Daytona.  It was always very good and always fun (and in the middle of nowhere right on the water.

    I have always gone to Park's seafood for 20 years and it was always very good. Tried the new location this past March and it was below average. Not sure if I will return.
     
    sk bob- I use to eat at a small local steak house called Webers if I recall. Is it still in business?

    Sorry I missed this since you were staying in Florence, I already have this thread:

    A lot of people like Red Bone Alley, but I think it is too greasy. Trulucks is not to far from Florence in Timmonsville, and that is a great roadfood place. Otherwise my favorite roadfood joints in this area are typically in Darlington, SC, but are only open during the day.

    I had no idea that Columbia had opened more locations.  I see that there are seven of them now.
