Best Casual Restaurants to Eat in New Smyrna Beach
If you just docked your boat and your stomach is talking, Merk’s Bar and Grill is conveniently located right next door. Merk’s is home of the famous Frankenstein Wings, mile high deli and – if you came for a big bite – the “grande” wet burrito and the king size quesadillas!
Outrigger’s is right on the water, across the Street at 200 Boatyard Street. They have everything from calamari to a drunken mermaid, which is a grilled fish filet with their signature slaw, provolone and remoulade. They also offer an array of tiki tacos with brisket, pulled pork, shrimp and more, as well as a baked macaroni and cheese that’s made with chicken or shrimp, curly pasta and smoked sausage beer cheese.
If you’re looking for waterfront dining, you’ve come to the right place! Go beachside to Ocean Breeze for a second floor ocean view and tiki bar. They have great margaritas and sangria, and their firecracker shrimp appetizer is sure to light your fire! If you want a great happy hour, the Crow’s Nest Bar and Grille is right next door with half price appetizers and dollar off drinks from four to seven. Then there’s casual dining Flagler Avenue style at Breaker’s, with close up ocean views to die for and burgers as big as your head…juicy bacon and blue cheese, four cheese and inferno for those who like it hot.
If it’s seafood you crave, grab a beer and order fresh steamed seafood by the pound at JB’s Fish Camp or visit Ocean’s Seafood where you order at the counter and take a seat to enjoy an affordable menu including shrimp baskets, crab cakes and more. There are even delicious onion rings and key lime pie, as well as a fresh seafood take-out counter
Or go pub-style at McKenna’s which rocks a sports bar vibe. They have chowders, nachos, chili, potato skins and wings, burgers out the wahzoo, French dip, po’ boys, cheesesteaks and slow cooked baby back ribs that fall off the bone. Seriously, they have almost anything. Thinking shrimp? Think wraps with shrimp, Mediterranean salad with shrimp, scampi with shrimp and steamed shrimp.
