We have been to Boondocks many times and it is one of our first stops when we get in town. Usually service is awesome but today, not so much. Had to flag down a server to place order. 45 minutes and still waiting. We will see.

This is one of the best places I have ever eaten in my entire life. The food is over the top. The service is awesome as well. I did have to wait for a while, but it was well worth it. I live in Raleigh, NC and we drive to Daytona twice a year and this is one of the... More

This little place on the Halifax River was a surprise. We were looking looking for another restaurant on the water since Inlet Harbour restaurant was closed for repair after Hurricane Matthew. A large number of friendly locals frequent the place. The first time we went we sat at the bar overlooking the Marina and I enjoyed one of my all... More

This bare bones seafood place is the best. The service is down to earth and friendly. The surroundings have zero pretense and the food is to die for. Our friends that live here brought us and we love it so much had to return the next night to have more.

We were stuck on the way to Key West, so decided to go to this restaurant. Food was very good and fresh. All the dishes we ordered were pretty tasty. We will go again if come across.

Casual water front dinning. No need to dress up. Food has always been good and affordable. Give it a try, you won't be disappointed.

At first glance you see an older looking "building" with heavy plastic covering for sides. It doesn't look like much but if you're like me, those are the types of places to go to, and I was right. Went with my wife and 1 yo. The staffing was something I haven't seen before where you don't get just one waiter/waitress.... More

Boondocks is temporarily closed this week for annual cleaning and maintenance. We will reopen on Friday, Sept 30, 2016.

Boondocks is a casual, fun restaurant with fresh seafood, great salads and soups, and all homemade sauces. We also offer chicken sandwiches and tenders, 1/2 lb. burgers, hotdogs, and other kid-friendly meals. From raw and steamed oysters to spicy steamed shrimp, Zuppa di clams and our amazing garlic bread, mussels marinara and our delicious oysters Rockefeller, we will fill you up and make you smile! Come watch the sunset over the marina and relax. Just another day in paradise!!!
