I wanted to eat every meal here, it was that good. Our waitress was fun, attentive and quick. Drinks were the better than other restaurants.

Kona has a bit of a Daytona Beach strip-vibe and some of the restaurants were just a little too rowdy and heavy on the blender-drinks and big-a@@ seafood plates vibe. Foster's sits above the strip on the second floor, and the walk upstairs is worth...More

This place is great. Service was very efficient and the vibe was relaxed and fun. And they could accommodate my soy allergy. Appetizers try the Cajun ahi tuna. Wow. It was delicious. My husband had the chicken which apparently was featured on Guy Fieri’s show....More

Best bruschetta I’ve ever tryed, and the half ribs were Devine. Service was friendly, and the view amazing.

A little more gourmet than many of the other dining options. Inventive, fun and super tasty. Open air relaxed and casual atmosphere. A little more expensive than many of the surrounding options but well worth it.
