We had the grilled Flounder (garlic mashed pots, cole slaw) and the fried shrimp/scallop combo (garlic mashed pots, green beans) ---recommended by our landlady for our 3 night trip....
$27 for the 2 dinners and we had beers and sodas with that....nice and I would recommend easily...
Favorite Dish: fried shrimp
Right on the waterway, JB's is a great place to watch the sunset, or to watch the dolphins that play around in the marsh. I have enjoyed the oyster bisque and the seafood chowder, and they have Wild Turkey 101, my poison of choice. The views of the marsh are beautiful and the food is good and fresh. They were playing Bob Marley last trip which I love!
Live music on weekends.
updated September 2012----same great vibe---saw some dolphins playing in the water nearby when we sat down for dinner----had a great sampler feast with rock shrimp, crabs, fish and corn-----W had the stuffed flounder and both were great!
You can rent kayaks for $15 an hour from the trailer next door---tandems $20 an hour.
Favorite Dish: Oyster Bisque---fresh and delicious!
I had hoped we could come for lunch, but when we were there in January 2005, this restaurant was open only for dinner. And the time we tried to come by boat, they didn't have room for us to dock at the marina.

scott's bluewater grill is one of those pleasant surprises you stumble upon when traveling. it is located in the food lion shopping center on atlantic ave. sadly this excellent restaurant is now closed.
The big attraction is the bar, and the beachy feel, plus the really nice deck overlooking the intercoastal waterway and mangrove forest. Laid-back and friendly.
Favorite Dish: The bar is the big attraction, but PJ's also serves meals (just ok). What they do right is brick oven pizza and local musicians after 8:00. The pizzas are really delish with that crispy, smoky brick-oven crust. And the drinks are good and generous. It's a pretty good place to bring kids if you get there earlier in the evening.
A very cozy patio with a fireplace and comfy chairs makes for a nice spot to sip a glass of wine and much some olives. Not on the beach, but makes up for it in ambience.
Favorite Dish: Really, the garlic bread with roasted garlic cloves and olive oil, plus a big salad would do it for me over any of the main courses. I could eat my weight! The biggest attraction beyond that would be that wonderful patio with the yummy appetizers and a bottle of wine, with my sweetie to talk to.
A breezy, beachy, more contemporary version of Red Lobster. Good for families.
Favorite Dish: With so many good local places to choose from, I have a hard time saying what my favorite would be at this location of a national chain. Shrimp maybe? They do have early bird specials for the retired crowd! That's important.
Family run by a brother and sister, but intimate enough for a cozy date. This is old-floridian food with a Cuban flair. Great waitstaff, just very laid back but also sophisticated. Not a large space, so some tables outside on the sidewalk (though nothing nice to see.) Our favorite place in NSB! I pout if we don't have a meal there. Not really a kid-friendly place, but excellent for adults.
Favorite Dish: Love the fresh catch with Yucca crust and black beans, and the fried plantains. The house salad with manchego cheese, the black bean soup, and anything seafood is terrific.
j.b.'s fish camp is an interesting place to visit in new smyrna beach. located on the mosquito lagoon it is a great place to drink beer and watch the sun set. j.b.'s specializes in blue crab dinners. really more of a bar than a restaurant a fun place to visit when in new smyrna beach.
Favorite Dish: blue crab cakes
the breakers is located next to the flagler street beach ramp in north central new smyrna beach. they offer casual fare such as pizza, sandwiches, and burgers. the breakers overlooks the beach and it is a great place to have a burger and a beer.
norwood's was established in 1946 and is a new smyrna beach institution. one of new smyrna's better restaurants. good selection of steak and seafood dishes. a very good restaurant to visit when in new smyrna beach.
If you are looking for ambience, then you are out of luck. This is not the reason to eat at Bostons Seafood House. They have the best fried shrimp and onion rings on Earth! Their fish and lobster is always fresh and prepared to perfection. We have been enjoying their seafood for over 20 years!
Favorite Dish: Fried shrimp the best in the state of Florida! Batter is light and the onion rings are a must try as well.
We walked over to this restaurant when we were at the municipal marina in 2000. There is also a dock near the Intercoastal, but I don't know the depth or what draft of boat can use it.
All the food is fried. Service is quick and friendly. Food can be taken out or eaten on the deck outside.
There is a big sign on the deck with reasons not to feed the birds, but the birds obviously ARE fed.
After the 2000 trip down the ICW we didn't stop at New Smyrna again. The hurricanes of 2004 completely stripped away the municipal docks. But when I stood on the waterfront where the marina had been, I could still see the blue Sea Harvest building across the harbor.
Favorite Dish: Fried chicken, shrimp, fish or seafood - either in a sandwich or in a basket with french fries and cole slaw. I had a good shrimp sandwich for lunch, and Bob had a seafood dinner in the evening.
The restaurant is kind of campy, pretty much like everything else in Florida. But you get to have blackened fish sandwich, fish and chips, and fried alligator by the sea, so it's alright in my book. They've also got this ingenious invention of putting a plastic cup of ice into the beer pitcher to keep it cold, otherwise the beer will become watered down when the ice melts (they melt fast!)
Favorite Dish: I had the fried alligator poppers. It was good, but ask for tartar sauce instead of cocktail sauce next time.
