This restaurant is wonderful! I sat on the outside deck while having a cocktail and enjoying the sun and ocean breeze. I decided to go inside to order my dinner and was greeted with such a friendly staff and the atmosphere was relaxing. The food was delicious and the service wonderful. It was such a great day, I decided after dinner to walk around the side of the restaurant, take off my shoes and walk on the beach. A Perfect Evening at Barnacles!
Favorite Dish: Everything was Great!
We were at the Casements. Billy's Tap Room and Grill which was on the other side of the MacDonald House was Ormond Beach's oldest restaurant - it was established in 1822 by the man who used to run the tea room at the hotel across the street. Since by this time it was 12:40, we walked over to Billy's for lunch.
Favorite Dish: Bob had an egg salad sandwich and I had a crabcake which was extremely good with actual lump crabmeat and not a lot of mishmash in it. I ordered creme brulee for dessert, but they were out of it, so Bob and I shared a brownie fudge sundae. The bill was $19.65 before the tip
We walked across A1A to the IHOP for dinner. The harried waitress said she could seat us but she was by herself and there was a soccer team having dinner so it might be awhile before we got served. There was one cook, and two busboys and that was all to wait on the whole place.
Eventually, I had 2 eggs, 2 pieces of bacon hash browns and 2 pieces of toast and Bob had French toast. We had hot tea, and the bill was $15.40. He left the exact change on the register because otherwise we'd have been there all night.
Favorite Dish: We often go to our local IHOP and I like about it that
a) We can get breakfast at dinner if we feel like it
b) They have a senior's menu with less food.

Favorite Dish: We went to dinner at the Olive Garden. I had stuffed shells with shrimp and Bob had lasagna. It was $26.42.
This restaurant has a beautiful view of the Ocean! I sat on the outside deck, looking out on to the Ocean, while having a cocktail and enjoying the sun and ocean breeze. I ordered my meal and was pleasantly surprised by with the quality of food for the price. The staff was so friendly and the atmosphere was relaxing. The food was delicious and the service wonderful. It was a great experience, after my meal I took off my shoes and walked on the beach to watch the sunset. A Perfect Evening at The Beach Bucket!
Favorite Dish: The Drinks and Food were all great!
On June 28, 2007. The service we had was terrible. My husband and I order
the all you can eat crab legs and 3 kids meals for the children. It took 1 hour
for our first plate of crabs legs to come to the table. My husbands plate of crabs
legs were still frozen, not cold, they were frozen. The kids meals came a half a
hour later. And then our second plate of crabs legs were cold. We waiting another
45 minutes for our 3rd plate of crab legs. By this time it was past the closing
time and we could tell the wait staff wanted us out. When we received the bill
I ask the waiter doesn't he think we deserve an discount on our bill for what
we had went through and he said he would speak to the manager. I said I would like
to speak to the manager and he/she never came out and he just told me we get a
free desert to take home, which was some kind of brownie and it was burnt. I have
never had service like this and it was uncall for.
For dinner one night, I didn't want to go to a chain, so I rejected Outback Steakhouse, Burger King, Olive Garden, Bennigans, Pizza Hut, Subway, Quiznos, Ruby Tuesday, and McDonalds. I actually had in mind to go to Shell's and that's where we went.
The restaurant may not exist anymore, or maybe the Ormond Beach one has closed.
Favorite Dish: They seated us and gave us two waiters (although we never saw the girl after the drinks order). We got hot tea. The waiter asked us if we wanted bread, and we said - why do you ask, is it extra. He said no but that with all the low carb diets sometimes people didn't want bread. The bread was a small thin loaf, but he didn't bring a knife to cut it and I had to use my regular knife.
Bob had a half pound of fried scallops (with fries and cole slaw for $8.99) which he said were the smallest he had ever seen, and I had the coconut shrimp and grilled chicken combo for $12.99. This came with baby carrots and broccoli (but the broccoli ends were all brown) and home fries. I couldn't eat the chicken and brought it home. The bill including tip was $32.44
More like a Red Lobster, but higher priced and less quantity of food. People were rude and un-attentive.
