Dining in New Smyrna Beach is never boring.  From the famous spicy shrimp at JB’s Fish Camp to the most tantalizing steak and lobster, dining in New Smyrna Beach is the highlight of everyone’s vacation. Fresher seafood just cannot be found. There are many quaint restaurants and cozy bars located along Flagler Avenue and even more to explore on historic, downtown Canal Street. Everything from fast food drive-ins to elegant dining awaits you. For those late-night snackers, several bars and restaurants along Flagler Avenue serve food late and offer live entertainment.  For the romantics or the star-gazers, nothing compares to the patio at The Garlic.


The Garlic offers one of the most beautiful settings for a delightful and memorable dining experience.  Walk down a vine-covered arbor, surrounded by a walled Olde World fireplace, and enter their garden lush with lit trees and flowering greenery.  The Garlic offers great food, live music, fine wine, Italian beer, and specialty martinis.  Known for its Italian, garlic-themed dishes The Garlic is a must when visiting the New Smyrna Beach area.  Visit their website.
