Nice day and had lunch out on the covered deck. "Flounder Pounder" was, as the name suggests, a pound of flounder filets on a sandwich with fries and a drink. Almost too much (my eyes said, but stomach won out) but it was so good I easily finished. Laid back waterfront location with pleasant helpful staff.

Amazing views, very nice menu. Wait staff was friendly and helpful. Reason for a four star is very few waitsaff wore masks, including on duty manager.

Love it!
The food was great, the service was amazing and the view was perfect! We shared the mussels and although they were a bit overcooked they were still good. We also had a bowl of She Crab Soup which was delicious! We wanted the Prime Rib...but we ran out of room so we will go back before we leave town.More ... read more

Best trigger fish dishes we have ever eaten. Had sent servers home so did not have enough staff, but staff worked very hard and service was good.

All of our food was amazing. We went once for dinner on our vacation and loved it so much we stopped for lunch the day we left. The oysters were a huge hit and the best my party had ever had. The trigger fish and seafood au gratin were also fantastic.

Delicious food, and open air seating available. Drinks were good and pours were generous m, I think my boyfriend got a double pour in his cocktail.

We got the conch fritters which were light and tasty. Calamari was also good, not dripping in grease. The she-crab soup came with a shot of sherry and gave it a nice flavor. For ou

We visited the Ponce Inlet Lighthouse and Museum and were interested in a waterfront restaurant serving seafood. Down the Hatch was the perfect place.

A Hidden Treasure
After arriving here in Daytona Beach my wife and I asked a local person who lives here where to go for a great seafood dinner. They immediately replied Down the Hatch at Ponce Inlet. I admit it was a little hard to find but once...we did we were in for a wonderful experience. We were able to get a table with a water view and enjoy ... read more

I give Down the Hatch 5 stars for their prime rib sandwich. We love stopping here when we vacation in Daytona Beach. The prime rib sandwich isn't on the menu and they don't always have it but when they do it is amazing! I'm from the Midwest where we have great steaks and this sandwich really is done just perfectly, it can't be beat. ... read more

Went here on vacation a couple of weeks ago. I've been here before and i try to always visit when I'm in Daytona. Great food, friendly staff and they often have live music on the dock bar. It can get crowded and busy especially on Friday and Saturday nights so get there with extra time.
