Default The Garlic..restaurant New Smyrna Beach

Been living in Central Florida for over 30 years and never heard of this restaurant. Had friends take us there last night and was blown away!

Very cool place set inside a grove of viney trees. Food and service were fantastic! Pretty crowded so expect wait times.

Garlic is a great restaurant. There are a number of others in NSB as well. Very economically priced. NSB is somewhat hidden jewel on the East Coast of Florida

It really is an awesome setting. Very cool vibe and good food. It's much bigger than it looks from the outside too. And the meatball? Yup!

merks tavern for wings and frankensauce and it is a local dive bar (not that divey but has pool tables and ciggy smell)

Don’t leave Breakers off the list. They always make a kick ass drink and it’s awesome to sit at the windows, eat, drink and watch the kids play

Lol at frozen gold, I have never met a local that goes there. And it’s yellow dog eats, which is a chain, and not a good one. Local pearl is a gem, if Danny is there, he’s a great guy. Bakers table is very good as well. Wake up cafe is great. 3rd wave, manzanos is great. Sasaki is amazing sushi, little hole in the wall but crazy good.

and outriggers is flat out terrible. Also, don’t discount the subs from mon delice. What is bagels? Bagel world? If so yes

Only if you consider two locations owned by the same guy and with an original scratch menu a "chain". Their menu is largely sandwich and pulled pork derived but it is very good for what it is. Agree with everything else you have said. I would add Yummy Asian Noodle to the list as really great Chinese (since the new owners).
