Coming down with the family next week and looking for a recommendation for a party fishing boat to take my boys out on?

Also any good food places? (preferably on the cheaper side)

OUR DECK DOWN UNDER which is literally below the Dunlawton St. bridge (beach side).  You can often see the porpoises swimming past.  No table service.  Order at the window and find a picnic table.  Don't go at peak time!
OCEAN DECK.  It's more of a bar, but does have decent food.  And the kids can play on the beach, if they are that age, while you have a drink.
CARIBBEAN JACKS.  On the Halifax river (Intercoastal Waterway) on the mainland side.  Outside deck seating is on the water.  Often has live music in evenings/weekends.
CRABBY JOES which is on the Sunglow fishing pier in Daytona Beach Shores.  Make this a lunch visit.
HIDDEN TREASURE.  Food won't impress you as much as the location/ambience.  Two locations, but you probably want the one down in Ponce Inlet.  See the lighthouse while you are down there.
DON VITOS for italian on International Speedway right before Beach St.  Doesn't have the view of the ones listed above, but good food.
ZEN BISTRO on Magnolia has excellent Thai food.

I can't help with the fishing part, but here are a few local restaurants that have good food and aren't very expensive. The post above has some solid recommendations as well.

Jimmy Hula's
Colt's Pig Stand
Aunt Catfish's
Ritter's Frozen Custard
Huey Magoo's
First Watch
Cinnamon Tree Cafe
Bay Street Dawgs
Cherry Hill Ice Cream

If you plan on driving on the beach, just check the tides before you head over. There's an app called VOLUSIA BEACHES that has the tide schedules and will also tell you which beach ramps are open. The tides have been crazy lately so just be careful out there. Especially with little ones.
