A Lot Of Hype

Restaurant looks good. Decor is nice and it attracts an upscale crowd. Drinks are good. Food is mediocre at best and VERY pricey for what you are ordering. Pancakes for $15.00? Absurd. Rooftop bar is nice.

The food and ambiance were superb. I highly recommend it. It was a really nice dining adventure and more akin to a fine restaurant in a city than the typical LBI restaurants. It had a cool retro them inside and was suprisingly upscale while maintaining a casual vibe.

My wife and I have eaten at Daddy O every year since they opened. The atmosphere is fun and offers a pleasantly sophisticated dining experience (at least for LBI). That said, even though our server was fabulous the food and drink has dropped a notch this year. We ordered the summer spinach salad followed by the tuna tartare and then... More

The main bar has a very nice draught selection and my wife was impressed with the house champagne. We ordered the flatbread pizza which was tasty and the mac and cheese which was amazing. We also ate on the rooftop bar one night and also enjoyed the food. If you are in the area, Daddy O is a definite must,... More

Second time dining at Daddy O. We went last summer, and again last night. Had 7pm reservations. The place wasn't as packed as I thought it should be for a Saturday night in the middle of summer. We were seated right away. Our server started out strong, but then he lost his momentum. He also had back to back tables... More

Everyone they works there is very nice , offer good service, and are beautiful. You feel like there should be a reality show about Daddy-0s. Fun with a group but can be... More

Daddy O is a cool, hip place that is always a good time. However, the food is par at best. Prices are expensive, but so is every place in LBI. Service was great and the food came out quick. Overall, it was an average experience and I would recommend this place as a second or third option.

This place never disappoints! Second time eating dinner here and the menu is just excellent, from the drinks to the starters to the meals, the creations are excellent and the service is excellent. One thing which is a weird request, service is almost too fast. No sooner did we put our order in, the food was served. It almost was... More
