I had read many reviews and each were about the same. My expectation was a typical beach bar with the usual scene, food etc. I was very happy to find a place with terrific food (love the sushi!) and a bar that was jammed packed. Put the 2 together and it was a perfect night. I will be back

Daddy O's is one of the first places (with the exception of Gables and Yellowfin) to raise the bar on restaurants and hotels on the island. Finally there is a real example for the old timers to look up to. Look, the food is not out of this world, but the presentation, ambiance and service make this place a fine... More

I have been visiting Daddy O's since their opening. My rub with them usually was with the service and wait staff. I visited this past Saturday night, June 21, and have to say the service was far better than in the past and was quite the improvement. The food was good and served in unison. All entrees were hot and... More

Two years ago, Daddy O on LBI was a great restaurant. Always busy, great food, great eclectic atmosphere. We even had a very large family party there in 2012, and the food was excellent! So, last week when our friends offered to bring us there for dinner, we were excited. When we arrived, the bar band was way too loud,... More

Food was horrible and overpriced. I ordered the linguine with scallops and shrimp. The scallops were dried up and very tiny and 3 baby shrimp and the dish.

Had a delightful evening last night at Daddy O. The Bronzino was out of this work. My mother enjoyed the filet and my sister loved the pork. Great atmosphere, reasonably priced and excellent service.
