I had dinner here with a friend who was reluctant to return as a result of a few poor meals. We decided to give it another try and we're sorry we did. The food was poor at best. I ordered shrimp scampi and it arrived with tiny baby shrimp, the tasteless kind. They said this was their response to... read more

Well it's been years since I have stepped foot into Daddy O and the changes with the decor from the original opening looked amazing! Much more "comfortable" than the original. They have a huge bar and offer plenty of room for dining as well as private parties. We decided to stop in since online it showed a very good happy... More

The food and service at the restaurant were fine during a recent visit. The rooftop bar, however, needs improvement on customer service. On a particularly beautiful Saturday afternoon they were not prepared for the number of people wanting to enjoy the sun. I saw people leaving because it was taking way too long to get their drinks and they had... More

Passed by on our first day on LBI - remembered the name from previous research here on TA, so we stopped in. It was a quiet Monday night around 7pm - wasn't very busy, so we were seated immediately after the hostess let us peruse the menus for the dining & bar area. We chose the bar area as the... More

my shrimp scampi had only 3 large shrimp and odd meat flavor. I also had a lettuce wedge salad that was quite tasty. The consensus from the four of use who dined were that the portions were too small for the price that was charged.

We stayed in the hotel, so decided to try the restaurant for dinner. Very glad we did. Menu had just enough variety, so you know everything is fresh. Would definately visit again.

We were staying across the street, so thought walking to dinner would be good deal. Concierge and wait staff were first rate. The menu is somewhat limited (8 entrees if my memory works tonight), but the food we had was first quality. My wife had the Scottish Salmon, I had the pork tenderloin and both went down quite well.

A group of us went here after work for apps and drinks. There were about 18 of us so they gave us a small room off the bar. Our waitress, Nicole was so nice and very attentive. No one ever had to go to the bar for a drink. The best service ever, she kept a large group happy and... More

We ended our week long vacation at LBI with a terrific dinner at Daddy O's. We were a party of 9 including 2 children. Everyone's meal was served perfectly. The fried calamari were crispy on the outside and tender on the inside. The sushi was excellent, fresh and very tasty. Our server was very attentive and didn't miss a beat.... More
