We chose the establishment because of the variety on the menu. When we arrived we were seated and greeted quickly. Drinks and an appetizer arrived in a timely manner but after that things went south. The main course took awhile to arrive and the food was over cooked. The waiter visited us one more... read more

My wife almost scared the 9 of us that had just sat down by reading the reviews on this site. But we were starving and stayed and hoped for best. Cheeseburger was as good as any restaurant, fish and chips pleased my scared wife, salads were good. Only issue we have is the price of the items, but there was... More

We at down and then I decided to read reviews. Glad I waited to read. Food was good. Grouper sandwich was good, hushpuppies best eaten, the trio cold salad was great as well as hamburgers. The fish and chips were good too. The batter was different than use to but still good. You got 5 pieces of fish, fries and... More

We have visited the Kure Beach area so many times through the years and have eaten at Big Daddy's a number of times. My wife and I ate there recently and was disappointed. The menu is quite different and the prices were outrageous. The menus are a little confusing. All we wanted was a normal fish/shrimp platter like other seafood... More

We ate outside and had prompt service. I had the oyster po boy sandwich with a side salad and onion rings. Other family members tried the burger and the shrimp siracha appetizer. It wasn't outstanding but there was nothing to complain about except the higher prices. You've got to expect the price thing though because you are at a vacation... More

We had not visited Big Daddys in many years but decided to give it a try learning of changes in management. While the menu still reflects the traditional Calibash style seafood, other options are available. I had the fish tacos, very good, and my wife had the Ahi tuna, which was excellent. Service was friendly and reasonably fast.

Service was fine but a good waiter doesn't make up for absolutely horrible food. You know you have made a mistake choosing a restaurant that can't even make good hush puppies or fries. On top of the horrible food the table was sticky, the restaurant stunk and the bathrooms had no air conditioning. My family will never make this mistake... More

The staff was very polite. We got seated and served quickly and the dinner was absolutely amazing! We got fried pickles and hush puppies for an appetizer and a steam pot for a main entrée and it was delicious. It was one of the best experiences I've had in a restaurant. I highly recommend it! It was our second choice... More

Service was slow and food was horrible. Kids got burgers didn't look over cooked but tasted burnt. The fries were so grease and mahi sandwich was like rubber. Bad bad bad. So mad I paid $72 for such crap.
