Two nights, had dinner at Big Daddy's. Have seen reviews that pan this place, but we found the service excellent, food hot & delicious, & prices comparable to others here. Crab legs are always the deal-breaker for me: many places over-cook them. BD's were excellent. :-)

Food was pretty good but it was pricey. Same dishes were much cheaper and tastier at other establishments on the island. Servers were extremely nice and helpful. Dined here mainly because it is a family tradition but we will make new traditions next year. Agree with some of the other reviews in that it badly needs updated and cleaned up,... More

We sat outside & the environment & view was great. Our server was attentive & friendly without being too overbearing. The food was warm & well seasoned, but the over all atmosphere of the restaurant was screaming for an update. Things could be much different if there was a reimagined menu more relevant to today's food trends (people don't pay... More

We rented a house in Carolina Beach - and this was the best food we had. Patio was great & service was nice. Only went inside to use the restrooms - which were clean and updated.

Overpriced($20+ per person) for frozen, processed battered and fried food. Hush puppies were barely warm and undercooked as were the French fries. Decor is outdated, old, windowless, carpeted, with hundredth layer of blue paint. We wanted to sit outside but were told it was only for tables of 4 or less. Not a place we'd go back to.

This restaurant feels like it hasn't been updated since the 80s. My mahi fish tacos were good but spicy; kids wouldn't eat their meals and husband wasn't that impressed either. Best bonus of this restaurant? ...the gift shop. Lots of unique gifts. Otherwise, I wouldn't recommend stopping in this restaurant. Not my favorite...just average.

Ate here our first night in town, no wait on a Sat was great! Sat inside, a little dated decor, but our service and meal was excellent. Family of 6 all enjoyed our meals and I have to say the Shrimp and Grits were delicious! So much so, that the little bit I took home for leftovers nearly caused a... More

Me and my fiancé have always loved this place. Great food. Extremely quick service... But extremely over priced. We only allow ourselves to dine here once during the week we stay at kure beach. Wish we could go more but the prices just don't allow us. Amazing seafood and costumer service though

The food isn't bad, but the reason I only gave it an average is that they water down their alcoholic beverages and their prices for the food you get are high. So, you don't feel like you really got a good deal after eating here. They can rectify that by either REALLY making the food unforgettable, or they should lower... More
