Takes me back to my childhood

Big Daddy's has really good food. The atmosphere is fun because it reminds me of visiting the beach as a child. It is not a trendy restaurant. It's a nice, clean place that is family oriented with good food. The prices are reasonable. It just seems to take you back in time.

$5 margueritas was the only bargain. Crab cakes and fish tacos ok, but pricey. Nice eating outside on the patio. Service a little slow.

I'll be short and sweet as I can be. Dinner last night with family was overpriced and a very average presentation of frozen seafood. Dated decor, musty and dark. Waitress was personable and efficient. Tab was far too high for the quality of the dinner we received. The kicker was the manager. As we were browsing the little gift shop... More

My husband & I ate dinner there. The restaurant was clean with beautiful, nautical, beachy decor. The waitress was very efficient and our food was delicious. We loved this restaurant & would definitely recommend it. The gift shop was great- I bought some paper back murder mystery books and some beautiful glass necklaces for gifts: they were on sale, which... More

The food was delicious. We decided to give seafood a rest for the day and selected Big Daddy's for a quick lunch. The chicken tenders were excellent! This was our first visit and we will return for dinner on our next visit. The owner was very cordial and we discovered that we shared the same home state. The décor was... More

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

Normally we wouldn't recommend a tourist place like this, but we went there and sat outside listening to the ocean lapping and ordered a salad and the chicken tenders. The tenders were homemade, breaded by hand with the best tasting crust ever...real chicken and very tasty. My husbands Caesar Salad was huge and he loved it. Beers were ice cold,... More
