Same Old Big Daddy's

I don't know why I come back to this place. The food is so so and the service is OK. Nostalgia brings me back because we love Kure Beach and we love the idea of Big Daddy's. While I probably will return, I don't recommend it. The best thing I can say about the place is the grand children like... read more

After a disastrous 2 hour wait at a nearby restaurant we ended up leaving because we STILL had no food, we went in search of a restaurant still open and found Big Daddy's. We were greeted by the outdoor bartender and quickly seated by friendly staff even though it was 10:00 pm. Our waitress was very friendly and accommodating. After... More

We arrived in Kure Beach last Friday and couldn't wait to get some fresh seafood. I had eaten at Big Daddy's a few years back and it was awesome, but this time the food was awful! I had the grilled shrimp, baked potato, and the vegetable. The vegetable taste like they came out of frozen TV dinner. The shrimp didn't... More

I'm shocked by all the bad reviews. We had a really good experience. We had a party of 3 adults and 2 kids. Everyone enjoyed their food and our server was friendly. We didn't wait long to be seated or for our food. My husband really enjoyed the chicken Alfredo with andouille sausage and the fish tacos I had were... More

Based on other reviews, the food and service were better than expected. It is pricey, especially considering you're not on the beach. We had no problem getting a table on a Friday evening. My wife an I split a salad and a fresh fish entree. Both were good - nothing amazing, but solid and no issues. Service was friendly and... More

Today we tried Big Daddy's for lunch. We found this restaurant to be a mixed bag of pros and cons, but for the most part we were disappointed. The location is awesome and the outdoor seating area is nice. It was surprising that the restaurant wasn't crowded this time of year. The food was good. A couple of people on... More

Hadn't eaten here in many years. Saw the reviews but was curious and wanted seafood. Service was slow. Prices were a bit higher then expected. The food varied From average to horrible. We left a lot of uneaten food, not worth taking it home for later. Well, now we know and will never eat there again, there are too many... More

My wife and I have come to Carolina Beach for the past 9 years and Big Daddy's has been a traditional place for us to go for dinner. I don't know if they are under new management but we will never go again. Used to have a salad bar....no salad bar anymore. Menu has changed and not for the better.... More

The price was... absurd for what we were fed. We ordered a fish sandwich, two tuna sandwiches and a buffalo wrap which was their special. To call the food terrible is akin to saying the ocean is wet, or perhaps that the sun is hot. The food actually caused one member of our party to excuse themselves to the bathroom... More

Service was great, the food was sub par - the prices were ridiculous, and the women's bathroom was hot, dirty, and no trash can. I would recommend it but our waiter was great.
