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 Decor is outdated, old, windowless, carpeted, with hundredth layer of blue paint.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

I was skeptical taking the entire family especially since my family owns a restaurant. The food was really good and my parents went back for a second time during their stay and once again enjoyed it.

Food was ok, but overpriced. Service was ok, but not spectacular. Outside seating area looked nice (but it was raining), but that was probably the best thing it had going for it.

Big Daddy's is a local favorite, and deservingly so because the seafood there is delicious. The shrimp, in particular, are my favorite. The prices are a bit steep in comparison to the same quality and portions at other local institutions.

We've been to Kure Beach on several occasions but had never tried Big Daddy's until this year. We were impressed with the food and the service...and sorry we waited til this year to try it. Excellent seafood and a great view from the outside dining section. The service was beyond reproach. We'll make it a regular stop now.
