Not bad

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

Ate there twice this weekend, totally pleased. Wide selection of fresh food, great vegetarian menu (especially the Veggie Wrap). Lionel, Liz and the staff treat customers like family. It is apparent attitude and training is making the difference. We sat outside and enjoyed the atmosphere. Give Big Daddys a try, think you will like like it.

If you are an Oyster fan, you are in the right place. The Oyster Bucket is a great value and the Oysters Rockefeller are a tasty treat! The crab cakes are awesome too. I went to Big Daddy's last year under the old management and it was fine ... the new management have kicked it up a notch or two... More

I laughed as I saw the 2 reviewers to the left who left rave reviews after they ate at this dump on 4/23/15 under its new management. Let me tell you, a group of us (11) went to dine here last night while in town for the Kure Beach Street Festival and OMG!. We sent 5 different dishes back due... More

Brand new management! Excellent service, great food, and really good music on the deck. Try the shrimp trio on the apps. or the sear ed mahi. Good stuff

Don't let the old reviews guide your decision. This place has reopened and only the name remains the same. No more boring frozen breaded fried seafood. Lionel and Liz, with the aid of a terrific staff, have created a fresh local and delicious menu that will blow you away. This will quickly become the hardest restaurant to get into. The... More

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.

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
