Not gonna be on the must list.

I tend to agree with Beachbound331 about this restaurant. We ate there because it was just across the street from the public beach access, but the food was just okay. I understand being a worker with too much to do and feeling stressed, but the service was slow and not very friendly. There are some... read more

Horrible food, service was slow and our server disappeared the whole time. Drinks were refilled incorrectly and the atmosphere was terrible. DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME HERE. I was lured in by all the ads and billboards to finally give it a try. Wasted $70 bucks and could have had a better meal at McDonalds.

We visited Big Daddy's in Kure Beach while recently in the area on business. I believe we had eaten there years ago. We hit the timing perfectly as it was around 6pm and the dinner rush had not yet started. The restaurant was big and nicely decorated. It was clean and the staff were friendly and ready to meet any... 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

Very run of the mill. Nothing special. In need of a serious update, Robert Irving could help Big Daddys!

Our group spent over thirty minutes waiting for our server to take our order after placing a drink order. The thirty minutes gave us an opportunity to research other places in the area for lunch with better service reviews and better food (admittedly, we did not order food as the prices were high for what it was).

Food was fantastic! We ate here 20 plus years ago and it was as good this trip as it was then. Service was fast and friendly. Seating on the outdoor patio was nice. We will come back.

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.
