A good place to dine outdoors at Sundance, without the loud craziness

I like eating outdoors here because the street is a little off the beaten path and therefore a bit quieter than some of the downtown craziness. The food was terrific and our server didn't forget about us just because we were outside. My fish was very good. The sides fresh and tasty, if a bit... read more

Waited over an hour for our dinner. When we asked the owner/chef about our order, he yelled at the waitress to get our food. The food was just ok...nothing special. When we left to walk Sundance Square, the owner/chef was outside. He asked how we liked his food after our wait. ...no apologies for the wait... When we said it... More

The food was amazing and both of my kids loved what they ordered. Large portions, excellent temperature, the bread at the table was addicting. The waitress that helped us was professional, friendly and when we asked for her help deciding what to order, she gave suggestions. We all left wanting more but couldn't eat another bit. Very clean and cozy.

The service was great. The waitress was very attentive and friendly. The crab claw appetizer was very good and the broth over the bread was tasty. I ordered the stuffed shrimp. The butter sauce was good but the crabmeat stuffing was no stuffing than crab. I ended up pushing it to the side. The baked potato was lukewarm.

This will make the second time in a row where we have received terrible service and food. My wife called to make reservations a day ahead and specifically asked if they were serving crab claws, our favorite thing there, she was told yes, when we arrived and ordered them, we were told they were out. The lobster tails were like... More

Teriffic food, fair pricing, and and great service in the center of Ft Worth at Sundance Square. When we were finished eating, our server walked us over to Scat Jazz club so we couldn't get lost.

This place is about what you would expect from an inland seafood restaurant. The food and service were just okay. Atmosphere was just okay too. Wish I could do better but it was just okay for me. I ordered the lobster special for supper. They are sticklers about substitutions and requested an up-charge to substitute a house salad for a... More

The Steak and Shrimp that my boyfriend ordered (and that I was lucky enough to taste) was wonderful! The steak was tender and perfectly seasoned; the shrimp was very good, as well. The Grilled Chicken with a Cream sauce and capers was, also, very delicious. The baked potatoes that accompanied our entrees were big, and came with a generous amount... More

Tasty food, enjoyable atmosphere and a great staff combine to make a superb restaurant. Maine lobster cooked to perfection. Fish and shrimp entrees, steaks, clam chowder and more. Indoor and outdoor seating. Desserts to top off your meal. A very nice place to dine.

I was in Ft. Worth in January and looked for restaurants near my hotel. When I saw that a place called Daddy Jacks was around the corner and claimed to have good lobster rolls, so I tried it. The roll was not what one gets in New England (different style of bread) but the contents were spot on. Lobster, celery,... More
