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

If you're missing clam chowder from the Northeast, this is the place to go! It was delicious! But I do wish they served it with cornbread like the real deal. Quiet atmosphere, cute red checkered tablecloths & lobster decor. Waitstaff was very friendly. Decent lunch prices. Parking less than a block away.

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

At times it felt special but then would fall a little short. It would look great on the menu but fall short. Nothing was bad just short of expectations. The cook may have been having a bad night at home as his attempts at something special would fall short of the goal.

You just can't get a lobster roll anywhere and this is the place to go! Tastes just like New England! Yummy! The service was a little slow for the lunch crowd, but it won't stop me from returning. I'm going to make this my #1 place for food when I'm in town. Clam chowder was excellent!

Daddy Jack's has a friendly crew to serve you and good food for you to enjoy. The menu is varied and the selections are prepared well and very tasty. You go to Daddy Jacks for the seafood, but if someone in your party is not a seafood affection ado, there are menu items for them also.
