Cajun and Seafood - good combination

Of the different seafood places on the island, this was our favorite. Try the crawfish appetizer for plenty of food.

We saw the menu for Daddy's in a brochure for South Padre Island and right away my husband wanted to try the shrimp creole. I tried the jambalaya and it was so good. I tried some of my husbands shrimp creole and it was really good too. We enjoyed the atmosphere of the restaurant and our waitress was great. They... More

This place is amazing! It's like Joes Crab Shack on steroids! This is a MUST eat if you visit the island! The prices are reasonable for the portions you receive. Top notch service, and a full bar. Very pleased with our server Erik.

This restaurant was my favorite on the island. My husband and I arrived late on a Tuesday evening. The special of the day was fresh Red Fish, cooked to your liking. We both ordered the special and had it blackened. It was served with roasted red potatoes and fresh zucchini. The portions were huge! So much that neither my husband... More

Daddy's is part of the Dirty Als family of restaurants on South Padre and just like the other restaurants the food here is amazing. I highly recommend you try this place if you haven't been. You're sure to be pleased with anything on the menu.

The food here was excellent! The staff was friendly and efficient! I do not know if they take reservations but if they do I would highly recommend making a reservation. We arrived somewhat early and didn't have to wait. However, when we left there were quite a number people waiting for a table. They do not pack a large number... More

Although we had great food throughout the island I must say that this was the best. In addition I thought the prices were very reasonable. I had shrimp alfredo and it was presented beautifully and yummy! Everyone in our party had great food. You will not be disappointed.

The food at Daddies is beyond delicious. They have the best shrimp on the island. The cajun food is to die for! We went there at least once a week. They have daily specials that are scrumptious. Their Almondy is the best!

This was our first time & the meals where split...the shrimp poboy was a disappointment for my husband but my blackened fish tacos made up for it...THEY WERE DELICIOUS!!!! The portion was large & was able to share, the price not bad and the service very good. Next time we'll go upstairs to the bar.
