I enjoyed the best shrimp tacos I've ever eaten at Daddy's! My companions also enjoyed their shrimp po' boy and lobster bisque. Fresh seafood is also available to buy and take home to cook.

Great food, atmosphere and drinks here at Daddy's. I had the jambalaya which was really good, well seasoned and filled with seafood. The wine list is pretty good and the service was exceptional. The price is very good as well.

Wonderful seafood restaurant and seafood market. Wish I had hte means to bring back some of the beautiful seafood home but maybe next time. Food was excellent, service was very good and the prices were reasonable. Definitely would go again and recommend it highly for any newbies to the SPI area.

While it wouldn't register on my top lists of places to eat, my partner LOVED it and we are there 3 times during our vacation. Moderately priced (especially for the island; everything seemed FAR too expensive down there for the quality) and food would get a 6/10 from me. The drinks (strawberry pina colada) were AWESOME, however. I would give... More

When we first saw the sign for Daddys in Padre, we assume it was like a club, wouldn't have gone in. Then while looking for Crab Lags in Padre, Daddys comes up as having them by the pound. I then discovered what this place really was. The Crab was delicious. I had the combo with cajun seasoning, shrimp, potatoes and... More

First off, If you have tasted real Cajun, like New Orleans style, you will know this doesn't come close. The food is plain and bland. Second, My waitress was very rude. It seemed as if we were a bother to her every time we asked for more water, sauce, etc. She was too busy at the bar chatting away.
