This place is our first choice when dining on the island. Great family atmosphere and excellent twist on the local seafood flavor. The Freddy's mix up plate is an excellent choice for a very large and diverse plate for not a lot of money. 2 can eat from one plate. Anything grilled or blackened is always a treat here. Don't...

We had seafood dinners and they were all excellent. I had almondy my husband had stuffed flounder and my son had fish with a crab cake and cheese sauce on top. We all loved our meals. The prices were reasonable around 15 to 23 dollars per meal.

The stuffed jalapeños were outstanding, two huge peppers, almost too much to finish. Enjoyed the shrimp gumbo.

They kinda saturate the area with more... More

We were here for a light lunch and I ordered the New England Clam Chowder bread bowl. It was the perfect size and the clam chowder was creamy and the clams were plentiful. The bread bowl was fresh and tasty. My husband ordered the shrimp bisque. It had plenty of shrimp and other ingredients. He recently had oral surgery so... More

Daddy's is my favorite restaurant on the Island. The raw oysters are fresh and tasty. They have many tasty meals available which are seasoned perfectly. Red beans and rice, oysters, fish, shrimp all are wonderful, A very favorite is the Cajun Mixup which consist of crawfish, shrimp, sausage, potatoes, and corn. A great finish to the meal is a bowl...

Great food. It's been a long time since I've had pan seared Red Snapper, but what I had here was awesome! Our server, Frankie Hernandez, did an excellent job! :-)
