Delicious!!

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.

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!

I ate here twice while staying on SPI. First time the experience was very good service and food- best crab stuffed jalepeno on spi. Second time service was terrible went to the restroom and returned to find my table cleared even though I had just finished my appetizer. My waitress spent time talking by bar instead refilling my soda. Just... More

Love it at Daddy's. The atmosphere is amazing! and the food is amazing! Can not wait to go back! We asked for blackened shrimp instead of fried and it was not a problem.

Stopped in b/c hubby wanted raw oysters and he definitely wasn't disappointed with either the fare or price. In fact the Oysters were 1/2 price and needless-to-say he ordered a double helping and wants to go back. I had the Lobster Bisque which was also very tasty.

Wasn't impressed with Daddy's when we went 2 years ago, but we returned on March 2nd this year and had a much better experience. Our waiter was friendlier, and the food we chose wasn't the fried stuff they do a lot. To start, I had a bowl of the shrimp bisque, and I have to say it was the best... More

The food is exceptional. I had the blackened Mahi Mahi with their 3 cheese cream sauce and it was the best meal we had on the island (and that's saying something because the food is excellent everywhere on the island). Excellent!
