Good food and great service

We enjoyed the entertainment and could have sat for more....Maybe he would have let me sing too...We ordered the Shrimp Stuffed Jalapeno and it was disappointing...the stuffing was delicious but the Shrimp in the dish was raw...(Management made certain our bill did not reflect the dish...and Juan, our waiter, was totally gracious all evening)... My wife had blackened fish with... More

I held a special luncheon for 40 people. It was a theme luncheon and the manager went out of his way to make sure everything was o.k. 40 people, ordering from the menu, separate checks, no tip added, and not one complaint about the service which was excellent or the food which everyone pronounced delicious. I'll be back soon with... More

The shrimp bisque soup was very good, but the red snapper and mahi mahi was just ok. Desserts were good and service was very good. Seasoning on the sides not very good.

Out for an evening during slow time on SPI, looking for an open restaurant and happened upon Daddy's. We are generally very suspicious of places self-labeled "Cajun", but gave it a try and were delighted. It happened to be $.50 oyster night, so that, and the boiled shrimp, was the main course. The vegetable sides were excellent, inexpensive, and more... More

Daddy's is our favorite sea food restaurant on the island. We used to go to the previous location a small casual layback restaurant. The new location is a beautiful upscale building with the same type of menu. Fish and shrimp with the Cajun spices are the best. Many people like the Cajun crawfish dishes but not my choice. Even the... More

Our Cajun dinner at Daddys was nothing special, but it was ok. I had shrimp creole, which was seasoned nicely, not spicy. The upstairs seating area was not open since it was off season. I think I would have enjoyed eating up there better than downstairs. It was a bit too noisy.
