“Better than expected”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2014

I had read many reviews and each were about the same. My expectation was a typical beach bar with the usual scene, food etc. I was very happy to find a place with terrific food (love the sushi!) and a bar that was jammed packed. Put the 2 together and it was a perfect night. I will be back

“Raises the Bar”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2014

Daddy O's is one of the first places (with the exception of Gables and Yellowfin) to raise the bar on restaurants and hotels on the island. Finally there is a real example for the old timers to look up to. Look, the food is not out of this world, but the presentation, ambiance and service make this place a fine choice.

“Daddy O...Classy , Beautiful , Delicious”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2014

Over the years my wife and I have dined at many places on the island but we keep coming back to DaddyO's. This year we actually dined there 5 nights in a row . Even with all of the food choices on LBI we couldn't resist going back night after night .The menu choices were great as were the nightly specials .Any steak I ordered throughout the week was cooked perfectly...an all important factor for any steak lover. The seafood dishes were some of the best I have ever tasted . Also ,they have added a great new Sushi menu. The restaurant is beautifully decorated and we sat in a big comfortable booth each night .The General Manager, Andrew makes sure everything goes smoothly and is ever-present at the recepton desk and in the restaurant and bar area. On a scale from 1 to 10 our service each and every night was a solid 10 although Darlene was definitely a standout , a real doll who took great care of us .
If you are going to have a drink in the bar while waiting for your table ,be sure to ask for Libby, she makes a great drink and can pick your face out of the crowd if you are looking for that next drink...just a great bartender.
All in all ,I don't think you'd find a better , classier place to have a delicious ,memorable meal and a good drink on all of LBI.

“Trendiest Hotel On The Island”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2014

Very glad I got to stay at the Daddy O. It is a super fun and trendy hotel. It has a great rooftop bar as well as a restaurant/bar and patio bar. The rooms were spacious and the showers are amazing!

One request I would make is the hotel is to have a fridge in the room. Or if you go pack a cooler to keep drinks cold :)

The hotel is a one block walk from the beach and the hotel will provide you with beach badges. The staff was friendly and helpful. We also had a problem with the lock on our bathroom door and they fixed it very quickly, while we were at the beach. It was a great hotel and I would gladly stay there again.

Dinner was great from start to finish!!!! Been to the bar before but never ate here... Sushi, callimari app, filet mignon was melt in your mouth good, my girlfriends salmon was terrific!!!
And if you're getting dessert you better get their version of smores!! Totally amazing!! Go there and get the right stuff and READ the menu bc if it says baby shrimp you're gonna get baby shrimp!! Don't listen to these review with poor comments. It's a tad pricey but not much more than most places and the food is great!
