Stopped in for a late lunch and sat outside. Our food was okay. Not bad. Not good. Ended up requesting a lot of extra sauces to give my grilled fish some flavor. Crab cake was also pretty bland. Prices are reasonable. Service was friendly.

We had a great family dinner on the patio overlooking the main strip and across from the pier. Food was excellent, server was great and price was significantly cheaper than restaurant we tried the night before and the food wasn't as good there. Definitely a good choice!

Over priced, we had a fly in our drink and they could have cared less and never apologized. Service was slow and food was average but priced high.

Atmosphere was dingy and unfriendly, the hostess seemed drugged. Waitress started out ok with orders, but forgot to check on us after we got our food. My friend had to go to kitchen as there was no wait staff in dining room. Said there were several sitting around. Rib eye steak was cold, stringy, tough and tasteless. Salad dressing was... More

Reserved a table. Staff do a great job considering the poor operation they have to contend with. Ordered draft beer. 5 minutes later told all kegs were not operating. Ordered bottles of Bud Light. When requesting another round told no cold Buds available. Should have left at that stage. Now the food. The crab dip was cream cheese with dill... More

We made the mistake of eating outside and wonder why nobody else was eating outside it was because of all the flies on our food and the staff really didn't seem to care

Waitress was great but the food was by far my least favorite of my culinary experience during my week long trip. Regular fries were extremely salty and the sweet potato fries were the consistency of mashed potatoes. The lobster poboy consisted of teeny tiny scraps of lobster mixed in with overcooked cheese. Maybe I caught them on a bad day,... More

Big Daddy's is very close to the beach and there was lots of parking, which always helps. I visited in June for lunch during the week. I found the food to be delicious and very generous portions. The menu is very extensive and there really should be something for everyone. The margarita was also excellent!

Food was not that great and you should not sit outside because of the flies. Wings were dry. Burger was decent. Dont drive here for this place.
