I am sorry to hear that your dining experience at Big Daddy's was not enjoyable. The reason we did not have some of our menu items available was due to an egg recall. Many of our menu items use eggs in their recipes. As for...More

Absolutely love this restaurant. Food was amazing! It's reasonably priced. The atmosphere was so fun and uplifting! The mermaid out front is really cute. Right in the center of everything. Nice place to stop after shopping or hanging out on the beach!

We enjoyed being able to sit outside. We were here for lunch. The service was very good. We were all happy with our food. I had the fish tacos, which were good. Hubby had the combination platter, which was a lot of food!

I liked this seafood restaurant. It was a bit pricey but what I had was the flounder and it was some of the best I have had at the beach. Great location in kure beach.

Loved the outside seating and food was wonderful. Lots of seafood but I opted for a cheeseburger. I like mine medium rare and it was perfectly cooked! Other family got seafood and they were all satisfied as well.

This is a nice looking and very clean restaurant, but the food is just okay. The servers were indifferent to us and most customers, often ignoring and taking too long. We went there twice because the area lacked places to eat. We were not impressed.
