We are a family of 5 one of which is only 1 so he doesn't have much to say. There is a lot of food per plate including on the kids meals. My fiancés food smelled the best and he said it tasted good. I ordered the deep fried shrimp and fries and one of my children got the same... More

Waiter was very slow and not oriented with what was going on. Food was horrible and very expensive. We asked three times for a refill before it was brought to the table.

Big Daddy's has been a part of every Carolina Beach trip since I was a young girl and it has seemed to have lost its appeal through the years. The food is good, but over priced for what you get. My son and I ordered a lobster pasta that we assumed for the price would be enough for 2, we... More

We visited this restaurant while on a drive along the North Carolina coast. There is indoor and outdoor seating. We both ordered the fish and chips and they were good, but not great. The decor is very fishing village basic decor. The service was very good but the food a bit pricey.

The food was horrible, I ordered a dinner salad which was $5.00 and had one tomato and some lettuce. Would never go back nor would I recommend this place. We were a family of 4 and left hungry with a $100.00 tab. Would never return!

We have been going to big daddy's for the last 10 years. Unfortunately it has been going downhill lately. Fried shrimp was over cooked. Tarter sauce was nothing but mayonnaise. Salsa was not fit to eat. Crab legs tasted off with barnacles all over them. Did not serve lemons or a small crab fork and had to ask for moist... More

First trip to Big Daddy's in twenty years. They have just recently updated their menu to include some healthier options. One person had the grilled shrimp platter. They were great and we really liked the Brussel sprout hash--very tasty! My fish tacos and salad were great and my son ordered a traditional fried flounder plate that he enjoyed. We liked... More

Highly advertised but falls short on delivery! Overpriced food with not much on the menu except fried Myrtle Beach type of standard seafood. Decor is ratyher cheap as well. Considering the prices of the meals, I expected better.

Service was outstanding. Our food was great. The waiter did an excellent job. I would recommend this restaurant to families or couples. We ordered the BQ ribs and fish dinners.

Service was very good. Food was very good. Outside seating and entertainment was very good. Only thing annoying were the smokers who approached the entrance smoking then putting their cigarettes out right at the entrance. Smoke blowing to us was a little annoying but considering the apprehension from previous reviews I was pleasantly surprised.

Thank Ivan T
