Had a lunch at Daddy's with 5 adults Ana a baby. They gave us a nice big area to accommodate the car seat, etc. The staff was pleasant and efficient. The atmosphere was fun and the decor fish/Cajun themed..so appropriate. We ordered the fish and chips for 3 of us and the chicken Alfredo and fries. The fries were over... More

Have visited twice and tried to like it but food has been mediocre both times. Shrimp overcooked each time. Bartender didn't know Pinot Noir from Chardonnay. It is hard to find good food on the island.

Plus 1/2 pound shrimp in cajun spicy sauce for $5 that we share as starter. Delicious. But strangely no mention of specials on menu - you have to ask the... More

$5 shrimp can't be beat! Not a full service bar but you can find something to drink! Service was good. Seated right away and attentive service.

Having enjoyed fried oysters at Daddy's and other places around SPI in previous years, I was fired up to enjoy some tonight, but when they arrived it was the sorriest collection of scraps I have EVER seen. Nothing like the plump tender oysters I had eaten before, but such pathetic little nubs I could not even tell if it was... More

Food was really good. Had a lot of variety. I love seafood, so I get it when I'm near the ocean. Was very fresh. Big plates, come hungry or be prepared to take home.
