Stopped by for their excellent gumbo and had a full lunch. Lots of moms celebrating their day so was busier than expected. That being said food was great, service not rushed, and was a great experience.

Thank you for your lovely note Jeff, it made our day here at Daddy's. We so appreciate you taking the time to share your experience. By the way, our gumbo is my favorite soup too!

Seated immediately. The service was great. We ate upstairs at night. The restaurant is decorated with soft lighting creating a nice, peaceful atmosphere. The crawfish etouffe was good. They had a large dance hall with kareoke. Overall, it was an enjoyable meal.

Visited Daddy's for the first time last year but didn't end up writing a review, 2nd visit and certainly worth reviewing. Good food at a reasonable price with very hearty portions. House band was decent, and not overly loud so a dinner conversation wasn't interrupted....More

I had the Veracruz, which was blackened fish with peppers and tomatoes. Hubby had a hamburger, he is not a fish person. Too bad! Both were excellent. Service was decent.
