We visited during the afternoon. It's a Cajun themed restaurant. There are 5 of us and 3 of the 5 enjoyed their plates. The other 2 (shrimp plate & a shrimp with oyster plate) weren't as impressive.

I ate at Daddy's with a group of 11. Service was prompt. Food was tasty, and it was affordable. There was no wait. One of the better restaurants I have ate at in SPI.

Had the blackened fish with shrimp creole. It was the best I've ever had! Tons to choose from the menu! Staff is on top it and they take great care of you! Also, reading the tshirts is hilarious! If you eat there you can use your receipt for 15% off a purchase at the surf shop across the street!

So good. Shrimp stuffed jalapeños. Delicious. They are huge. Perfect for two people. And then had shrimp estoufee. So good. Don't hesitate. We asked a local where to go. They said Daddy's. We tried it. We loved it! My bf had the Almondy. The sauce on it was to die for. Eat here now. Don't hesitate. It was delish. :)
