The renovation/expansion of the building is complete and now Daddy's is back to it's old, brilliant self. Surely the have TOURIST SPOT prices but the quality and taste of their Cajun options and the service are just great.

The food was very good and we enjoyed it a lot. The service was also very good and the rest rooms were clean. I would recommend this place for seafood.

The live music played songs that everyone in the place got in to, service was good, food was good too. We will be back - too many other things on the menu we need to try.
