This place has very good redfish and also fried shrimp. My blackened redfish with potatoes and zucchini was delicious. My wife and child enjoyed their fried shrimp. Happy hour prices were good with $3 margaritas and well drinks.

We have been to Daddy's a few times and it is good food. I wouldn't say it is anything special, but we obviously keep going back. I usually drink water with my meals and this time around, I couldn't. The water tasted like sewer water (not that I know what sewer water tastes like - lol), but you get the... More

We had lunch here as several locals told us that we must eat try this place. They were right! This place is great! The restaurant has a very nice decor and atmosphere. I ordered their Almondy that is one of their Cajun specials. Mando was our server and really nice and helpful. Food here was awesome and the portions were... More

We had just arrived on the island, it was almost 9pm & we were hungry. The staff was friendly. My boyfriend had a fried seafood combo basket. He said it was good. His beer was cold. I am not a big seafood eater. I try to eat very healthy. I created my own vegetable plate with 3 options including seasoned... More

The restaurant was not very big but it is being expanded. It was little crowded even though it was off season but we didn't have to wait for a table. I had the cajun fish plate, it was seasoned well and the servings were plentiful. We ate here and at Dirty Al's, both were good but Dirty Al's, for me,... More

Really enjoyed this resturant. The food was really good. Our last dinner on the island was at this restaurant. We had 16 people total, waiter was on top of everything we needed. Best seafood restaurant on the island.

The menu had a great selection of different Cajun dishes and the prices were fair. The service we had was excellent. My boyfriend even purchased a bottle of the Cajun seasonings that they use.

This food was expensive, over priced and over cooked. The waitress did not speak English but acted like she did. I requested not hot, and no peppers several times. When the food finally came, it seemed like the spice jar kid was removed and poured over everything. Even the potatoes and zucchini. They still didn't care. Stay away from this... More
