The seafood at Daddy's was excellent! The Shrimp Fondue was INCREDIBLE!!! Can't wait to go back! We had the combination platter with shrimp, fish and oysters and the quality was amazing! Our new favorite restaurant on the island!

I wasn't super impressed with the food. I got the shrimp and fish combo with a squash/zucchini medley. The shrimp seemed a bit over cooked. The women's bathroom was not clean and smelled awful.

Had the shrimp tacos and was very satisfied. Daddy's offers a wide variety of dishes on their menu. They also give generous portions at a reasonable price. Be sure to ask about the drink specials.

Last night on the island we found our favorite place. Great food,good variety, good price. Seafood all over the menu but they had great other choices. Cajun plates were authentic and we'll presented. This place wasn't on the water but go for the food.

I love shrimp. The shrimp was very good here. The service was slow but the food was wonderful. I will not hesitate to eat here again!! The only reason for 4 stars is the service. They weren't packed either or if they had been, I would have understood.

The chicken quesadilla was wonderful. The shrimp dinner was pretty fishy tasting. The service was good. It was not a fancy location, just a general restaurant. There was a large blue marlin hung on the wall, which was nice to see.
