Big Daddy’s is an old favorite that we return to time and time again. The hurricanes are always a good start.

We met the new chef from Baton Rouge on this visit. The oysters Tulane were excellent as was the gumbo, ribs and steaks.

I am very disappointed that the chef ruined this dish. Although plated artistically, the crab was extremely soggy which makes it chewy and inedible. I could tell it was originally crispy until sauces were added and it was put on top of a bed of grits. The entire plate of food was only slightly warm. I'm wondering if part of the problem was that it was sitting in the kitchen too long before being served. I love soft shell crab when cooked correctly and have only had it ruined like this one other time. I expected more from this restaurant where the food is usually excellent. I've been coming to Big Daddy's for many years and this was the worst meal I have ever had there. Had been a favorite restaurant until last night.

It was a last minute choice. Stopped for a few hours during happy hour on a tuesday. Bartender was wonderful. She knows how to run her bar, friendly and gave us great suggestions for apps. Ribs were tasty, alligator too. We will be back for dinner :)
