“Nice place for the family!”
Reviewed July 9, 2013

We arrived to find singing in the main dining room downstairs. Unfortunately, our first thought was, "karaoke?", but it was not. Their special guest singer was just that bad. We quickly asked for seats upstairs. (good thing my brother-n-law knew about those) While waiting, our kids enjoyed seeing the seafood display, very large alligator replica and live alligator tank.

Once upstairs, it was smooth sailing. Got a table in the corner, and had great service and great food. We picked some of the $5 appetizers (good price!! AND great food!!) We also chose the Seafood Botana which is a large platter of food meant to feed everyone. It was wonderful that you could mix and match your choice of fish, oysters, or shrimp and it's served with fries. IT WAS DELICIOUS!! Overall, we were so happy with our meal and experience.

“Pretty good”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

I think it really depends on what you order. Last year we went and I order The Almond which was awesome, my husband got the red beans and rice which was also good. This year we got crawfish which was great, but the fish tacos we ordered were not the best. The filling was great but the tortillas were super thin and not what we expected. However, like most places on the island the seafood is very fresh which is great. Thicker, fluffier tortillas would make them taste so much better. The dining downstairs is not the nicest but they also have an upstairs area that might be better. We'll be returning next year to try some of their other food.

“Just ok..”
Reviewed June 26, 2013

There were three of us at the table and two of the three meals were delicious. The fish tacos, not so much. They were huge but lacked flavor. The oysters Rockefeller were good and my husband even ordered some of the sauce to dip other parts of his meal in.

“Good food”
Reviewed June 22, 2013

We were recommended to this restaurant by the Travelodge. The food was great and the prices were very affordable. I had the Almondy which is a grilled fish with almond crust served with a cream sauce with potatoes and it was excellent. They were very busy but the food came out very quickly. Our Waitress could have been a little more friendly and helpful but I understand they were very busy and she had several tables. I can assure you I will be back for the Almondy again.

“Always a enjoyable return visit”
Reviewed June 20, 2013

We travel to SPI annually and make Daddy's a must stop on our vacation, usually more than once! Back for more wonderful tasting food and blackened red snapper. If you are brave enough order the whole snapper and have it grilled, pretty awesome. We have been going since the inception of this place and also it sister restaurant Pelican Station. This time we were treated with excellent waitress service by Ludy, she is one awesome gal! We will always ask for her when we return. Enjoy!
