Big daddy’s is right off the pier-good location! Food was good-the fish and chips is enormous! Our server was great! They seemed a little disorganized when trying to seat people though.

We enjoyed our lunch so much, that we returned during our ten day vacation. Excellent steamed shrimp, oysters and sarache shrimp. Very friendly service by Dominique. Great outdoor space to people watch and enjoy life.
