Fried frog legs, fried alligator and broiled crawfish are awesome. If you want to try alligator just ask because i didn't see it on the menu. Great food, would definitely go back.

You would think after a yearlong expensive remodel that Daddy's would have improved the restaurant......nope, still the same inside. Hard bench seats, a little noisy, but the food was great. All 3 of us loved what we ordered! My Whiskey Bay fish was fantastic, one of the best seafood dishes I have had anywhere. Service was great, prices very reasonable,... More

Back again....An off menu item is the best kept secret on the island....Red Beans and Rice with Andouille Sausage! This 2 meals on a plate is great...and comes with two superb Corn Muffins! Not needed....but good, is ordering extra Andouille! Service is friendly and usually swift. The bar is full..... Seafood is fine and everything can be blackened! Y'all come!!

There were 6 in our party and we were told to expect over an hour wait. Looking around, we didn't see that many people waiting for tables and saw that many diners were in their final stages of a meal. We chose to wait and sure enough, we were seated in less than 20 minutes. We thought we were luck... More

Daddy's was awesome! Great service! Our waiter, James, was very attentive. He made sure our drinks stayed full without us having to ask, that's ALWAYS a plus! The manager was attentive and mingled with all the customers the whole time we were there. The food was delicious, the boil had a really good flavor. The snow crab was cooked perfectly,... More

We brought our own catch to be prepared, but the food was excellent and the service top notch. I like their new location.
