We like to look up if the Triple-D has been where we are vacationing....and yes he was! We went to Fat Daddy's because of this. Very simple place (picnic table type seating and small area). Very casual (which we love). They do serve drinks and beer on tap. We ordered several things to try. The ribs were good (the naw... More

Some of the best BBQ I have eaten in a restaurant. Brisket was fantastic - chicken incredible - great ribs. Sides were excellent as well. Highly recommended.

Had the pleasure of going to Fat Daddy's Smokehouse tonight. Received a warm welcome when I arrived. The place is very small so you will want to get there early or you will have to wait, but they have tables for small groups and large groups with an area outside. I ordered the Brisket with coleslaw and cornbread. For the... More

This place amazing; food is great (not just the smoked meats, ribs, chicken) - but even the salads! It's priced average for Maui - but don't expect to pay less than $15 for anything. The service was excellent! NB - only opens at 5pm.

It was Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives that took me here. I was disappointed at the lack of customers service and the ribs were average. It wasn't just me that wasn't impressed, the 3 with me weren't all that impressed either. They tried theburnt ends and hot links.

Went for dinner. Waiter was a really nice guy from South Carolina who honestly answered our questions about the menu item quantities. I, of course, didn't listen and ordered a fat plate with chicken and brisket, corn bread and beans. Took almost the entire chicken home in a box. The brisket was perfect and the chicken was moist - 5... More

We enjoyed Fat Daddy's Smokehouse so much that we returned for a second dinner. The brisket, ribs, burnt ends and the chicken were all wonderful; portions are huge. Get there before 6 for dinner or you will face a wait for a table. The ambiance is casual, but the service was attentive. It was fun to see the diagrams of... More

Well maybe I was expecting more. This place is average despite the reviews. It is very expensive and small portions. I have had better. Service was great, but the food did not live up to my expectations. Some may like it but not my cup of tea.
