This restaurant is good for fried seafood at the beach. It is lightly breaded (called Calabash style). The food is good. The shrimp were larger than I like (I had to cut them in half). The cole slaw and french fries were good as were the hushpuppies. The prices a are a little higher than other seafood restaurants in the... More

We had brunch here on a Saturday and it was pretty good. The "Bloody Mary Bar" was lackluster but it had most of what one needed for a decent Bloody Mary. Next time I'd just leave it up to the bartender. I had a breakfast burrito, which was pretty good (certainly big enough) but it could have come out a... More

One of our FAVORITE restaurants at Kure Beach. Burgers are good BUT the SPINACH SALAD is OUTSTANDING! Staff is very friendly and more than willing to personalize your orders.

We didn't start out to go to Big Daddy's but it ended up being the perfect restaurant for us! We had attempted 4 other restaurants in area with no luck, had even been seated at restaurant across street from Big Daddy's but the staff never acknowledged that we were there so we got up and left. At Big Daddy's staff... More

Al fresco seating is narrow and close to the traffic which means noisy and smelly. The menu is straight forward on seafood and the preparation did not show much refinement. Staying at Wilmington, NC, we did not regard it worth the detour.

Wonderful foods to choose from and convenient for those staying at Kure Beach or Fort Fisher areas. Steak cooked just right...great sides like red mashed potatoes and fried onion petals.

We have been here several times, but this is the worst. Not very busy ,but it took 30 mins to get a waitress. Then I got a drink while my husband waited for his beer. It's 15 mins and counting for his beer. It just got here
