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

The inside of the restaurant was a little of putting but the outside deck is gorgeous! We came for dinner and it was so nice to sit on the deck, by the road in the small, beach side town. The food we ordered was very flavorful, and cooked to perfection and the house wine was actually pretty good. I would... More

My husband and I ate at Big Daddy's on Friday evening despite poor reviews. It had rained all day due to Tropical Storm Hermine and some of the other restaurants were closed. I ordered fish and chips because I thought it would be safe. The fish had an odd color, taste, and odor. The sweet potato fries were covered in... More

Waiter was very slow and not oriented with what was going on. Food was horrible and very expensive. We asked three times for a refill before it was brought to the table.
