Big daddys was my favorite seafood restaurant to go to in Wilmington about 3years ago. I visited this weekend and I was so disappointed! It took forever to get our food and when we got it it didn't taste good at all. The only thing that was ok was the hush puppies other then that I wasted my money big... More

As there are only a few other options in this area, close to the beach, wd can say that this place isn't bad! They have a nice patio to eat outside but the service takes forever... The food is ok, not everything look really fresh but the portions are big and the fries pretty good!

Nice atmosphere and food was very good. Had to wait for someone to seat us no one was at the station when we arrived and it was longer than it should be. Other workers just walked by us while standing there and when asked we got a attitude from one of the servers.

It was a long wait for service, which was rough with young kids. The portions were huge and we wish we would have known that prior. While the fish was good, but not exceptional. One child had chicken tenders, and they were charred and nearly inedible. Overall, not bad, but I would try someplace else next time.

Ran in for a quick bite for lunch after church and before visiting the Aquarium. I got a grilled grouper special. There was a large portion of grouper and it was good. Everything else was average. The server was nice. The restaurant is in need of updating to the point that some areas are bordering being gross.

Ate here years ago and remember being very impressed with my meals here. This time, not so much. We went with a big party and we all split appetizers which were really good, especially the crab dip and wings. There are also a great variety of beers, including a local beer on draft. This was great! But my entree, Mahi... More

Seated quickly. We sat and waited and waited and.... waiter appeared. Didn't know the specials, took 10+ minutes to get beverages. 25 minutes to get... More

Greeted and seated right away! Our server Ed knew the menu and recommended the best drink-must have Seaside Sunrise, the Prime Rib was spot on and the soft shelled crab rivaled the best Maryland ever produced! Overall will return! Delicious! Oh and ask for ED one the best servers I have had in a long time especially lacking on this... More
