Their crawfish wasn't that great at all, but their frog legs were life. The staff was friendly and had nice customer service. The atmosphere of the restaurant was nice as well.

Our party of six went to Daddy's for lunch while we visited the island and after our pirate ship adventure. Our waiter was not very good, he seemed irritated by us.

Wow what a treat. Sea bass encrusted with almonds covered with a cheese sauce (I like to ask for this on the side). Served with red potatoes. Excellent! They have daily specials for about $9. This is my favorite. Great service and clean restaurant.

Had a lunch at Daddy's with 5 adults Ana a baby. They gave us a nice big area to accommodate the car seat, etc. The staff was pleasant and efficient. The atmosphere was fun and the decor fish/Cajun themed..so appropriate. We ordered the fish and chips for 3 of us and the chicken Alfredo and fries. The fries were over... More

Have visited twice and tried to like it but food has been mediocre both times. Shrimp overcooked each time. Bartender didn't know Pinot Noir from Chardonnay. It is hard to find good food on the island.
