This restaurant location next to and connected to the IPic Theatre should be a big plus, especially when you get $5 off your meal with your VIP movie ticket. I've eaten here a few times before and while it has been okay, this time was abysmal. I ordered the special, fried chicken, and maybe the first warning was when the... More

Claim it is a barbeque place, but its average at best. Slow service from friendly people. Embedded in the Bayshore Mall. Plenty of parking. Booths and tables. Restaurant is appx 4 years old. Food is OK, but if you're a barbeque afficinado, you will likely be disappointed.

Reason for a 1 star review is because it was rather high prices and it was absolutely awful. The steak smelled atrocious. I ordered it medium and it came rare. Not medium rare. Rare. It smelled so awful like it was rotten. The collard greens were cold and sitting in a pool of water. Literally. The waitress was fine. Just... More

Ate the BBQ rib dinner. Not good at all and I won't ever eat at the restaurant again. The pricing is really high.

We are visiting from Texas and wanted to try the barbecue. The restaurant was nice. The service was good. We loved the layout and the connection to iPic. The platter was not so good. My husband and oldest daughter liked the chicken. The brisket and pulled pork were very dry. VERY! The rib tips were just ok. My little girls... More

I am an employee at Bayshore and we were given coupons for different stores and restaurants in the mall. One of those coupons just so happen to be for Big Daddy's. I get there (on my lunch break) and ask the bartender if I could place my order at the bar. I told her what I wanted and handed her... More

I took my fiancé and son to IPIC for a movie yesterday. We were excited that we were able to order food from Big Daddy's Brew and 'Que and bring it in the theatre. To our dismay the food was disgusting.. We ordered 2 orders of the beef brisket, and we also ordered 1 order of rib tips. The beef... More

It's located inside Bayshore by the IPic. Country decor down to the chicken wire by the booths facing the mall. Good beer menu and specialty drinks. Best bargain (plus lots of food to enjoy later) are the combo entrees.

Great BBQ and southern fried catfish. The portions are large and everything is great. The staff is always professional. A little surprised by the very short jeans the female waitresses wear, but I'm not complaining. If they know you're going to a movie, they'll guide you and get your food out.
