Diner Reviews
  • "We both enjoyed our entrees, one was short rib and the other was salmon. Both cooked to perfection and the sauces and sides were appropriate for each meal. Decent wine list and prices."

  • "The reservation was for 7pm. We were promptly seated and the server was very pleasant and gave a short explanation of the restaurants history(just rebuilt from superstorm sandi). food was delivered promptly and was delicious. The only draw back from the evening was the server was the only server for the whole place. we had to wait on a few occasions for drinks. Overall experience was positive and the place looks beautiful. Thank you for a great evening."

  • "We were seated at a strange little table and asked to be moved to a spacious round booth that was much more romantic and cozy. Dinner was delicious, we shared oysters and each had the creamiest lobster bisque ever.Our entrees were a porkchop served over jalapeño polenta and scallops served with pecans and cauliflower. Both dinners were delicious and filling. The service was just ok, the waitress seemed to forget we were there, not bringing bread, not filling our water glasses and apologizing so much that it was beginning to get annoying. . All in all it was a great night, the food was delicious and beautifully presented. The new decor is nicely suited for the beach location."

  • "My wife and I had a wonderful dinner and enjoyed a few hours afterward at the bar at the totally remodeled Daddy 'O on LBI. The food was top quality starting with the squash soup and kale salad. The shrimp & risotto main course was excellent as was the blueberry buckle for dessert. The bar was busy with a good mix of all age groups present. A four piece band provided the entertainment. A great nite out."

  • "Great service; interesting menu; loud bar crowd sounds spilled over into the dining area. A little over-priced. Other restaurants on the island with equal or better food at better prices."

  • "My husband and I enjoyed happy hour at the very nice bar prior to eating in the dinning room. Husband had 4 beer flights and I had a house white wine ( very generous pour on the wine)The food was excellent although the salmon was a tad rare for our taste. Enjoyed our waitress who timed everything coming out of the kitchen perfectly. Would love to go back."

  • "What an amazing find! We went for our anniversary & so glad we did! The vibe is cozy and chill, food is unique and delicious and the service was absolutely outstanding! Thanks Matthew for the special anniversary touch with our dessert. Menu and drink prices were much LOWER than we expected as well:-))) We have already recommended this amazing restaurant to our friends & family and will make it one of our favorite spots. Thanks Daddy O!"

  • "We went to Daddy O's for lunch. We had the mac & cheese which was fantastic with fresh sliced plums, honest, and duck confit. The fish taco was on a soft tortilla with perfectly cooked fish and spicy aioli, excellent. Something happened to the broccoli rabe, shredded pork, swiss cheese sandwich on a hoagie roll. The broccoli rabe was so bitter it made the sandwich inedible, that plus the cheese was so over cooked it was hard. I have cooked broccoli rabe many times and it can be bitter if it is not cooked properly. It has to be tasted before serving. The hotel had damage from Sandy and it was remodeled beautifully. It is worth it just to go and have a drink at the bar. We have not given up on Daddy O, next time we will go there for dinner."

  • "Server was very prompt with menus and taking drink orders when we sat down. BUT THEN - We waited 50 mins after ordering our appetizers to get them. During that time our server never came by to apologize for the delay, to see if we needed any more drinks, bread or water etc. We finally got our appetizers. We then waited another 45 mins for our entrees, but not before we went to the manager to see if there was a problem. And, again, no server checking to see if we needed anything. We even had to ask to have the appetizer dishes cleared in the meantime. The manager did offer a round of drinks on the house. Never left a restaurant without a cup of coffee at the end of a meal but we just wanted to get out of there. It could've been nice"

  • "We started with cocktails at the rooftop bar, then for dinner downstairs. The service was great, food very good... After we went for a cocktail at the bar downstairs which was amazing. Vibrant and extremely energetic due to an extremely talented singer who actually had people dancing anywhere they could find room... Since there is no dance floor. Was a wonderful experience and would recommend!"

  • "Over the winter Daddy O was renovated and the menu was changed - shorter but better with a renewed focus on seafood (and a bit more expensive). We had lamb sliders (oddly flavorless but OK), “Horiatiki” House Salad (surprisingly delicious), the Burrata and Laquercia Proscuitto (tasty...but not as tasty as the ingredients would lead you to believe), and the Barnegat scallops (the scallops were spectacular and perfectly cooked, the white asparagus was lovely, but the quinoa was just OK and the yogurt and pomegranate reduction were sadly lacking). On the bar side, the cocktail selection is annoyingly skewed toward sweet drinks - unlike most Manhattan mixologists Daddy O's hasn't delved into the world of 'guy' drinks. That said the Waterme"

  • "Loved all the new stone work but booths and general set up still same. Extremely friendly staff. Waited some time for server to approach then waited yet again for water-- might be better for bus boys to serve water instead of server. Menu was different but only a few items to my liking. Food delivery quick but preparation bland and presentation nothing special. Chicken dish with mushrooms and spinach tasted like it had been sauted in low sodium chicken. Roth-- very bland. Husband had grouper which was extremely small piece of fish with three asparagus spears and a pile of extremely starchy mashed potatoes--again very bland but fish was cooked well. His appetizer of seared tuna was very good and a much better choice."
