Great restaurant. Only problem was they cancelled your service and did not honor the reservation as they did not have it. They told us it takes 30 days to cancel from your site. Not good service to Open Table's customers.

The appetizer of Crab fingers was outstanding. Nice location in downtown Fort Worth. We stayed at hotel downtown and we walked to the restaurant. A little expensive, but it was a special occasion.

Our server Kyle was outstanding. The guys each had a Filet with crab bernaise sauce. The girls each had the Tilapia with a creamy shrimp sauce. We enjoyed the shrimp cocktail and for dessert we had key lime pie. Everything was very delicious and very well plated. Overall, a very very good experience.

The food was fine; the atmosphere kitschy; the service adequate. This is a fine everyday dining restaurant, but not a special occasion restaurant. We were not disappointed, just acceptable.

Daddy Jacks was amazing as always. We went here for a lunch after my daughter's high school graduation. We had 21 in our group including 4 small children. The variety of food and the service was unbelievable. I have been dining here for years and get exactly what I expect every time -delicious food!! I love this place.

We celebrated Mother's Day at Daddy Jacks and won't make that mistake again! First off open table had this restaurant listed as having valet parking which it doesn't. We had to park several blocks away and walk not a problem for most of my family except for my father who has had a stroke! Secondly our reservations were for 2:15 and we didn't get seated until close to 3:00! Lastly there were a few items on the online menu that weren't on the in house menu and they don't have a kids menu. We'll never return for a special event. That being said the meal did end well in that once we were served the food was excellent!

We had reservations for 8 diners (including restless toddlers) for Mother's Day, and table was not ready until 50 minutes after our reservation time. Manager/hostess did end up giving 2 free appetizers and felt bad about it all, but still way too long to wait for not just our party, but many other groups who thought they had planned their way around a wait for Mother's Day lunch. The food was delicious and the server was cheery and did her best, but kitchen was obviously waaayyy behind as entees took quite awhile too. All in all, would like to go back when they are not in over their heads with reservations they couldn't honor in a timely fashion.

As always, this restaurant was amazing. We went there to celebrate my mom on Mother's Day and they made her feel so special- The owner had hired a photographer to take everyone's group photo, they developed it and you got the photo for free for Mother's Day! ❤️
I always get the baked shrimp stuffed with crab meat, which comes with a baked potato and veggies. Their salads, and lobster bisque are to die for!
Service is the perfect speed to enjoy the group that you are with. And the wait staff are very, very hospitable. I have been to Daddy Jacks several times, and every time it is just wonderful 👍🏼
I highly highly recommend this restaurant!

I had the Blackened Mahi Mahi with lemon cream sauce and pineapple relish. My sides were mushrooms and grilled veggies. While enjoying this meal, I told my husband that this is by far the best food Ive ever had. My husband's sirloin was so tender, you could cut it with a fork! Excellent meal!

Our group of 8 had a negative dining experience. Had reservations made with Open Table but the restaurant didn't record it. The mahi-mahi dinner special was available topped with either shrimp or crabmeat. Two of our party ordered the special with crab meat. When the third person ordered it, too, he was told that they didn't have any more available. The order was changed to another dish. When the servers brought our dinners to the table, they brought out three specials with crabmeat, one in error for another diner's meal. We questioned the server as to why we were originally told they only had two specials. when indeed they obviously had more? The server was flippant wither her response of "Oh well, that's what the kitchen told me." Not attempt to rectify the mistake was made- not even an apology. Otherwise food was average; service was slow, and the noise was loud. Wouldn't go back.

My husband and three kids joined me for a conference in Ft Worth and we were fortunate enough to stumble across this gem. Although they didn't carry a children's menu they were more than accommodating in helping us find a solution. We ordered two appetizers to share and they were more than we ever expected. The meal itself was an absolute delight from start to finish. The food was amazing however the exceptional service and attention that we were given made a great meal FABULOUS. We live 4 hours away but find ourselves in the Dallas/Ft Worth quite often and are already planning on visiting this establishment again. We hope they don't change because it was magical for us. I believe our servers name was Kevin, my whole family adored you. Thank you.

Was not very impressed with the fact that they do not serve liquor any longer. Felt that should have been advertised so I could have made a better informed decision.

We have dined here twice before. Each time my food was very good but my husband was disappointed with his selections. The bread that was served on this visit was cold and on the verge of becoming stale but not sure if it was just old or due to being cold where the texture was that of stale bread.

Our waitress was fairly knowledgable of my salad which was better than I expected. By that I mean it had a very nice helping of shrimp and crab, especially the crab.

Fish covered in sauce so you don't taste the fish is sad. Wine needs to be stored at the proper temperature and not at room temperature. Service was great, our waitress was kind and gracious.

My friends and I went to Daddy Jacks this past Friday night, we all had a great time. This was my first time there, and everything was excellent. We all tried the Lobster Bisque, which we loved. I had one of the specials, steak and shrimp, both were very good. I can't remember our waitress's name but she was very attentive and helpful. I definitely plan to return, we had a great start to our girls night at Daddy Jacks!
