My wife and I were in the mood for some fresh oysters with dinner. There is no other place in the city that offers fresh seafood like Daddy/Kona Jacks. Absolutely divine cuisine , and the ambiance is perfect for nice and relaxing dinner. Service was excellent , and the cocktails are exceptional. My father took me to Daddy Jacks when I was a kid , and till this day , it does not disappoint. Whether it be a small business meeting or a wedding anniversary dinner with your loved one , Daddy Jacks will never disappoint.

All the food was good as usual. However, we had to keep asking for an extra fork or additional sauce that never showed. This is highly unusual as service is normally great. They were very busy that night so....

We went to Daddy Jack’s to celebrate our son’s closing on his 1st home. Daddy Jack’s is our staple for a casual fun evening. The menu is so varied that everyone can find something they love - steak sandwich, Shrimp Fradiablo, crunchy grouper is high on many people’s list, and lots more options. Drinks were a delicious way to start and even the house wines are good. Soup or salad, and a vegetable or potato are included with dinners so it’s great to not have everything ala carte. Food was great- service was very good and we enjoyed the chance to toast a new homeowner! We’ll be back!

We enjoyed lunch outside during an unseasonably warm November day. Plenty of social-distancing with the outdoor table arrangement. I had a hot brown, which I haven't had since the one I'd had in Louisville, Kentucky. We shared some California rolls as an appetizer. Delicious!

You can always depend on good food & attentive service. Great value, too. A tad chilly last Friday night.

It was couples night and we decided to go to Daddy Jacks. It had been years since I have been there and everything we ordered was delicious and hot. My husband ordered deep fried clam strips which I never eat but tried it and they were terrific. Service was excellent from the waitress to buss people. Highly recommend.

It was a beautiful summer's evening, so to be able to sit outside was ideal.
Daddy Jack's quality is always great. The server was a bit scattered, but very well-intentioned. Great neighborhood gem we'd hate to lose.

Not a big fan of the Hot Brown, made with beer cheese, but the food at Daddy Jack's and Kona Jack's are always consistently good. Our waitress was exceptional as well.

We eat here about once a monthly and their food and service is always consistent. My husband did try the cashew chicken linguini this time and he said it was excellent! The smothered chicken was wonderful as usual.

Service was outstanding as well.

Marty was great. Had to wait for an outside table. He set chairs up for us & took our drink orders. Made us very comfortable while waiting.
Great dinner. Will be back soon.

Daddy Jack's reminds me of a restaurant in an old mob movie with the panelling, lights and tables. It has such great ambience! Love the fireplace in the winter. Food is excellent every time. Smothered chicken is a favorite. When ordering the 4 cheese pasta keep in mind that it has blue cheese that is not listed on the menu.
