Drinks, service, and food were excellent. The host, a manager, and our server all checked on us to see that everything was to our liking, enough to get the idea across that they care, but not enough to be annoying. I had the soup of the day, which was a potato bisque. It was really delicious, perfect consistency and temperature - a little pricy at $11 - but that's LBI dining for you. We both had the Wild Salmon and it was fabulous. The flavors in the vegetable-citrus salad, watercress pesto, and port reduction blended wonderfully with the salmon and the creamer potatoes. We finished off with the creme brûlée and sorbet. The sorbet was perfect, but the creme brûlée was the low point of the meal. It was very dense and not creamy at all, and it was served at room temperature instead of slightly warm, as if it were sitting for a while before being served. This was the only reason I didn't give the food 5 stars but not enough to say that we would not come back. We drive 30 minutes to come here, and it is always very good. The staff, including food runners, servers, etc. were all hustling really fast and efficient and they were friendly and accommodating.

Husband & I enjoyed a delicious dinner here last night. We wanted to talk so ate in the main dining room as there was too much noise and loud live music and singing in the bar area & surrounding tables. We shared one of their mussel pots in white wine sauce with garlic bread (only one small piece of garlic bread - it would be nice if they gave you more) and we each had the flounder piccata entree which I’ve had before and it’s excellent especially when you want something lighter. They will be open through the winter and we definitely will go back.

The entrees -- mussels curry and flounder piccata were perfect. The lobster bisque had great flavor but was a bit too whipped and fluffy for my preference. The place probably has a fun, swanky vibe in-season, but during the off season, when we visited, the '80s music felt old and depressing. Go for the food.

Had a very nice dinner on the patio outside. We were bummed out because there was no coconut for the tiki tini’s. Service was excellent! Food is always good but pricey.

The menu was terrible ! I came to enjoy good food . Too much Chinese food. If I wanted that I would have gone to a Chinese restaurant . Only 12 entrees. One chicken dish , about 3 seafood , 4 Chinese themed dishes . Even the shrimp scampi was listed as hot . Maybe this will appeal to some , but not to me. I was very, very disappointed .
I also had made a reservation 2 days beforehand and was originally given a small table right by the kitchen when all the booths were free. When I questioned this , I was told they get a rush at 7 pm so they can’t give a booth at 6 pm ? Huh ???? I’ve been going to Daddy OS for a very long time , first time I was given a lousy table and not a booth. Very, disappointed . The service was very very good though. Great waitress !
