Our previous experience was not good, but Management went above and beyond to apologize and make it up to us. We enjoyed the steak salad, truffle fries and special pasta dish for lunch. We had the bread pudding which was delicious. Our waitress was nice and attentive. Nice atmosphere and good cocktails.

I really enjoyed by dinner at Daddy O - the staff remembered it was my birthday and wished me Happy Birthday and sat me at a lovely banquet. Food was very good.

I dined at DaddyO's on Saturday night with 6 girlfriends. We were well attended to my our waitress and I ordered the special (short-rib ragout) which was outstanding. It was a very enjoyable experience and I would recommend DaddyOs to others.

First time at Daddy O. Food was good & server was friendly enough. Would have liked to know that there were specials for the evening. Only knew because overheard another waitress share with her party. Limited menu

Our waitress Kat was great. Very energetic and accommodating.
Food is consistently good but menu is now almost a complete copy of Tucker’s Tavern which is disappointing. Like both places but preferred the variety which is now almost completely gone.

We said it was a birthday and nothing was done; in addition the sever was seated with multiple tables at the same time so we were left to our own for a while without refills or boxes or the check.

Way too loud, freezing cold, but the soup was delicious. Some food there is great, others not so much. Great server though. Will probably not eat here again.

We are outside which was really fun. All in all the food was very tasty; however, we ordered the filet which was the most expensive item and ordered it medium rare but it came out closer to medium well. Normally we just deal with it but given the cost and the taste we sent it back and it came back once again more medium to medium well. We noticed both times the filet had a slight cut on the top almost as if someone was checking the temperature which caused it to overbook before it was brought to us. We did eat the second steak as our daughter was hungry but we did advise the server so they could speak to the chef. I was surprised and disappointed we didn’t receive some type of discount because of this but we will give it another try since everyone else was delicious. Great happy hour prices also every day from 4-7pm.

Have been going to daddy-o year after year. I love the ambiance of the restaurant and everyone was very nice. We started off with the calamari, which was very tasty. It was a different version of calamari because it was served with green and red tomatoes. I ordered the flounder with orzo for my entree and my boyfriend ordered the fra-diablo. Both entrees were very delicious and we enjoyed our time there. We did order drinks based on the waitress’ recommendation, and the drink tasted like cough syrup, so we had to send it back. The waitress was very accommodating and understanding when we sent them back.

Food was good, not great, but good. Beautiful place, service was prompt and efficient. I just didn’t think $200 for 5 people, before tip, for pretty basic food with no alcohol or dessert was worth it

We went to Daddy O's to celebrate my daughters birthday. We were 6 adults, 1 toddler and 1 infant. The restaurant accommodated our seating needs to perfection already having an extra chair at the table to put the car seat on as well as a high chair. We had plenty of room around our table to stand and hold the baby if necessary. Everyone enjoyed their food (Crab cakes, tacos, flounder, scallops) and the portions were enough for us. We each had dessert also which was decadent. (Flourless chocolate cake, crème Brule, ice cream). Prices are equivalent to most restaurants on LBI. I would definitely go again.

Food was small in portions,and pricey.
Service and food was slow
Ordered a Ceviche and they must of been running out of it because portion was very small. Also had the Cobb Salad and the shrimp and crab was warm. My wife had a Buratta salad without Burratta, again if they give you a spoon of Buratta that was a lot. Pricey for what we ate not worth the try.
Very noisy

Was here prior and ordered similarly off the menu. Crab cakes were a little over done, cheeseburger was tasty. We started with the lobster bisque, which was excellent. Waitress was attentive and knowledgeable. Good ambiance. The closer you sit to the bar, the noisier it is. Has a rooftop bar, but was too hot with no breeze for us.

Great service from Nate. He was super friendly, knew a ton about the menu and was very patient with our gluten/soy/dairy free family member. The place had a nice upscale city vibe to it - that we appreciated getting dressed up for and treating ourselves while on vacation! A recommend for those with a big group down in LBI!

We were fortunate to get a table way in the back of the dining room but it was still quite difficult to converse with our friends because of the noise level. Our waitress was wonderful, well trained and attentive. However I was not happy with my selection of fish and chips. The chips were so very salty that I had to get an order unseasoned. The portion of fish was very small and very heavily breaded. The slaw was outstanding and I wish there was a bigger portion with the order. The others in our party seemed to enjoy their selections. The dinner salad was the most generous and most well received.
