Very good meal …the shrimp scampi was creamy garlicky and delicious and the steak tip noodle salad was awesome as well ….the grilled asparagus appetizer was delicious but stay away from the overcooked calamari though. The service was outstanding

Food and service were good, although portions a little small. Noisy when I thought it be more romantic. Ask for booth - the tables in middle were loud and close together.
Clam chowder was very good.

Food was sub par. For such a nice establishment seems they don’t have there best game on. Expensive for not so great food. Waitress was great. Food took very long to come out for 6 people. Not a big table . First time at LBI and only restaurant I visited. Sad it wasn’t a good experience

We've eaten there many times and is always consistently good. The sushi is great. The musles were pretty small, but could be how it goes, thai sauce was delicious. We had hoped to each out on the gravel courtyard, but a private event was out there. That's our favorite spot, but sshh, don't let everyone know! :) Great neighborhood place with a little upscale influence to feel special.

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. It was just very hard to see our food with a little red lights strung all over. Maybe if some white lights were mixed in it would be a little better.

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 !

The sushi appetizers, scallops and flounder piccata were very good. The seafood cobb salad was good but the crabmeat was a little fishy and the presentation wasn't great. But overall we had a very enjoyable meal. Pricey but that's to be expected 'down the shore.

This place was a surprise, hip setting, unique for a beach town, great and diverse menu selections. Enough options for any pallet. Oh did I mention everything we had was excellent. Get the lobster bisque... yes I woulda like a little more generous portion, but that’s because it was amazing. We will definitely being coming back and home to spend some more time on the roof top deck for before or after dinner drinks. Will definitely be coming back!

The food was amazing and we ordered 4 appetizers and three entrees . Everything was delicious . The drinks were ok and the service while polite did not come back and check on us for long periods of time a long time to get our drinks and were rushing us at the end of the night.

I would definitely go back the food was fantastic and may be just request to sit in another section
