First visit to Shrimp Daddy's and it was good. Casual "bar" atmosphere and not a lot of tables for the room size. Saturday night off season and there was a wait by 6:30. The broiled shrimp was seasoned just right and delicious! Lot's of horseradish in the sauce. Salad was fine and the side of fried mashed potato balls was... More

True Cajun! They have the best and freshest shrimp around this area. You feel like your in New Orleans when you walk in the place. Owner brings up fresh shrimp from LA and it is delicious. After your meal. They serve a special "secret" recipe treat!

A slice of Louisiana in the heart of the Ozarks. Great food, fun atmosphere and great service by our waitress Rebecca. The gumbo was true south Louisiana style and the red beans and rice had great flavor. Voodoo salad was excellent and the the deserts are all home made. We have a new place to bring some friends when they... More

So my father-in-law loves this place (he's not a local), extended family doesn't complain, but we're all from K.C. and my family thinks this food is awful. Supposedly it's bayou, Cajun food. I guess I just don't get the region. It's all canned, excess bottle seasonings, frozen shrimp and a couple of sticks of fried spaghetti. If you make it... More

Rumor has it...the owner drives to New Orleans and brings back fresh Golf Coast shrimp routinely. And it shows! Shrimp dinners and shrimp po-boys are amazing. The menu isn't huge and it's a little pricy. But this New Orleans inspired restaurant is a fun place with quality food.

We were looking for a place to have a beer and happened upon this amazing restaurant! The owner Theresa was very friendly and informative, regarding their menu and the freshness of the food and how they get it directly from NOLA. We will be back, one of the best Cajun foods we have eaten. ( aside from NOLA)

Food is ok on the pricey side for sandwiches. Service is good, the bad news is the restaurant is smokey. Won't go back

I drove right by this place. I was looking for it. Figured it was out of business. Glad I stopped and asked someone where it was located. So worth the stop. The recommended flat iron steak and home made crispy chips was awesome. The steak was cooked just right. Dean the owner served me himself. I recommend the house salad... More
