Simply the best Cajun food on the Island. Gumbo rivals any in Nawlins. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable. Oh, and their BBQ is real tasty, as well. Get over here and get your grub on!

*Fantastic* food. Always something new on the menu. Creole Jambalaya is the best I have had. Their Bloody Mary is addictive. If I could go to one restaurant and one restaurant only, it's Big Daddy's. Can't recommend enough.

We have the unfair advantage or disadvantage of being originally from New Orleans, so while others may think the food here is great we were hopeful, but disappointed. We all ordered po-boys. If you can get a po-boy right then you'll have us as customers for life. There was way too much bread and fries and too little shrimp or... More

Staying with our cousins in the town, we visited for lunch one day and had a great meal. We shared appetisers, the oysters, chicken wings and gumbo were particularly good. The crayfish main in a spicy peanut sauce was good but sweet. Nice food and would recommend.

OMG.....where do I begin! The specialty drinks are ingenious, incredible & reasonably priced! I had an incredible mussels dish that was on the menu as an appetizer. I thought the server said it was 2 pounds of mussels but don't hold me to it! It came with 2 large pieces of bread to dip in the sauce & it was... More

We went for a Birthday Dinner. My son wanted BBQ and they had a good rating. The Gumbo was delicious, the dinners were massive. Ribs where the meat fell cleanly off the bone. Pork and waffles were tasty and the fried chicken was good. 3 of 4 of us came home with doggy bags. Only negatives were that our family... More

This place is not easy to find, but worth the time and effort. Doesn't look like much from the outside and the décor is pretty basic, but the food is really good. Lots of Cajun options -- food with real flavor and generous portions. The only negative, the service was not quite as attentive as it could have been, especially... More

We went with a bunch of family. Most of us got different things, so there was a bit of tasting. Service was pretty good - Vinny - checked in on us a few times. Food was OK. Nothing bad, and most of it good. Nothing amazing, but still an OK dinner overall. - Brisket was dry. - Only once sauce... More

This place is a hidden secret off of the sunrise highway. I found it by accident. The food is very good but it is no advertisement there's no sign there's no arrows the hours are fine but in reality how would anyone know about it? Billy does the mystical concept of being a restaurant. This place was very kind and... More
