Had reservations with my family and ate there in the height of a snow storm and the place was packed. Our party of 11 shared many of the entrees ordered and they were all delicious. It was a taste of New Orleans with the jambalaya freshly prepared as was the venison, chicken and waffles and the great selection of appetizers.

Chicken and ribs are just succulent - full of flavor! Chill environment, great live music (Johnny Mac Band the evening we visited), lots of fun.

I LOVE this restaurant!!! I love the quirky decor and the helpful, friendly staff. They have authentic New Orleans beer and the bartender mixes up strong Hurricanes. You must order the gumbo; simply the best. All the food is exceptional. I love the catfish. Oh, and they have wonderful BBQ!

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
