“Fresh and Fabulous”
Reviewed 24 April 2014

This was by far one of the best fast food stops we have ever had. wonderful fish, prawns and popcorn shrimp as well as terrific fresh French fries served with a smile and wonderful customer service. they provide outside tables, covered and plenty of fleece blankets to keep you toasty til your food arrives. Be sure you take the time to search it out and you will be sure to enjoy a wonderful meal.

“Halibut & Chips”
Reviewed 25 March 2014

Just awesome fish & chips! We liked these even more than the ones we had at the upscale Pointe restaurant at Wickinninsh Inn. Friendly service with a smile & husband loved them so much he had to go back the next day to have them again! Yummy quick casual meal!!

“Legendary”
Reviewed 13 November 2013 via mobile

My friends and I have been going to tofino for vacation every year to surf for ten years now and one day is devoted to a day of sport-eating. It begins with a breakfast wrap at Breakers across the street but the main event is always Big Daddy's Fish Fry. Each guy must have the two piece halibut and chips and the Big Daddy's Burger and fries. The burger is one of the best out there and the fish and chips are still the best I've ever had.
Thank you Big Daddy for being such an important part of our lives.
Cheers
