“Not much on decor but the food was good.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 October 2013

Been to this restaurant years ago when we lived in the area and had the occasion to try it out again on a recent trip to Ft Walton Beach. The property is old and the decor is in need of updating but the food was really good. We had the Thai lunch buffet, and although small, all the food was fresh and tasty. The staff was friendly and very helpful. Price was on par for lunch menus in the area. We will likely eat here next time we're in town.

“Below average Thai and BBQ”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 May 2013

This place has gone downhill. Both the Thai and BBQ here need help and are below average and not tasty. Visit Gus Corona around the corner if you are looking for Thai food, it's just around the corner. Daddy's is a tourist trap - don't waste your time here.

“OK Food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 April 2013

This place is both a BBQ place and a Thai place. Food is average, service is average and price is average. Ambiance is a little dated.

“Awesome”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 October 2012

Great place to stop and eat some great food. Ribs, sandwiches and Thai food. They have really added to the menu over the years. The salads are awesome, but the BBQ chicken is the best.To die for. If you want great food at a great price, then "Daddy's" is your place.

“yum”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 September 2011

this shanty is a great resturant- i prefer to order to go in the summer when the resturants temp is ave. 80 which is too hot for me to feel comfortable but in the winter time its perfect comfortable dinning. my order is always correct, fresh, and still hot when i get home. i love daddys bbq, it's the best bbq and thai food in this area. the prices are reasonable and the portion is plentyful.
