Not a bad place, but be prepared to yell your conversation across the table! The Pros: Great service Regular cocktail prices are quite good Best Lamb Shank I've had anywhere on the island Arrive early Portions are huge The Cons: First two dinner picks were sold out The stuffed shrimp was so overcooked it was like rubber The Charbroiled Oysters...

Not always on the menu, but you can ask for it at brunch. A monstrous portion. Huge piece of chicken cutlet with maple bacon in a waffle. Yummy. The biscuits and gravy are also the best, as well as the grits.

Love this place. I've been going for years. They have a nice Happy Hour with free food. A shout out to my favorite bartender Bernie. Most nights they have a band, no cover. He makes the best Cosmo. Try the Meg's Wings. Most meals can be spiced, but they can be toned down. Love the pork/ chicken waffle! Also, consider... More

Got there early and the place was already crowded. Had a drink and waited. Not as long as I thought with the crowd. Been here many times. Tried the crab cakes and they were tasty. A little kick. Just enough! We all had one of the specials. The four of us did not talk very much until we were half... More

Love Big Daddy's. Food is always flavorful and the service fantastic. During the fall/winter months they have wild game weekends, my favorites are the wild boar and elk entrees. The sausage platter (duck and venison) are a great appetizer. Their regular menu is great too. Pot roast, catfish, stuffed chicken and pork dishes have always been good to me. The... More

A great little Cajun treasure. We love it's creative & changing menu and the quality of everything we've enjoyed there. The portions are beyond large! You have to exercise self control to avoid over eating. The bar menu is also unique & excellent. Some of their signature cocktails are a must have! We were so happy when they doubled in... More

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!
