Some friends wanted to take me out for a memorable evening for my birthday. It was a great choice. The atmosphere is intimate and the food is amazing. I can see why this is rated the top seafood restaurant in Dallas.

On almost all special dinner occasions we head to Daddy Jack's on lower Greenville. We both love lobster and this is the place to get it. They have a “cull” lobster (a lobster with only one claw) special that simply is amazing. I spent a few years in New England and know my way around a lobster dinner, lunch, breakfast?... More

The food & service is outstanding. The lobster tail was seasoned to perfection. Shared the crab appetizer. The buttery sauce is so yummy, we dunked the bread in it. Their salads and chowders are delicious. It's a small intimate restaurant. The tables are close together, Manhatten style. Ask for a booth if a little more privacy is desired. Reservations are...

The sautered taliapia was excellent. The street is all dag out. Construction is going on full force around the restaurant. Takes efforts to enter it The restaurant is small and friendly. The service is good. I loved the food very much

Daddy Jack's is in the heart of all the action on Lower Greenville. Awesome location. The menu/ambiance (including the background music) are quite dated, almost sad. While the bones are there (location/friendly, knowledgeable staff) the restaurant is in desperate need of a makeover. The owners need to bring the menu into the new millennium, freshen up the decor and get... More

Decided on this place based on others reviews. Was the best choice to celebrate a friends birthday. The food was awesome and the staff very attentive. The waiter made wonderful suggestions from the wine list and the special items on the menu. The seafood was fresh and every dish excellent. A great place for that special occasion.
