Loved the outside seating and food was wonderful. Lots of seafood but I opted for a cheeseburger. I like mine medium rare and it was perfectly cooked! Other family got seafood and they were all satisfied as well.

This is a nice looking and very clean restaurant, but the food is just okay. The servers were indifferent to us and most customers, often ignoring and taking too long. We went there twice because the area lacked places to eat. We were not impressed.

First time back to Big Daddy's in a long time. The food is definitely blah and pretty much "fish camp" fare. Service could've been better.

Just your average beach resort eating establishment. Good food and service. Nothing special but then it doesn't have to be; it's a beach town and people are hungry and just want to eat. Place needs updating and air conditioning; only one dining room has air....More

As a single woman, of a certain age, I travel alone quite a bit. The food offerings in tiny Kure Beach are minimal and I'm allergic to shellfish. =) I asked the hostess for the menu and, once I perused it, I asked if I...More
