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.

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.
