No frills but good food. And fast. Calamari was fried nice & served with a good dipping sauce (ranch dressing with spices- I think). Nice size oysters as well as the shrimp sitting on a bed of fried okra! Fish was good - never heard...More

Fried frog legs, fried alligator and broiled crawfish are awesome. If you want to try alligator just ask because i didn't see it on the menu. Great food, would definitely go back.

You would think after a yearlong expensive remodel that Daddy's would have improved the restaurant......nope, still the same inside. Hard bench seats, a little noisy, but the food was great. All 3 of us loved what we ordered! My Whiskey Bay fish was fantastic, one...More

Hi, on the CHC website it says that you have to dress smart/casual (shirts for men) and wear closed toe shoes for evening dinner, is this absolutely necessary?

No is not necessary. You can wear flip flops and muscle shirts and you'll be ok.
