Daddy's tends to get busy on weekends. The over an hour wait was unacceptable and I personally apologize. I am not sure what the issue was and the manager should have handled it better. I hope you and your family decide to give us another...More

We really enjoyed this restaurant. The food was really good, especially the stuffed flounder. It was my son's birthday, and they really made him feel special with the song and a brownie with ice cream.
