Don't miss the BBQ'd oysters. These were so good especially with the bleu cheese dipping sauce. The soft shell crab po'boy was the best I've had and the seafood gumbo was excellent. Service was attentive, helpful and very welcoming.

My husband and I are frequent customers and part time residents. Little Daddy's is one of the first places we head when we get to town. Absolutely love to sit and at bar and visit with the very friendly staff, enjoy a glass of wine while we watch the delicious preparation of each bowl prepared with fresh ingredients. I was so very disappointed yesterday to find a new menu and NO muscles!! No one prepares them like you do with the wonderful marinara sauce and hot bread. I regret to say that you've lost us. Although your other dishes are all wonderful, there are other places we can enjoy fried dishes and gumbo. I really hope you'll consider putting muscles back on your menu. Not to long ago we enjoyed visiting with a couple that drove from Houston on a regular basis for muscles. I know there will be others who share my feelings. That dish was unique to the island!
