Casual dinning, great food, atmosphere, sit out side overlooking the river. Order the fried okra and gumbo appetizers, get the fried shrimp, blacken grouper, and catfish and share.

I came here for the first time last year and fell in love with the food. It's very good and decently priced. If you're looking for something specific, they have specials during the week and see what's offered. I ordered the shrimp basket (on the lunch special) and it was very reasonable, $12. Most places charge 17-22 for shrimp. Everyday... More

We have lunched at Big Daddy's several times now. We got permission to kayak to their boat ramp. It is a great place to stop for lunch when boating on the Fish. We don't have kids, but many families bring their children. The outdoor deck, overlooking the river has a large sand beach-like area for the kids to play, while... More

One of our favorites. It is located amongst the trees overlooking the Fish River. The setting is perfect. The wait staff is friendly and accommodating. The prices are reasonable, with daily specials.

We tried Big Daddy's tonight and it was ok. Not worth the cost but ok. We were seated quickly and our server was friendly. We ordered the crab claws as an appetizer and they were okay. There was a good portion of them but they really didn't have much taste, mostly breading. My husband ordered the Big Daddy burger and... More

Neat little place right next to the water. Fast service, good food, and cold brews. Only negative was the onion rings, they should make their own instead of using pre-packaged. That did not deter from the really good burgers. Will be back.

It was a beautiful day and we decided to stop for a late lunch and eat outside. We enjoyed watching the river traffic while we had lunch. Food was pretty average but plentiful. Waitress was attentive.

Big Daddy's Grill is a very casual family restaurant located on beautiful fish river. We are not trying to be anything more than that so be advised: your food will be served in a plastic basket, your beer and wine in plastic cups, your servers will be friendly and may even call you honey or sweetie. We take tremendous pride in providing our guests with excellent food and service at a reasonable price. As always, NO RESERVATIONS TAKEN. We will seat your party as quickly as possible. If you have a party over 20 please ask for Jason, Bruce or Kyle. Thank You! Big Daddy's Grill is now serving all of our burgers and poboys on fresh baked bread delivered daily by the wonderful folks at Heavenly Creations Bakery in downtown Fairhope!
