I've been eating here for 15 years. Since moving to Florida Big Daddy's is a must visit every time back in NY. Tommy is great. Major efficient. Got us the perfect table.

The place is amazing and always a GREAT time. Live bands to listen while ur having dinner or at the bar on the weekends. The Jumbalaya and the Gumbo is amazing but my favorite is the blackened catfish. AND... It is the ONLY place to be on FAT TUESDAY!!! Well done Big Daddys... Well done!!!

If you want authentic and totally delicious Cajun food on Long Island, this is the place. It has cool atmosphere and gumbo to die for! You must order a hurricane at the bar to appreciate the full experience.

The Pros: Great service Regular cocktail prices are quite good Best Lamb Shank I've had anywhere on the island Arrive early Portions are huge The Cons: First two dinner picks were sold out The stuffed shrimp was so overcooked it was like rubber The Charbroiled Oysters...

Not always on the menu, but you can ask for it at brunch. A monstrous portion. Huge piece of chicken cutlet with maple bacon in a waffle. Yummy. The biscuits and gravy are also the best, as well as the grits.

Love this place. I've been going for years. They have a nice Happy Hour with free food. A shout out to my favorite bartender Bernie. Most nights they have a band, no cover. He makes the best Cosmo. Try the Meg's Wings. Most meals can be spiced, but they can be toned down. Love the pork/ chicken waffle! Also, consider... More
