The menu was terrible ! I came to enjoy good food . Too much Chinese food. If I wanted that I would have gone to a Chinese restaurant . Only 12 entrees. One chicken dish , about 3 seafood , 4 Chinese themed dishes . Even the shrimp scampi was listed as hot . Maybe this will appeal to some , but not to me. I was very, very disappointed .
I also had made a reservation 2 days beforehand and was originally given a small table right by the kitchen when all the booths were free. When I questioned this , I was told they get a rush at 7 pm so they can’t give a booth at 6 pm ? Huh ???? I’ve been going to Daddy OS for a very long time , first time I was given a lousy table and not a booth. Very, disappointed . The service was very very good though. Great waitress !

The sushi appetizers, scallops and flounder piccata were very good. The seafood cobb salad was good but the crabmeat was a little fishy and the presentation wasn't great. But overall we had a very enjoyable meal. Pricey but that's to be expected 'down the shore.

This place was a surprise, hip setting, unique for a beach town, great and diverse menu selections. Enough options for any pallet. Oh did I mention everything we had was excellent. Get the lobster bisque... yes I woulda like a little more generous portion, but that’s because it was amazing. We will definitely being coming back and home to spend some more time on the roof top deck for before or after dinner drinks. Will definitely be coming back!

Everything was perfect! The food was great. My only question is…. I had made a reservation for 5pm because that is all they said was available until 8:30 but we and maybe 4 other tables were being used. I was very confused. Anytime of day this restaurant is a true gem.

The food was amazing and we ordered 4 appetizers and three entrees . Everything was delicious . The drinks were ok and the service while polite did not come back and check on us for long periods of time a long time to get our drinks and were rushing us at the end of the night.

I would definitely go back the food was fantastic and may be just request to sit in another section

Wonderful beach ambience - relaxing sitting in a round table with my family - on the rooftop deck. Service was very, very good and the drinks were unique and tasty! They didn't try to rush us just to turn over the table, and we were able to enjoy the apps for a while before we even ordered our entrees. Overall, one of my favorite meals of the summer! Thanks DaddyO.
