Big Daddy's #1 The Kure Beach location boasts a colorful and assorted history. The Eakes Family who owns the restaurant tried many ideas to serve the public in the early years.

Big Daddy’s property has been home to a miniature golf course, dune buggy rental and, “open-air” dance hall. They tried an ice cream parlor, breakfast house and, steak house. Now, the restaurant serves us the finest steak and seafood around. They are open every day from 12PM until…   Months are from spring’s opening day until the last week in September.

The History Society is very impressed with the history of Big Daddy’s and the stories it tells us of our youth and days well spent having fun in Kure Beach, NC.
