Daddy Jack's

1916 Greenville Ave. Dallas, TX 75206 | East Dallas & Lakewood | 214-826-4910

Location Description:

East, West and Gulf coasts meet at this self-styled New England lobster and chowder shack on lower Greenville. That's a lot of directions under one roof. However, a compass is unnecessary. Diners simply locate the red neon lobster and blue neon bowl of chowder capped by a red awning. Once seated at a table clothed in red-and-white checker, customers can order copious amounts of specials in grand portions. Whatever is requested, meals are practically required to begin with a bowl of lobster bisque or clam chowder -- they're in the restaurant's full name. Daddy Jack's jumps the pond and goes for the boot with the popular Fra Diavolo with Maine lobster. The joint might be located in the barhopping live-music scene that is Lower Greenville, but it's family-friendly and couples-friendly as well.
