Down the Shore: Daddy O Hotel, Restaurant, and Bar on LBI

It’s summertime, and the Jersey Shore is calling. Naturally, this is the busy season as many “shoobies” head “down the shore” for fun, recreation, and food. If you’re looking for a more sophisticated vibe, Daddy O in Brant Beach is the spot.

While the past couple of years since the pandemic have been tough, they are back with bravura! If you want to treat yourself to an unforgettable vacation this summer, consider staying at this impressive and delightful gem on LBI. The impeccable boutique hotel has been casually revamped and is ready for guests seeking an upscale getaway one block from the beach.

Highlights of its new & scintillating revamping:

  • Tastefully renovated guestrooms and common spaces
  • C.O. Bigelow toiletry products
  • Complimentary beach tags, beach chairs, beach towels, beach umbrellas, and bicycles onsite
  • Guestrooms feature flat-screen HDTV televisions and wireless internet, ultra-plush bedding, and pampering rain showers in the sumptuous marble and natural wood-decorated baths.
  • Chocolate chip cookies homemade all day free to guests

Daddy O features two spectacular outdoor bars. The island-inspired Rum Garden in the downstairs courtyard right off the lobby is a private oasis away from the hustle and bustle, and then get yourself to the roof for a bar with a view, the first rooftop bar in all of LBI. These areas are festive sanctuaries where you can find fun, fantastic spins on your favorite libations, and esteemed eats. You’ll want to stay awhile and enjoy all the ways you can relax while lavishing in superb hospitality.

If it doesn’t already sound fantastic, it gets better! The Daddy O culinary team raises the dining bar to a new standard of excellence at the Jersey Shore. The food and beverage program produces scrumptious dishes and stellar drinks under the tutelage of Jeff Alberti, Director of Culinary, and Michele Garguilo, Director of Wine and Beverage for Fearless Restaurants.

Whether you’re ordering nibbles at the bars or dining in the chic restaurant inside, you absolutely must try the shareable Spicy Tuna Tacos (seaweed salad, mango, sweet soy, and crispy fried wontons as taco shells!), Roasted Brussels Sprout Flatbread (with herb ricotta and truffle honey), Pau Hana Sliders (pineapple habañero pulled pork on Hawaiian rolls), and crispy fried Buffalo boneless wing bites. Everything they prepare is of the highest quality and exquisitely presented.

I can’t say enough good things about Daddy O. It’s just the tip of the iceberg of what this top Long Beach Island hotel and restaurant offers. It will forever be our favorite place to stay, eat, and play on LBI.

Don’t just take my word for it; check out what my fellow media friends had to say about it.
