Daddy Jack’s luminescent sign hangs over its corner spot in the Sundance Square district, beckoning diners to walk past the outdoor patio and detect the aroma of fresh lobster, clams, and a perfectly grilled steak here and there. Fresh seafood satiates East Coast cravings at both dinner and lunch with blackened shrimp and jumbo sea scallops and lobster tails. Pasta dishes entangle mussels, lobster, and clams in housemade sauces, while completely vegetarian dishes forego the seafood for mushrooms, tomatoes, and balloon animals. Wines journey from around the globe—from Chile to New Zealand—to wash down meals.

The Bottom has plenty of Fort Worth pride. The multiple flat-screen TVs attract flocks of TCU students and fans on game days, and the menu itself has items that pay homage to the fearsome Horned Frogs. There are the purple beer and the Polliwog: a frozen concoction named after the Old English term for a tadpole and made with secret ingredients that can only be revealed if the blender is kissed by a princess. Also in the bar, 35 taps represent breweries from nearby and afar, including Rahr & Sons, Shiner, Saint Arnold, and Stone.

In addition to the bar, this family-owned, community-oriented restaurant offers something for everyone. Saturday and Sunday brunch entice local families to stop by this neighborhood eatery. Outside, guests can unwind on the spacious patio and enjoy gigantic burgers and Southwestern apps and entrees amid leafy palms at tables in both the shade and the sun.
