Jason Newsom “ Big Daddy “ was raised as a goat herder in the mountainous terrain of Nepal. As a young boy he dreamed one day of owning a fireworks stand in the redneck riviera. He made the pilgrimage as a young man only to find that fireworks stands weren’t a money making venture. So he started a restaurant on the river.
My name is Jason “Big Daddy” Newsom and I have opened a restaurant on beautiful Fish River in Fairhope, Alabama. I have spent the past 20 years of my life working in the restaurant industry in Baldwin county with a couple of years of teaching the fine young people of Fairhope, Daphne, and Gulf Shores mixed in during that time. I have a true passion for the restaurant business and love making people happy. Thanks to Al Weeks I finally have an opportunity to have a restaurant of my own. It has been a dream of mine for many years and now my dream has become a reality. I hope that each and every guest that chooses Big Daddy’s will have a great experience. I also hope that I get to know each and every guest that comes into my restaurant. To steal a line from a popular television show, I want to be the place “where everybody knows your name.” So come on by and visit with friends, eat some great food, listen to some great music, say hello to my beautiful family, Susan (bride), Hannah (angel), and Max (wild thang) and enjoy yourself. Big Daddy’s is about the locals, so don’t be a stranger.
