Anyone tried Daddy Mimms' Creole in Phoenixville?

Has anyone tried this restaurant yet? I was hoping to find a menu online, find out if it's good, and if it has any veggie entree items.

    I haven't seen any reviews.

      Previous experience with Chef Mims food says forget about about a veggie option.

    2. Went to Daddy Mims last night. it was a horrific experience. My wife had the short ribs. It was like they finished the sauce with a huge bottle of soy sauce or just a giant scoop of salt. It looked great and the meat was tender, but so salty it was completely uneatable. I couldn't even bring the leftovers for the dog. I had jumbalaya that more closly resembled rice-a-roni. The duck was so dryed out. In fact the whole mess was really dry and some clown went to town with ceyanne in an effort to "kick it up a notch". My ceaser was fine to start, but we ended it after the entre's and beat feet for home.

      1. My husband and I went on 3/21 for dinner and both enjoyed our meals. My Shrimp with Boursin Grits was particularly tasty, and enjoyable the next day as well. He enjoyed his fish. We'd go back!

        1. Hey everyone...don't forget that you all hit up a place that just opened days earlier. It can some time until everything is fine-tuned in any restaurant (new or newly reopened) - ovens calibrated, temps. properly set, supplies gathered, etc. My motto is always wait two weeks until the kinks are ironed out.
          I plan to trot on over to Daddy Mimm's tomorrow night. I'll post my findings.

          1. I rarely post to these boards but I noticed Piko's comments and wanted to weigh in. We visited the restaurant last week and can't wait to return tonight. I had the jambalaya and thought it was terrific; the duck was absoultely perfect. My wife had the tasting menu and also found it perfectly enjoyable. Can't speak about the short ribs, but that would probably be the last thing I'd order in a cajun restaurant anyway. Now it may be possible that the kitchen is a bit overambitious and should stick to its cajun roots, but I would be surprised if they erred as badly as Piko suggests. Will post again after tonight's visit.
