  • "The waiter was very helpful and friendly and the menu is fun and has a ton of options. I ordered the Three Amigos Burrito and it was delicious. The prices are also very reasonable for the amount of food you receive. I took half my burrito home and enjoyed it the following morning."

  • "The service here was great, our server was very friendly and polite. tater tots are very good definitely recommend w.cheese dip. The mozzarella sticks are good too. The burgers were very tasty, flavorful and cooked just the way we asked. highlights definitely had to be the cocktail milkshakes though. had the ralph macchiato which was perfect, not too strong and not weak. It was delicious. My boyfriend had the cookies and cream with vodka which was a little stronger but still great. only complaint was the onion rings, one bite and my mouth was filled with cold oil, you could see it right on the rings, they were doused in oil. Otherwise, the ambiance is good, very retro - kind of like a cooler and more adult johnny rockets."

  • "Such a pleasure to find gluten free options while traveling (waffles, pancakes and burger buns). Was SO happy to enjoy a great burger, and all the staff were delightful. Oh, and a bacon milkshake-enough said."

  • "I have certain favorites at Big Daddy's ... the 'melt off the bone' ribs especially, and their great Mac & Cheese ... but tonight for the first time I tried the Waffles & Chicken! OMG This is a monster plate of food -- a huge waffle with 4 pieces of fried chicken -- sides of syrup and honey. YUM! Really enough for two people (I had to doggy bag a piece of the chicken!) Normally I don't eat deep fried food, but I have to say the chicken was deliciously juicy under the breaded crust. Definitely have a big appetite if you order this ... or a friend to share it with! Our waitress was wonderful and attentive. We were supposed to have a bigger group but the rain was torrential when we were scheduled to meet - we had fun anyway!! "

  • "A little disappointed when I placed my order for the Mr. French Toast with sausage only to be told they ran out of sausage at 2 pm in the afternoon."

  • "I made a reservation since we were 7 and was surprised to find that the 3 biggest tables that would have accommodated us were taken. As a result, we have to squeeze into a regular both with a chair at the end. Since it was too small, we had to split our party. This dampened the experience from the start. Also, the gumball machines were dirty.The food was ok. They only gave 1 piece of toast and a handful of sweet potato tots (which you pay more for) with my omelet. Not enough to fill up most people. Yet the hot dog platter for kids came with 2 hot dogs. Go figure. It is a cute place and very unique in ambiance, so again a fun after movie shake place. And, maybe a good quick lunch place. But, definitely better places in town for dinner."
    Dined on 4/17/2014
  • "The menu looked promising and the atmosphere was fun -- but the wait staff (though friendly) was so overwhelmed by the Monday morning crowd that we waited 30 minutes for cold, over cooked omelets. With so many other choices for places to eat in the neighborhood, I probably would not give this place another chance."

  • "Although the lighting and decor made location on Park Ave seem dark and unappealing, we tried to give it a shot because the food was reported to be good. The menu seemed impressive with lots of comfort food choices. However, the quality of the food was subpar--not even average. My grilled cheese came out cold, with cheese already hard. Since we waited so long (while others were served before us when arriving after us) I ate the sandwich. It was dry with no hint of buttery, salty goodness grilled cheeses are known for. If a restaurant cannot make a reasonably good grilled cheese, there is NO reason to go back!"

  • "Made a reservation for 4 for a work colleagues birthday. We had such fun listening to the music and eating a classic lunch. Tuna sandwich, Grilled Cheese, and Veggie Sandwich were big and tasty. To top it off we had a birthday banana split with a nice rendition of Happy Birthday by some of the staff. Thanks Big Daddy's"

  • "GREAT place for brunch - their unlimited deal did not disappoint. In addition, the food was delicious and they have tons of options. Plus, they have tots - who doesn't love tots? Drawback: SUPER loud, especially in the upstairs area. If you are not prepared for a lot of unnecessarily loud talkers and children, you may want to try somewhere else - or just drink more."

  • "Our group goes to Big Daddy's once a month. We usually go on Tues - some have the 1/2 price ribs ... they are melt off the bone delicious! But this month we had to go on a Monday. Some of us there, managed to get in on Happy Hour 1/2 prices. Margaritas flowed freely ... and 1/2 price Mac 'n Cheese! A good time was had by all ..."

  • "Good solid food - limited menu - not a "full" New York diner. Really great to hang with friends on a Saturday or Sunday morning. Recommend if hangover food is what you are looking for."
    Dined on 3/24/2014
  • "Big Daddy's has a retro diner feel and the food is very similar to something you might find at Denny's. It's a great test case for the "this is why Americans are fat" sect. So, you may not want to eat here everyday, but if you want a place where you can have an indulgent brunch on the east side in an area that kids (and indulgent brunchers) may not be so welcome, and a place where you can make a reservation instead of waiting in line with a couple dozen twenty year olds, check out Big Daddy's. The decor is campy and the service is excellent. It'll be fun. Just don't count the calories."

  • "We waited almost 45 minutes for our food. During our wait, the waitress stopped by once to refill our coffee, but only filled one of our cups and bustled away without asking anyone else at the table if they wanted more. I like the food, but I would think twice before coming again for Sunday brunch."

  • "Me and my two friends came here over the weekend for brunch because it reminded us of a diner that everyone used to frequent back at college. It had a retro feel and the menu is extensive with tons of fun items. It isn't pricey at all by NYC standards; you get your money's worth. I ordered cookie dough pancakes for $13 and couldn't even finish them because they were so big and I hardly have a skimpy appetite. Bottom line: it's a fun place to go for good comfort food that won't break the bank."

  • "Big Daddy's is one of those places in NYC that you must visit once and once you do you will become a regular. It is just a fun place to grab a bite, great atmosphere and the decor will keep you smiling."

  • "I first found the place with my son and we had dinner. The salad was awesome, and he loved the shakes, so every so offend we go for dinner. But recently, I went there for a date with a new friend, and he loves it. I never had a shake and had one it was perfect. He loves the fact that he wanted pancakes in the evening and received it. We been dating now for over two months and plan to bring our sons to introduce them. I think this will be our to go to place."

  • "Our Backgammon group meets upstairs once or twice a month while the weather is cold and we LOVE it. Our waiters and waitresses are wonderful ... climbing those stairs to bring us our drinks and food! We try to make it before Happy Hour finishes at 7pm and get discounts on Appetizers, beer and wine. Love their comfort food ... especially the tater tots ... Mac & cheese ... and great burgers! Personally I like the 1/2 price ribs on Tuesdays! Our group always has a good time coming to Big Daddy's ... So glad I discovered this place!"
