Diner Reviews
  • "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"

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "If you are craving an amazing breakfast and have hours to spare Big Daddy's is the place to go. The food is very good (for diner food) but we waited over an hour for an egg sandwich and french toast."

  • "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!"

  • "Don't understand how this place had a 4 star rating. It was passable but dated (full of 60's era signed photos) and extremely worn down. Seemed to be a place for a lot of young people, mostly a burger menu, but not cheap. I'd give it a 2 star rating because of the service."

  • "There are so many Big Daddy's now and the uptown locations aren't great. But this one, which is, I think, the original, is still really good! My daughter has always loved their Pigs in a Blanket and I tried, and loved, their chili. Next time, Bacon Pancakes."

  • "Big Daddy's is a diner with better than-average diner food. My wife and I went there early on a Friday evening to take advantage of Big Daddy's half-priced-fried-chicken night and (until 7:00) half-price beers. The chicken was excellent and the price extraordinarily low. Can't wait to do it again."

  • "Cute ambience, a little noisy, good for lunch, good value for the money. Service was friendly and helpful. Good comfort food. Not for those looking for a quiet place. Just a good place to kick back for lunch or brunch. Great tater tots! They now take reservations which was why I didn't come back in years. Line was always out the door, now got seated right away."
