  • "They have Gluten free pancakes which made our daughter so happy!"

  • "I was very pleasantly surprised by the menu and quality of food at Big Daddy's. Usually when you head to a chain-diner, you don't expect a high quality but are prioritizing cheaper prices, no waits, comfort food on the menu, etc. Big Daddy's offers all of this along with a huge menu and great tasting food, no matter what you order. Service was fine. We loved everything we ordered - burgers, omelets, fries/tater tots, and especially the monkey bread. It rivaled my own and it takes a lot for me to admit that! Big Daddy's is a refreshing spot for brunch, lunch, whatever you want (I think this is an outstanding choice for late-night too) compared to a lot of your Manhattan choices. Reliable quality, clean restaurant, huge menu, great prices."

  • "We had reservations for a group of 14 and showed up with 17. They accomodated us and we were able to seat us right away. Service was fast, accurate and friendly. Would definitely return here! We spent the weekend on a mission trip from Buffalo,NY to Jan Hus Presbyterian Church on 74th helping to feed the hungry and clothe the homeless. After a long and tiring (but very rewarding) weekend, a great meal at Big Daddy's was the perfect way to end our trip. Thanks again!!!"

  • "Big Daddy's on the Upper East Side was a fun, enjoyable dining experience. Think, Diner on acid! We went for a late breakfast ( breakfast is served all day.) The menu offered many unique options. My son devoured the bacon pancakes! Service was speedy and very helpful. There was no wait time to be seated. The decor was fun and creative. A flashback experience for anyone who grew up in the 70's or 80's! We will definitely be back!"

  • "We had a group of 13 (3 families) and it was a great time. The kids loved hearing the parents reminisce about the 80's! The food was good and timely (not always possible when dining with a large group). Servers were great and the beer was good, could have been colder."

  • "Feels like you are back in the 50's. Great burgers, shakes, etc. Must try the Mac 'n Cheese."

  • "Went back 2 weekends in a row. The mismatch vintage decor here was fabulous. They have a great boozy brunch and all of the classic dinner food you might want. So many options - good options. Except the smoothies, those were not the best. But everything else was. The service was a little slow, but I was there with a big group and we all wanted to catch up, so it was actually nice to be able to stay longer. And they didn't rush us out, either."

  • "We came here with a group of friends (11 people) before the Pinstripe Bowl. The portion sizes are large, prices are 'city-reasonable', and the all-you-can-drink mimosas, screwdrivers and bloody marys were just what we were looking for. Overall, it is a good place for a boozy breakfast if you are looking for a place that takes reservations for a group, even on the weekends."

  • "This is a wonderful fun place for kids w nut allergies as the menu is completely nut free thanks to the owner. Having a milkshake is a treat for my child with severe nut allergies so he loves dining here. The menu is fun, kid friendly and tasty! We highly recommend…."

  • "We come to Big Daddy's often when we are in the city. On this occasion, we had a table of 7 (2 kids and a teenager included). It was happy hour (4-7 weekdays), so half price drinks and appetizers-- YUM. Eat the cheese tots. Seriously. Eat them. They have a nice selection of large salads (and a veggie burger and veggie wrap, which are really good...I am a vegetarian) and plenty of sandwiches, plus a selection of entrees and desserts (delicious milkshakes!), which make up a diverse menu sure to please. Portions are large. Trivial Pursuit cards on the tables and singable music piped in the restaurant make waiting for your food part of the experience. If you're looking for a fun decades-themed diner, try Big Daddy's. I think you'll like it."

  • "Came to just have a birthday dinner with my family. It accommodated the two babies perfectly, and then it was just me and two other adults. The table was fully extended so I felt a little far away from everyone, but we all fit with the stroller out of the way so that was fine."

  • "Super energy at this place. Great food and service. It was a little too loud, but not enough to ruin my time there."

  • "Went here for brunch. There was something for everyone. Not superb, but good, solid, comfort-type breakfast food. Omelet was excellent with fresh vegetables, tater tots tasty. Burger fine but nothing special. Those with french toast and pancakes were happy. They take reservations which is really nice"
