Diner Reviews
  • "I was looking forward to using my Big Daddy's birthday coupon but was really disappointed with the experience. While I appreciate servers and bus boys wanting to clear plates, ASK first before you grab them while asking "are you done?" It's rude to assume someone is done and then put your hands on something still being used. This happened THREE times with three different people. A server, a bus boy and I believe a manager. Also, dressing on the side doesn't mean have dressing in salad and then bring more on the side. And when you order an appetizer, bring it before the meal not with. Just a series of poor executions during this visit. The only positive is that we paid half price. But does that mean, half service?"

  • "First time in the place my wife's cousin suggested this place to meet up and have brunch since I've mentioned that I wanted to have French toast. Went on line to make the reservation we were 6 adults and 4 kids the website gave me the choice for 10 people and When I went to order it; it kept telling me that the party was to big. Finally it took for 7. When we got there the manager couldn't find the Reservation and told me because I made it on line. the food was cold and French toast saggy"

  • "If you are looking for an old style dinner with great food and dessert then this is the place to be. It has awesome burgers and other things on the menu. The menu is geared for children as well. They have fun whimsical things on the menu. The desserts are different and awesome. The kids loved this place. They were amazed by the lights and wonderful. The adults were amazed by all the old time logos that we found around the restaurant. The adults also loved the music. Awesome fun place for the whole family!!!!!! Third time there and I will definitely be back."

  • "I was with a large group. The waitstaff did a great job of accommodating us, unfortunately we were so big and loud we got put in what is lovingly called "the sauna" which is in the top corner of the restaurant. It was great that we were able to laugh and joke without disturbing each other. The bottomless brunch is awesome and the food was delicious. We were even allowed to have our last brunch drink outside becasue it was a nice day. Great for friends that are kids at heart! I always bring a couple of dollars cash for the candy station. Love Big Daddys!"

  • "It is a shame that the restaurant was understaffed. I bet it would have been a 3-4 star time with better organization."

  • "Overpriced Diner Food. Nothing special. Our server, Brandon, seemed annoyed the entire time he was at our table (or anywhere in the restaurant). Not one "Thank you" or "Can I get you anything else?" Not a pleasant man. I won't be going to back again."

  • "My kids and I ate at the Upper East Side location during the summer. The entire family planned a trip to NYC following christmas they only wanted to go to Big Daddy's so we chose the Upper West Side location. Great scene with the Retro design. Good food. Fantastic shakes."

  • "This is a very cute place with 50s decor. The food was good diner fare with adorable names. We had breakfast on a Saturday morning at 9, and it was easy to get a table, although it was starting to fill up by the time we left at 10. Definitely kid friendly."

  • "What a great find on the Upper West Side! BIG DADDY'S is eclectic, fun, and has excellent food to boot. We had brunch there today and enjoyed yummy challah French toast, Eggs Benedict, and yummy omelets! I will definitely bring friends back to this place, it was great!"

  • "In keeping with the image of a diner, Big Daddy's piles on the food and it is great. I went for breakfast and had a wonderful meal from a great, unique selection of items. Staff was very friendly and accommodating, and sitting outside gives you plenty of opportunity to people watch while you get your fill."
