Not enough wait staff. Waited 30 minutes to place order. Food was meh. Sweet potato tots were the highlight of my meal.

Was very excited to be eating here because of the how the place looked. Food was great but service can definitely be improved. I’m a big fan of milkshakes and I was sad to find that every sip tasted like straight up chocolate syrup rather than a milkshake, presentation was beautiful though! Overall okay experience but after experience I’d probably pass on coming back.

Great meal and selection of menu items. Service was a bit slow but the restaurant was full so it was busy.
Would recommend for tourists as well for an authentic American diner experience!

My dining partners picked this one — not really my kind of place (loud, visually distracting). But the host was terrific and service was good. It’s a comfort food menu (hard to find healthy choices), but a positive experience overall.

We had a great meal at Big Daddy’s. My daughter has a peanut/tree nut allergy and is fearful of eating out. She bases her comfort level on how the wait staff responds when we ask about her allergy. Our waitress was very confident and told my daughter she could have anything on the menu because the owners child also has allergies. She was very relieved and had a great meal. Thank you Big Daddy’s for realizing that it’s important to have a safe place for allergy kids to eat. We will definitely visit again!

The service was terrible and the food was so basic. You can get a way better breakfast at iHop. Don’t be fooled by the hype of this place.

Came for my daughter’s 16th birthday with her camp friends. There were 13 of us. Can’t say enough great things! The food was yummy, and perfect for these hungry girls! The servers were friendly and attentive , and everyone had the best time!

Love this place! It never disappoints. Excellent fries and pancakes. Made a mistep getting the Mac and grilled cheese, so next time I’ll be sure to do the three cheese. Was too full from these sizable portions to get dessert. Next time!

I've been here three times and the wait time for food is 30-45 minutes. Don't bring a hungry kid expecting to be fed anytime soon. The food is good when it arrives but the long wait should discourage you from going unless you have time to kill.

The food was phenomenal but took far too long. The waitress was not very attentive and had the entire section to herself with no runners. My eggs came almost 20 minutes after my pancakes and I wasn’t too big a fan of them. My friends waited 50 minutes for their food.

Would recommend it highly!

We ordered food, the waitress kept telling us our food was coming. After waiting 45 minutes still nothing, so we left. If there was a problem, they could have simply let us know, rather than have us wait around for 45 minutes. Definitely not going back.

Dirty and smelly. Waitstaff barely cared about the few customers there early on a Sunday morning. We were there with our six-year old and waitstaff was loudly cursing to each other. The torture I heard a man go through when he came in to order a black cup of coffee to go was laughable. Another poor man sat in front had to ask twice for someone to take his order, because he was just being ignored. Honestly not sure how they have all of those awards posted at the entrance. Would never go back or recommend to anyone.
