Big Daddy's pancakes are generously sized, fluffy, and taste good. The chocolate chunk and the oreo ones can get too sweet for breakfast, but if you ask them to go easy on the chocolate it gets perfect.

Great Breakfast! Very funky diner with quirky menu!! Wait staff was wonderful. If you're looking for a true breakfast and Sunday unlimited screwdrivers, mimosa or bloody mary's - Great Deal!

If you do not make a reservation for a booth, you will get stuck in an under sized table with people knocking into you every few seconds.

The food is tasty and the atmosphere lively with a great kid friendly vibe but you'll be paying dearly for it.

Service is well-maintained but the kitchen is too small to accommodate their current menu and because of this food comes out at a trickle, so, be prepared to wait.

It was our family luncheon and we had my nephew and his stroller and instead of seating us downstairs as they said they would they sat us upstairs which was a bit of an inconvenience

This is my 3rd time at Big Daddy's, and man, has it gone downhill. My husband and I were visiting my daughter in college and she wanted to go there, remembering it from a few years ago as "fun" and the food being "great." At one time, I thought that too of Big Daddy's -- but clearly, their money goes into the kitzchy marketing, t-shirts on the wall, and clever menu items parodying old tv shows. Clearly, there is no care put into the service or food. Our waitress took forever to even come by our table (granted, it was a busy Sat. morning, but that is why I made a reservation -- for a diner?!). Waited 10 minutes for her to come by and take our order; waited another 20 minutes with nothing but water when we finally flagged down a busyboy for coffee; and waited 35 minutes for uncomplicated breakfasts (cheddar and bacon omelet). The omelet was hard and tasteless, bacon was raw. Toast was not toasted -- just plain old wheat bread. Waitress never bothered to apologize for the lateness of anything. Will never go back for so-so, bland food and indifferent service.

Big Daddy's is a great restaurant for a great diner meal. It is a bastion of teenagers being out for dinner with friends (no parents) and families (parents who need light drinks). It serves many options and all of them good. I haven't had a bad meal here, yet!

The classics, like Patty Melts, burgers, salads, shakes, etc, are just as they should be. The Monkey Bread is fab for the table.

The anytime boozy brunch is great if you think you'll have more than one glass. You don't have to wait until Sat or Sun to have it.

I’m glad that this visit we got crayons and one of those active sheets. It was a good distraction for my little one. We definitely enjoyed the waffles. The mac and cheese on the other hand not so much. I appreciate that I wasn’t charged for something we didn’t eat. The servers were all friendly and helpful. I would appreciate it very much if we order from the kids portion of the menu that the food NOT come to the table melting hot. It makes for less cranky little ones and an better all round experience for everyone.

Diverse menu, huge portions, excellent and kind service. The reason though we went here is because it is a nut free restaurant and those with life threatening nut allergies do not need to worry about their kitchen. The food was delicious and I would definitely return.

I love this place! I took a friend from out of town here and she was in pure heaven between the shakes and the food. She said she would bring her boyfriend next time they're in town. She loved the kitschy-ness of the place and our waiter was very attentive and courteous. The only thing I was bummed about was the fact that I forgot to use the coupon that I received for a free shake but the waiter said he spoke to the manager and said not to worry about the expiration date so I'll be back again soon for another shake. The pick was S'mores-their shake of the month and it did not disappoint! We got it boozy!

We were looking for a family-friendly place to eat prior to a concert at MSG. One of my daughter's friends has a rather severe peanut allergy, so I was very concerned about finding a place that could accommodate his needs. Turns out that Big Daddy's is peanut free! We have been to both locations now, and have been very pleased with the serviced food. Very good, reliable diner food. Great prices/value for New York City. This is one of my children's favorite places to go when we are in the city.
