Host was very rude- arrived 10 minutes late for our reservation and he gave our table away and he was not nice about it at all. Usually restaurants give a 15 minute period of waiting time for reservations before giving a table away. He was very rude about it, but did end up giving us a table about 15 minutes later.

We love that Big Daddy’s is nut free! Food was delicious and so was the milk shake.

Went twice, had one miserable waitress and one upbeat nice waiter. So it balanced out.

Fast and excellent service. The waitress was amazing and really nice, even paying for our meal was quick. The music was old school and it was really cool just to sit and chat with friends in this amazingly odd diner.

Dined here before, but this we were seated right under the ceiling fan. The place was mostly employ but when we asked to be moved, the waitress would only offer a row of seats directly under the fans because as she said “we have to follow a certain seating arrangement” even though there were plenty of seats on the side. We got up and left. Lousy customer service!

We waited and watched people without reservations be seated before us. They took a long time for the food to come out and when it came it was wrong

The food was delicious but the restaurant seemed a bit run down. Torn seats, dusty, writing all over the bathrooms.

My initial order was chicken with waffles and I requested only the wings. When I received the order it was everything but the wing, not to mention the chicken was burnt. I sent the order back and got the berry fruity pancakes, which was not fruity at all and the pancakes were dry. I asked for my side of bacon to be well done and it was very chewy. Very disappointing breakfast

Great choice of breakfast dishes, excellent quality and value for money. The atmosphere is memorable too, so is the decor. We highly recommend this place for breakfast / brunch.

We waited 50 minutes for our food to come. That is unacceptable. If the kitchen crew can't handle the lunch time rush, then they should be replaced.

The food was delicious and the service was very good. The music being played was very loud and that did detract a bit. Loved the creative menu options but the paper was worn and I felt that they could reprint them and that makes a much better first impression.

We brought a group of 18 French people to their first diner experience.
Unfortunately, they were not as welcoming as expected.
We called to say we would be a little bit late. They were not happy when we arrive saying we were an hour late whereas it was less than 25 min...
The food was abondant and good.

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.

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!
