Big Daddy’s Restaurant located in Massapequa, NY opened in 1993, specializing in the foods of New Orleans, Cajun, Creole and South. Often imitated, but never duplicated, Big Daddy’s remains the “Original Home of Southern Food & Moonshine.” The atmosphere is fun, casual and colorful which you will know as soon as you enter. The newly renovated bar features Louisiana swamp cypress and old time brick. Portions are big and so are the Hurricanes.

    Big Daddy’s is one of our favorite places to celebrate special events. I made this reservation to celebrate my son’s graduation two weeks ago, confirmed the day before and we still had to wait 45 minutes for our table. When we arrived we were told “the kitchen got backed up” and the party before us was still eating. We were offered outside seating immediately but we clhose to wait. There was a band playing so that could have added to the crowd inside. At about 9 we were finally seated, our server was great and the food as always was excellent. My opinion is that Big Daddy’s kitchen gets backed up because of all the Door Dash and Grub Hub take out orders. Management needs to address this and find a balance.

    although it was Father's day and very busy, there was no problem being seated since we had the open table reservation. Service was excellent on such a busy day. Ordered grilled oysters, although they were cold server was on top of it and brought them back quickly. Gumbo was delicious, as good as we just had in New Orleans. My husband loved the pork over waffles. Portion was so big he had dinner the next night. I thoroughly enjoyed my blackened chicken with salad. Again so much, I had for the next day. Hurricane's were strong.

    Food was great and service was awesome. Tip gpr the Opentable community - they start taking reservations on Sat brunch at 11 but their kitchen doesnt open until 12, so to avoid waiting at your table for an hour book a res closer to 12!

    Food consistently good. The “Specials” menu was disappointing. Ordered from regular menu. Wait staff friendly, smiling, checked on us frequently. Had a reservation BUT had to wait almost 40 minutes to be seated. Hostesses we’re very nice and apologetic but seemed overwhelmed . One of our regular go to places

    Food is always delicious. Definitely a little overpriced, but the food is good. The "crab cakes" appetizer is actually one crab cake and it's $17 bucks. We always request the wings to be well done, but I think the chef is opposed to doing that because it never happens. Maybe because they are smoked and they don't want to dry them out but we do ask for crispy every time and it hasn't happened yet. We still like them and will keep ordering them anyway.

    We love this restaurant. Add times, the wait for a table could be incredibly long, however we were so excited to see that they were taking reservations on OpenTable. However, although we had a reservation, we were seated 40 minutes after the reservation. We had limited time and didn’t expect to be waiting for an additional 40 minutes and we’re about to leave until we were finally seated. There were a number of large parties, And that may have caused Reservations of smaller parties to have to wait so long. It was just unfortunate because the beginning of our experience was incredibly frustrating.

    We had a 630 reservation and were not seated until 650, that was only because we settled for a table in the bar area in lieu of waiting even longer for the desired dining room. All of the apps we ordered were mostly fabulous (crab cake, gumbo (watery), & wings. The meal, on the other hand, was not too good. We ordered 'The Pig Out'. There was a lot of fat on the meats that were swimming in sauce & there was not much quality food on the plate for the price. Our waitress was very good, friendly and conscientious.

    I got the burnt ends with grits appetizers. No burnt ends, just burnt fat. Fat, fat, fat. Grizzle. Not good. If there was meat, it was minuscule and overwhelmed by the fat. Unpleasant. Band was energetic but there shd be an area for people to dine without having to scream over the music.

    Wings were excellent. Gumbo excellent. Blackened Gator Bites, tough to chew and extremely over priced for what you get. The Pork and Waffles was served, two orders, with extremely undercooked bacon. We had to send it back to cook the Bacon more. That's just unacceptable. Never should have sent that out. My Crab Cake Benedict was meh at best. Uninspired and made without love. The crab cake was a joke. Supposedly "lump" crab meat but this is not the case. It was supposed to come with andouille hash but without my knowledge or approval, was served with the same plaster-like Grits they serve with everything else. Just a poor excuse for a brunch dish. At the end of the day BD is a really cool & fun place to hang and have a drink but if you're expecting an authentic "Cajun" food experience, you need to look elsewhere.
