Big Daddy’s – Upper West Side
Mon–Thu 8:00 am–11:00 pm

It was delicious. I had the Real Mac Coy, a burger with creamy mac n cheese & bacon. I also had the Cookie Monster, vanilla shake with oreo cookies & whipped cream. Everything tasted good here. I would definitely recommend.
The worst dining experience we’ve ever had. No heat and it was 25 degrees outside. No servers. It took more than an hour for hamburgers and pancakes. Unforgettable for all the wrong reasons. Should be called Big Disaster’s
For my birthday I got a coupon from big daddy’s for a free entree and milkshake it was super delicious!
This is a great restaurant. Great for dates, to celebrate a birthday, or to simply go out to eat with your family and friends. The inside of the restaurant is beautiful and the food is delicious with great portion sizes.
It was awesome
Great place for kids. The nostalgia was great for adults. Pure comfort food. Dynamite margeritas!!!
Very good. Food took a while, but was tasty
I went to Big Daddy’s for my birthday and I absolutely enjoyed myself. The food was amazing the, staff was friendly. Everything was good.
This was my second time dining at Big Daddy's. Both times, the venue was selected by someone else. Personally I would not have dined here again. But sometimes you have to go with the flow. The restaurant has a 1950s theme, and there is abundant and garish decor, perhaps to distract you from the food and service. The portions are huge, but unfortunately the food quality is mediocre at best. Some of the food was not fresh at all --- I was served fruit that must have been cut several days before and then left out to rot. We also had to leave our table and send out members of our party several times to try to get our own service, find missing parts of our order, and resolve quality or cleanliness problems, as our server could not be found or was overwhelmed due to bad management. Overall I cannot recommend this restaurant.
Great breakfast! Yummy taster tots with all sorts of goodies! Fun atmosphere.
We were 6 meeting for brunch. The place is a bit run down, bathrooms not great. Food was fair at best, for the price, there are much better options.
Chicken and waffles and Mac and cheese were AMAZING!
Service was great. There was attentive staff and quality food. There was a little mess up with the checks but we got it figured out. Overall great experience.
I loved our waitress.
Great pop decor throughout restaurant. Very 50's and 60's inspired but, very today and hip. Burgers are delicious and tater tots are a "take you back in time" treat. Milk shakes are out of this world and deliciously extravagant. Weight staff was very savvy and helped our group with food choices.
The music was a bit too loud but, that is to be expected in a diner like this one.
Over priced for the food, poor service. We got some of our food then we got the rest a half hour later. They messed up our drinks and didn’t cook anything from the check. Crappy service for sure!
My Waiter Josh or George I can't remember but he was the best he connected with the kids his patience was amazing I would go back just for him. Great kid's menu so much to choose from thank you Big Daddy.
My family and friends love it here!
Absolutely amazing, we came from Galloway NJ, had a reservation for 8 and was seated immediately. Our food came out fast and delicious, the place is so comfortable with conversation pieces all over, the lunch boxes definitely took us down memory lane. I loved it and will definitely be back❤️❤️
We come here with the kids once in a while. Food is really good across the menu. Shakes and tater tots a must. On the flip side, the service is almost always terribly, terribly slow. We usually order everything we want as soon as we make contact with a waitress/waiter. If you plan for slow service then you'll have a good experience with excellent food in large portions. We'll be back.
Classic breakfast ....huge servings. The best tater tots ever!!!! Will definitely return
This was my first time there but if i listen to my family especially my kids this will not be the last time. we were celebrating my two year old birthday and i chose it because i read it was good for kids. i think that whether you are a kid or a adult you would enjoy this place. the food and the staff made it very comfortable and my family had a great time and a full belly. all parties were fast asleep as soon as we got home.
Ignored when we arrived. Finally sat down. No menus. They bring them 15 minutes later after we had to ask. Takes forever to order. And even longer for the food to arrive. Was cold because it sat around waiting for the waitress to get it. Awful awful awful
First time dining. Exceeded my expectations. Had a blast.
It’s what you’d reasonably expect from a diner joint.
Pro: sweet potato tater tots
Con: sticky floors, tables, and seats
I’d go again if I happened to be in that part of NY, had nowhere else to eat, and was extremely hungry.
I normally do enjoy this place very much. In fact, it has become a tradition amongst my friends and i to come here on a special date every year. However, this year, although our milkshakes were quite delicious, they took forever to arrive. We had to wait three hours for food. Maybe they were just having a bad day? I hope next time there will be less of a wait. Otherwise, this is a great place with a great vibe.
Using Open Table was a trial, and ridiculous given the place was only half full. Couldn't get an ice cream soda- they didn't make them. Waitress never heard of an egg cream or a frappe. Gave recipe for an egg cream and actually DID get what was an ice cream soda! Came here for the su-pposed 50's vibe of the East Side location, only to find decor was of the 60's, staff was ignorant and inattentive when they ween't being rude and unfriendly as well, aside from our wonderful waitress. Noise was exceedingly loud, pace was frantic -- altogether disappointing
I was very disappointed that I went here on mother's day. The service was poor: our table was sticky. the food arrived cold. we had no utensils for a while. i asked for gingerale and received soda without the syrup because the machine was out. the waitress was not attentive and the place was not busy... not a good mother's day brunch place.
As always we had a great time for Mother's Day. Frankly, there is no wrong special occasion for a meal here. I am on a restricted diet which includes needing to be gluten free. I always leave happy and satisfied.
Great staff, great ambience, great food. We had a fabulous time and definitely will revisit.
Lucy our server is always excellent!
Honestly love it I recommend for a fun date or a birthday
Main problem was it was way too hot and no A/C
Typical American Food, not so flavorful. The Piñacolada was the best thing. HOWEVER! It’s a must for children! They will definitely love it, at least I know my sister was thrilled!
i was in the mood for a hamburger but was advised they will not cook it medium rare - the grilled chicken was recommended and came with avocado and other tasty things i cant recall right now - i got it without the bread and it was still a large and satisfying meal - also fresh fruit salad was an option instead of fries and that was a plus for me
Love this place ambiance is great food is great mimosas are the best!!! Place is awesome from the decor to the food no complaints and for those people that complain about waiting for a table make a reservation on open table and you don’t have to wait I got seated before my reservation time.
A great time was had by all.
Attentive service was helpful.
Service was very disappointing. Normally we feel very comfortable here, but last day waiters were a kind of rude to us.
Had a great lunch with my family for my birthday! We had three adults and 2 kids. All had a great time!
