Food was honest, good portions. The service wasn’t good. I know it was Father’s Day and the restaurant was relatively full but wait 25 minutes at the table for someone come to ask what you wanted for drink was a little too much!

I was looking for a place that would seat a large crowd of 20 people and Daddy's Grill was the place! They had a private dining room that allowed my group to have a celebration dinner and have some privacy so that we weren't out in the open like you might see at other dining establishments. The food was great! Other people in my party had said they had eaten at Daddy's Grill many times and the food is always excellent. The only hiccup we had was that one of the waitresses walked out the night we were there. Our waitress, Rebecca, was left to handle all the tables in the restaurant. She did a PHENOMENAL job in my opinion and should be commended for it! If you should happen to go to this restaurant and they are short staffed, PLEASE be patient with the wait staff. They are doing their BEST to help everyone. There is a national shortage of restaurant staff right now due to people would rather sit home and collect unemployment than to actually work. I commend those people that are working and take pride in their job!

Food was mediocre. If you like cafeteria style food, you will like this place. The waitress was abrupt and kind of rude. She had a hand brace on so I will give her a break. I know it has to be painful to serve with an injured hand.

Very short staffed. I waited at door with a reservation. I went to lady behind the bar and she said she’d get to me in a minute. So I sat myself. Neither of the two on duty came to take an order so I left. You had very few other customers. I was disappointed. Have always had good food and service in the past.

Seems like there was a great deal of opportunity with communication between kitchen, leadership and floor staff. Many items were out of stock, a few sides and means were incorrect and the server definitely seemed annoyed by the whole thing.

We were served half of our drinks then our waitress never came back for 30 min. We asked manager and he said someone would be right over. 5 other tables were waited on and we never were. We left.

Walked in for dinner on a Sunday evening and it was empty and now I can tell why. Food was very bland. I had the "fresh" gulf grouper which was anything but fresh (had a distinct "fishy" smell and taste). Service was pleasant and attentive but almost had to be with only four tables filled out of 100+. Parking lot was crowded for breakfast so that might be the thing here but I found many really good inexpensive breakfast places in the area so I won't be finding out.

A quiet and unimposing spot in Oldsmar if you'd like to get a decent meal. Food was fresh, restaurant was clean, staff was friendly and most of the food was cooked properly. The salmon was slightly over done but still tasty enough. They do close early so get in when you can to give them a try.

I believe Daddy's grill offers the best dining value in the area. For 14 to 16 bucks you get a meal that you expect to pay 26 bucks for. I am really glad they are doing dinners again.

We made a reservation and after being seated waited 15-20 minutes as did other patrons for acknowledgement. Then we only were able to order beverages because the waitress was gone again. It took her awhile to return and no apologies for being short handed or anything. Order was brought out by another person who was sweet and promptly addressed a mistake and fixed it. The waitress was clearly overwhelmed and they were understaffed. Honestly, the food was very good. If they had just apologized and said they were short help, it would have been fine, but we watched at least four more tables wait long times and nobody received any apologies for the long wait. It seems they have good food and a good following, perhaps it was a fluke that we had such poor service.

Good prices foe good American food However an epic fail for a future reservation for Easter Sunday that was made through open table. Called to ask a question to discover that they will not take a reservation for a sunday, they will not take a reservation for Easter and they will not take a reservation for two people even after explaining the my husband is immune compromised. Told me that Bradley the manager 'might' be able to help but called for three days and left a message and he's never there. Wanted to support a local restaurant but it won't be this one.

We went for an early dinner as soon as they opened. There were hardly anyone there which is what we wanted due to the virus. We had an excellent waitress who was perfect from start to finish. My husband had the shrimp and scallops Carbonara. He ate the whole thing and even used his roll to soak up any remaining sauce! I had a Cowboy burger which was delicious. No dessert because we were so full from our wonderful meal. We look forward to going back for dinner again soon, very soon.

we enjoyed our dinners at Daddy's, we usually eat there several times a month. The fresh fl grouper was perfectly cooked and was a large portions, the salmon and the prime rib were also excellent. Glad they reopened, new décor updates the place but menu prices have remained about the same and the attentive servers help make the meal a pleasant experience.

we have enjoyed eating at Daddy's for several years, usually for dinner although we have had lunch a couple of times. We were so pleased they reopened, couldn't wait to go there again. They had done some minor remodeling, fresh paint and update look, al that said the food was just as good as it always was, we had grilled salmon, fresh grouper and prime rib. Really enjoyed the meal, will come back.
