Food, drinks, and service was great! A $20 cover charge for a 45 minute show was excessive. The evening cost me $100 before my family drank a glass of water. Needless to say the family enjoyed the outing but not worth what I spent. There’s a 18% gratuity added for parties of 5. Enjoy but bring plenty of $$$$$$.

We dined on 3/14/20 it was a party of seventeen. I forgot our waitress' name but she was on point and she even took our group photo. I had the southern fried chicken, yams, collard greens, and mac and cheese. Everything was tasty. I had the jerk chicken wings for an appetizer but they were dry. The portions were a nice size and it was plenty left to take home and I ate off of that plate for 2 days; I could've went another day but I was tired of eating the same food. I definitely recommend this place.

Food, music and venue were excellent. We could have used more space between tables as the waiters and waitresses had to raise their dishes and trays and I had to duck whenever they came through the aisles. Everything else was top shelf.

We arrived a little early for our reservation and took a seat at the bar for a couple of drinks. The service at the bar was good and professional. We were seated a little while later at our table and given menus that didn't resemble the online menu.Never the less, the Catfish platter was good and my wife had the Fried Chicken platter that was also good. The service was very good but the alcoholic drinks, I thought, were a little light in the pour. All in all, I would return without hesitation.

I was not a fan of their mac n cheese. Nonetheless, I adore their cornbread, drinks (the honey pot is good), green beans and black eyed peas. The service was incredible and the music was great. The band was phenomenal. It can get very noisy in there. My reservation was for 6:30pm. By 8:00pm, my fiance and I were shouting at each other due to the noise.

The restaurant was cold with kerosene heaters they ran out of crab cakes and restaurant just opened for dinner at 4 so I don’t understand how our waiter waited on his larger parties faster than my table overall it was bad I had eaten there years ago and everything was ok But I guess things changed

The volume of the music/band was too loud but they sounded great. You had to lean in and scream to hear the waitress or anyone talking it was extreme. The food was just ok, catfish was seasoned with only salt (an excessive amount if it) and the Turkey wings weren't cooked consistently (some parts were dry and some were perfect). They were out of an entree and a dessert, the menu isn't that extensive and our reservation was for 7:30pm on a Friday. They had a whole second wave of reservations for the 2nd set of music. I think the entire menu should have been available so early in the night. The overall vibe is great.

it was a great evening out, eat with new friends. Music was excellent, food was great

Mixed drinks were not that good. Unaware that there was a cover charge.

Would absolutely go again

You may want to call HR because you need to fire your Sous chef - they burnt my salmon and under cooked my cousins. Who doesn’t know how to sear Salmon then oven baked to get a great salmon with pineapple sauce (I mean, come on...)The candy yams was more like broth with some potato tidbits - if I wanted soup, I would have ordered Soup!! The waitress seem like she had an attitude when we told her about our food - when I asked for another side because they had to take the sweet potatoes off the rotation, she never brought my replacement side back - the manager had to bring it. Then, when it was time to get the check, she never came back and it took us 20 minutes to get our check!! And for pete’s sake, can I just get some plain ole Cabbage!!! WarmDaddy’s is good for Music and location, but if you want some good ole Soul Food with FREE cornbread(I mean who doesn’t give your first cornbread for the table FREE - ugh) then go to Kevin Parker’s, Ms. Toostie’s on South Street..

I have been a customer for a short while and I am disappointed with my last 3 visits. I kept returning hoping that things would improve.
This last visit more than likely will be our last. Our experience was not good. The food was cold, including the normally delicious cornbread which was also very dry, the portions were smaller, the short rib one of us ordered was burnt and tiny, the gravy on the mashed potatoes was so cold it clumped up.

Our waitress was not patient, and attentive. Overall it was not worth the trip..

Mac and cheese should be allowed as a side for an up charge, $2 or $3.

Prices are high for food and drinks. Should consider lowering them.

Need more staff especially on weekends.

Managers should walk by at least once and speak.

Went to celebrate my moms birthday with family. They've never been as they are from another city. They loved it I loved it. We sat right next to the stage voice of the performer was perfect not loud at all. The food was great. I have 4 starts for overall because of the omelette station. By the time I got my omelette my family was on their second plate. It took way too long. Also the price for children. My son is 4 and all he ate was two spoon of Mac and cheese and orange juice and I still paid 17.95. It was his grandmothers birthday brunch and I didn't him to miss it

The food was great, our drinks were delicious/strong. The Amazing Grace tore the house down with us being her 3rd show for the night. Due to the large crowd our wings took a little bit longer to arrive. Our waiter waisted no time offering our wings and A drink on the house. I enjoy going to Warm Daddy's, it's my socialization place to go.
