I really enjoyed my birthday dinner. We came on a Tuesday when you had all the crabs you can eat. That I did. It was nice because it was a lot of graduation and birthdays. We enjoyed the band and the singer. She came down and chatted with us. She said that we made her feel like she was a star. She sang like a star. It was great

Very nice place and good entertainment. The lady Grace that perform kept the crowd engage and having a good time. Food was great and they drinks wasn't water down lol. But I can say there is a door fee when you first walk in.

First, had a 8:00 reservation. Second when we get there we were told it would cost as 20.00 pp because they had a band. Third, it was never mention on there website that music would be provided. Fourth, we were unable to maintain our reservation because we refused to pay an additional 20.00 pp. As a result we are upstairs. Fifth informed the manager about our situation and his solution was “ after dinner if we want to watch the second show, he would arrange it so we can sit down stairs, this was after we told him we had no intention of being their late. Now had a patron a white establishment, they would have waived the band fee or comp our drinks or dessert or perhaps dinner. Since they were clearly at fault by neglecting to indicate that a band would be there on Father’s Day, plus, usually on Sundays they don’t have entertainment. This was unacceptable

Brought my husband here for Father's Day it's was awesome he had a great time, the atmosphere was great especially the band and the singer she had the place rocking. But I'm a vegan and I saw online that they had pasta on the menu but when we got there it wasn't but that was ok we made it work..... Great job guys you were awesome, the waitress was so friendly and in point it was my husband first time and I'm sure won't be his last 😍

The visit overall was ok however the man that worked the omelette & waffle station was late and unpleasant. The amount of ingredients he would put in the pan to make sure he omelette was very very small. Had to ask for more and he then he would put a tiny amount. The amount of turkey bacon on the serving tables was very minimal and the turkey sausages did not look appealing. Everything else was fine.

The quality of food was not worth the price. The whole experience was not worth the $175 dollars I paid to take my husband out for his birthday... The only good parts were the cornbread and the collard green, everything else needs work and the entertainment was short.

Warm Daddy restaurant was recommended by my coworkers. So I reserved a table for 2. I was impressed with the the services provided and choices on the menu is very familiar and it made it for me to make a quick choice! I certainly enjoy it and so did my daughter! The cornbread was spectacularly delicious! Especially the mac and cheese with crab cakes! The pineapple cake was so, so good! Everything was served well proportioned to leave enough room to enjoy the 3 course meal ordered. I would go again and I highly recommend this restaurant to all my friends! It is a very warm, friendly environment and the guests are wonderful and friendly! Go dress up or casual ware. You will feel very welcome indeed! THANK YOU Warm Daddy! LOL

My husband and I came in for his 63rd birthday. There seemed to be much confusion with seating, between guests leaving, guest left standing waiting to be seated, we did hear the hostess say "NO one wants to work". It really seemed like you didn't have enough staff to clean off the tables so others could be seated. After we were seated, our waitress was friendly and polite, the food was good, the atmosphere was friendly, and the band pretty good. Although my first thought was this will be my last time i thought I wouldn't take the drive again, we decided overall it was a very nice evening.

I always have a good time at Warmdaddy's. The catfish strips were seasoned to perfection and the skillet mac and cheese was good too. My handsome date enjoyed the food and ambiance as well. Tangueray Howard did her thing so overall it was a night to remember. Our waitress Tisha was a gem 💎

My Experience wasn’t thee Greatest.To each it’s on.I eat at alot high end restaurant,as well as, soulfood restaurants.But this is just My Personal experience coming from out of state to this restaurant.First, I wasn’t aware of a cover charge $20 a person for thee Entertainment.Which i was okay with that.Eventhough I had a reservation set up.The downfall the Entertainment didn’t start playing until 1 and half later.Hmmm the food I had was chicken & waffles.Which i payed thee upgrade fee for white meat.Which I requested all wings.But what came out was an split chicken breast.It was disgusting.Oh my grits for my side was grity.So you know already it wasn’t cooked throughly.Like Really!!My Fiancé had chicken and collard greens.Not gonna go in on that food.But she did not like the food either.Our “alcoholic beverages “ - not good either.But what i will say, we politely got up and left.I still was courteous and left a generous tip and pay for a meal we left on the table with those nasty Long Island Ice Teas.More than likely will not return to philly to this establishment.Maybe for a cheese steak in the area

I’ve been to warm daddy’s before and loved the whole experience. I decided to have my boyfriends birthday dinner there, everything was great except out waiter. She just wasn’t present, people from our party had to go talk to other waiters to get help with our table. Sunday was all you can eat crabs and my boyfriend had only two crab legs in a two hour period. I felt a little cheated that she was still entitled to a $32.00 tip even though she provided poor customer service.

This was my first visit to WarmDaddy's. I was impressed with the food, though I do love spicy food! The evening got very loud and crowded so I was glad we had reservations that were earlier in the evening. We had to wait quite a bit for our desserts and service was a little slow but overall a great evening.
