    Fun Experience.

    My wife and I decided to try this new place for brunch, and really enjoyed it. It's a fun place with very reasonably priced food and good service. It can be a fun place for brunch, or to watch the big game since they have nice plasma tv's all around. Service was excellent as well. I would say we have another UES hit on our hands!

    Ok food, extremely poor service

    My friend and I decided to check out Big Daddy's yesterday morning. First of all, for some reason the place opened at 11 a.m., so it was completely mobbed when we walked in at 11:15. We got a table pretty quickly, however that was the best service we saw during our whole meal. Once our waiter finally made his way over to us he appeared to have no idea what was on the menu, or have any serving experience in general. He repeatedly misstated the meal that my friend wanted. Then, super-shocker, she did not get the meal she ordered. In fact, we checked the menu and it looked like she didn't receive anything that was on the menu. After tracking down our waiter again, he did apologize for the mistake and offer to get her new food, but admitted that it would probably take another 20 minutes to come out (by the way, she never saw her side order of home fries). My waffle tasted like something I could make out of a box at home, and the strawberry used as "garnish" was way past its prime. The only high note of the meal was the waiter comping most of our food. By the end of the meal the restaurant had become so crowded with people waiting for tables that the crowds were encroaching on the diners and the screaming children were louder than the background music. If Big Daddy's is going to survive on the Upper East Side they are going to have to get their act together, and fast!

    Great New Place

    Just wanted to say this is a great addition to the hood, great food, the service is a little spotty, but the place only opened a few days ago so thats very typical for a new restaurant, they are really friendly and helpful and great with kids i am sure they will improve over time.

    New location - Disappointment

    I'm not going to lie, Big Daddy's is very inviting from the outside with bright glowing lights and a lively atmosphere on the outside looking in. Unfortunately, this is where the positives end. My GF and I were walking by the newly opened Big Daddy's at 83rd and 2nd avenue and decided to give it a shot. Because we live in the area, if we enjoyed our experience, it could be a real staple for us going forward. Boy were we wrong. From the get go, our service was delayed and then once we requested to see our server, we had multiple servers come up to us right after each other not having a clue that the other one had come. After all that, we ended up ordering our drinks with one server and our food with another. There was a nearby table that was so fed up with the service that they just walked out before their food arrived. One of the servers was really rude and it seemed like he was annoyed the entire time. We didn't feel very comfortable at all. After all the waiting and confusion, we got our food and it was average at best. Really nothing special at all. At the price point, the quality could have been better but maybe we ordered the wrong items. We had the tuna melt and the french dip. Both very average. I had a strawberry milkshake which was good. Not great, but good. All in all, I don't think Big Daddy's is a terrible place. I just don't think it has any real edge and the current wait staff there is really making a poor impression on the new customers in the UES. More than anything I was turned off by the poor service which ruined my experience and really gave me a poor outlook on the rest of my time there. My GF and I both agreed that because this is a location in the UES, it is very important to have loyal customers (not too many tourists). I think this diner is off to a bad start and I would recommend that it adds additional people to its wait staff so each server can be more attentive and just have a better attitude overall.
