I spent 3 nights in OOB and ate at Big Daddy's twice. I had the Vegetable Paninni twice with salt and vinegar fries and ciracha fries. DELICIOUS. Other people had a variety of things and everyone was satisfied. A few people even shared sandwiches and there was plenty enough for two. The bartender, Candice, was exceptionally nice and welcoming as... More

My partner and I were searching for a place we have never been in Old Orchard Beach, and stumbled upon Big Daddy's on Labor Day Weekend. In addition to having a great atmosphere and excellent drink specials, our bartender, Krista, was outstanding. She went out of her way to check on us regularly, and made us feel at home even...

My friend and I took the train to OOB a few weeks ago. We arrived around 8:30am. We decided to have breakfast at big daddy's. What a pleasant surprise. The place is small and more of a bar than restaurant. We both had awesome meals and the bloody Mary's were ok too. The staff was friendly. Definitely will go back.

We visit OOB twice a year , every year. The last couple of years we have frequented "Daddy's". We've always come for dinner and have never been disappointed. This year we had breakfast and lunch. You can get either one in the morning, that's a nice touch, especially with teenagers. We had blueberry stuffed French toast , eggs Benedict and... More

Nice alternative to the thousand or so pizza windows in OOB. Creative dishes for a little bar/cafe, friendly staff and good service. Bangkok Reuben was tasty, as were the blueberry pancakes.

Unpretentious little whole in the wall. More a bar than anything. But, surprisingly good food and creative touches. Their falafel was great and you get a lot over a nice arugula salad. It was a stormy day and everyone was running in to get out of the rain and get some drinks. The waitress handled it all flawlessly and with... More

It might be one of the best sandwiches around, packed off with mostly claw meat and thick cut bacon. The other sandwiches are good too and great beer selection.

The $17.99 lobster roll is, a joke with a least 5 times as much bread as lobster. They dropped my daughters meal in the kitchen and took a long time to bring it out but as a consolidation did take it off the bill. Grill cheese was good but meatloaf is very forgettable. Service was slow as well. Avoid unless... More

Nice seating just looking out the open window at the amusement park across the street and watching the people walk by. Lunch was nothing to write home about.

We wandered here randomly while in Old Orchard Beach and had no idea that we would get such a good meal! The service is friendly and helpful, and the atmosphere very open & relaxed. We ordered a bacon wrapped meatloaf sandwich and a Reuben. Both were served with heaping piles of fries (we got Sriracha seasoned fries, no extra cost!).... More
