Great food ~delightful atmosphere. We had breakfast and loved the whole experience! Sweet place. Make sure to go hungry- food is ample! I loved all the pictures of Dads on the wall- just heartfelt scenes of dads around the world.

A fun little place w/great food. Service is quick and friendly. Any down time is filled w/all the photos of Dads from over the years. Our 8y.o. granddaughter ordered 'one buttermilk pancake' and we were amazed with what came to the table-a monster sized cake...More

Picked this place for lunch, even though there was a bit of a wait, and we weren't disappointed. The ever changing and fresh menu is scrawled on a blackboard. My wife had a veggie hash that she still talks about a year later. Despite the...More

We stopped in to try Dad's Diner and were pleasantly surprised. The salads were huge and delicious with yummy cloves caramelized garlic. The Pulled Pork was outstanding and the wedge fries were terrific.

Loved our meal here last year...this time a bit disappointed. Perhaps, it was because of the timing of our visit? Ordered a pulled pork sandwich, Carolina style. See photo. The combo of sweet soft brioche bun, tangy vinegar-base bbq pork, and crunchy coleslaw makes for...More

Stopped in after ferry ride from Orcas Island. Food was delicious and big servings. Husband had biscuits and gravy. Being from Texas, he was hesitant at first, but glad he got them. Gravy was thick and tasty. Biscuit was fluffy. I had hash with brisket....More
