It's small and out of the way. How small? Six or seven tables and a counter inside and a few more tables outside. How far out of the way? Unless you already knew about Big Daddy Ross's Cafe, you would have no way of finding...it on your own. It's located all by itself at the McAvoy Yacht Harbor in Bay Point, just past Shore Acres. It seems a cafe has been there for some forty years, and the present owners have been running it for the last twenty or so. Not bad for a place that's practically hidden and has no current Web site. But maybe that's part of its charm. For those of us who love the place, we wouldn't have it any other way. Most important, the food is great: delicious, plentiful, and reasonably cheap. And the service is superb. The owner and staff are wonderful people, everybody's friendly; it's a family enterprise where everybody is family. The restaurant's only drawback: It's just open for breakfast and lunch. Still, that's enough.More

My wife and I love this place. After a big breakfast we walk around the marina. Classic diner food that's delicious as well as generous in portion.

Located at the McAvoy Boat Dock in Bay Point, California, this place is well hidden at the far end of the dock area but it's worth finding. We had a table for six and everyone said their order was fresh and tasty. I ordered pancakes...with eggs and bacon. The pancakes were light and fluffy; the eggs and bacon cooked just the way I ordered and our coffee cups were continually filled. It's a little like going back in time to a 60's diner. There was a continual flow of customers and everyone seemed to be happy with their food. Would definitely go back when in the area.More

Food taste very fresh, a lot of food for the money. I would not want this place to change. You would never expect this place to be here.

We've been here several times for brunch, and each visit has been a delightful experience. GETTING IN It's off the beaten path - you have to enter a marina area, pass a bait and tackle shop, and then drive around a harbor on a dirt...road. We thought we were going the wrong way, but then we saw the restaurant - it's a small shack on the other side of the harbor with no real parking lot - you just park anywhere on the dirt in front of the restaurant. It's an old building, but they've been doing a good job about maintaining the structure and cleanliness of the facilities. FOOD/SERVICE This restaurant is family-owned and operated. It's your typical American breakfast/lunch diner, with booth seating and plenty of syrup, sugar, and jam at each table. Not much decoration except for advertisements - they have bulletin boards with flyers and business cards displayed on each table. The service is so hospitable - one of the waiters, Omar, always stops by for a brief, friendly chat and pours our coffee. There's this waitress (not sure about her name) who always takes our order and is friendly, competent, and professional. It always takes a little while for the food to come (10-15 minutes), but it's worth it. While you're waiting, they fill you up with coffee (it's not too strong) and water. The food is quite good - fully cooked, high quality, and filling. I always get the chicken mushroom sandwich with avocado, and a side of macaroni salad (I should have taken a picture! Sorry!). My parents usually order omelettes, and they say they are quite good too. The food is quite cheap, most breakfast/brunch/lunch dishes are under 10 dollars. I'd say it's worth it for not just the good food, but also the hospitality. This is why we are regulars to this restaurant!More

Big Daddy Ross Cafe makes one of the best fresh tasting bacon cheeseburgers alongside Nations Giant Burger. I ordered a bacon cheeseburger for $8.25, an order of fries for $3.25, and a can of soda for $1.50. All prices are worth the taste and amount...of food provided. You can also look out the window at boats that are docked near by while you eat. Big Daddy Ross Cafe has a down home country feel, great atmosphere, and great people.More

My GPS got me lost. Go into the McAvoy Marina. You will see a sliding gate with a caution sign that a key card is necessary to enter and exit. The gate was open but the sign thwarted my entry. On the second trip back...to the Marina, I spotted the restaurant in the distance. And you have to go thru the open gate. I ordered the BLT and there was a lot of bacon on it. What a surprise. And a large helping of French fries. Will come back and try breakfast soon.More
