We have been here many times and the food is always great. Don't let the location discourage you, you will be pleasantly surprised. The nightly specials are always great - especially the seafood. On one of our visits I had sea bass with spinach, capers, and a white wine sauce, and my husband ordered a burger - both were fantastic!... More

This is one of those hidden gem kind of places. What's great about DaddyO's is you can have crab, shrimp, or salmon or pizza and subs. It's great when you have a family and you want a grown up meal but you have someone whose 10 or under who still eats only pizza and chicken nuggets. Their salmon salad is... More

Had a nice family dinner - food was good and the place was busy. We had to wait to be seated as the tables were not cleaned off - they were very short staffed I think. But our server, a young lady, was very lovely and served us with a smile. We did not have any trouble finding the place... More

I was visiting Elkton on business and there were not many options near my hotel. Found this one on T.A. and it was a pleasant surprise. Had a veggie grinder. Was made really fresh and had crisp hot French fries with it. Service was good and quick. It's in a stripmall near a gas station so won't notice it easily.... More

If you are a tourist in this area Daddyo's is a little hard to find (use gps) but worth the effort. We dined there last night. Our waitress was wonderful. A college "kid" who helpfully discussed various menu items, kept our water glasses filled, and was very good at picking up cues about when to check if we needed anything.... More

Basically a pizza place in a strip mall with a nice little dining room tacked on. Food has always been very good, pizza and dinner specials have never disappointed. Servers have always been pleasant ant there is a decent choice of bottled beer. Multiple times when my boyfriend has asked if they have milk to go with his dessert, we... More

This little restaurant is in an odd location, but the food is fresh and the menu varied. Sandwiches and burgers are really good, but the honey roasted cashew chicken salad is absolutely delicious. If you need catering, give them a call. They really work with you to meet your budget and needs without sacrificing quality. We thoroughly enjoyed it.

Have not been here in quite a few years and heard it was good so my sister and I tried it for lunch. I had the cheesesteak and she had the crabcake. Both were very good. She ordered a salad instead of the fries and no upcharge which was nice. Service was fast and friendly as we sat in the... More
