“Our Favorite!”
Reviewed August 9, 2013

Since buying a home in nearby Safety Harbor, Daddy's Grill has become our favorite. When we arrive in Florida our first night out is Daddy's for the grouper. Their prime rib is the best around, delicious herbed crust and real au jus, not just canned beef broth. Service is always good and the prices are just right. We've never had a bad meal there and we look forward to many more.

“Forget the Fish!”
Reviewed May 8, 2013

daughter and I ate here on a Thursday night and found the food to be totally forgetable. We both had fish It's hard to recommend a dinner that the best thing is the side salad. Everything had the texture of being frozen with even the fish hving a little pool of water benesth which is not expected from rilled (?) fish. daughter's fish had some sauce which was not much better. Vegetables sauted frozen. Mashed potatoes and gravy tasteless. Would not return there if the food was free.

“Solid food, nice service”
Reviewed April 30, 2013

This place has good, solid food at very reasonable prices. The servings are generous, and the servers are patient and accommodating. A varied menu of offerings, the soups are home made and can be a meal in itself.

“Comfort Place Serving Comfort Food”
Reviewed April 20, 2013

When you walk in the door of Daddy's, you quickly realize this is a place where people come for a relaxed atmosphere and comfortable surroundings to eat comfort food. The huge collection of old photographs of the history of Oldsmar and the story of local residents tell you this is a restaurant firmly planting it's roots into Upper Tampa Bay.

My wife and I came for lunch and almost felt like we were in the middle of a club meeting. The waitresses were greeting dozens of people by their first name and engaging in personal conversation. Don't fear - you'll get fast and friendly service.

The lunch menu is extensive but mainly covers dishes that Americans want to see. The grouper sandwiches were very good. We were tempted by some classic Southern breakfast items that they serve until 2 pm.

If you're in the Oldsmar area and want some good family cooking at a reliable family-owned restaurant, Daddy's is the spot.

“Nothing to Write Home About...”
Reviewed April 11, 2013

I should've known from all the blue hair when I walked in that this was not the type of place I was looking for. The place was a little dim. Not dirty, but really didn't have a very cheerful atmosphere. The waitress acted like she had never seen children before in her life and had the most perplexed look on her face when we requested ordinary items like a cup of hot water and a bowl of fruit. We ordered grouper sandwiches. It was bland and came on an ordinary toasted hamburger bun. I came here because of the reviews, but Daddy's is not all that spectacular. =/
