Driving down the 584 looking for, of all things an Applebee's for lunch, we stumbled upon Dad's Bar & Grill and decided to give it a try. The interior is straight out of 60-70s kitsch, wood paneling, early American furniture, but the food was excellent and the wait staff (expected to see Alice, Flo, & Vera at any minute) friendly, courteous, and entertaining. Made sure our drinks were full and even stopped to chat, but not annoyingly long. The menu selection a little too much (Gordon Ramsey would have a field day). We didn't have to wait long for our food; and, when brought to our table, the portions are generous and it is delicious. I had the Chicken philly cheese steak. It was huge and hot..not burn your mouth hot, but edible hot. The fries were thick and crispy. My husband had the bacon cheeseburger, and he commented that it couldn't be a third pound because it was huge. He ordered it medium well and though it was more medium because it was a little pinker than it should be for med-well; but no complaints because he thought it was delicious and juicy. And of course, you couldn't beat the price. Our meal ticket came and was under $20.00! Highly recommend...in fact, we did tell our friends while in the area, that if they haven't been, they should give it a try!

The sautéed grouper was the best I ever ate! It was one of 6 featured specials tonight ($13) and was served with lemon sauce and capers and dried tomatoes over a bed of buttery sautéed spinach. It came with a choice of salad, choice of starch, and fluffy yeast rolls. The grouper was large and expertly cooked.

The dinner menu has a wide range of options from Italian, American, and Greek items. Most items were priced $10-$14. Service was a little slow but friendly and well worth the wait.

It is well known for their breakfast menu and always crowded on weekend mornings. The separate bar area seems to be a favorite hangout for older local people.

I've only been to this restaurant once, but will definitely go again when I return to the area. The atmosphere was welcoming and the staff very friendly. The prices were very reasonable and the servings quite large. I see that some reviews call it "average," but I would have to disagree. We ate breakfast, and it was very tasty!

Food very average most goes from the freezer to the microwave or deep fryer. Like the title says great place to take grandma/grandpa to. If they had a 2-1 coupon seniors would line up around the corner.

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.
