Delicious food, from pizza to fancier fare. We love the grilled chicken salad and the pasta dishes and they always have fantastic specials.

This place was great (especially with a location in a strip mall behind a gas station) but it seems that they closed. They had a sign offering the location for rent with all restaurant equipment when I drove by last weekend :(

Wow. My expectations based upon other reviews must have been way way off because pleasantly surprised in NOT a term I would use in this review. Although surprised is a term that could be used. Surprised that this restaurant could attain such a rating on this website. From the moment we walked in dealing with the surly woman behind the... More

This spot was recommended by a local (definitely the best way to find good eating). When the nearby gas station is a landmark given, you get a little leary; but good thing we took the leap of faith. Try the soups, try the soups, try the soups - they make Maryland proud. Real crab in the Bisque! As it was... More

We live about a mile away, and we have known Jamie Weiss, the chef/owner at Daddy-O's the whole time he has been at this location. Jamie has really grown the menu, and the location. You can tell that he loves what he does, the dinner entrée options are awesome! You can also get quick workday sandwiches, steaks, and pizza. I... More

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
