My husband and I were looking for good, home cooking and were VERY pleasantly surprised when we walked into the restaurant. We were looking for a place with atmosphere, somewhat quiet but friendly and not stuffy---we found it in Dady-Oh's

Continue to be a great place for breakfast. Good service, great prices and food that is very good. They keep the place clean and seem to really care about their customers. Will be returning again.

We found a Friday fish fry here, the only day of the week it's open for dinner. Our server was friendly but put in the next table's order twice, meaning he forgot to put our order in at all. Soon after he brought the wrong...More

My wife and I went for breakfast to Dady-Oh's after reading the rave reviews. I took a couple bites of my hashbrowns and said "This doesn't smell right. There's some kind of strange odor...I can't quite place it...wait...is that ammonia?" My wife took a wiff...More

Nothing fantastic nothing bad... Just a little downtown diner with a counter and decent breakfast. Clean and clean bathrooms, service was good but nothing spectacular to note

I haven't been to Dady-Oh's in years, but given our choices for over-priced hipster dining in downtown Waukesha, sometimes you just want a good, old-fashioned Friday night Fish Fry. Which is how we found ourselves sitting in a cozy booth watching the rain fall one...More

Questions & Answers
Carol S - Do you work for Daddy-Oh's? I find it interesting that you completed one review in 2014. Days after my review exposing the food poisoning incident at this restaurant, you posted 4 reviews, all 5-star, in the Waukesha area. To me, it looks like you work for the restaurant and thought a quick blitz of 5-star reviews would cover your tracks. This restaurant is not a 5-star restaurant. I've been in the diner three times and it always has an odd, funky smell. The third (and final) time I was severely food poisoned. To me, it appears your trying to help white-wash their image. Dady-Oh's is (if one isn't food poisoned) a 2.5 star restaurant at best. When they aren't being careful about rancid fish oil and poison their customers, they are a 0 out of 5 stars. Are you being accurate when you call such a marginal restaurant a world-class, five-star experience?

I called them about two hours after I knew I'd been poisoned. The person who picked up the phone said "What do you want me to do about it?" as rudely as possible. How well do you know the owners? It sounds like you know... More
