The service was excellent. We had appetizers of fried cheese and crab cakes and both were great. Our dinners were all good too. My fish was not much warmer than room temperature but I have some leeway right now as I know the restaurant business has been incredibly hard to balance with what is going on. I'd for sure go back and I'd recommend this place to others who haven't been before.

Food wasn’t up to par on Valentines Day. Mashed potatoes weren’t that warm & just didn’t cut it. Wish there were more veggie choices on Valentines Day. They ran out of roses right before we were seated

My wife and I went for Valentine’s Day dinner and everything was great except the server seemed a bit off. The server although she was nice was a bit slow to get our order taken and didn’t go in order of how we were seated.

Try to get here every weekend. Food is delicious. Tim and Jason usually stop by to say hello. Always get drinks and food quickly without being overbearing. So yes, highly recommend, but always make a reservation on OpenTable to make sure you get a seat.

Papas is a neighborhood restaurant with great crab cakes, where it shines. The rest of the menu is decent, I will not go except for crab cakes. However, the menu is not to be excluded as a no no, just not the food that I prefer. Service is good and I think they have 1/2 price wine nights during week. Recommended, especially for crab cakes.

Always a good meal here with fast and attentive service without being overbearing. Tim usually checks in on us to make sure we are okay, and if Justin is in (he was this night) he stops by to say hello. They both know we are regular customers and make sure we are taken care of. I can only say good things about this establishment.

We were sat upon arrival and were given menus. We sat for 20 minutes before we were given water. After another 20 minutes we received an apology, drink orders were taken, and we were given the pickled cucumber plate ... no side pates or utensils ... another 15 minutes before actually placing order for dinner ... it’s a shame, we really love the food, however will rethink driving over an hour for such poor service. We’ve visited Pappa’s many times and never had such poor service.

More people there than in past outings so the noise level was a little higher. Still had great service. The only drawback was we had reserved a hightop in the bar via OpenTable and when we got there there were none available. We were offered a regular table which is not what we really wanted but shortly after being seated we were told there was a spot at the bar and we took that instead. So we left happy, satisfied and full. Always outstanding meals here.
