We arrived late in the evening for dinner. Staff were pleasant and accommodating. Our waitress even assisted us in choosing our dishes. All were fish selections, and all were good. My garden salad was so fresh and filled with a variety of vegetables!

Any time I have gone to Papa's the experience has been consistent. The food is yummy and the portion sizes are good. The service is always timely and friendly. Because of this I continue to return to Papa's when I get the chance. Would recommend.
