    Papa's is a popular evening spot in Glen Burnie. After reading the reviews on OpenTable we decided to give it a try and we were not disappointed! We arrived a bit early for 8 o'clock reservation on A crowded Saturday night but were seated immediately. Despite the busy night our waitress was attentive and served our meal in a timely fashion. The crabcakes that I ordered were delicious and the asparagus was cooked to perfection. My friend opted for the sirloin steak and said that it was excellent. Another friend enjoyed the stuffed shrimp which she said is difficult to find in restaurants. All in all it was a wonderful experience and we would definitely go back again.

    The look and feel of a 'chain' combo restaurant/sports bar. Good crabcakes, but that is not a distinguishing factor when you're that close to Baltimore. Nice selection of local beers.

    Was a bit apprehensive after reading some of the other reviews, but my experience at Pappas was very good. Prompt, personable server. Had the stuffed orange roughly and it was as good as advertised. The cream of crab is the best I've had in a very long time. This is a good place to bring the family.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2009

    I took my parents there on Tuesday night. We had reservations that had been made on line. I put a note there was a handicapped person in our party and we were seated at the last table, when the first 3 were open. He uses a walker, not chair. The salmon was very good. I had the imperial crab, it was dry and had a lot of filler. There was supposed to be special sauce on top, it was so brown that it added to flavor at all to the dish. I didn't eat most of it & didn't take it home. The baked potatoes were reheated. There were several things that were wrong with the food or service. We have scratched it off our list of places to go.

  • The Glen Burnie location's
    TabbyHill
    Dined on 4/29/2012
    The Glen Burnie location's menu is quite different than their Parkville location-more pub food and sandwiches which is in line with the fact the the GB Pappas is more of a sports bar. Still, our party of 10-ages 25-91, seemed to enjoy everything. The Cobb Salad was really excellent-very fresh and a generous portion. We were there to celebrate a 91st birthday and management was very accommodating in allowing us to bring our own cake and table decorations. Our waitress was fantastic.

  • Pappas Restaurant is housed
    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 4/7/2012
    Pappas Restaurant is housed in the old Benningan's on Ritchie Hwy adjacent to the GB Mall. The interior looks the same with the bar to the left and the restaurant seating to the right. The ambiance is pretty ordinary; it appears all they did was remove the Irish decorations and theme from the building. Pappas specializes in crab cakes and they are very good indeed. We both had the crab cake platter and we couldn't finish it. Due to the size of the portions, we did not sample any desserts. I had two glasses of wine and my companion had 2 diet cokes. The service was fast and friendly. The bill came to $89 which I thought was excessive, given the location and food ordered. I'll go back but I'll pay closer attention to the entree cost

    We went there for Valentine's Day and took our 3 year old and our 2 month old. If you're out with older kids, it's fine. Our toddler had a great time, he loved the restaurant. However, there was way too much noise and movement for our infant. The bar is separated from the restaurant, which is nice for families, but it is still loud. The food was really good, however, we had to get it all to go because our daughter (the infant) was not happy. Otherwise, this is a good restaurant. It was our first time there.

    Dined on 8/8/2011
    Selected Pappas after seeing it on Open Table many times. When we arrived we were seated quickly but the server did not know we were there. She came after 10 minutes and apologized profusely about the delay noting that it was her 3rd day on the job. You could tell she did not have the rhythm of the job down yet. As for food, the soups were great, the salad was fresh and everyone seemed to be pleased with their food. My steak was a little overcooked but I did not send it back. I added a crabcake and enjoyed it immensely. The decor is sports-bar and loud so it is not a place for an intimate meal. I'm not sure I would go there again as it is 20 minutes from our home. Try it and you might like it. The free pie for my birthday was a nice touch.

    Dined on 7/20/2011
    Great crab cakes and bisque, but I much prefer the Pikesville location. The hostess at Glen Burnie greeted me and then walked away. She never said "follow me" or "right this way" so I remained at the podium. She then returned and was disturbed that I hadn't followed her. Instead of taking me to my booth, she gestured in the general direction so I picked a booth and sat down. Little did I know that she had dropped a menu on a different table which the server brought me when she arrived to take my order. The hostess should have a better demeanor and ask people to follow her when she is seating them and remain at the table until the guest is seated and hand them their menu. Very rude.

  • Wednesday's "Specials" Actually Are
    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 6/22/2011
    The Wednesday night $13.95 crabcake dinner specia featured the same large crabcake that is served at any other time, and the jumbo lumps of crab didn't disappoint in flavor. Half-priced bottles of wine on Wednesday made the choice of drinks easy, as well. A nice-sized salad was one of the side choices, and the vegetable of the day was a lightly sauteed carrot/zucchini mix with medium-sized vegetable slices that still had crunch in them. No mushy, been-sitting-in-the-pot-getting-soggy-all-evening veggies here. The restaurant's site is a former Bennigan's, so the layout and decor are nothing special. But the booth was comfortable and private, and the attentive server left my dining partner and me alone after dinner for conversation.

    We recently went to Pappas for Mother's Day. I made the reservation on Open Table, but we still had to wait 20 minutes to be seated. It wasn't too bad, since they had plenty of seating in the waiting area. After being seated, we had very good service, and the food was delicious. I've been there several times, and have never been disappointed.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 3/1/2011
    The place was nice and spacious. Once side of the restaurant is a bar with no real separation so the noise, music, and anything else would and was definitely heard. My Caesar salad was topped with crutons along with the crumbles from the bottom of the bag. The calamari was somehow burnt (can't figure this out) and lacked flavor. My date's crab bisque was delightful along with the crab imperial. Don't expect to deviate from the menu here, requesting a side of pasta (for a pasta dish topped with crab meat) requires the purchase of two separate meals. Overall it seems like a nice place for a group party for drinks, karaoke (which they have), and a good time with friends but it just did not stand out as a place to remember. Good Service though!
