Great team lunch! Table was ready when we walked in. Food was great -- everyone cleaned their plates. Service was Solid. Our server was personable and fun to interact with. Priced very fairly for the area, and wide range of prices. Menu had a lot of different options. One person ordered Jambalaya and said it was more like Gumbo (something about the sauce being thicker and lighter in color), but liked it and ate it all.

Only suggestion is maybe one or two more dessert choices.

Definitely recommend.

I really wish you would do the brunch menu on holidays. Your breakfast menu is a little small but always good we enjoyed our time there and are very well taken care of. Thank you again

Waiter could have been a little more attentive. For the price of the final bill and the service I received I would have expected more. Don’t think I’ll be returning but I’ll recommend if someone wants a 60 dollar final bill with no good service. Rip off! Ps the bus boy was more attentive then our actual waiter. What a shame!!

Service was a bit slow as we were one of 3 parties in the restaurant. However, our server who was also the bartender, went above and beyond regarding the kids in our group. When English, the server/bartender, realized the food would take longer than expected, she brought out some snacks for the kids to keep them occupied until the food arrived. This is a favorite restaurant for group get togethers in Pleasanton as the menu offers something for everyone and includes great gluten free choices for those members in our group who require gluten free meals. Will definitely go there again.

Eddie Papa's is one of our favorite restaurants. Besides the regular menu, they have a regional menu that changes almost monthly. The food and service have always been excellent. I highly recommend Eddie Papa's.

Great service and very accommodating with dietary restrictions (gluten free, nut free, etc.)! We were a party of eight (4 adults and 4 kids). The food came out quickly and we all enjoyed our meal. Cotton candy was a big hit with the kids!

Food was not good. Fish and chips soggy bit crispy, dressing on salad was flavorless. Service was wonderful, though. Manager did his best to make things right, but food just wasn’t worth reordering.

We had a really great dinner. The Crab & Artichoke dip was so good I could have made a meal on that alone. My husband had the Cobb Salad it was amazing, my friend had the Shrimp Salad it had so much Shrimp on it, I had the Shrimp Taco's they had the right amount of heat all was perfect. Plus loved the Mint Cotton Candy.

Sorry to say that I wasn´t excited at this time. I visited Eddie´s Papas again because my first stay was really good. On Sunday the Service was again very kindly but the food was not okay. I odered a clam showder, it come after 3 miunutes. Of course they heated it up in a microwave oven. But they should have the time to stir it up. I the middle of the bowl the showder was hot - at the rim it was cold. As main dishes I`d Mama´s Meatlof´s. The meat was quite okay but the vedgetables were boring. The Zucchini wasn´t al dente, there were raw and without any herbs. May be I was too early - around 05:30 p.m. -

I’m sorry to give an unfavorable review to this restaurant, but we did not have a good meal. The pastrami sandwich was too small, not much larger than a slider. The French fries (both regular and sweet potato) were soggy. The two tacos with rice and beans were disappointing. The tacos (one fish, one chicken) were actually good. But they were served with cold rice and beans. If nothing else, at least serve hot food.
Our server was very good and attentive. The cotton candy at the end of the meal was a fun addition.
The restaurant is popular with families and it is quite noisy.

Lots of vegetarian options but not very vegan friendly. Everything has either cheese, aioli or a cream sauce. The service was kind and accommodating but too much work to pull apart the menu items to get a vegan meal.

I met my daughter and we had small bites from the sampler menu. The perfect amount of food for petite appetites! The green goddess wedge and crab artichoke slider were both delicious! We split an order of sweet potato fries and couldn't finish the whole thing. Our waiter was very charming too. The only complaint is we were seated near a very rambunctious table full of children and could barely hear each other speak! Our eardrums were vibrating at one point!! Fortunately they left shortly after we were seated. In spite of being seated in the running and screaming children section, we had a lovely dinner and will return in the future. Next time we will sit in the bar where it is quieter. Lots more interesting foods to try on the menu!!

I love this place and come here frequently. The food is always great, and I feel it’s a pretty good value for the money. I like the atmosphere too.

But the service is too inconsistent. Some days it’s great, some days it’s poor. Like last night, it was yet another poor service we received. The waiter forgot about the kid snack plate (which is awesome when we get it), my beer never showed up, but I was charged for it. My wife never got a chance to order a drink. Waters were never refilled.

One time we went there for happy hour, but was seated in the restaurant because our daughter needed a high chair. The waiter was grumpy the entire time about that.

But other times service is fantastic. And as mentioned, the food is consistently good. That’s why we keep coming.
