    We enjoyed dinner at Pappas. The crab cakes we had were excellent and the side dishes. We liked the atmosphere which was relaxed, the lighting was at a comfortable level, noise was not at a loud level, and the decor, original art work, and a fire in the fireplace all contributed to a pleasant dining experience. Our waiter was very helpful, polite and provided excellent service.

    Crab cake was somewhat dry which was very unusual for Pappas. The rock fish my boyfriend said he would not get again. My grandson loved the chicken chesapeake

    The food and service was great but it was so cold in the upstairs dining room that it made our visit less than perfect. One of our 3 patrons kept their coat on during the entire meal. We were sitting next to the gas fire place and asked them to turn it on which they did but it didn't provide much heat. We also asked them to turn up the heat a couple of times and were told they would tell the management. We were not the only cold patrons as I heard others say "Should we ask to move by the fireplace". This was the first time we ever sat upstairs and definitely the last!!!

    Pappas Restaurant - ParkvilleResponded on January 10, 2023Hi Charlene. We are happy to read that the service and food were great, as that is our #1 priority, but it is also our priority to ensure you are comfortable during your meal. We are disappointed to read that it wasn't pleasurable upstairs, and we are rectifying this situation by making some additions upstairs, such as extra heating elements, so you don't have to worry for next time. Thank you for your review and your details so we can make Pappas a great place to come on a consistent basis!

    Pappas's Restaurant stands for quality, consistency, cordial and efficient wait staff. We were a party of three. Our food was well prepared and well served. Our crab cakes were superb (all lump - minimal binder). The prices were reasonable. Great restaurant. I recommend it highly. Barry Fell - Sandy Spring MD
