    My dad is handicapped and in a wheelchair. Everyone was so gracious and helpful with him. Our waitress was so personable and took great care of us. She warned us a long wait for the food and offered to bring anything else we needed while we waited. Overall it was a really great experience and we will be back!

    Upon arrival for our reservation we were seated immediately. Our server was very prompt and courteous. She was very knowledgeable of the menu items. My wife and I ordered Yia Yia's Favorite, which is a 4 oz Filet mignon with 3 jumbo shrimp. Good Choice!!! While we were waiting, we were served bread and our salads. The filets and the shrimp were wonderful. We had a most pleasant dining experience.

    We have not been to Pappas to dine in, (although we have enjoyed carry-out) since the pandemic and we were pleased to see the updates to the dining room. We enjoyed the meal. The food was delicious and our server was pleasant and checked back with us from time to time to see if we needed anything. We did not feel rushed. We will definitely be returning in the future.

    The crab cakes really are the best we'd ever had. Unbelievably huge, with massive pieces of lump crab meat, and only enough filler to keep the cakes together. Our server, Rachel, was very professional. Thanks for a great evening!

    Pappa's never disappoints, although the service yesterday was casual, to say the least. Inexperienced, maybe, but certainly not mastering her station. Maybe more training, management, or combination.

    The crab imperial is truly colossal. Huge and so delicious that i ate every bite. My friend had the crab cake and found it ymujmy as usual. Even the rolls are good and warm. The employees are friendly, the restaurant is clean and tidy, and welcoming and there is always room to park. We dine here often with pleasure.

    It was crowded for Mother’s Day. We had reservations and were seated promptly but didn’t see a waiter or a menu for over 20 minutes! The menu was limited as expected but it still took well over 45 minutes to get our two entrees. Felt sorry for the waiter

    We made a reservation for Mothers Day dinner. From the outside I wasn't sure what to expect, but was pleasantly surprised when we walked inside. We arrived early but they were able to accomodate us right away. It was crowded (As expected) but the tables were not on top of one another. We opted for the crabcakes (the reason we came) and were not disappointed! Jumbo lump crabmeat with just enough filler to hold it together. The taste was very good. I prefer to taste the crabmeat (not old bay) so I really enjoyed it.
