First time at Pappa's, our friend was visiting from abroad and said "these crab cakes were the best she's ever had." Our server was great, the cocktails were fantastic, I would definitely go back again1
Thank you so much, and so happy to hear your friend visiting was happy with the crabcakes. We'll see you folks again soon, hopefully!
Our server was DJ he was excellent. The food was delicious.
Thank you Barry! DJ is new to our serving staff, and we are thrilled to hear he did such a wonderful job. Thanks again!
Food was outstanding! Drinks were perfect. Crowd good. Only complaint was we sat at our table for over 20 minutes without even an acknowledgement from wait staff. However they were very apologetic and made it right. One of my favorite restaurants in the area!
Thank you Susan! We are thrilled to read this review, and we could not be happier about your understanding that things do happen, and this wait was definitely a fluke. We hope to see you again soon, and thank you for making Pappas your favorite in the area!
The crabcake was hot, but the waitress was hotter.
LOL. Well, okay then! Thank you so much for the awesome feedback... in both regards ;-) See you again soon!
As usual, great food, great service, great atmosphere.
Carol, thank you so much! Can't wait to dine with you again!
Give them a try
After coming here every year this restaurant is very consistent with its food and service. We had an early bird reservation and the server was very attentive. I had the grilled octopus with a greek salad that tasted very fresh.
Thank you so much for the accolades! See you soon!
This certainly was not one of our best dining experiences at Pappas’s. Yes it was Thanksgiving and we received our normal great food. However, this time the service was less than what we normally receive at this fine restaurant. Our server “Nick C” seem to forget we were seated in the hallway. We had to request the soup and rolls which came with our meals. And after our dinners were served, he never returned to see if our meals were ok.I will call it an off night since it was a holiday! Also, i received an email from Open Table that we didn’t fulfill our reservation - maybe we shouldn’t have this time! Ok - we have had too many great experience here to not go back again so we will just chalk it up this time. We will go back again!
Hi Ricky. First off, thank you for giving your candid feedback about your holiday experience at Pappas. Non-attentive service is certainly not something we are used to hearing about, but also not something we take lightly. We will be sure to remedy this situation for the future, in hopes you will be less weary about giving Parkville another shot. Thank you again, we look forward to seeing you again, hopefully.
Great food, great service, great time. Server was the best. Love the crab cakes! I will definitely be back.
Thank you Carol!!
Server Debra was awesome- fun and very attentive and helpful. It was our first time visiting and we’ll definitely be back!
Crab cakes, as promised, were full of jumbo lumps of crab and cooked to perfection!
Thank you so much! We love Deborah, too, and we are happy you got to have one of our best servers to take care of you for your first time visiting. Please come back again soon!
Came here on a sat evening, food was great , waitress was nice and friendly , however service was extremely slow that night . Sat us upstairs , had a very large party of like 16 to 20 , which probably was why the service was slow, should of seated us downstairs knowing that . The upstairs was very drafty. The restroom door almost touches your knees when u close the door. Very disappointed to hear that you don't give out the plate of cucumbers like the other two . Not sure if I will come back to this location
Hello there. We are sorry your service felt slower than usual here at Pappas Parkville. On weekends, we do seat both upstairs and downstairs, and we usually must seat larger parties upstairs because of space. However, we do appreciate you leaving this feedback and we do hope you will give us another shot in the future.
First time out to dinner since COVID hit in Baltimore and Pappas was a great choice. The crab soup, crab cake, stuffed mushrooms, fried shrimp and cold slaw were all fresh, good portions and delicious. Shannon was fantastic and was so attentive and pleasant. We both really enjoyed ourselves.
We are so happy to hear that you chose Pappas to be your #1 choice to return to the eating-out world! Thank you so much for leaving this wonderful feedback, and we hope you'll return again, sooner rather than later. Cheers!
Great food--top crabcake and top marinara sauce. Terrific service too. Local ice cream on the dessert menu is also a highlight.
Thank you Michael! Our marinara is definitely an underrated menu option that we take great pride in, thank you for the feedback. We hope to see you again soon!
Went to Pappas for lunch with coworkers. We each enjoyed our lunches. Our server was very pleasant and attentive. It was another great meal at Pappas.
Thank you Debbie! We are happy you and your coworkers enjoyed your lunches. Hopefully next time we can get that 5th star for a job well done. Thank you again, and we look forward to serving you and your friends again and again!
Everything was Great - EXCEPT No GLUTEN FREE CRABCAKES at Parkville Location- I was SOOO Disappointed!
Hi Juliet! We are sorry we do not have the Gluten Free menu that Cockeysville offers. Between restaurant to restaurant, there are just a few things that are harder for certain Pappas establishments to do. But we are happy to hear that everything else was great, and we do hope you'll come back again soon for some of the naturally gluten-free items already on the menu. :-) Thanks again!
Food and Service was Great! The restaurant was very clean.
The best restaurant crab cakes in Baltimore that I have found.
Miss your cucumber and celery appetizer! Had to ask for rolls too.
Skimpy on the tartar sauce as well. Crab cakes were good though.
Green beans could have been cooked a little more as well.
Hi Larry! We are glad your crabcakes were good, and we would gladly have provided more tartar sauce upon request! We do hope you will come back again and give us another shot. Thanks for the feedback!
We had a wonderful time. The food was wonderful and the service was fabulous! The crab cakes were the best we have ever had. And our waitress was beyond great. She was very accommodating to us and even moved us to a smaller table when the rest of our party did not arrive. Thank you very much for a great experience!
Bottles of wine were half price. Wait staff was friendly and attentive. Grilled octopus was delicious, served on bed of Greek salad. Greek salad as a separate order was not a genuine Greek salad. If that's what you want, ask them to omit the hard boiled egg.
Vegetable of the day wasn't good--I really didn't expect it to be, asparagus not being in season. Would be better if restaurant stuck to seasonal vegetables.
Otherwise, no complaints.
Great crab cakes and our waitress was really nice
Everything was nice. The waitress was available to accommodate our needs & she was very friendly & cordial. I had my appetite for a food that you did not have. But I was able to substitute for another platelet.
Everything was great!
I've been to this Pappas Restaurant in Parkville over a dozen times in the past few months and I love love everything about the place, the service was outstanding the food was the BEST, now the food is a little pricey but it is well worth the money. Normally I do not have alcoholic beverage but was out with some friends I haven't seen in over two years so we did have drinks and they too were the BOMB. To play it safe ALWAYS make reservations even if it's just you and a friend, better to play it safe then to have to wait for a table. I would recommend this Restaurant to all my family and friends and I have brought out of State friends here and they too have enjoyed the food. Keep up the GREAT work, thank you all 100 times over for your hard work. I will be BACK.. Darlene
It was my husbands birthday and we had a wonderful dinner, service was very fast and friendly..it was a wonderful choice for a delicious dinner.
Same great food, same great service. We've been coming here twice a week on average for years. Never disappointing.
double get the double crap cakes ...... too much food had to take one home...lol
It was my birthday and my very first time at this establishment I had the crab cake which were very good but a lot shells were in it I did a lot of picking them out but the food and the service was outstanding I’m definitely going back oh and the crab dip was superb.
Hi Keysha! Thank you for the feedback, and happy birthday! We are happy to hear you will be back!
Wanted some great food and service. Bingo! Excellent seafood and superb service
Our go-to place for crabcakes! Haven't had a crabcake any where else in years.
Thank you Mary!
Had a lovely lunch at Pappas - food was great and plentiful, service was attentive.
Thank you Rita!
My friend and I visit Pappas on each of our Birthdays. We do not drink and for years, the cost of our lunch was from $38 to $50 maximum prive. Yesterday, it was $89. We are sorry to say after 35 years, we can no longer afford you. We will have to look elsewhere for a place to celebrate
Hi Barbara. We are so sorry to hear that. Unfortunately, costs have risen so much in the last year, and we have to pass some of those costs to the customers for us to keep providing the same quality of food. We do hope you will be able to give us another shot in the future. Take care.
Easy to make reservations online. Hostess was very courteous and promptly seated me. The waitress was very accommodating, attentive and courteous. Great experience.
Thank you John, besides food, we are happy to hear that all the service from the door to the table was great. See you again soon!
Excellent as ALWAYS! Live me some Pappas Restaurant!!
Thank you Kelly! See you again soon!
Wonderful experience. My second time going, first time was after getting married on Valentines Day 2019 ❤️always pleased. Thank you for a amazing experience
Wow, we are so happy to hear that you came back to Pappas after such a momentous occasion!
Nice, family restaurant that keeps true to its value and their primo crab cake! No frills or pretense, just a nice, local restaurant.
Thank you Jason, we appreciate you!
Our server, Alyssa, was prompt, cheerful, and amazing. Even though there was a sign saying that other crab meat than usual was being used, the crab cakes were delicious and no different. Crab dishes were more than usual, but that is everywhere. I would certainly recommend.
Thank you for the great feedback!
My friend and I had a 7:30 dinner reservation, but went an hour early to have a drink at the bar. The bar was so crowded that we could not find a seat. We went to the hostess stand and asked if she could seat us early. She found us a table right away and we had our drinks at the table before we ordered dinner. It was a Tuesday night so I would suggest making a reservation in advance. The food was terrific. We ordered several kinds of seafood including the crab cake that Pappas is known for. A bargain for the quality food. The server was also great.
Hi Robert! So glad you were able to be seated promptly and that you were also able to enjoy your drinks beforehand. Tuesdays get very crowded in the bar for our famous Taco Tuesday night, but we're happy we could get you seated right away in the dining room. Come back again soon to try more menu items, we can assure you, you won't be disappointed! Thanks again for the feedback!
Wonderful meal with great service! Have been coming to Pappas for years & while I was back in town for a few days couldn't resist coming in for a crab cake !
Thank you, Frank, for coming to join us here at Pappas! And thank you for being such a great regular customer, it's people like you that keep our business afloat. Hope to see you again soon!
