    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

    Service was good but the food delivery time was extremely slow. There was a limited menu to cut down on the food service portion. However it still took over an hour to get our food. And we ere only a party of four.

    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.

    Food was excellent, except the bread was too cold to melt the butter. Our table was rickety to the point that the slightest touch would spill our coffee.

    First encounter with soft crab. Sautéed with crab imperial. Good but a bit too rich for my taste Others’ crab cakes first rate. Waiter was okay but we had to ask for bread. Attentive to drinks so that was a plus. When I requested warm water to remedy a swallowing issue he got it quickly.

    I usually visit the Cockeysville restaurant, and i will only go there from now on. The waitress took our order and all was fine my silverware had dropped to the floor and she told me she would bring another set - never did she bring it. Next a waitress who did not speak well put a salad down in front of my companion (who did not order a salad) then we waited 15 minutes not too long...then out came the entrees, i inquired about the salad, said i had ordered one but not with the dressing provided....they said they would quickly change the dressing and bring silverware....which they finally did..when they returned to ask about dessert i ordered rice pudding and they brought it with a fork....opps they said and left to obtain a spoon...never to return. in short the service was terrible... and my pet peeve - why do they have bread and butter plates on every table if they never bring bread and the butter? Pappas used to be much better....alas!

    I ordered the soft shell crab platter that was one of the specials of the night. The crab was delicious but a little bit on the small side. On the other hand, my husband ordered the crab cake, which was on the bigger side. Our waitress was helpful and attentive without being hovering. People at other table near us got bread in the middle of their table, which we were not offered. Oh well, I don't need the extra calories.
