The best chicken caesar salad and garlic bread in town!!! I've also had their fish & chips and it's absolutely delicious! Papa's provided a very cozy atmosphere and provided great service. Once again, it was an excellent experience and will definitely be back!

After reading the reviews I didn't know what to expect when I dined at Papa's. I had the Fisherman's Catch which was prepared exactly the way I wanted. Our table of four had no complaints about the food. We will go back.

Overpriced, boring food with mediocre service. I was looking forward to my Greek side salad, however, it was presented with Italian dressing which confounded me. This was the last time that I will ever spend my hard-earned money at Papa's Place/Pier 17.
