Was very disappointed as from outside and the first impression the decor and waiting staff are good. However the food was processed and felt like it had either just been deep fried or microwaved. Ploughed onto desert and equally poor.

Great value diner style restaurant with great choice menu and gorgeous classy decor. Located just across road from Carrickfergus harbour and in lovely quaint Carrickfergus town. Perfect for family meals and informal dining. Generous portions and lovely presented food served by friendly cheerful staff

Papa Browns Grill; A recipe for success.
Papa Browns Grill is a unique, purpose built, family restaurant in a superb location. It is ideally situated beside the beautiful and historical Carrickfergus Castle and famous Marina. We have the simple belief that good food, well delivered in a stylish environment is a ‘recipe for success'.

The diverse range of customers who dine in Papa Browns will notice the relaxed, friendly and fun atmosphere, which is created by our superb décor, dimmed lighting, modern music and our visual large screen playing music videos. It is the perfect spot for any social gathering, from family celebrations to a romantic meal for two or even just a coffee with friends.

We are open 7 days a week from 9am until late, providing an extensive menu of delicious food for breakfast, lunch and dinner including a children’s section. We have recognised that there are a large number of people with specific dietary requirements and provide easy access to vegetarian and celiac menus. Gift vouchers are able to be purchased and a takeaway service is also available. We also have our own private off road parking which is a desirable feature.

restaurant, email or call in. Papa Browns is the perfect
