Stopped here for a late lunch and when we walked in around 2:00 pm on a Saturday we were the only customers. That should have been a big red flag. It looked like there had been some buffet offering but we missed that. The only size pizza on the menu was 16 inch. We both ordered the lasagna. That was... More

Friendly hometown restaurant with excellent food. Owners usually there working. Made from scratch and some of the best pasta you can find.

Great pizza in a great spot! If you have never visited Fairhope you are missing out. Dennis is the owner and he's ONE OF A KIND! The friendliest restaurateur I have ever met. He may not agree, but he's got a hippy vibe and projects a relaxed spirit that is contagious... my entire trip was better because we chose Papa's... More

I just picked up a slice of mushroom pizza to go so that may be part of the problem. It might be better to eat in and order a whole pie. The guy who waited on me was wonderful. The place had a few people eating in it and they seem to be enjoying their meals and it all looked... More

This is our place for pizza in Fairhope. My husband will not even consider going anywhere else! He says the pizza is the closest he has found to NY pizza in the south. The Neapolitan pizzas are the best, we have not tried any other so I'm sure they are good too. The salads are generous, you could easily share.... More

Decided to have lunch at Papa's and were glad we did. Pizza was excellent. Simple tables and chairs - nothing fancy here but the food was very good and the service was also. Definitely someplace to visit if you are in the mood for pizza!

When my family comes to visit, (including the grandkids). this is their favorite place to go for Pizza! The owner always comes to our table and shares a few conversational tidbits with the Grands! All the pizza is good, but I love the"Frank Sinatra!" I also always order a small Greek salad , which I love as well! Sometimes ,... More

We ordered a pepperoni and onion pizza that came out soggy and lacking sauce. We also ordered a salad that never came. The waitress was nice and aplogetic, but the quality of the food was a disappointment.

Papa's is a really traditional pizzeria that you'd find in a strip mall of any good NJ/NY/PA town. Simple but delicious pies, with all the traditional fixings. Quick preparation, hustling staff, and great place to get to go from. It's a staple for us. Fine, casual place to eat in too and great with kids/families.
