Always a stop on our trips to the Port Hawkesbury area. Good food and service. The pizza is amazing and worth the drive from Ontario alone. My brother is a big fan of their pan fried haddock. Good sized portions, prices are reasonable and comparable...More

Any time I have gone to Papa's the experience has been consistent. The food is yummy and the portion sizes are good. The service is always timely and friendly. Because of this I continue to return to Papa's when I get the chance. Would recommend.

Went here between curling matches. Shared a medium Hawaiian pizza and chicken salad with my partner. Very filling (ate too much). Ordered a bottle of wine, very reasonably priced. Would definitely return when in Port Hawkesbury again. Service was excellent, fast and friendly.

This place does great food and sells great beer!!! Service was excellent and staff friendly. Nothing fancy but obviously well used by the locals which is a good sign. There are specials each day which are excellent value.
