We have visited this restaurant several times when in town. The food is good, the service is below average. We have had to wait for our food way to long and our waitress rarely checks on the tables.

My husband and I visit natchitoches every once in a while and decided to try papa's this trip. I ordered two appetizers, creole fries and mini meat pies, and my husband ordered the inferno burger. I asked for the creole fries to come out first as I was going to have my mini meat pies as my entree. It was... More

I ate the mini meat pies, and they were delicious! It's a casual bar and grill... fun atmosphere on the river.

You will receive lots of food with your order. Every thing was fried! So it was quite filling. Good service. Cute place.

My family visited Papa's Bar and Grill on a Saturday afternoon, shortly after the noon hour. It was busy for the time of day, but there were still several empty tables. Our waitress arrived promptly, taking our drink orders and providing menus. We did not order appetizers, but went straight to the entrees. My daughter ordered the chicken tender appetizer... More

A quaint place on brick front row in Natchitoches, LA that would put the V in vacation, in the oldest historical town of LA. We ordered shrimp and fries and tea on a sunny afternoon, very pleasant place, home-townish flair with great conversation at a great price...beat one of the big city seafood restaurants anytime. Shrimp was fried...not greasy...fries crisp... More

They're connected to the adjacent restaurant "Mama's" but the food is not as good. I had the very forgettable Cajon Roast Beef Po Boy. The Caesar burger sounds good but actually not so much.

The fried fish and oysters were excellent. It is not often that I find a restaurant which fries fish and oysters with just the right coating of cornmeal (no heavy batter), the correct seasoning, and having a crispness on the outside while remaining soft on the inside. Some of the best fish and oysters that I have ever had. Service... More

This place is not good. It was recommended by a shop worker who must have been affiliated with the place. The food had absolutely no flavor, neither the crawfish pasta (the crawfish were chewy) or the tuna steak. I would highly recommend NOT going here.

My wife and I visited Natchitoches (Nack-a-dish) Louisiana today and walked around town taking in the sights of this beautiful city along the historic Red River. It got to be around lunch time so we started looking for a place to eat. We looked at the menu in the window of Papa's Bar and Grill and it looked good so... More
