Papa's has been Making Hungry People Happy Since 1972. We take pride in serving quality smoked meats, fresh seafood and other fine foods. All of our bar-b-qued menu items are slow cooked right here in our wood-fired pit. Only the freshest Shrimp, Flounder, Tilapia and Oysters are prepared at Papa's. All of our Soups, Salads and Sandwiches are fresh made on site everyday and we also have a Kids Menu. Papa's BBQ & Seafood is a full service restaurant with a full bar. We can accommodate large parties and have plenty of free parking only minutes away from Downtown Savannah and Tybee Island.

They make their own BBQ Sauce

The BBQ was very good and they have their own sauce that they make. There was something on the menu for my wife and son since they do not like BBQ. Everyone found something that they could enjoy.

This was my first time visiting Papa's BBQ and Seafood. It was about 8 o'clock on a monday and the restaurant did not close until 9. We were in a bit of a hurry because we needed to pick up a prescription from the pharmacy in the same plaza. My boyfriend and I had no intentions of going out to... More

Papas is consistently wonderful. The food is always good, the servers are really sweet and fast, and the prices are fair. We go here a few times a year and we always have a great experience. A+

My friend and I visited Papa's BBQ & Seafood during vacation to the Savannah area becausue we like to support local businesses when possible. We were very pleased with our meal, the atmosphere and especially the excellent service. Our server, Heather, was great. Next visit I'll get the BBQ.

Papa's is a local Savannah restaurant that serves a variety of seafood and barbecue dishes along with other conventional fare. The Shrimp Tacos are great as is the barbecue. They make their own sauce, too. I've had too many meal there to get more specific other than the latest mentioned above.

My husband ordered this and loved it so we took some home for later. The creamy crab stew was also fantastic. We are from NC so know our bar-b-que and would rate this one right up there with the best. Glad we tried this place and will go back on our next visit to Tybee.

Once you get near the ocean,you have to consider fresh seafood-right? Then this place fills the bill. Located in a strip shopping center, it is a large open space with both booth and table. My wife went for a delicious plate of shrimp and grits-I opted for blackened shrimp with hush puppies, Brunswick stew and a baked sweet potato. Monday... More
