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.

Really good food. Inexpensive.

This is a great restaurant. The portions are very large. Food quality is quite good. The prices are low. And the service is great! Highly recommended for a family meal.

Everything here was fantastic, from the crab dip to the shrimp and tilapia. And for the love of god, you've got to try the key lime pie! It was like a creamy cross between cheesecake and key lime pie. Atmosphere isn't anything fancy, but the food was great.

In town for a work event. Food was good. Service not so good. Sunday night and the place is packed, but only 3 wait staff. I waited way too long for tea refills and was only checked on once during my entire meal. I will be back if ever in Savannah again. No complaints at all with food, they were... More

The grits are so creamy and melt in your mouth. Shrimp is perfectly cooked. They make their own barbeque sauce and hot sauce and it is the bomb!! You can purchase your own too! Love to go there every time I am in town.

We happened upon Papa's last year and have never looked back. A last resort for our hungry crew is now our favorite place to eat anywhere. The BBQ snob of the family hasnt found another place that can match Papa's! In fact, all BBQ is now compared to it. And the BBQ sauce - a mustard base- is the only... More

We have eaten at papas many times and at different times of the day we have never been disappointed! Papas is consistently good, service is great and the atmosphere is family friendly. You may even see Papa himself there as we have on a few occasions!

Our waitress Trish did a great job taking care of us. The food was excellent I had the barbecue my wife had the seafood. The only warning I would give is the barbecue is mustard base. I really liked it but some people wouldn't it is the only one they have. And portions are really. really large

We found this place because it was too crowded on Tybee Island. We had little ones and needed to eat fast, and we wanted seafood. The adults ordered the beef brisket, flounder, and crab cakes. Everything was safe. It was good, but not great or memorable. The Cajun fries weren't very spicy, for instance. We didn't have a long wait... More

First off I just want to say the staff is great and the place is super clean! The food is just not that good - my wife had BBQ ribs which tasted like they came from Sonnys - you have Wileys across the street. I had the friend flounder platter - it was OK - fries are great - baked... More

Awesome food and you get more 'bang for your buck' here. Our server was very attentive and informative. The location isn't as great because you can miss it but it's well worth the trip.
