At best, food was average. Burger seemed like mass produced patty. Served burned and crispy. Sent back. Replacement burger still burnt. Is a hamburger patty supposed to crunch? Friendly service.

Stopped in with some friends for a margarita after a day of walking tours. We ordered the appetizer sampler which was fantastic. We enjoyed our drinks and food and the wait staff was very attentive. This is a great place to just relax and enjoy sometime with friends.

Omg the steaks here....you can smell them cooking for the street. They are so amazingly good. Next door to Mama's Oyster House, which is owned by the same person.

I have traveled all around Louisiana, and I know true Cajun food. Papa's has some of the best! I had the stuffed shrimp and thought they were perfect! My friend had the swiss mushroom burger and said it was the best burger she has had yet!

Has great fried seafood,especially the poboys. Has bar, but some go just for the food. Take out cups for drinks.

We tried the meat pies here first! My daughter ending liking them here better, even though they are SHIPPED in as to hand-made. The burgers and sea food are great also!

A nice local place with good choices on its menu. Had the meat pies as our appetizer & they were so good. Hot & full of flavor, a great introduction to this local favorite. Good beer selection, just a comfortable, at ease place to get a great meal.

We always go to Mama and Papas for food and music when we go the Jazz Fest. The food is very good, the service is great, the atmosphere is wonderful and the band is good as well. We love going here.

To be fair... The beer is very cold and the service is good. The food was meh... Straight out of the freezer and not very good. It wasn't terrible, but I would save my taste buds for another establishment on the River.
