While the first cuisinne in the name of this establishment says "BBQ", be sure to try the Fried Shrimp. It's the BEST friend shrimp in Savannah, Georgia. Never disappoints! This visit, I had to try the fried green tomatoes. Now I have TWO huge reasons to go back - OFTEN!

Slow service and mediocre food, tourist trap wannabe. It was better when it was a take out stand. Go next door and eat Mexican the plates always hot.

We visit Tybee a lot and stay several days, and Wilmington Island is where we go out and eat a lot. Over the years, the choices have become fewer and fewer as some of the restaurants we've frequented have closed. Savannah's bad at this ... We have been to Papa's quite a few times. I remember the first time we... More

Was looking for some good BBQ so stopped here. Our waitress was very nice but she was new and didn't know very much and had to keep us waiting while she tried to get answers about almost everything on the menu Instead of sending someone over who knew, said she had to talk to manager who just stood there but...

Just passing through the area and the teenagers wanted bbq. Food was good. Chicken fingers, bbq combo with ribs, brisket, pulled pork all cooked nicely. Prices reasonable. Service was great; friendly staff.

We went to Papa's twice during our week in Tybee Island. First time for lunch on our way down, and second time with the whole family. We enjoyed the bbq, and all the kids found food that they liked too. Good sized portions.

We have had better BBQ. We ordered two sandwiches and I had to pay for a side of Cole slaw to put on my sandwich. The meat was just okay, the slaw was way too creamy with minimal flavor and the fries were mediocre. Also, the service when we picked it up was horrible - the girl was short and... More

Being from out-of-town, we were looking for a small decent place to get some dinner where we would not have to pay high tourist season prices of Tybee Island. We found Papa's through 'search' read some reviews, and decided to try it out. I had the slab of ribs, w/baked beans & split a baked potato with spouse. She had... More

My sister and I split a flounder & ship (LARGE) plate dinner. They make some really outstanding tartar sauce. The food is above average and the only thing that was not that good was the coleslaw. Way too much mayo which is funny as it isn't usually like that. They have consistent seafood and I like the BBQ there as... More

We had dinner here while on vacation. Our waiter Jimmy was awesome! He was extremely helpful and eager to please. The only drawback I can add is the mustard Bbq sauce. If you do not like mustard please tell them hold the sauce as none of us care for mustard! But Jimmy was an angel and found us some regular... More

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.
