“Good Prime Rib - harried atmosphere”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

This was the first time we made to this location despite wanting to for a while. It was a Wednesday evening and we arrived fairly early for pre-concert dining. Although there was no wait for seating, the wait staff seemed over-stretched from the beginning. Our waiter was literally running his butt off trying to keep up so the atmosphere was not at all relaxing. Our meals were very good and side vegetables very well prepared which is something I find many steak houses seem to overlook. Pappas is noted for their excellent Greek salad as well. Since the food was good, I think we may try it again to see if we just hit it on an off night but this visit just wasn't the leisurely date meal we had envisioned. By time we left, there were long waits to get in, many people crammed around small lobby and wait area and any pretense of relaxing atmosphere gone.

“Great service and great food”
Reviewed April 2, 2013

We had passed Pappa's a couple of times with the intention to dine there at least once while in Clearwater Beach. When we finally did make it there for dinner, we were pleasantly greeted by friendly waitstaff and thoroughly enjoyed a delicious meal of BBQ pork. If we were to return to the area, we would definitely make plans to return to Pappas!

“Relaxing atmosphere”
Reviewed March 26, 2013

This place is a short drive from our house so we go there often. The service is fast and the atmosphere is relaxed. The menu is not limited, but tastes good. I've ordered a few different things and most were what I was expecting. The Key Lime pie is VERY good. Last time we were there the waiter was sort of MIA and looked lost but we still got everything we ordered. I will go back there again.
