Went to Godfather's for two nights of our weekend visit and both nights enjoyed friendly service and a fantastic live band.

“Perfect ending to your day!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 10, 2012

If you're looking for some super sleek, yuppie, theme bar, you're looking in the wrong place. Godfather's is a place where the local professionals like to go to hang out. The waitresses are all very cute and friendly and remember your name and welcome you with it every time you come back. The drinks are reasonably priced, which is a nice change from many of the hotels and other bars on island. The food is surprisingly good for a bar. The fish tacos are awesome, grilled Mahi Mahi is a favorite and the spicy Poki is not to be missed. I live on Saipan and actually go to Godfather's for dinner quite often. They also have an awesome band that plays every night starting around 9. Godfather's is very much Saipan's version of Cheer's.

“You'll Know if It's Your Kind of Place”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 13, 2012

Let's face it--you're either into dives, or you're not. If the latter is the case, you probably won't be impressed with Godfathers. We were there at the same time as a sub was in town, so we experienced the standard rowdy bunch.

It was always full, but the service seemed to keep up. The drink selection was average, and the bartenders were fairly attentive.

I only ordered food once--Shanghai Lumpia--and they did a pretty good job with it. My friend had sashimi, and the same was the case for it.

Like I said, if you want a calm or nice place, pass this one by. Otherwise, come on in, listen to the band (mostly covers from 70s on), and be prepared for a late night.

“Friendly place for a drink”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 30, 2012

Godfather's has a wide variety of beers. They also serve bar food. It's a friendly place, with nice waitresses and good music. A great place to unwind after work with your friends -- or make new ones.

“The only place on the Island with a decent selection of European drafts”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 17, 2012

Their food isn't bad either. It's one thing to pay $5.00 for a bottle of domestic beer as one usually does here on the Island. But $5.00 for a large pint of of draft Stella or Becks or another European draft is a different matter and is damn well worth it. Great yellow fin sushi and other bar snacks and meals. A cool and relaxing real live expat bar - just like you see in the movies.
