Great meal

We had a great meal...super burgers, very yummy fish tacos, kids chicken strips (which were NOT processed, pressed nasty chicken, but real chicken breaded on site) and best of all: deep fried Oreos! Yummy!!

We had dinner here on Saturday night around 5:30 pm. The wait staff was very friendly. The food was terrible. We had the fried portabella mushrooms which were over cooked and tasteless. The three of us ordered hamburgers which had absolutely no flavor and were burnt on the outside. The fries were good. The owner was sitting in the corner on his laptop and when he walked by us he did not acknowledge his guests a... view more

i brought my date to big papa's for dinner about a week ago and we had a great time. the food and service were both top notch!! we both had the meat loaf and it was absolutely delicious. if i didn't know better i would have thought my grandmother was working in their kitchen. we started out with a bowl of their corn chowder. it was easily the best i have ever had. also, i highly recommend you have some of their hom... view more

I hope people aren't totally going by these negitive reviews. We went there 2 times and both times the service was great. Both times the food was great.. Fries just like Gibby's. My friend liked it so much she took her daughter and son in law there. We didn't have any of the experiences that some of the other reviewers said. Maybe they went when they first opened..and that is not always a good thing. Give it a... view more

The portabello mushroom appetizer and the fried pickles were very good even though they were over-salted. The french fries are hand-cut, which is a definite plus! If we EVER go back (doubtful), we will order only apps! We were there for dinner. I ordered the pan-fried whitefish, one of the more expensive items on the menu ($14.99), which came to the table swimming in grease and so salty I couldn't eat it. My husba... view more

What a horrible experience.Ribs were boiled and flavorless, sauce was nasty Would have been much better with a commercial sauce like sweet baby rays than the bland sauce they used..My wifes grilled meatloaf fell apart and was cold and quite bland.Guessing that they used no binder in the recipe. I was expecting a much better show of culinary talent than what we had. Big Papa was roaming around the restaurant. He was w... view more

Nice to have a new, nice place to go in the area. The food was good, the bartender was friendly. Had a problem with an appetizer being a little overcooked but they took it back and replaced it, no questions asked. Lots of TVs so it will be a great place to go to watch games. We will definitely return.

My family and I decided we would go in and give it a try. The servers and bartender seemed to be friendly and greeted us very promptly. However the server that was helping us seemed to be very all over the place, he was very nice but he had no clue what he was doing, he greeted us and took our drink order which took about 10 minutes to receive them, he hurried by our table 4 times before bringing the drinks and take ... view more
