Have been twice this past month once dining In, and once getting To-Go. Both were very good experiences. It's known for the BBQ but the shrimp dinner was very good and my wife likes their salads. Brunswick Stew also very good. The BBQ is good but be aware it is a mustard based sauce.

My son and I recently went to Savannah for Spring Break and were excited to try some of the great barbecue the area has to offer. We got out of the historic district and found Papa's Bar-B-Que and Seafood. I had the beef brisket sandwich on 2 buns. Essentially, they were slider size and absolutely perfect. There was just enough... More

No place to park, so we parked at the end of the building. Walked in and place was packed, but had one table left for us. Within minutes of ordering we had our BBQ! Very fast, great waitress, very good BBQ! We will be back next time through.

As is my custom, when I visit a new area, I seek out local places to eat instead of the chains. I was seated promptly by the host and my server took my drink order very quickly. I had the small shrimp lunch, grilled. The meal came with two sides. I had crinkle fries and coleslaw. The coleslaw had a... More

Went there with family and had another great dinner. Fried shrimp was great, best in town. Smoked salmon salad for my wife was good as well.

This place is overlooked by most tourists. It is tucked away in a shopping center off the main road on Wilmington Island. But the locals know it and love it. And they should. Menu has grown a lot since the early days across the street, but they still do a great job on all the items they serve. Service was... More

We happened on Papa's through a recommendation from a local and are mighty glad we took his advice. My crab bisque (chowder?) was quite good but as a Marylander, I wanted a bit more crab meat in it. My wife's barbecue was outstanding, served on toast with a mustard-based sauce that was delicious. She considers it the best barbecue she's... More

Frank and Judy Ouzts own and operate a favorite destination in Savannah on the main drag to Tybee. You'll pass a lot of great restaurants before you get there, but the wise diner bent on great food at a great price will not be disappointed by anything coming out Frank's galley. Barbecue made them famous, fresh local seafood makes them... More

Had their crab chowder, it was good but not great. It could've used a little more crab. Had their wings; they were excellent. Now for some Key lime pie. Service was great and prices were in line with all the other restaurants in the area. Will come back again.

Thank Luavaila

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.
