We stopped here on our way to Nashville, IN since it is right off I-65. Waited about 5 minutes for a table around 6 PM. Greeted immediately. There is something for everyone on the extensive menu. I had the salmon salad, very delish. Service was prompt and food did not take very long. We were back on the road quickly.

Great food with a fun atmosphere. A variety of menu choices!! My personal favorite is the grilled cheese dunkers and tomato soup!! Strawberry cake is delightful too!

One of our go-to options, Papa's has a great menu with plenty of option to fit your hunger. Good salads, wraps, sandwiches, burgers, etc., and of course you can't go wrong with the grilled cheese dunkers. It's a good place for families, and they are accommodating for toddlers.

We went as a family - recommended by a local hotel. everything in the menu looked amazing. Ordered the stakes and they were tender, moist and cooked to perfection. I would definitively come back I am in town. Worth giving it a try.

Awesome stop! Close to 65, great food and service. In a strip mall so the atmosphere is not a strong point but everything else makes up for it!

We each had a burger and they were excellent. And the fries were terrific. Also a good selection of craft beer. Tables are a mix of high and low and are close together. Not high dining but a great family restaurant.

Family dinner out...we had everything from nachos to burgers to sirloin steak. Everything was well cooked and everyone was more than happy with the quality and taste. The decor and environment was nothing to speak of but the staff were all awesome.

There were seven of us in our party and we each ordered something different. Each one of us loved our dinners, which were so tasty. My salmon salad was the best.

We travel from Indy to Columbus once a month to visit family and eat at Papa's Grill. This last visit was disappointing. I ordered Bison Burger with raw broccoli. Bison was to be cooked with no pink inside ( they said that meant well done ) Broccoli came over cooked, and Bison was burnt. Burnt to the point it was... More

Went to Papa's Grill as it was recommended, and we were not dissappointed, just down the road from our hotel, service was great, nice relaxed atmosphere. I got the potatoe soup and grilled cheese sticks, both very good, everyone at my table enjoyed all the food. Will go back if I'm in the area again.

Thank Piper226
