Took my mom here to try out as we were both hungry. No complaints. Good food, good service, food arrived in a timely manner and tasted good. I think part of our positive experience was the fact we went there about 5:20 PM on a TUE. As we were leaving, the place was beginning to fill up. Though not packed,... More

We've eaten there 3 times in the last 3 years. Not the best BBQ I've ever had (after living in TX), but decent. Wiley's across the street is probably up a notch, also expensive. Everything else is pretty good - but not where we rave and plan our next visit.. They have some microbrew in bottles.

My hubby and I were down here visiting his parents. They brought us here for dinner. What a wonderful experience! I ordered the smoked, chopped BBQ platter, homemade potato salad and homemade pasta salad. Hands down, some of the the best BBQ that I have eaten! The BBQ had a wonderful smoked flavor without being too strong, just the right... More

We ate here while visiting tybee island. The service was great, food was good. It's pricey for the amount of food you get. I ordered the 2 hamburger with fries for almost 9 dollars, came out and they were about the size of a Krystal burger.

Found this restaurant on Google Maps while touring around Savannah on labor Day weekend. Chopped Pork BBQ was flavorful, however the only sauce served or offered was yellow mustard based. The Smoked Beef Brisket was almost cold, somewhat dry and disappointing for what they charge. However, all the side dishes were excellent...coleslaw with a touch of onion, Brunswick stew rich...

While the first cuisinne in the name of this establishment says "BBQ", be sure to try the Fried Shrimp. It's the BEST friend shrimp in Savannah, Georgia. Never disappoints! This visit, I had to try the fried green tomatoes. Now I have TWO huge reasons to go back - OFTEN!

Slow service and mediocre food, tourist trap wannabe. It was better when it was a take out stand. Go next door and eat Mexican the plates always hot.

We visit Tybee a lot and stay several days, and Wilmington Island is where we go out and eat a lot. Over the years, the choices have become fewer and fewer as some of the restaurants we've frequented have closed. Savannah's bad at this ... We have been to Papa's quite a few times. I remember the first time we... More

Was looking for some good BBQ so stopped here. Our waitress was very nice but she was new and didn't know very much and had to keep us waiting while she tried to get answers about almost everything on the menu Instead of sending someone over who knew, said she had to talk to manager who just stood there but...
