Excellent food and service. I had the Brisket and Flounder platter, my wife had grilled shrimp. Both were excellent. Gumbo appetizers we had were great. Serivce was also great. Highly recommend this restaurant if you visit Tybee Island.

We love Papa's BBQ sandwiches and always stop in when we come to town. We first started coming to the restaurant in 1990 and the BBQ sauce is still incredible. We will keep coming back as long as the restaurant is in Savannah!

The food was unremarkable. The service was fairly good however. I've had better bbq elsewhere but in a pinch it will do.

Nice atmosphere, great tasting food, $15 is a bit steep for only 10 shrimp, knowing they are caught fresh just a few miles away.

We chose the restaurant because it was local. Sat there for a good 15 minutes-no water served nor a waitress to take our orders. The floor manager greeted every table around us except ours. Another group was seated and in less than 5, water was...More
