Our table was right next to the men's bathroom. Medium well steak was badly charred and dry. For the price you'd think it would be cooked correctly.

If you are looking for a small, local favorite restaurant, look no further. We have loved every Pappageorge visit we have had (and I have lost count of how many visits.) The food is wonderful and the service is great. We have gone here on...More

Went for a friends birthday and was hesitant as the outside appearance is not what one would expect. Prepare to be surprised by the inside. The food was great, the service was great. The value was better than I was expecting. Would recommend.

We have eaten here twice now and just cannot give it anything other than an average rating. The food was fine, nothing memorable but it wasn't bad either. The bar seemed to struggle as the bartender seemed very inexperienced. I don't believe we will eat...More
