Consistently good food and good service.
I love the batter fried shrimp....I would normally never order this but it is excellent here. Very large shrimp, very light batter. I usually end up taking half home, portion is large.
Walleye is great pan fried. Partner enjoys the chicken and ribs among other things.
Old school service from experienced servers. Great stop, you can’t go wrong.

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 there again.

Mankato does not feature a plethora of locally owned restaurants, and while some are good — they easily beat most chains — none are particularly inventive or outstanding. (The one exception may be India Palace. And in St. Peter there is the St. Peter Food Coop.) Pappageorge doesn't aspire to be fancy or creative, but it does put out good food for a fair price. We found the calamari appetizer tender and tasty. My seafood chowder was not overly salted — a flaw too often found in most restaurants, particularly Red Lobster. One of us ordered pork chops, which were very moist, flavorful and blessedly not overcooked. Another of us ordered wild mushroom ravioli with a petite filet on top, grilled perfectly rare-to-medium-rare as requested. And I had sea scallops that were slightly crispy on the outside, moist and tender on the inside — again, not overcooked. The only downside was that the rice underneath the scallops was ordinary and way too salty.

Regrettably, the wine list is abysmal, though Pappageorge does serve the beverages of the local Mankato Brewery on tap. And they say they are redoing the wine list shortly.

Went for dinner on a Saturday night, it was packed! Definitely would recommend calling for a reservation on the weekend. Food and drinks were excellent! Steak I had was perfectly moist and tender! The waitress seemed stressed and had too many tables, no attention given to us. Overall it's a really great place to eat, we'll be back!
