It was difficult to find a good restaurant in the Larne Carrickfergus area so we decided on Papa Browns having driven past it on numerous occasions. Warm welcome and a range of food to cater for most tastes. The quality of the food was good the only problem, if it can be described as one, was there was too just... More

Had dinner here last night, it's a typically American style diner, service was friendly and efficient, food was well portioned and really tasty, nicely presented and very good indeed. Our party had two different style of burgers and a chicken wrap - all really good! Reasonable priced, and nice staff. Only gripe - found the dining area cold, it was... More

Whilst staying in Carrickfergus I visited here. I had the Brisket which was a huge portion and to much for me to get through. Lovely staff and helpful. Seating is basic more like sitting in a cafe but this didn't deter from the food.

We went with our 3 girls (7,4,4). It is a very suitable for families with young kids with colouring, plastic glasses and small cutlery. Food is good with wide selection on both the adults and kids menu. The only negative was having to ask a few times for water and extra serviettes.

Lovely warm place with high ceilings and great windaes. I had the bangers and mash. The only fault was the sauce a wee bit sweet for me. Prices are okay. Noticed their Christmas menu and it's great value for money. IMHO this place ain't a five star it's four and a hawf!
