My family visited Papa's Bar and Grill on a Saturday afternoon, shortly after the noon hour. It was busy for the time of day, but there were still several empty tables. Our waitress arrived promptly, taking our drink orders and providing menus.
We did not order appetizers, but went straight to the entrees. My daughter ordered the chicken tender appetizer as her meal with a side order of dirty rice. I chose the seafood combo (fried catfish and shrimp) with a stuffed potato. My husband got the "Big C" burger and fries.
Unfortunately, neither my husband nor I cared for the food. The catfish tasted as if it had been fried in old oil. The shrimp was over-breaded and tough. My husband's burger tasted as if it were just "food grade" and the fries tasted fishy and were soggy. I did think the stuffed potato was excellent, as was the fried pistolette. My daughter had no complaints on the chicken tenders.
The bright point of our visit was the very friendly and attentive staff.
Overall, I would not recommend Papa's Bar and Grill. We will select a different restaurant when we return to Natchitoches.
