Reminded me of a bar in my home town. Everyone knew our name after one time visiting. Loved it so much we had to go back....more than once! Great service!

“Interesting Place, Had a Brooklyn/Manila /Texas Fussion Feel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 July 2012

I have been to Saipan three times in the past two years and visited this place each time. The locals refer to this bar as the haole bar because it mainly caters to middle age white men from the mainland and mainland visitors. This place gets an excellent because it serves Becks Beer on Draft. Actually the place has a Godfather's (as in Mob Boss) theme with pictures of Marlon Brandon and John Gotti along with other famous so called "men of honor". The staff is entirely Filipino with girls in their early 20s to mid 30s wearing short skirts or tiny shorts who shower the customers with attention. Sometimes they even perform a little dance act. All have nice bodies and are cute. Food is average, I had wings and a burger and it was OK but I was glad to have a Becks on draft to chase the food down. Not a lot of women in the place, mainly guys who work on the island and come there to unwind and have Budweisers. The girls all know them by name. I saw a couple of the better looking girls who worked there had gotten married to some of the clients. I did see a girl who clearly worked in the world's oldest profession come in and make a round selling her wares in the place. She left the place and went to a Karaoke place across the street. They had a live band two of the times I went there. By Island standards they are superstars but by mainland standards they are mediocre at best but heck you are in the middle of nowhere so they are as good as you are going to get. I noticed the owner was there and he looked like he cared for his place and pitched in when help was needed at the bar.

“The Watering Hole of Garapan”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 July 2012

Good food and good drink prices. Actually can have a few drinks without breaking the bank which is hard to find on Saipan. Taco Tuesday is pretty great. Being from Texas do not expect too much from the tacos. But they are also a $1, so shut it. Awesome atmosphere. Pretty much the go to bar here.

“Perfect ending to your day!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 July 2012

If you're looking for some super sleek, yuppie, theme bar, you're looking in the wrong place. Godfather's is a place where the local professionals like to go to hang out. The waitresses are all very cute and friendly and remember your name and welcome you with it every time you come back. The drinks are reasonably priced, which is a nice change from many of the hotels and other bars on island. The food is surprisingly good for a bar. The fish tacos are awesome, grilled Mahi Mahi is a favorite and the spicy Poki is not to be missed. I live on Saipan and actually go to Godfather's for dinner quite often. They also have an awesome band that plays every night starting around 9. Godfather's is very much Saipan's version of Cheer's.
