Wait To Go To Eddie Papa's Restaurants, posted by Gladys, a resident of the Country Fair neighborhood, on Apr 13, 2008 at 5:53 am
Have gone twice. Once for lunch-very pleasant experience and then for dinner last night-disaster! The food is excellent, the service in desperate need of improvement for the Saturday night dinner crowd.
Had reservations,and we were seated upon arriving but waited 10 minutes before anyone came to the table, waited another 20 minutes to get drinks. After ordering our meals we had 4 different servers try to serve us someone else's order.....terrible.
Go for lunch a very different experience. If your wanting something other than pizza after your little league game and it's Saturday night go to Eddie Pappas. It's noisy, lot's of children. Avoid seating near the windows next to the paint store.........it's where all the servers line up to get their orders -it's noisy and distracting.

I am also not impressed, my 2 year old sons food was radio active it was so hot and my gumbo was stone cold and bland. My wife said her food wasn't anything to write home about either. The place it self is boring and lacks any atmosphere and very loud. I give it under a year and there will be something else there

I've been there twice for lunch. We ordered different items. It was perfection. It was delicious mahi mahi,with crushed peanut crust cooked to my perfectiona along with purple & white orchards to eat if you wish. I chose to put mine in my hair. Yummy vegies cooked just right. To top it off with the special margaa riter. Service was very attentive. The two ladies next to us come twice a week and get something different every time. They are big supporters of the place Share your desserts.Huge portions make it fun for all...they are HUGEEEEEE.yum

Have been to the restaurant many times and always have left pleased. Owned and operated by a Pleasanton resident, it is easily the most child friendly place in town with attentive service, staff who actually cater to the kids, great food, and let's not forget the cute surprise of cotton candy with each guest check. Based on the weekend crowds, it clearly will be around for the long haul

My wife and I had dinner here with our family. We are from out of state but had heard good things while watching the grandson's little league game. We had great service, it was very busy that night but we weren't in a hurry and don't like to be rushed anyway. We all enjoyed our choices and there was a lot of sampling from eachothers plates! The owner and the chef both came by to introduce themselves and check on the food and service. Good business practice!

We went to dinner mid week after a business meeting.Yummy food. Attentive owner. Friendly service. Lots of kids and it seemed like many people knew each other.I saw many different items that I'd like to try next time we are in the area. Or, we'll make it a point to go back to Pleasanton again just to go to this restaurant.

I have been there many times and always enjoy the meal and service. The one time I had trouble I just told Eddie about it and he had a talk with the server. Always tell Eddie or Neal of any problems and it is taken care of. Also! I love it that my dog can eat in the patio and they give him a little package of dog biscuits from Murphy's Paw. I always feel so welcome!

Eddie Papa's might have had some early teething issues, but it is worked out now and the food and service are _excellent_. Eddie's is on Hopyard, just north of Stoneridge, between Chili's and the Marriott Courtyard.
Eddie's serves regional American cuisine, from jambalaya to scrapple. Excellent breakfasts on the weekends, too. The wife and I eat there regularly, and have never been disappointed.
I see from the comments back in April that the service wasn't quite dialed in. It is now, and you don't want to miss this place. I'd say it's the best restaurant in Pleasanton; certainly the most interesting.
