Papa's House is back. Eat, enjoy, repeat is the motto for Papa's House. After an absence of nearly three months the newly remodeled restaurant opened in mid-November. Originally known as Papa's the restaurant is back with a new owner, Dan Desmond. Pizza is still a staple of the new menu. Breads, sauces and pizza dough are handmade, as they should be. Desmond said, "We're trying to keep the legacy of the original owners going." Papa's House is open every day except Monday. Stop by and try a pizza, salad, sandwich or burger from the new menu.
