4 of us Dined. 2 steaks were ok. Lasagne went back as it was far too dry. The burger dry, over cooked and didn't get sent back as I was hungry. Out of ten I'd score it 3 maximum. Never again

Can't select good but giving an average rating would be unfair. Four of us had breakfast/brunch all good. Food good and service very good.

Excellent restaurant for date nights, lunches and breakfasts. All the dishes are fantastic. Service is great. Love the steaks. Always promptly greeted upon entry. During busy periods it is best to book your table in advance to avoid waiting for a seat.

Papa Browns Grill; A recipe for success.
Papa Browns Grill is a unique, purpose built, family restaurant in a superb location. It is ideally situated beside the beautiful and historical Carrickfergus Castle and famous Marina. We have the simple belief that good food, well delivered in a stylish environment is a ‘recipe for success'.

The diverse range of customers who dine in Papa Browns will notice the relaxed, friendly and fun atmosphere, which is created by our superb décor, dimmed lighting, modern music and our visual large screen playing music videos. It is the perfect spot for any social gathering, from family celebrations to a romantic meal for two or even just a coffee with friends.

We are open 7 days a week from 9am until late, providing an extensive menu of delicious food for breakfast, lunch and dinner including a children’s section. We have recognised that there are a large number of people with specific dietary requirements and provide easy access to vegetarian and celiac menus. Gift vouchers are able to be purchased and a takeaway service is also available. We also have our own private off road parking which is a desirable feature.

To make a reservation or enquiry please telephone the
restaurant, email or call in. Papa Browns is the perfect
location for any event whether business, pleasure or
