Our Story

Eat, Drink, & Be Local

Papa’s Raw Bar is a Casual, Island style, laid back but professional, friendly, very familiar and comfortable restaurant. We love our customers and love seeing familiar faces on a daily basis.

With over 40 years of experience in the seafood industry, we have built a great relationship with our community, employees, vendors and fisherman. We have our own fishing boats, specializing in stone crabs, conch and fresh fish so you can trust that your food is nothing but the freshest.

Providing our customers with a great quality experience is very important to us. We thrive on being the talk of the town and being an enjoyable place to go to. We stand by giving you quality drinks and food that is always delivered fresh overnight from our boats to your table.

Our passion for serving fresh seafood, being a Florida “go to” local hotspot, and bringing smiles to our customers faces is what makes us enjoy what we do so much. Stop by for dinner, drinks, happy hour, local events, live music, catering services and so much more. We look forward to seeing you!

A Family Tradition

After nearly 40 years operating their popular Seafood World, it was Hugh & Joy Ganter’s son,Troy, who first suggested they needed a bar. It helped that the spot next door had just been vacated by a Thai/sushi joint. Troy’s idea grew into what’s best described as a combination of a Key West-style tavern and a hip gastropub. The 17 month old Papa’s Raw Bar is tiny, but there’s room for overflow in the adjoining catering facility called the Bimini Room.
Papa’s Raw Bar is a shorts-and-jeans kind of place, with something for everyone. It all starts with some of the freshest seafood in South Florida. The Ganters have fishing boats in the Bahamas, guaranteeing a steady supply of fresh conch among other delicacies. From the big Sushi & Ceviche menu, Fried Rice and the Most Interesting Tacos, Papa’s Raw Bar has everything the entire family will enjoy.
