Papa Hughie and Mama Joy established Papa Hughieís Seafood World in 1976. The seafood marketplace and bohemian dining experience has delighted thousands of customers over the last 40 years. Following the great success of Seafood World, Papa Hughie and his son Troy Gangor decided to open a sister restaurant in April of 2014 called Papaís Raw Bar. Papa Hughieís Seafood World and Papaís Raw Bar are two completely different concepts but both under the same owners. Papaís Raw Bar is a unique gastropub that serves 110 craft beers and up to 70 different wines. Their motto is ìEat, drink and be localî. At Papaís Raw Bar, they concentrate on local caught fresh fish and unique food items like Hibachi fried rice, gourmet tacos, alligator, and oysters. With their separate hibachi menu, you get to customize your meal and eat fresh without sharing a table with strangers like you would at Benihanas. You get your choice of protein (with options like scallops and mahi-mahi), Japanese julienne vegetables, fried rice, and Papaís famous Yum Yum sauce that customers love to put on everything. There is Happy Hour to enjoy every day at Papaís Raw Bar, along with different specials each day of the week. At the end of the night, ìWe close when the conch shell blows,î Troy explained. Papaís Raw Bar also features live music! Join them every third Sunday of the month for an island style party featuring live reggae music, delicious sangria and special discounts on island beers. ìMy dad makes his famous Bahamian Conch Stew, a recipe he picked up when he lived on the island for 12 years,î said Troy. Troy explained that ìOur house is built on conch and stone crabs.î They have their own stone crab and conch boats they purchase from and ship nationwide. At Papa Hughieís Seafood World and Papaís Raw Bar, they always buy the whole fish so they can determine they are offering the highest quality products. Their fish is fresh from their boats to their table. Have Papa Hughie’s cater your next event! From small parties to big weddings, they are happy to provide for any event in the Tri-County area.
