FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
From smart questions to the not-so-smart questions, we get them all. To help us help you, we have
compiled the ones we get the most often. Still got a question? Send us a message.
What time do you stop serving food?
Our main kitchen is open from 11am to 9pm every day. On Tuesdays, we continue serving tacos until 10pm.
What are your age restrictions?
Pappy’s is open to all ages except on our club nights (Thursday, Friday and Saturday after 9pm), which are 21 and over. Exceptions apply during popular sporting events, during which we will allow minors to stay until the conclusion of the game.
What is your dress code on club nights (Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights)?
Pull your pants up! Put your hoods down! No grills, no solid white oversized T-shirts. You don't need to be in formal attire--simply look good for a good night!
Do you take phone orders?
We do indeed! Please allow ten minutes for your phone order to be processed and prepared. Call us at 510-405-1000 during operating hours.
Do you take reservations?
As a general rule, yes. However, for days on which we are showing big sporting events (such as the World Series or Cal football games), seating is first come, first serve. For larger groups or private events, please see Host an Event.
What is your debit/credit card minimum?
Our debit/credit card minimum is $5 for both restaurant and bar purchases. We do not accept cards for orders under $5.
We do not charge a transaction fee.
Do you accept the Cal 1 Debit card?
Indeed we do. Go Bears!
Are you busy right now?
Our guess for how busy we will be when you get here is as good as yours. We have over 8,500 square feet, including our spacious lower level and our outdoor courtyard, all equipped with high-definition TV's and audio. No matter how busy we are, we should be able to accommodate your needs!
Do you allow pets?
We allow service dogs inside Pappy's (we reserve the right to ask patrons to verify with paperwork). Pets are allowed only in our courtyard, and not inside Pappy’s. All pets must be on leash, well-mannered and never unattended.
Are you guys showing [insert sports event here]?
Pappy’s is proud to have the East Bay’s best coverage of all NCAA, NFL, NBA, MLB, NHL and FIFA sporting events. Simply request a specific game with the bartender or cashier. We are able to play most games, but please be patient with us as we can often get several requests at once. For the more obscure sporting events, we recommend calling ahead of time.
Do you show pay-per-view?
We unfortunately cannot show events on pay-per-view channels.
Do you have a lost and found?
Items found during operating hours are categorized at the end of the day and stored in our lost and found. Credit and debit cards lost or left at the bar are stored securely in our safe. Please inquire via phone or through our cashiers/bartenders after 11am. Pappy’s is not responsible for unfound or stolen items.
