Best Seafood I've ever had !!!!

The food was wonderful and the drinks were to die for. I went there with some old friends and we had a ball. That place holds a special place in my heart now because that was such a wonderful night.

I was in town on business and in the mood for seafood. I have eaten at this chain many times and really never had a bad meal. I normally go with the blackened Costa Rican mahi mahi but since I was in Texas I went with the redfish. I ordered it blackened with the creamy grits and it was amazing.... More

Wow, they said it was good but OMG. A bit pricey, but when you go to a restaurant like this with that kind of service, you pay for it. We will be back next year for sure.

Decided to try Happy Hour one more time. Sat in the bar for almost 15 minutes and never got waited on. And it was only 4:30 in the afternoon, this happened once before and we also walked out. Guess we are done for good. Apparently the only way to get waited on in a timely manner is to sit AT... More

They have something for every pocketbook. You can spend as much as you like. I highly recommend the Caribbean lobster! It's probably one of the best, not to mention the largest, I've ever had. Every time we go there it's packed, so call ahead for reservations, if you can.

Overall, I love Pappadeaux, however it seems like about every other time I go to eat there, it is a little too spicy...different cooks I guess preparing the orders. I love their fried crawfish and onion rings, but you should order a salad or something to balance out the fried foods if you order both. Convenient to the stadiums (Rangers... More

A popular restaurant in the North Texas area that has above average quality seafood and other items of food. Always busy and reservations usually needed or helpful. Of Course, because of the location, quality and portions, it is also very pricy and we have seen poor service on some busy times. The one surprise to me is this is a... More

We stopped for early dinner after visiting Cowboy stadium. Easy to find and lots of parking in rear. We were seated quickly and asked for table by window. I ordered Crawfish Trio and cup of Gumbo. The portions were huge, taste and temperature were great. I could not finish it all - we should have split it between us. She... More

Instead of spending a fortune at the ballgame (Cowboys or Rangers) get to Pappadeaux's and eat a great meal. Prices are realistic but the portions are huge....you could easily share the main meal and grab an appetizer....that's what me and Abby did! Of course, we did get something at the Ranger game....couldn't resist :)

Good food and service was outstanding! The house Reisling was an excellent choice. I had the sea bass special and will definitely order it again!
