Best seafood in the Valley

We love this place. Normally from 5-8 it is about an hour or two wait, but we slide in after 9 with no wait. Excellent food and staff. A valley must visit for dinner.

Made a suicide mission to go to a seafood restaurant on a Friday during Lent. Amazingly the wait was 1/3 the time we expected. Ample seating on the patio with a guitar player and the fact they would text us when our table was ready turned the wait time into part of a great experience. We were free to roam... More

My boyfriend and I went to Pappadeaux's on his last visit from Florida. We both love oysters and New Orleans, but he didn't think a freat seafood experience in Arizona was even possible since it had to be flown in! Well, we decided to start with an order of oysters. They brought them out and we both were amazed at... More

This is a huge restaurant. The prices are a bit on the high side, but more than justified by the huge portions. It is really good for seafood. It's not very personal and the service is slapdash. It depends on what you want out of a restaurant.

Friends that lived nearby had wanted to go there, so we did. They had both excellent food and service. There were a wide variety of choices, to everyone's satisfaction (including children's menu). I'm only sad that they have no restaurants in Washington State!! It is on the pricier side, but well worth it!

We arrived at 7:30 pm on Friday night and there was 45-60 minute wait. This place is one of those restaurants that's worth the wait & there's a lot of space in the garden patio area for people to wait it out. Overall, the food is flavorful without being overly done. We had the calamari for appetizer which was amazing!... More

We aren't so often on the West side so when we were, we decided to eat at Pappadeaux's. Had oysters and great fish!! It is always busy no matter when we have been there so plan accordingly. Early helps!! Food and service is great! It is not cheap so you should know that before you go, but well worth it... More

I'm not sure how they do this so well,so far from the sea. An excellent meal with juicy oysters to start and fried catfish & shrimp (me), crab cakes (my companion). The menu was dauntingly large but our server helped us through with useful information. There's a large dining room and the place was lively. A pleasure to dine there.... More

Our family came here for happy hour (3 to 6:30) and dinner at the patio seating area. We had the alligator, orange shrimp, Costa Rica Mahi Alexander. The food is so flavorful. Bread is freshly baked. Service is great as well. Great find in Arizona.

This is one of my all time favorite restaurants. The food is delicious!!!! This place is always busy and there is always a wait so I highly recommend you to call ahead and make a reservation you will get in much quicker. One every visit the service is friendly and speedy, and I never leave hungry.
