I have been eating at Pappadeaux restaurants for more than 25 years starting while traveling in business to Texas frequently. This restaurant is prototypical of others in the chain. The decor is retro and probably has not been updated in decades. There is an outdoor patio.sitting area. A large... read more

Place stays busy, lack of seafood in area. Been several times and always consistent. Good service and fun atmosphere. Cajun? Well, very toned down and slightly dull. Outdoor patio is good when weather permits.

We went to Pappadeaux's for my Birthday dinner today. I have to admit we hadn't been here in a while and I was really excited and looking forward to the Blackened Catfish with Cheesy Grits. I should have known things had changed when the waiter asked if I wanted 2 or 4 pieces of Catfish. In the past it was... More

While I eaten here in the past this time around was with some old friends. The food was wonderful & our waiter, Patrick S was very attentive to our needs. Great food, & service, Pappadeaux's gets a "thumbs up" all the way.

We came with friends and were blown away with the service and the fresh seafood! The oysters were excellent! The coconut shrimp too. All of our main dishes were divine. From the seafood brochettes to the Mahi Mahi Alexander. We topped it off with their in house homemade banana pudding - to die for! When they say the seafood is... More

We have eaten at the original in Texas, and in AZ and CO. Same quality and ambiance no matter the state. The seafood is my highest priority but, that said, the onion rings are amazing! Plus they seem to have some rule that a customer's ice tea glass should never be empty. Had to skip the Margarita this time but... More

Had a great lunch with customers today at Pappadeaux. The Ahi tuna was exceptional. One of our group had the salmon and it looked great. The service was excellent.

This restaurant chain has the best seafood around. The six of us ordered different dishes and all tasted great. The only negative is the noisy restaurant. Could only talk to the person who I was sitting next too. Couldn't hear the person across the table and we had a small table for six.

Seafood was absolutely delicious! Great for big parties. Big variety of food and wonderfully deserts. Parking is kind of a pain but worth it!
