Excellent food and service. Be prepared to take home food. Especially the 11 oz blackened Salmon. If anything it is to much food.

First time at Pappadeaux. Arrived 10 mins early with reservations and waited 20 anyway. Hmm. Our server, Reno, arrive about 7 mins after that. He dropped off water and turned to leave but we had waited long enough to know we wanted the Oyster Duo for an app. He tried to leave again before we could order drinks. Not a... More

We haven't been here in over 2 years so decided to come back. The food has always been good and it hadn't changed. You really can't go wrong ordering seafood here as it always appears to be fresh. I know, we are in the middle of a desert and talking about fresh seafood. Our service folks were again fantastic and... More

I started my late lunch with soda without ice. That was served with half glass of ice. Not the best start of service being attentive although the ice issue is nation wide in US. I received refill with correct way. Getting to a point having my order in took 15 min wait. I took mussels with Caesar salad starter. Getting... More

Things started out great but soon went sideways. After the wine and appetizer the real meals never appeared. Then our fish came half raw - then in 15 nminutes it came cooked. We did receive a $100 credit card for another visit but that hardly made up for the screw-ups. Hard to recommend this place - honestly.

This place is always jam-packed with people for the right reasons: The food is awesome and the prices are in line. Try the Gulf Oysters. They are fat and delectable. The mixed seafood grill is huge and can easily feed two. Great fast atmosphere with a lot of wait staff to keep you satisfied. We recommend this place highly but... More

We were getting together with another couple. We waited 35 minutes for a table, the first sign the experience was not going to be that great, I counted 8 tables that were available, which meant they didn't have enough staff to cover, so they weren't seating people. . We asked one of the servers for silverware, when they didn't return,... More

We came back from Sedona and stopped to eat. The restaurant is HUGE. It's noisy and at times, it was hard to hear our dining partners. The food is OUTSTANDING. It was a tad pricey. We were four people who split entrees. No alcohol and the bill was still near $150. But GREAT food.

Pappadeaux Seafood Kitchen, in Phoenix Arizona has a bayou feel. In the middle of the desert is the oasis Pappadeaux'. Our party of seven were seated before our reservation time. The server was attentive, knew the menu, and was able to get everyone's order correct, the first time. The menu, ambiance, and music will leave one believing New Orleans has... More
