We have been eating at Pappadeaux's restaurants around the country for years and always have had a excellent dining experience regardless of the location. This Pappadeaux's in Phoenix was just great and was as excellent as all of the other locations we have eaten at. The secret to the menu is in ordering the traditional New Orleans style Cajun/Creole specialties... More

Went there recently because I've heard and read many good reviews on the place. I could never justify paying more than 10$ for any plate of dried fish but 28$ was very excessive especially when the fish was dry. The cornmeal breading on the fish gave it flavor but you had to drown it in sauce because it was so... More

Broad choice of seafood and meats in noice but busy location. For lunch I just took this main dish combining an excellent grilled lobster with a filet mignon. Excellent quality/price ratio.

The variety of the menu is great and the the quality of the food is excellent. The seize of the shrimps and scallops is large and that is what I love. We went this year three times and I am anxious to go again in a few weeks. My wife and I typically share one main course and have several... More

Over-priced at best. Even a few breaded chicken fingers on top of French fries is $19! Get real, they can't possibly be importing fresh chicken from New Orleans! If you are a genuine seafood or Cajun lover and don't mind paying through the nose, this is the place for you. But if you are accompanying a seafood lover, but want... More

It has been a while since we visited. We arrived for a late lunch and found the restaurant certainly not as busy as our last dinner here. As usual, the wait staff was very friendly and efficient. We chose to split the clam chowder and the lobster and shrimp salad. Both were very good. We did the split because the... More

Good to great food in a pleasant atmosphere. Alligator really does taste like chicken. We had a family group of 10 in a private room and truly enjoyed the service, as well as a broad selection of decent sized portions.

I took my daughter and son-in-law here for dinner. We also had my two year old grandson. We made reservations for an early dinner, and by the time we left they were filling up quickly. We were seated immediately and all the staff were very friendly. Ordering took a while, as I couldn't decide from the extensive menu. Everything looked... More

Fresh live Maine lobster. I had a steamed 2 pounder. As fresh and sweet as any I've ever had back in the old country. (New York) Very reasonably priced for what it is. Our server was fantastic.
