Always a joy to eat here. Just walking in helps set the anticipation of delicious food. Today, I had the salmon with ginger. It was wonderful!!

This place looks like it will be really crowded from the outside, since the parking lot is pretty much full (but you will always find a space). Don't be deceived - the interior is massive and there's a great outdoor area to sit as well. The staff was all very friendly, our waiter was responsive and very pleasant, and the... More

I must admit that when our work dinner was planned for Pappadeux, I was skeptical. I'm not a huge fan of Cajun food. We had a party of eleven which caused a few issues, but nothing horrible and by 6:30 pm the restaurant was packed, so service was a wee bit slow, but everything else was perfect. The appetizers were... More

This place is amazing, took about an hour to get in to get seated. Service was good and friendly. Their menu is full of fish and seafood dishes. It was hard to decided what to get. They also had steaks and chicken if you don't like seafood. Would highly recommend to anyone near the north Atlanta area. Will go back... More

During a recent road trip from Chicago to Florida, we stopped for the night near Atlanta. By accident, we found Pappadeaux and were delighted! All of the food was excellent and the service was outstanding. Highly recommended!

Food was good - seafood salad was nice but the dressing was a little bland and the cup of soup was a very small cup for the $7 price. I eat here for dinner a lot (and would rate my experiences a 5) but wanted to try lighter fare for lunch and was not impressed with my choices. Service was... More

Ate here during business travel and it was very good. The accompanying lobster portion (hardly any) was disappointing but the food and service was very good. I'd definitely go back again!

Pappadeaux, while part of a chain of restaurants, should not be dismissed as a basic seafood place. This gem in the Windy Hill corridor just east of I-75 in Marietta is definitely worth a visit. It offers some of the most consistently great seafood and Cajun inspired dishes that are wonderfully presented and tastefully prepared. The menu is exstinsive running... More

We had stopped for the night in Smyrna on our way from Florida back to Michigan and asked at the hotel desk for a restaurant recommendation. The desk clerk unequivocally recommended the seafood at this restaurant. I had grilled sea bass with acorn squash and my wife choose the coconut shrimp appetizer. They were both terrific. Stop here. You won't... More
