The restaurant is very warm and friendly. The outside waiting area has a nice fountain and good sitting space so even with a wait it is a good place to be. The interior feels a lot like New Orleans. The service was excellent and the food was very fine.

Fabulous Mahi! Will return for that alone. Would advise not to sit close to bar area at happy hour time, can't hear yourself think! Don't know if our server was new or just a little overwhelmed. Had a vague knowledge of the menu. I don't like anything with heat spice so she recommended the acorn squash side. It did have... More

I absolutely love seafood! We traveled outside of Chicago on our trip this month to this restaurant and I'm glad we did. Our waitress helped us to make our dinner selection and her recommendations were excellent. I chose the salmon dish with opaloosa (I'm sure th at is misspelled) sauce and it was delicious. My husband chose the lobster tails.... More

We came to Chicago for our anniversary with another couple. Pappadeaux is always a necessity when we go. There was a long wait to get seated but it was well worth it. I always get the Pappadeaux seafood platter because its like eating 3 meals for 3 bucks. I always take a bunch home. We were enjoying the atmosphere and... More

We dined on the patio on a sunny afternoon, and the food and atmosphere made it a great experience. The chef came to the table because I'm allergic to shellfish, and then made sure my entre was oven roasted.

This was the biggest family meal I've ever had. It was like going to your Aunt's House and sitting next to a Cousin and chatting about your meal, travel and everything in between. The five of use are family but every one who sat next to us became family too! The halibut, blackened catfish, shrimp ettouffe and pasta Mardi Gras... More

While in town for business, this restaurant was recommended to me by several people. I visited in July and the outside waiting area and outside seating area was decorated with large planters of flowers, very pretty. Inside is a nice sized bar, very open and not tucked into a corner. The inside had an open floor plan and the seating... More

My son really wanted to go here for his birthday. Our food was average. We informed them that we were celebrating his birthday and they did nothing, while tables around us were being brought some kind of browie with a candle we were only offered to order dessert. Lame!

We were staying nearby, found the reviews of this place right here on TripAsvisor. I am still swooning over how good the food was! I had crab cakes and the Andouille gumbo, BF had the tilapia with shrimp and it was all wonderful. Beautiful indoors but even more so on the huge patio, ala the French Quarter in New Orleans...
