Cajun/seafood restaurant with very knowledgeable and friendly staff. Our only mistake was not making a reservation, although the expected 1 hour wait turned into only about 30 minutes which we spent at the bar mingling with very friendly patrons also waiting for tables or eating appetizers. We had alligator bites, gumbo, breaded shrimp, soft shell crabs, steak and bacon wrapped... More

Pappadeaux is a combination cajun/seafood restraurant. A big noisy place that has tables spread just far enough apart that it's comfortable. We had a table in the middle of the room and it was easy to hear the others at the table. Can get expensive if you add appetizers, desserts, or additional sides, but the quality is very good. I...

This place rocks. We went around 1:30pm thinking it'd be between lunch/dinner and the place was packed. We sat at the bar and enjoyed everything this place had to offer.

Pappadeaux is, in my opinion, one of the best places for fresh seafood in the Chicago suburbs. The seafood I have gotten there has always been fresh and prepared correctly (and I go there frequently!) If you like Cajun/Louisiana-style food, this is the place for you!

Stopped in on a Friday night around 6:30---expecting a long wait--- and got one.... 90 minutes. Place was packed but fortunate to find a seat at the bar after 30 minutes and enjoyed some very tasty house cocktails. Also tried the fried alligator appetizer while waiting & it was excellent. Finally got our table and had terrific seafood chowder as... More

As has been tradition for the last few years, my boyfriend wanted to have his birthday dinner at Pappadeaux. Knowing that they get amazingly busy on weekends and don't take reservations after 5pm we were nervous about how long our group of 10 would have to wait. A few of us showed up right around 5:15 to put our name... More

I visited this place on January 3, 2014. I ordered a drink called, SITTING SIDEWAYS, which is a stronger version of the Swamp Thing. It has about 6 different liquors and is sooo good. For dinner I ordered the ATLANTIC SALMON YVETTE, which was absolutely amazing. My boyfriend ordered the Big Bay Platter (Grilled shrimp, Caribbean lobster tail & shrimp... More

My family came in from out of state and wanted to go specifically to Pappadeux. We went on 28Dec14 and had a great dinner. But... Our server or someone from the restaurant decided to treat themselves to an EXTRA $40 tip, totaling their tip to $80! We had an $185 (including tax) dinner and left a $40 cash tip). And... More
