This is an excellent seafood restaurant, but be prepared to spend some money. The wait is long but so worth it.

Pappadeaux is a Cajun Seafood Treat. The Cajun dishes are my favoite. The kids love the fried seafood so we are always happy whenever we go to Pappadeaux. Do get the Gumbo as it is prepared to perfection. I try to get something different each time I go. There is a nice bar where you can sit and enjoy a... More

I've been coming to this location since 1999 and keep returning. I'm a transplant from the Gulf Coast and Pappadeaux has the best seafood gumbo anywhere. I work in nearby Oak Brook and treat myself to lunch here from time to time. The gumbo and salad lunch combo with their hot French bread is yummy. I also use this restaurant... More

My family loves this restaurant and are lucky enough to live within an hour of it, so although we don't get there alot, we get there at least a handful of times a year. And it is always really, really good. And we always leave there really, really stuffed. We love the oyster and crawfish fondue as an appetizer. It's... More

Had a casual business dinner there because my client liked the idea of having some cajun styled cuisine. The food was ok, but as billed it was cajun. He liked it, but I can't see myself going back anytime soon. Outside the front door, tons of people were smoking and that was the only entrance...kind of a bad way to... More

Had company visit from Arkansas and we took them to Pappadeaux for dinner. Started out with Bloody Mary's and oysters in the halve shell. Ended with an assortment of shrimp and other great choices.

I highly recommend making a reservation. It was delightful to walk in & not have a long wait. So many delectable choices & everything was delicious! The spinach dip w/ the cheesy bread was super tasty. Drinks - some type of peach or mango Bellini was perfect. The stuffed shrimp, catfish, and bacon wrapped shrimp was super yummy. The service...

At last I have a restaurant to go to when I can't get to New Orleans. I found the food at this gem to be excellent. I had oysters on the half shell, seafood gumbo and crayfish etouffee over dirty rice. The food was very tasty, oysters very fresh, gumbo had what tasted to me like authentic New Orleans gumbo....
