Excellent Seafood

All of the Pappa's restaurants are excellent and Pappadeaux is no exception. They consistently have excellent seafood and I love their french bread. If fact if you are not careful it is easy to fill up on bread. Their portions are very generous so you will not leave hungry.

We have visited Pappadeaux in the George Bush Airport in Houston (upstairs near Gate E2) and have never been disappointed. Our latest visit (Feb. 14) was no exception. We told the server that we only had an hour, and they made a special effort to serve us quickly. The seafood is fresh and delicious. We have not found a better... More

I was in Houston for business and was able to visit with family for a bit. My sister and her husband recommended Pappadeauxs. We went on a Wednesday evening. It was slightly busy, but not swamped. The bar was a bit slow to get a drink. Drinks were good though. We were seated quickly and placed an appetizer order. A... More

You will not be disappointed while perusing the menu at this restaurant. There are so many combinations of seafood, everyone can find something that suits their appetite. The restaurant is loud but it is more of a party atmosphere instead of an annoyance. The open-concept kitchen is always fun to observe; so much action! Some nights there is live music... More

I stop at the location near the NRG stadium once a month for lunch with associates. Customer service is A-1 and the food is always good.

First, let me say I don't eat ANY seafood! I go with my hubby because he loves it. They do, however, have the best grilled chicken I've ever tasted. Juicy, plump, perfectly cooked with a yummy sauce on it. The sides are delicious, the desserts to die for! Everyone I know says the seafood is the very best so whatever... More

One of history's excellent Cajun seafood restaurant has become mediocre...Chicken giblets replaced with chicken broth ground beef! Don't know whether to call it re-engineering or Mexican fusion...need help!

This local family chain of restaurants offers something for everyone's palate...from Burgers to BBQ to Steak to Seafood. Pappadeaux's has a fine Cajun flavor to its menu. Of particular note is the Shrimp Etouffee, a wonderful concoction from "Naw'lins" which is, in my opinion a "must have" as a starter. For my main course I had the Gulf Coast Redfish... More
