The Pappadeaux Seafood Kitchen has branches in both the Houston and Dallas Fort Worth airports. If you are faced with a flight delay or a long layover between flights as we were, the restaurant is a great place to spend some time. I have now dined at both Texas airport locations and have found them consistently excellent. The food is... More

I do not understand how this place is popular. Maybe people don't know what seafood is supposed to taste like. The fried shrimp seriously looked like shrimp you would get from a cafeteria. The color was odd, the taste was bad, and the prices were ridiculously high. Will never eat there again. Also, I am pretty sure our server forgot... More

I ate here for lunch for a work event. Very tasty appetizers including fresh oysters. I ended up ordering the Texas Redfish. It was cooked perfectly and was very tasty.

I had the Lobster bisque and it was great!! my mother enjoyed the gumbo. Don't order a balsamic salad unless you know how to mix the oil and balsamic yourself because it is brought out separately. Their Platters are a lot of food and the Sea Food Platter was good, but all fried except fish...I had it pan seared blackened.... More

I visit several locations through the year as they are conveniently located in DFW and IAH, menus are the same but there are small changes in flavor on their dishes; not in a bad way but different. Other than that, a great dining option in Houston Intercontinental.

We had lunch today at the newly opened Pappadeaux Seafood Kitchen 12420 East Freeway in Houston. Only open a short while, it is east of where the now closed Pappas use to be. We knew when we saw all the cars that we would have a long wait. We waited for 25 minutes. We shared a small Pappas Greek salad... More

My family of 5 visit this place between 2 and 3 times a month, the food is superb, great facility, friendly staff, little pricey but it's well worth it. Visit the original on Westimer, they beautiful landscape and a nice outside patio.

We wanted to find a nice, sit-down restaurant at IAH -- something that's in short supply, we discovered. A security agent pointed us to the International terminal where we found Pappadeaux Seafood Kitchen, and we were so glad to find a place with REAL food prepared well and served in a delightful upstairs retreat away from the throngs. Our flight... More

As part of our departure ritual from Houston, we always make Pappadeaux our last stop. It is the best seafood in town and the best Pappadeaux anywhere. The pain of a three hour weather delay dissolves when you dine on perfectly prepared salmon topped with grilled shrimp and a scallop or shrimp and crawfish etouffee. Start by sharing one of... More

I was in Houston for one night and was looking for the best seafood in the downtown area. Pappadeaux did not disappoint... The boudin was fantastic as an appetizer. I had a lobster bake for the meal and that had a little bit of everything in there.
