Regular stop before boarding long haul flight. Avoids the rubbish from many airlines. Busy but also quick, food great especially the appetizers. Portions very good as well, highly recommended. Most important prices similar to off airport dining no captive audience fleecing.

I have found that if you want to find any half decent airport restaurant, find one that is upstairs out of the way - they are always the best. Having just traveled 8 hours with another 8 hour flight ahead we wanted a good meal. From the moment we entered until the moment we left it was a very good... More

We had a layover in Houston as we missed our connection and had $28 in vouchers to spend for dinner. The UA customer service reccommended Pappadeaux, so we walked over to terminal F to find it. We were greeted by a friendly hostess and seated in a very comfortable booth. Reccommend them highly. We started with the Greek village salad... More

I recently visited Houston for a business trip, and my co-worker picked this restaurant for the Strawberry Lemonade that she said was the best she ever tasted. Typically, I avoid chain restaurants, as I like to get a feel for the city by its food and the people who work there and I like local specialties. I find chain restaurants... More

Where do I begin? It's not a seafood dive where fried is the menu. Pappadeaux has tasty grilled plates (e.g., Crispy Salmon, Ginger Salmon, or Pan grilled Tilapia) too! It's my go-to for oysters on the half-shell. Did I mention the fresh French bread or the tender green beans? My mouth is watering! It can be a bit loud at... More

It was nice to have a decent meal while we were on a four hour layover. Tons of attentive staff and the food was great, do try the oysters. We are heading back through Houston and will eat there again.

I ordered a Pan Seared Tilapia while enduring a 4 hr layover due to bad weather. After a few pregnant moments, Manager Greg informed me that he did not like the way my Tilapia looked and ordered his preparers to make a new one. For my inconvenience, he offered me something for my troubles. I selected the Lobster Bisque. Both... More

Pappadeaux is a chain restaurant for secretaries day and plump sales engineers on an expense account. It is loud, the staff turns over frequently, and they hustle you through there to get as many "turns" as possible. Located near arid, no eatery, industrial parks in Houston, this is your only choice. "I'll have the broiled dry farm raised redfish topped... More

This place was recommended by the girls at my hotel. After a short wait we were seated. The service was excellent. But the food, the food was phenomenal. For appetiser we started with shrimp and oysters. Both so fresh and flavoursome. Main course I had shrimp and scallops with mushroom risotto. The scallops were the best I've had. Perfectly cooked....

This location is unique in that they offer a buffet. This is a great option for a busy traveler. Once upon a time they used to let you pay a few dollars extra and take it to go. Still one of the best deals you can find in the airport. Make sure you have a big appetite though! This location... More
