This restaurant is one of Pappadeaux's finest. Our 1st visit was to celebrate my birthday; the service was excellent and the food delicious. i think the restaurant is suitable for families whose children have been taught manners.

Fantastic place to dine, always at the top of my list when in Houston and Dallas area. The crawling was amazing. The second dine experience during the stay I had the talapia and broccoli(well seasoned). You will not be dissatisfied.

We were headed to S. America on a flight that was NOT offering complimentary food. Pappadeaux was situated in terminal E next to our gate. Great stop to fuel up and pass the time before the flight. Service was very attentive. The portions were huge. My son ordered the seafood platter and took 1/2 on the plane with us. The... More

Pappadeauxs are my favorites for seafood in Houston. There are several around Houston and the ones I've visited have been consistently good. Their variety is great and preparation is on target. Some people I've taken there didn't like their meals but then I would have never ordered the dishes they selected. Their 'wait-staff' leave lots to be desired as they... More

This restaurant is close to our hotel, but we always come early, it gets crowded quick. The service is hit and miss, but the food is always delicious. We actually enjoy just filling up on 2 or 3 appetizers. The fondue can't be beat!

My cousin came to visit and we had dinner here one night. The waiter was very friendly and did an awesome job. We got our drinks and food in a timely manner and he checked on us several times to make sure everything was going well. My favorite drink would be their signature Swamp Thing and my favorite entree is... More

If you dread stopovers and airport mayhem, stop at Pappadeaux's at the Houston airport and find a slice of heaven. Amazing staff greet and treat you like family. If you have never had Crispy Fried Alligator...you HAVE TO try Crispy Fried Alligator. There is not a seafood dish we have tried there that isn't 10 out of 10. Large portions... More

I love seafood, unfortunately I'm allergic to shell fish. I'm happy Pappadeaux offers delicious fish entrees for those that have shellfish allergies.
