First Visit to Pappadeaux's on Richmond

She was excellent! The food was very good and the servings were generous. I saw a number of folks in our... read more

My new friend in Houston took me here for lunch and to my surprise it was good food. It's creole and I thought everything will be spicy hot. I had seafood grill with dirty rice. My scallops, shrimp and salmon were perfectly grilled. Our cocktail drinks were fabulous. I enjoyed my new friend and good food. It was worth it... More

We as a family love to eat here for seafood. Not many other places we go for this fare. I always try whatever the marquee is advertising and I've never gone wrong. We love the warm French bread. Try the swamp thing for an adult beverage. The atmosphere is dimly lit with white tablecloths. Yummy seafood dishes with many choices.... More

Here with a group and we had good service and good food. Restaurant wasn't crowded so we weren't rushed at all. Tasty grilled shrimp and crab cakes. The meat on the Caribbean lobster tail was a little hard to get out. Plenty of food, you might want to take some home.

We arrive there late 9 PM after a few u-turn provided by my GPS. Being so late, parking was almost at the front door and the interior is somewhat cajan and Victorian mixture. We were seated at a table by the window, our view was of a street. There is the aire of fine dining here. My companion wanted oysters... More

My husband & I just recently visited here to celebrate his birthday. Although the parking lot was full we were seated right away. This is a place we like to celebrate special occasions at because of our love of seafood & the New Orleans ambiance- dark wood paneling, red hanging lights, jazz paintings, etc. service is good and pleasant. We... More

If you want good New Orleans Style seafood eat here. I have eaten at several Pappadeauxs in the Houston area and all have good food and service. The Richmond Avenue location seems to always to be busy, but wait time is minimal. Boiled shrimp is excellent, fried soft shell crab is consistently fresh. If you like fried catfish it is... More

My trip to Houston included a visit to this restaurant. This was my first visit to Pappadeaux, but it will not be my last. The food was pricey but well prepared and full of flavor. The wait staff was attentive. The noise level was high, we were seated in an area with 2 groups that had 6+ people each; this... More

Wow! This was some of the BEST seafood I've eaten! The amounts are enough for 2 people and the staff is very friendly. I ordered the blackened catfish w/ a shrimp étouffée pistolette! Amazing! Also had the famous turtle brownie dessert w/ the caramel & chocolate sauce drizzled over it? Wow! This place is good eatin!!!!!
