Not inexpensive but taste and quality make it worth the price

We had lunch there for the first time and will return again. It is pricy if you are not used to paying at least $14 for lunch. Service was good and they make a great margarita.

As a native Marylander, I've always been a big fan of freshly prepared seafood. I was impressed by the service and the food at "Pappas", everything with our group was well prepared and full of flavor. The oysters were fantastic!

While in Houston for a recent trip, I was able to visit this location. The food at Pappadeaux's never disappoints. Everything was hot, tasty, and brought to our table in a timely manner. Katy, our waitress, was very friendly and attentive. This was the first time I tried the crab macaroni and cheese and it was awesome!! The shrimp was... More

If you like your seafood fried and/or spicy, you will probably like the food. But the service is average at best and the noise level makes it impossible to carry on any kind of conversation.

I have been frequenting Pappadeaux for over 20 years now, and have never had any complaints about the food. The quality and quantity is perfection every single time, so I have no complaints about what's going on in the kitchen, because those people sure know what they're doing! It was no different this visit and we put up with the... More

Great, fresh seafood. Just like all other Pappa's endeavors, they do it they best. The seafood was fresh, prepared perfectly and seasoned just right. Great service is always present in a Pappa's restaurant.

I make regular visits to Houston, usually alone. This time my wife went along. She loves Papadeaux, so it became our choice for dinner on arrival. We collected a niece who lives nearby and had never eaten there. It was Wednesday evening, so seating was prompt. We shared the Greek salad, and before it was gone our dinners arrived. As... More

I love Pappadeaux (probably to an unhealthy extent), but this was the worst service I've ever had at a Pappa's restaurant. It wasn't even that busy and it took the waiter 30 min just to get our orders and get us water after asking several times. The food was up to par, but in all it was a pretty aggravating... More

Our family orders from here at least once a month. If you plan on dining in, you may want to call in reservations as they get really busy. Weekends it is cramped and you may have long waits. My daughters favorite dish is shrimp and crawfish etouffee; she says it is the best ever and she's had it at over... More

I love this seafood restaurant chain. I visit one in just about every city I can where they have one. I enjoyed my visit to this one as I expected I would. My food was delicious. I always order the seafood platter for the stuffed shrimp, stuffed crab cake, and other delicious seafood. I like the swamp thing alcoholic beverage... More
