Favorite Seafood in Houston

I've eaten here a number of times when visiting the Museum District in Houston. Every time has been an excellent dining experience. We're early eaters (5:30 or so, so the lack of reservations hasn't been a problem--there may be waits for later dining (one time , we did eat at the bar, which I... read more

I love these style of restaurants and pappadeaux is my favorite. But pappas gives you the same flavor without all the Cajun dishes but select seafood entrees!! I love all there restaurant this one is hard to find but right on the corner of s. Shepard

We had a fabulous experience at Pappas Seafood House. My husband and I split the redfish and crab sliders. The waiter split them for us and served them looking like full meals. The fish was delicious and just melted in my mouth. The sliders were tasty and on little toasted breads. The waiter was attentive without being obnoxious and when... More

Met some friends at Pappas seafood house on Shepherd and Richmond. It's always amazing how clean the place is, how they pay attention to detail and how amazingly good their food is. The must have Greek salad was ordered and Celeste suggested a fine vintage! Redfish was fresh, but huge, and so we split. It was 110% good. Fresh, cooked... More

We had a crowd of 10 and the staff handled all of the requests graciously. Food was delicious - soft shell crab not listed on menu was yummy surprise. Difficult parking lot to maneuver.

I have been here four or five times when I have been in Houston on business, and have never been disappointed. I went last night with a co-worker when we arrived into town and, once again, had a great experience. He had the Halibut, which I've had before, and said it was great. I went with the seafood cobb salad... More

The Pappas chain restaurants are all over Houston and never disappoint. This one by Bush Airport is always excellent. Clean, reasonably priced, attentive and fast service, even during rush hours. Never been disappointed yet....

My wife and I had a layover in Houston on our way to Mexico. It was Friday during Lent, and we asked Hotel folks for a nearby seafood restaurant. We chose Pappas over Joe's Crab Shack as it was a Texas place. The place was jammed, so we had a drink and waited for table, and we were really hungry... More
