Three words: Pasta Mardi Gras- absolutely fantastic dish. A coworker recommended this dish- and I wind up ordering it every time. They make everything on premises- including the bread and pasta. The service is fast for lunch- which is appreciated. If you go once, you will be hooked.

We have been to this restaurant several times in the last twelve years and have always enjoyed the experience. Last night was a game changer. We are visiting our son and family in Allen, TX and usually make it a point to hit this spot and its sister Mexican restaurant next door. Our party of five arrived at 5:42 PM... More

I visited Pappadeaux with a large party. The wait staff was efficient and correctly modified all meals as ordered. I enjoyed the seared Alaskan halibut with Macadamia nut crust. I subbed fries for the Brussel sprouts. The fish was sweet and buttery, perfectly seasoned and generously portioned. I did not eat many fries, they were tasty, but the fish was... More

Papadeaux's is always good, this location is my all time favorite restaurant. If you like seafood or Cajun food, you won't be disappointed. I'd eat here every night if I could.

I would love to try other restaurants in the area, but we can't tear ourselves away from Pappadeaux. We eat dinner early so we always get right in. The food is fabulous, always fresh, always perfectly cooked - no overcooked seafood here. Although the prices are a little high, the portions are so huge, we always take enough home for... More

I have been coming to this restaurant for at least once a week for ten years and consider this my "neighborhood bar." Today I was totally disappointed. When commenting about no bread at the end of my visit, I was told that they have to "ring the bread in" and bartenders are not allowed to get bread for patrons sitting... More

Unfortunately, reservations are not taken until 24 hrs prior, but we all still had a great meal, as always. This is our "go to" place to take my elderly mother who still enjoys a good seafood dish. The service was a little slow this time. Really enjoy the Redfish Ponchitrain, really great dish.

Because of translation issue (which was my fault). Gilled vs Fried, i was not able to eat what has been served to me, not that it wasn't good, it looked fresh fish and well cooked. But i have issues to eat oily food (fried). My big surprise, the staff came and ask me if i didn't like the food and... More

Whenever we r in a city with a pappadeaus I have to go there. The crawfish bisque is the best bisque I have ever had. The soft shell crab and the mahi mahi with cream sauce are also my favorites. The service is Always excellent.
