Fabulous Restaurant. Scrumptilicious Fried Oysters, Fred Crabclaws (fingers), & Fried Shrimp. You cannot go wrong treating yourself to Pappadeaux's. We will go back.

Whenever I travel to a city with a Pappadeaux I have to make a pilgrimage. This week's trip did not disappoint. Seated at the bar I enjoyed friendly, attentive service. The Shrimp Gumbo was delicious, as always. And the crusty French baguette is the perfect accompaniment. It's easy to overindulge at Pappadeaux but I was determined to have a light... More

Might have had the worst overall meal experience in years. Rude inept surly service, every dish was terrible, the wait was insufferable. Never again at this location. Oysters were tiny and filled with grit and shell. Etoufee was scorched. Salads not dressed.

It has been a number of years since we have had the opportunity to visit a Pappadeaux's. Our recent trip to the Dallas area for a baseball tournament fixed that. The food was just as we remembered...delicious and plentiful. The staff was all over it...fantastic job considering we had a group of 10. Can't wait to get back.

10 minute wait to be sat with a group, excellent food and stellar service. We had rounds of appetizers - the oysters and alligator were very good, rounds of drinks and a variety of food and didn't hear one complaint. Pappadeaux is always a treat.

Had a nice comfortable meal this week. Excellent server made the experience even better. The food is consistently great. Start with a hot appetizer, the gumbo is always just right. The crawfish and frog legs are on our favorites list. Be sure to indulge in dessert. A great meal in a pleasant atmosphere.

Ate here twice over the past two weeks. Food was still very good, but not as excellent as in the past. Oysters were good but both times seemed to have been sitting for a while before serving...warm, but not hot and breading was a bit soft. Catfish was very good but also only warm. Gumbo was superb as were the... More

Everything we had was, as always, very good, fresh, well prepared and served by attentive waitstaff. We love visiting Pappadeaux, and do so for most special occasions. The only time we have not enjoyed a visit there has not been because of the restaurant but because some groups come in for a celebration and they have no concept of inside... More

I love their food. I've never had a bad meal. My son tried king crab and is hooked. Everything was delicious and don't skip dessert but go early as there was an hour wait at 6 on a Saturday.

I love this restaurant for lunch and dinner. The seafood is great. The drinks are good. The service is almost always super and the atmosphere is fun. I've been there for business lunches, family meals and special occasions and enjoyed each experience. All restaurants have hiccups, and Pappadeaux is no exception, but they always make it right, quickly and with... More
