Food is just OK. Nothing spectacular especially for the price. Coming in is a nightmare if there is a line. The front desk is packed and folks are trying to get in, get out and get around this desk while folks are trying to get on the list... What a mess. They do use your cell number and will send...

Expensive, but the food was great. I had some fish, shrimp, and scallops while my wife had risotto and scallops. we beganbwith raw oysters that were divine and Pappadeaux makes a kind of red hot sauce that is tangy and I love it with the horseradish and lemon I ordinarily use. Service was great too.

Was seated immediately on a very busy Tuesday night. Service was excellent and friendly. I ordered the Shrimp Creole and grits and it was excellent. There was so much food that I was able to have a second meal from the leftovers. It was during happy hour and the place was hopping. Excellent choice for a business dinner as well.

We went to dinner at Pappadeaux Seafood Restaurant on I-35 in Austin, Texas. The Pappadeaux's in Dallas and Duncanville, Texas is much better. Our order was not cooked ad requested and I had to send my order back. I was kind of disappointed in the service and the food. I will stick to the Pappadeauxs in the Dallas metropolitan area.

After having this restaurant somewhat hyped up by our host I was really looking forward to the dining experience here. Needless to say overall the food is pretty much average. The atmosphere as well as our wait staff were exceptional. I consider myself a foodie and have a broad palette. As much as I wanted to be as impressed by... More

Had incredible service and delicious grilled scallops over risotto. Our first visit. Across from our hotels so it was very convenient. Very broad menu. Manager knew we were first timers and treated us to dessert. We felt very welcomed.

This is an upscale seafood restaurant with a laid back atmosphere. We were there during their 30th Anniversary Promotion so it was a great value. The day we were there, the Seafood Platter was half price. The food was plentiful and good. The stuffed shrimp is spicy, the blue crab cake was delicious, the tilapia was good, too. We were... More

Pappadeauxs is great. There is plenty to chose from on the menu and if you want something different ask for it. They usually accommodate the request. Great waitstaff, good food, so what else is there?

Ate dinner here on a Sunday night, solo. So crowded that I had to eat at the bar, but it was worth it. Beer was cold, fried shrimp (medium) dinner was great. Plenty of shrimp, too many fries, but no salad included. And, the fresh bread was superb. Not a cheap meal, but high quality.

Lunch and dinner with friends during a conference. Our service was excellent. The food is good and what we know we will get at Pappadeaux. The Frog Legs appetizer go great with the Margarita.
