I never have a complaint when I eat here. I call ahead for seating and I know what I want to eat when I arrive. I'm glad you still have a choice of fish and with that Blackened Catfish please.

Ate here with a large party and there was a wait of two hours, even with reservations. We were able to get seating for everyone in the bar area. Food was good. Service was okay. Slightly above average pricing.

Customer service was excellent; my waitress was courteous, knowledgeable, check on me quite often. The Sea Bass was delicious topped with large crab meat, bed of spinach and roasted tomatoes with butterfly shrimp. I recommend Pappadeaux to you!!!
