We had the salad made at the table, it is great. Also I had the Texas redfish and my buddy had the fried seafood platter with a cup of seafood gumbo. Everything was great as usual. Our server Ricki was great. Not the too much, but always there when you needed something. We will come again.

I have been to a few Pappadeauxs and this one is the worst. Busy as usual, but flying solo. I can put my name on the list or just wait for a seat at the bar. 10 minutes later, name on the list. To many people drinking too get a seat at the bar. Finally a little round table opened... More

We visited papadeauxs on a Saturday evening around 7. There was an hour wait, but there was plenty of room outside to sit. Comfy couches, outdoor fans and fountains made the time pass quickly. Once we were seated, I ordered blackened catfish with bake potato and my husband ordered the seafood Mardi Gras pasta. Both entrées were delicious! Authentic Louisiana... More

Papadeaux is always good after a doctors appointment!! Love the soft shell crab and asparagus! Wife had the mixed grill and we shared the crab fingers. Boy we're we hungry but filled up fast!! The only thing that marked this visit was the service was a little slow..the waiter must have gotten lost in the kitchen during this slow Tuesday... More

Visited last Sunday night. Service was super attentive. Food was really good, we had the fresh oysters, seafood brochette,pan seared trout with shrimp and fried catfish/shrimp dinner. Portions were generous. Creme brulee off the desert tray was a disappointment and $25.00 for fried catfish and shrimp was out of line. Overall a good dinner and would definitely go back.

Excellent service and the food was sooo amazing. It was my first time and the waiter was so polite. He explained the menus and all the offerings. I would definitely retune on my next trip to Houston. The creme brûlée was sooooo tasty.

I went to try this place for the first time. I had heard good comments about it, and it was what I expected. The place is nice and the food is great. The plate is well served and it will fill you up. I had the seafood skewers served with dirty rice, and it was great. The plate was super... More
