I would eat here every week if I lived in the area. Great service, nice wine list, superb food; everything from a beautiful and delicious lobster Cobb salad to red snapper. But-those oysters. We couldn't get enough of them. Lively place for a group.

Wasn't all that impressed for all the great reviews. I had the blackened catfish and it was on the rubbery side, had to cut it with a knife😕Hubby had the fried crawfish tails and they were just okay at best.

Been several years since we were in Houston and there are a few restaurants that absolutely are a must go, no q's. Papa's Seafood is one of those.

I frequent this restaurant often....especially for the raw oysters. They are always fresh, briny, and delicious! Service is always spot-on and very friendly! My other favorite dish is the seafood cocktail (shrimp & crab combo). I have eaten many of their fish dishes as well...all very tasty, but I love their raw oyster the most!

Truly enjoyable food and service this evening with our Houston based family members. Sumptuous fresh from the Gulf oysters, five star crispy fried squid, the best lobster bisque and fried fish all served in a first rate seafood house atmosphere by a delightful young gentleman made for a delightful meal.

We enjoyed our lunch at Little Pappas Seafood. The interior has a classic, traditional decor -- it's nicer than we expected. The menu offers a wide variety seafood choices: oysters, fish, shellfish, fried seafood, po' boys and more. Everything we had was delicious, and the service was friendly and attentive. I'm looking forward to return.

There were 10 of us in our group. We had an excellent experience at this restaurant. The server was very helpful with menu suggestions. The sea food was delicious. We had everything from a salad and gumbo for one person onto full seafood platters for others. Everyone was very pleased.
