Two couples. Redfish Ponchatrain with seafood gumbo and shrimp cocktail starters. Perfect. Our server, Paul Smith, made it a very enjoyable meal. If you are in “central” Houston and want excellent seafood, go to Pappas Seafoood. If you enjoy superior, personable service, ask for one...More

No visit to Houston is complete without a trip to Pappas Little Seafood Kitchen. Also enjoyed Onion Rings but those got devoured before I could get a picture!
