OK, not quiet as authentic an atmosphere as their other main restaurants, but as far as airport food goes, this certainly count as one of the best. Wish you could get a huge bowl of the Shrimp Gumbo, instead of just the small dish but the menu was as good as the regular places and made the 16 hour flight... More

Bounced in here between flights as nothing else was grabbing me. Thought at least I could get a cold drink at the bar. Sat at the bar and the servers were on me straight away. Ordered my drink and a menu. Wide variety on the menu and settled for some unhealthy fried shrimp and fries. BEST I EVER HAD! Servers... More

A good place for lunch with friends, but go early if you can. After the place starts filling up, the noise level can be a bit distracting.

We had a limited amount of time to get something to eat before our airplane flight was scheduled to depart. The hostess asked how much time we had, and did everything she could to make sure we were able to eat a good meal and easily make our flight. The food was as expected; delicious.

Went to the Reliant location last week. The food is delicious as always. The service was great. The wait for this location is insane! We were told it would be about forty-five minutes... took about one hour and fifteen minutes. Worth the wait though. Can't go wrong with any of the pappas platters here.

If you are stuck at the Houston international take a walk up to this place. Definitely worth it. The drinks are generous. The staff was awesome and the food was sumptuous. Cajun cooking at its best. Stunning oysters too. Thanks Rachael. You are a great hostess.

One of my favorite seafood restaurants. The portions are huge, the price is moderate, and the drinks are strong. Cant go wrong with this place. The bar area is one of the most entertaining and social section I have ever encountered at any restaurant. Great food.

Thank Daniel F
