Me and my family and friends had a chance to eat here. The place was very clean. The staff was very friendly. They only opened for dinner though,and was very pricey but the food was worth it. Great variety in selections as well. Nice size portions

I try to stop here each time I'm in Houston. Great fresh seafood, excellent for lunch or dinner. I had the special today, trout and shrimp. Great good and great service. You can't go wrong here.

One of the few pleasant things about traveling by air these days is the opportunity to enjoy Pappadeaux's while on layover in Houston. The food and service here is on par with all their other locations...they do not take advantage of their "captive" clientele! We actually sometimes choose to fly through Houston in order to enjoy a meal here. (Otherwise... More

One of my favorite places to take my vendors from out of state when they come to visit. They are always impressed with the quality of the food. They always comment on how busy the restaurants are and yet how well they service.

When in Houston, I usually eat at Pappadeaux because it's convenient to Reliant Park. It has a fun and lively atmosphere. Service could be better. I particularly enjoy the shrimp cocktail and the Alaskan King Crab with butter or aioli. Both options are very good. The price is right. The produce is fresh.

Any restaurant that has "Pappas" as part of the name will assure you that it is excellent. The Pappas restaurant brands focus on high quality and have the best trained staff in the industry. Not cheap, but worth every penny!

We always enjoy eating here! There has never been a bad dish. The serving sizes are large enough to share, but who wants to do that?!?!!

I absolutely love this place every visit is amazing! The food has so much flavor! I can't live without the Jumbo Shrimp Brochette or the Mahi Alexander!

Had to fly into Houston for work, landed in Terminal A and literally traveled all the way to Terminal E to have dinner here before heading to my hotel. (It's above E4). It is fabulous! I had the seafood gumbo and the Crawfish Etoufee. Absolutely delicious!
