During a long layover at Houston Hobby, I found this restaurant while looking for a place to have a good salad. The salad of choice was the Pappadeaux special salad with shrimp. It was delicious. Service was fast and good. I would go back there easily.

Pappadeaux has to be the best seafood restaurant created. We visited twice in 3 days. They accommodate large parties easily with little to no wait.

Overall a good experience, allthough maybe a bit pricey in regards to the presentation and taste (boring and bland). Good and fast service.

My wife and I always look forward to eating at Pappadeaux Seafood Kitchen. Recently when traveling trough Houston Hobby we ate here again. This time with our daughter-in-law. Once again we had great service and excellent food. Our waiter was great and we were all happy with our food choices. Can't wait until we get to visit another Pappadeaux Seafood... More

My husband and I have been regulars here for years, we dine here for work and pleasure during our connections. Today we had a huge problem with the hostess. Can't remember her name, she had long black hair, little big and with a even bigger attitude. She showed us a table, it was very dirty, we asked if it could... More

On advice of dinner companions (who are Pappadeaux regulars and huge fans), I skipped appetizer and settled on a naked fish entree. The Blackened Mahi is served with dirty rice for which any side can be substituted. My companions chose fish smothered with sauce and crab or shrimps and pronounced both delicious. The Mahi was tasty but didn't prompt raves.... More

We ate at the Houston Hobby location for dinner. We had the spinach dip appetizer which was very good. We each order a soup, a gumbo and a bisque. Yum is the best word to describe them. The food was very good. The waitress was friendly and she checked on us regularly. My only complaint is that it was expensive.... More

Great place for dinner but get there early because it gets crowded. But it is worth the wait. I wish they would open one in Virginia Beach. This is probably my most favorite restaurant. Doesn't matter what I order, it's always good.
