I've eaten at this particular brand before but never at the Houston airport...I arrived at the airport almost 3 hours early so since I had some time to kill and was hungry, I decided to have lunch here while waiting for my flight...You receive the SAME service that you would get if you were offsite...If you have the time, Stop...

Our family tradition for birthdays! Always very busy. Nice to sit on patio in fall. Slow service is just part of it. Be sure and pay with anything but cash. Takes forever to get change. Parking is hard. Expensive. Not my favorite but the kids love it.

This restaurant is on my list of regulars. Food and atmosphere are excellent. I recommend the Seafood fondue under appetizers but it is a meal. Friendly staff with music in background. Guaranteed to have a good time here. Nice wind selection also

You're stuck at the airport so you might as well have a delicious meal with great service. I don't think I have ever reviewed an airport eatery, but I will definitely make the exception here since I would gladly eat at this restaurant. The seafood is fresh daily and Kisha made excellent recommendations, provided great service and knew a lot... More

Even when I don't have time to eat, I grab a to-go salad just to enjoy later. I love the Greek salad with with fresh cold shrimp. The eatry is always busy, but they do a good job with trying to accommodate your flight schedule. Papadeaux is known for their excellent restaurants in the Houston area and this is no... More

This is a very crowded dining experience with food and service well managed. I would not say it was intimate dining. I will say that the food was well prepared and presented, not to mention worth returning!

They make all their sauces fresh and it was like fine dining, although the seats weren't great and it was, a bit cramped. The water went out at the airport and we were almost the last table they...
