Been to quite a few places to eat while travelling. Tend to rate the US food as bland. This one is a gem. None of the faux Ambiance that seems so prolific around here. Big floor, lots of people - lots of enjoyment. As a foreigner, this is a great choice for introduction to the food from this part of... More

We ate here, the service was excellent, the food was good. Was it authentic? I don't know. But pricey for the food served. Take it or leave it

The price of the food goes up with each visit and the portions get smaller and smaller. The fill your plate with fries and very little of what you are actually ordering, but the food is still delicious. Love the oysters and hot boiled shrimp.

I'm really having difficulty ending this relationship but I think I must accept that for Pappadeux's...blackened means extra salty and butter sauce means, lemon sauce with butter. I have tried three locations...different dishes and it is all the same. Pappadeux's it is time for us to go our separate ways. While the service is great, Aaron, our waiter was superb...the... More

A great seafood restaurant! Food served hot and fairly quickly. We live in the area and go there from time to time. My favorite is the Pasta Mardi Gras! My husband loves the crawfish etouffee. Family friendly, and is loud due to low ceilings, music and crowd noise. Must try this one.

Feeling like seafood? Want the best? Here it is! Had giant shrimp and cheesy grits. Soooo good. Grilled, tasty, tender flavorful shrimp. Started out with a Swamp Thing alcoholic beverage, three parts in one. Love it. French bread always crispy on outside, soft in middle. Fresh baked. Soft butter that doesn't tear the bread. No room for dessert tonight. Highly... More

Pappadeaux is a good place to go for any occasion but excellent for happy hour. My friends and I meet there 2-3 times a month. Everything on the menu is good and the happy hours drinks are delicious. They have the best baked potatoes and all of their seafood dishes are very tasty.

Great food, always consistently prepared (quality control), great atmosphere. Expect to spend about $40 per person minimum. I've been going to Papa's restaurants for over 25 years.
