Doesn't everyone love Pappadeaux? What's not to? Food and drinks are consistently wonderful. Hard to hold a conversation due to the noise level, but will definitely come back!

Though it is my custom to avoid chain restaurants when traveling, I make an exception for all of the Pappas family restaurants. Pappadeaux is my go to for cajun / seafood when in Houston. Love their crayfish combination platter, which given the amount of food is quite a steal!

This is our go-to place for seafood in our neighborhood. The best fried shrimp ever. Always delicious and cooked perfectly. Same with peel and eat shrimp. Actually, everything we've had there is always good so you can't go wrong with anything on the menu. And the bread pudding is divine, too. Save room! Waitstaff is always friendly and very helpful...

One of my favorite seafood places in Safford next to Baytown. Quality seafood but a little heavy on the seasoning, which can overwhelm the natural fishy taste. No dress code; dress up or dress down, even saw a lady in her night gown. Crazy!

I live in West U and this is our "go to" seafood restaurant. They are consistent and have delicious food and drinks. Whether you go with a date or with family, you will not be disappointed. Try their calamari or their appetizer trio! 😋 My four year old loves their fried alligator 👌🏼

Great food, great variety, so many sea food and non sea food options. The service is decent - I would definitely go back.

Mardi Gras pasta is my fave. Large portions. Adequate service. Appetizers: fried alligator and mozzarella sticks. Cajun food at its best! Dessert: crime bruele ( which is usually not my favorite, surprisingly delicious!)

Thank tangytravels
