“Service and oysters saved a star”
Reviewed February 8, 2013 via mobile

$5.95 special for a dozen oysters (actually 14 oysters), quick service, and a nice atmosphere saved the place from a three star rating. I am a "home chef" who cooks a lot of seafood so maybe I am a bit picky, but it was a bit pricey for some basic fare, although the food was tasty.

“Wow”
Reviewed January 23, 2013 via mobile

Pappadeaux was amazing. The service, excellent, the music, wonderful. I thoroughly enjoyed my lunch. It was easy to access from the highway heading to San Antonio. I have nothing bad to say, I enjoyed every bit and bite of my experience.

“Don't order steak here.”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

I don't like seafood but had no choice. As usual one should never order steak at a seafood restaurant because it more often than not will not be good. This holds true here. The restaurant was also very hot when we arrived. About 1/2 way through our meal I think they turned on the A/C.

“Crowded but worth it”
Reviewed January 20, 2013

Was a long wait even early in the evening but the food was so good. The prices are steep, so don't have a MCI when you get the check. Try to have a beer BEFORE you get there or afterwards as the Iced Tea is expensive enough!

“I just don't get why this place is so popular”
Reviewed January 15, 2013

Undercooked fish, covered with a sauce that looks and tastes like the sauces they used to put on airline food to keep it from drying out. Good bread but I can get that at a bakery
