“Deaux-licious!”
Reviewed April 28, 2013

Was at Pappadeaux today. Had the Mixed Seafood Grill with dirty rice. Very tasty. I really, really like their jambalaya, but they only serve it at lunch on Friday.

“No brainer! Eat here for amazing creole food”
Reviewed April 27, 2013

This is my favorite restaurant. Worth the wait on a Saturday night. Make sure you try the shrimp fondeaux. Be sure to have a Swampthing cocktail. VERY good!

The stuffed crab and fried shrimp are to die for. The baked potato is out of this world. Words can't describe their baked potatoes.

Desserts??? All good. The cheesecake if phenomenal. The banana bread pudding is huge and oh so good! This is my favorite seafood restaurant. The greek salad is amazing also.

Great ambiance - unlike any other restaurant. You would never know it's a chain. I always visit when I am Chicago or Texas.

“EXCEPTIONAL!”
Reviewed April 25, 2013

Appetizers were generously proportioned--too much so--Calamari, Duo Oysters and Lump Crab & Spinach dip were enough for a meal--particularly with the bread loaf replenishments! Grilled Caribbean Lobster Tails, perfectly cooked filet mignon, and succulent king crab left no room for huge decadent dessert! I'll be back soon!
