“Great Consistent Cajun”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 27, 2012 via mobile

I've eaten at a number of Pappadeaux's throughout Texas, i.e., Austin, Houston, and Dallas. Probably one of the best, if not the best, Louisania Cajun food in Texas and as good as many in New Orleans. Although the service varies by restaurant location, the quality, taste and preparation of the food is always consistent and outstanding. It's always a worthwhile treat even if you have to wait!

“Very good!”

We came here while here on business which also happened to be my birthday. The food was great, and the service was even better. I'll be back!

“Great restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 11, 2012

Qonderful seafood and service. Decor is dark brick and white table cloths. Noise level is low and pleasant. Hostesses are very accommodating in table selection. Service is attentive and food is delicious. I had fried soft shell crabs which were as food as I have has anywhere. My wife and daughter had fried shrimp and loved it. And son-in-law had fried crawfish n étouffée combo. All delicious and maybe best of all there is plenty of parking and NO VALET. Kudos to the Pappas for another great restaurant.

“Great food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2012

The Pappas family dynasty rarely makes a misstep, and this long time (for Houston) seafood palace is always consistent. The Ponchatrain is incredible, the shrimp always good, crab bisque great, and the service is usually spot-on.

Just wish they would open up out on the Pacific Coast. The place can be pricy, but I'd rather have consistent quality (instead of that other competitor out of Houston, Joe's Crab Shack) that has expanded way beyond its capabilities. When I'm in Houston, this is one of my first stops.

“Amazing seafood”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2012

If you've read my other reviews, you know how I treasure finding a place that serves fabulous fish. My last great fish experience prior to my recent Houston trip was in Seattle 10 years ago. So I was weeping tears of joy the other night when I finished the very generous portion of perfectly cooked, very very fresh red snapper at the Pappadeaux on Westheimer. The Husband's salmon was equally excellent. Service was good right up until dessert. We got the sampler-- banana pudding, pecan pie, and creme brulee--and there was too much whipped cream on the creme brulee, but all else was good. Back to the service: The Husband would have ordered a brandy to go with but the desserts were dropped off in a rush and he was never asked. That was the only flaw in the evening. Our oyster duo appetizer was really good. We will be going back. Again and again and again . . .
