Great place for seafood. We had the opportunity to sit outside. This moved us up from a one hour wait to five minutes. Weather was still nice and we all enjoyed a wonderful evening in the outside courtyard. Unfortunately, our warm evenings are probably gone...More

This is the real deal if you like creole cooking! Pappadeaux is a 'chain' restaurant which delivers consistency at every link in the chain I've dined across the country. Don't go if you are in a rush, this is a dinning experience

Wonderful experience in a charming and warm environment. The service by Daniell was very respectful and courteous and he made us feel very special. Plenty of seafood items to chose from and you are allowed to adjust your choices on select menu items.
