I went there with my mind already focus on a good old king crab and that's what I got. And it was terrific. My colleague had a nice shrimp dish also pretty filling and tasteful. I'll be back!

Pappadeaux has great seafood. Wait staff was excellent at the 610 Kirby location. I was receiving poor service at the River Oaks/Richmond location. I complained about it and requested to have the waiter changed. The manager changed the waiter and the waiter was excellent. The waiter gave excellent service. The seafood platter is excellent. Excellent menu.

Large portion of etouffee. Oysters on half she'll are great. Bread was perfect with butter. No room for dessert. I usually order this dish. Everything here is good. Love the bar.

My parents stopped by the original Pappas Fish House near Rice University when I was a kid in the '60s, and I loved the huge aquarium at the door. My wife and I have been coming to Pappas and Pappadeaux ever since. We live in Oklahoma and have actually driven to Dallas under the auspices of some business thing or... More

Whenever I am in Houston I always make Pappadeaux one of my stops for dinner. The original one on Westheimer is my choice and the setting is terrific nicely decorated in dark woods and just the layout of the restaurant even when it is busy you do not feel crowded. The service is wonderful every time and the food is... More

I was here on a layover and just wanted a snack and a beer. The seafood gumbo was very good. Very flavorful. It went very spicy but a little Tabasco solved that problem. They also have decent selection of microbrews. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The main entrees are fairly expensive.

We always enjoy Pappadeaux Restaurant when we want to splurge a bit. Almost everything on the menu is great. The drinks are great for those who like to have a bit of alcohol with your meals. The menu ranges from fried to blackened food. Your choice of many cajun dishes. If your wallet is tight, I would not suggest going... More
