This was a great place and very busy however, our group of 5 was seated right away. Mostly fish, some chicken & steak and no complaints! I had Mahi with lump crab over butternut squash drizzled in a chili lime sauce. It was to die for!! Staff was friendly, quick, and knowledgeable. I highly recommend this restaurant!

Had lunch a this Pappadeaux's and it was great, all of it. Food, service, atmosphere. The crawfish etouffee was one of the best things I have eaten.

I took my mom to dine after a long day with my father at the hospital. We ordered drinks but it took a long time to make it to our table. The bread wasn't warm, it felt a bit reheated and stale. My Seafood Gumbo was lukewarm. My moms Cesar Salad was made tableside but the dressing she had to... More

From the bread, to the spring roll appetizer, to my fried soft shell crab, I was extremely underwhelmed by the food at this restaurant. Our bread tasted very bland. I would be willing to come back to this restaurant & try another dish, but nothing I ordered reflected all the hype around this restaurant. I will say that the interior... More

Love this place. The Pappas Family really knows the restaurant business. Great atmosphere, menu selections, good wine choices and warm bread. Yum! Always fresh seafood and excellent choice of sauces.

Stopped here for dinner before going to the Texas Bowl at NRG. Even with all of the people going to the game we only had about a 10 minute wait. Our server was great and the food was exactly what you expect from Pappa, fantastic. Pappas restaurants are always worth a visit when in Texas.

We came to Houston from Kansas City to visit family and our hosts took us to Pappadeaux and we were in for a treat. My meal was delicious but if there is one thing I would highly recommend if you have never had it....GATOR! Everyone says try it, and that it tastes just like chicken. Perhaps that's true, but its...

The Pappadeaux seafood restaurant chain produces consistently the best food regardless of the location across the U.S. This particular restaurant was excellent and everything we ordered was well prepared and delicious. The night we were there a really good New Orleans jazz band was playing and we truly enjoyed the music. All in all if you want excellent New Orleans... More

I have been to Pappadeaux several times, but this was my first visit to this location. I was not disappointed. The service was excellent and the meal was delicious. Definitely a highlight of my trip to Houston.
